We stayed at the Blue Diamond Riviera for six nights in June and thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon! The resort was absolutely beautiful, from the moment we drove through the Jurassic Park like doors, we were greeted with genuine kindness and hospitality by all the staff.
The resort itself is a stunner, the rooms are all spacious and have a very luxurious design to them, even within the most common rooms. If you're trying to decide which room, I would recommend staying in the cenote rooms, the upgrades will put you closer to the pool towards the end of the resort closest to the ocean but quality of the rooms will remain the same - all gorgeous! Additionally you have access to bicycles (upon request) and escorted rides on golf carts to take you around the resort.
The food was beyond our expectations - you'll find no buffet here! They have menus that change daily, offering a large variety of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are there places to eat on resort - Ceviche Cha Cha Cha, Aquamarina, and Ambar. The Ambar restaurant is the only one with a dress code and is a nice choice for dinner on a fancy dress up night! For regular dinner I would recommend Aquamarina, the menu is great here and restaurant is on the ocean and near the pools. Ceviche is open for the afternoon and has great snacks/lunch choices that is more basic. I recommend the cheese sticks and wings were awesome!
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at this resort, and although quiet during our stay, it was a lovely and romantic getaway. We rented a car and were able to do day trips to Cozumel, Tulum, and Playa del Carmen. (I would highly recommend Tulum - Mayan ruins!)
Coming back to Blue Diamond after our outings was wonderful, the room was always air conditioned and cleaned thoroughly everyday.
A special thank you to Javier for his highly thoughtful service at the pool bar, always surprising guests with funny coconut animal drinks and served with a big smile! Please be kind and tip well, it's amazing how the servers, bartenders, and staff were able to work under the heat with all black on all day, dealing with the different needs of guests.
