I stayed with my husband for a quick get away without the kids. Was there April 5-9th.
We had a Junior Suite in the Sea Tower on the 7th floor. PERFECT view! I watched the sun come up over the ocean evey morning. We thought the room was excellent, two baths that were totally up to date. We had 2 balconies, the one off the bedroom had 2 chairs & lots of room. We thought the bed was fine - not hard & we have a Temper-pedic @ home.
The pool was georgous! It is so spacious. We did have some trouble with getting a prime chair (sun & option of shade), so you might need to do that early. (But we went Easter break) They had some pool activities in the afternoon.
I really liked where this hotel was located. We checked out the FA Grand Coral Beach & Dreams. I have to say I would still pick the Condesa. Although we did not see the rooms at either place, the grounds & pool area at those hotels were unimpressive. It really felt like a concrete jungle where those hotels are located. The Condesa has a really great tropical feel. I love to be surrounded by native foliage & flowers. That's what the Condesa had.
The food was really good. All mexican - which I like. But we had dinners at La Dolce Vita (good, walking distance), Lorenzillo's (great atmosphere), and Laguna Grill (walking distance & EXCELLENT food & great atmosphere!). I happened to not like the margaritas at the hotel - too mixy? Not sure what the problem was but I just had strawberry daqs & they were great. We ate the salsa & pico de gallo & had no issues.
This place is SUPER clean. We always saw somebody cleaning something.
The spa was great - had 2 massages. However the "spa maid" - not sure what to call her because I was not used to it - was directing you on where to go, like sauna first, then steam room, then jacuzzi - but I happend to like that since it turned out to be so relaxing using the facilities in that order, before a massage. I am more used to the American way & doing whatever you want to in a spa - I am sure you could, but didn't test it ...
The beach - this is such a hot topic. It is a real shame that they have no beach. We had NO beach the first 2 days, then the winds changed & we had some beach. Hubby was able to go swimming. (too many rocks for me as I am not a great swimmer) The water was beautiful, the color amazing. I hope no more hurricanes come & swipe more beach away but you can't prevent it - it's not their fault. The hotel worked real hard when the winds changed to get people down to the beach. You can see where the stairs are to the beach that the ocean washed away about 4 feet of sand! Imaging that - the sand was 4 feet higher then where it is now - crazy! Families were still having a great time playing along the beach we had. (There was more beach at GCB & Dreams but the waves were huge - no swimming! And the sand was dirty with seaweed & such.)
We went to Walmart and felt totally fine. Once the bus stops for Walmart you still have to walk about a block to get to it. I was impressed how nobody bothered us. We saw NO homeless people, no one asked us for money. I really thought we would see that. On our way back from Walmart, we were the only Americans on the bus with standing room only, I thought we would get this weird vibe, but didn't . Mexicans in Cancun are great & go about their business. It's not like other places where the natives don't like you.
Caution about the bus - they seem to try & beat each other to the next stop. They seem to go sooo fast then slam on the breaks for the next stop - It would make me sick! And I don't get motion sickness! (but I do on a Cancun bus!!) They also start to go as soon as the last person steps on the bus - even before they pay!! So please - if you are traveling with little ones make sure you hold on to them, and brace yourself.
We just went to relax for a few days, no night life for us, just nice dinners. The lobby lounge is nice too - (sometimes they have a DJ) but just played good music when we were there. It is def. not a party hotel, which we liked.
We can't wait to go back with & without the kids!
