I just came back a week ago from one of the funnest, most relaxing, and romantic vacation ever. It was perfect in every way from beginning to end. I'm so glad we decided to book Blue Diamond out of all the options in Playa del Carmen.
My husband and I were promptly picked up by the hotel's driver at the airport. The driver was very friendly and knowledgeable, he recommended so many activities and gave us an intro to the city. It was like a mini tour during the 40 minute drive to the hotel. Once we arrived, we were immediately greeted by a front desk staff named Adriana (she's gorgeous by the way :)). As we walked into the lobby my husband and I both said "wow!" at the same time. The hotel was stunning. The best way to describe the hotel's grounds is simple sophistication. Nothing was overly done, it just felt so relaxing staying there. We received very attentive service from all the staffs. Housekeeping cleaned our patio jr. suite twice a day. They paid attention to details such as folding the cords to our phone chargers, laying our toothbrushes on clean towels, and turning shampoos and body washes upside down for easier flow. In the evening they would take off the pillows from the bed, close the curtains, turn on the lights and music in order to make the room comfortable when you return from the beach. I have never seen a staff at a resort put in so much effort to please their guests. We felt like royalty. We never had to wait more than 5 minutes for someone to pick us up in the golf cart, or for someone to take our order whether it be at the bar, by the pool/ beach, or at the restaurants.
Drinks and food were overall really good. I enjoyed their chicken and fish dishes the most, the quality of their steaks was average. I especially enjoyed breakfast and lunch because we were able to take in the beautiful ocean view while dining. The beach was cleaned every morning and throughout the day so you barely see any washed up seaweed. I walked up and down the beach to check out other resorts and they were not as well maintained as Blue Diamond. We also took advantage of their free snorkeling trip, it was so much fun. On our last day, we decided to check out their spa and gym and regretted that we didn't do so earlier. I would highly recommend this resort to any couple looking for a romantic vacation and would definitely return when I get a chance. I also want to mention a few more staff members who made our stay absolutely enjoyable - Omar, Sergio, and Victor. Thank you guys! - Mr. & Mrs. Chen :)
