My husband and I normally go on cruises and decided to try an all inclusive this time for our 2 year anniversary. [September 23-30, 2013]. What can I say? Le Blanc Spa Resort over exceeded our expectations on quality food and service. We have read countless reviews on many different resorts and overall features. If you want a place that offers exceptional service, this is the place to visit!
The rooms are nice, but don't expect a huge balcony if you book a honeymoon suite. It's very narrow, however if you book it with an ocean view - then it doesn't really matter. The sliding doors open very wide, so you really get a gorgeous view anyway. We read a review about the multiple shower heads not being strong enough - this is only true if you don't pull the nob out hard enough. So, remember to pull out HARD and you will enjoy your shower. The hot tubs in the honeymoon suite made our overall experience much more romantic. Just let your floor butler know you want it set up on your way to dinner. You will come back to your room with rose petals, bottle of champagne, some sweets and the hot tub all ready to go. They also offer variety of different pillows in addition to the ones already in the room. We asked for the therapeutic ones. Very comfy!
We love to eat!!! Presentation was so pretty that I almost didn't want to eat it. Amazing! They have the Buffet (Blanc International), Asian (Blanc Orient), Italian (Blanc Italia) and French (Lumiere) restaurants. First, the food in the Blanc Orient was just okay. However, keep in mind that coming from an Asian background I am spoiled with lots of great authentic asian foods. The service was, of course, excellent! Blanc Italia and Blanc International were good. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Lumiere (French). The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! You have to make reservations at Lumiere, so make sure you do that as soon as you arrive. We dined there twice and loved every single dish - the DUCK is a must try!
I also highly recommend the Romantic Dinner on the beach. It's extra, but so worth it!
We were a little worried about the alcohol perhaps being watered down. Nope...they use premium alcohol! Margaritas were sooo delicious...try the cucumber one! Also ask for Isaac at the pool bar to make you his special. He's awesome. Another plus with this amazing resort is that when you order wine, they open a BRAND NEW bottle every single time. Even if you tell them you only want one glass.
Not much to do, except relax and enjoy the beautiful, clear blue water. We were okay with this since we booked excursions elsewhere. The concierge in the front will help guide and book everything for you. Xel-Ha is a place you should visit. Very beautiful and the lazy river (an actual river) was such a unique experience. Also, swimming with dolphins! Fun, fun, fun!
Le Blanc does not have a nightlife. However, take a cab down the road (about 3 mins driving, 15 mins walking) and there is your nightlife. Hubby and I love to experience everything and we enjoyed all the clubs. As soon as you get out of the cab, people will bombard you, so just stay tough and try to get the best deal. We went to 4 different ones and enjoyed Coco Bongo the most - Definitely order a bottle to really enjoy ($235 for kettle one, service, tip, and admission) or pay for the gold member's area. Great entertainment and dancing! Highly recommend that place if you enjoy that kind of scene.
The staff at Le Blanc really helped us with information on everything! Ask them, they are great with it!
The spa itself was absolutely beautiful inside. We always get massages and these ladies have strong hands. You will enjoy the deep tissue! Overall very relaxing environment. Prices are a little on the high side.
Let's just say I was very sad that I had to leave. I will definitely be returning and recommending this resort to all of my friends and families. Thank you for making our trip so memorable!
