My husband and I came here on our honeymoon. We decided to do 5 nights here and 5 nights at excellence playa mujeres. As soon as we arrived at excellence we wanted to turn around and go back to le blanc. No place compares. It is by far the best resort we have ever stayed at and ever will. We felt like royalty the whole time. We had 2 very minor issues (one with check in and another with transportation for our excursion) but I will not let those issues bring down my overall experience. Le blanc is such a tranquil, serene, modern, luxurious, beautiful place. We were definitely one of the youngest couples there (we are in our late 20s) but it didn't matter because everyone tends to keep to themselves. As soon as we arrived we were greeted with moist hand towels, champagne glasses filled with coconut milk, and a heated neck wrap. Le blanc has different aromatherapy diffusers all around the resort so everywhere you go it smells so nice. What we loved about this resort is that everything is in one building. Restaurants, spa, all 3 pools, gym, etc all in one location.
The staff was like no other. Everywhere you turn someone is there greeting you with a smile on their face, asking if there is anything you need. Waiters, pool staff, concierge, house keeping, butlers- they were all amazing. Everything is done for you at le blanc. From pressing the elevator button for you to spreading a towel on your lounge chair to wiping your machine at the gym, they do everything for you. Each floor has a personal butler which is amazing. Using the le blanc iphone app (or by pressing 0 from your phone) you can request a variety of different pillows (scented, memory foam, hypoallergenic, etc), aromatherapy oils for the in-room oil warmer, and they even fill your jacuzzi for you with your choice of aromatherapy bath salts and sprinkled with rose petals. They iron for you, pack up your luggage, wheel in an entire table when you order room service. We ordered a bottle of wine at dinner and within minutes of returning to our room, someone had delivered the rest of the bottle to us. At the pool someone is always there to take your drink order and you have it within minutes. They also put an ice bucket with bottles of water next to your chair by the pool which is a nice gesture I had never seen elsewhere. Anything you ask for at le blanc, it's yours within minutes. All the staff also speaks English very well.
Food was excellent. Never a wait at any of the restaurants. Quick service. If you don't like menu options, they are happy to accommodate you in any way. The buffet for breakfast and lunch was great and having it right next to the main pool was very convenient. Highly recommend the beachside dinner. It was very romantic. Loved that you can view all the menus right on the le blanc app.
Le blanc has it all. 3 pools- 1 main pool and 2 quieter pools. One pool has legitimate beds that you can relax on outside. Huge jacuzzi by the main pool. Main pool overlooks the beach and you just have to go down a flight of stairs to be on the beach. Beautiful breeze at all times by the main pool. All pools have bars with quick service for both food and beverages. The main pool has about a 6 foot wide border around it with a few inches of water where they put lounge chairs. It's nice being able to cool down just by putting your feet into the water below your chair. No loud music blasting like at other resorts. Very peaceful. Great gym- good size and they have cold towels as well as several water choices (such as hibiscus water and cucumber water). The spa was the most tranquil atmosphere I've ever experienced. The actual massage was incredible. The rooms at le blanc are fully stocked with bottles of alcohol and a dispenser, soft beverages, beer, snacks, etc. Everything is included with your stay. The beds are incredibly comfortable! Memory foam rugs to step onto on each side of the bed. Each night you'll come back to a bottle of water and a glass on each night table with all the lights dimmed and spa type music playing. If you request that a jacuzzi (it's a huge 2 person tub) be prepared for when you get back to your room at night, it is filled with bubbles and rose petals, with robes and slippers right there ready to put on when you get out of the tub. Pools are heated so never too cold. Staff comes around the pool area offering to put cucumbers and a cool cloth over your eyes. They come around with glasses of the sangria of the day and one of the guys brings a surfboard full of drinks into the pool to offer to those that are in there.
It is generally a quiet place. No loud music blasting at the pools. Some water aerobics, gym classes, cooking classes offered. Minimal night life. We saw a fire show one night (it was awesome), they have karaoke, live violinists, etc, but it is a pretty quite place which we enjoyed.
People warned us that we would probably get sucked into listening to a speech about timeshares. Not one person approached us about this. Resort credits are great. Wish they didn't limit the amount for the spa but oh well, some spa treatment for free is better than none! The place is immaculate. The second you put down an empty glass or plate of food someone is there to pick it up.
Overall we had a wonderful time and cannot wait to go back. We will absolutely be returning. No complaints!! Ranked so highly for a reason! You can't go wrong here unless you're looking for a louder, party like atmosphere.
