From the time we arrived to the moment we left, my girlfriend and I were continuously impressed with every amazing detail of this resort. The reviews and the pictures only begin to describe the perfection of this place. The grand yet simple elegance of the open-air lobby will immediately transport you to a serene far away world. Beyond you can call for a golf cart to take you around, use bicycles (we preferred to request for the length of our stay), or walk the winding paths though the resort covered by a shaded jungle canopy and beautiful landscaping. I'd recommend taking the time to check out every square inch of the resort as well as trying most everyhing on the menus - you will not be disappointed. Some of the little things that took our breath away ... the beauty of the spacious rooms (especially the open his/hers rainfall showers), the infinity pools, the modern and clean architecture/decor of the buildings and views throughout, the pristine beach, the live entertainment (especially the Mayan dance and reggae band), the interesting and different patio gardens, the meandering lagoon (Coco the crocodile can be seen around 4-5 near the Ambar restaurant) which runs the length of the property are just a few. Definitely a couples resort, this place afforded you privacy and 5-star attention at the same time. The staff was extremely professional and courteous, going to every length to make our stay unparalleled. After spending almost a week there, we felt like family and already miss them. Special thanks go to the two Cesars for attentively making sure our top-shelf drinks were always filled on the beach, to Roman the soft-spoken dinner waiter who always made us smile, to Jesus for making sure the umbrellas always provided us shade during breakfast, to Jose the kind and knowledgeable concierge, and to Omar, Fernando, and Prisciliano whose sincere attention was ever present and a wonderful compliment to the amazing food they always brought to us. It is evident the entire staff of this resort takes pride in their work and loves being there, and as a result, so did we! Without question, one of if not the best place I've ever stayed - the Blue Diamond was absolutely perfecto.
