We just got back from the Le Blanc Resort in Mexico. We stayed for 6 days. This is a place to go to relax. If you want to party, you may want to stay someplace else. Let me give you a play by play of our stay:
When we arrived at the airport it went rather smooth. Just as our transfer documents said, our travel to the hotel was waiting outside of the terminal, blue shirts and khaki pants. You need to walk outside of the terminal and down the sidewalk to the right. The drop off took about 30 minutes as we had to from off other guests to their resorts.
Check in went well also as I had sent an email prior to arrival asking for an upgrade to a ocean view. This was only $9 extra total for taxes as we were able to use our resort credit for the rest of the charge ($12 per day).
Room was beautiful and the view was breathtaking - rm 918. There is a butler on each floor who will do everything from unpacking your clothes to drawing you a bath. He unpacked our clothes which saved me a lot ot time.
Romantic dinner on the beach is a must. Surf and Turf was served and it was very delicious. We used our resort credit for this as well and were taxed $50. You will use about 450 resort credits. The French restaurant was amazing. Portions are small but very delicious. We ate there twice. Reservations are needed. The Italian restaurant was good. Although no reservations are needed, I would suggest making one or you could have a very long wait to be seated. We waited about an hour. Room service was wonderful--always arrived on time for breakfast and was always hot. It was nice to have breakfast each morning while looking at the beach from our room. The international restaurant was delicious--that's the main restaurant with a buffet for breakfast and lunch. Very good selection of food.
The most beautiful water-very blue and quiet. We rented a cabana one day for $129 US which you cannot use your resort credit for ( which makes no sense at all). It's yours from 9-5 and includes a bottle of champagne. It was nice to rent this so that we could be out of the sun. It is sooo comfortable, we took a nap on it. There are plenty of chairs at the pool to sit on. The pools are very quiet. One couple had brought an i device docking station to play music at the pool however they were told by the staff that those devices are prohibited and that they needed to turn off the music. For that reason, we left one day to visit the Moon Palace. We had a ball. There was sooo much to do and different varieties of food being cooked around the pool area. You have access to many of the palace resorts while staying at LeBlanc--$35 cab ride each way unless you catch the shuttle from the neighboring Palace resort.
There is a sports bar on the third floor which was fun. It was packed with guests and everyone was dancing and having a good time. By 12:30, the party is done usually.
Each guest gets a complementary manicure, pedicure and 25 minute back massage. Arrive early for your appointment so that you can enjoy the other amenities of the spa. AMAZING!! Make sure you get yours. You may also use up to a 500 resort credit for the spa. My husband received a massage and I a facial--best facial iv ever had.
We got plenty of rest and took in a lot of sun. The staff was very polite and made it a point to do what they needed to do to ensure you had a great time.
We found that we were limited in what we could use our resort credit of 1500 points on. For instance...you may only use 100 points in the jewelry store, may purchase only tequila, Mexico cigars and use 50 pts for sunglasses in the gift shop (you need a gift certificate from the concierge for the tequila), cannot be used on excursions.
Don't forget to ask your butler to draw your bath and bring your champagne and cho. covered strawberries one evening. Butlers on the 9th floor took great care of us. We would comeback when we want to rest, otherwise, we need a little more action.
