We have gone here twice and we never repeat vacation locations! The Grand Sunset Princess in playa del carmen is simply remarkable. There are so many choices for dining that you never get bored, the place is gigantic and you could easily stay here for a week and never see the same thing twice (except for maybe the breakfast buffet). There is a sports bar/sports center that has free air hockey and pool etc and plays all US sports games all the time, its fantastic, and all the beer, drinks and pub style apps are all inclusive. We stayed in the platinum rooms the first time which were great rooms with jacuzzi's and had a private pool for platinum guests with upgraded liquor and daybeds by the pool; this area allowed children so it could get a bit loud at times. The next time we stayed in the Laguna suite which is like an entire house with a jacuzzi in the bedroom and a gigantic walk in shower lined with water rocks and a rain shower, amazing. The laguna suite came with its own pool for laguna rooms as well and this pool area was stunning, absolutely stunning. Waiters that came to your daybed to take your order, or would come to the pool to order or bring you drinks, private daybeds over the water surrounded by plants, etc so you felt as though you were in your own private getaway.
The food was fantastic and our favorite place was the hibachi style restaurant. The fondue restaurant was great and the steak, italian and french restaurants were all fantastic as well. Hard to compare to other all inclusives where there may only be a couple restaurants which are both bland. The drinks are usually pretty typical at all-inclusives, but like I mentioned, the platinum and laguna have upgraded liquor and for all room types they make mojitos with fresh muddled mint every time - a great extra that we dont always find at other places.
There were frequent shows in the open areas of the resort as well as movies in the indoor function rooms. We didnt get a spa service but we used the spa in terms of the spa pool, hot and cold springs, etc and it was very refreshing and a different experience. Hot jacuzzi's and cold plunges, small waterfalls like back massagers, juices, drinks, loungers etc etc - great experience.
The beach is to die for as well. If you stay in the platinum or laguna rooms then there is a private section of the beach that is roped off and there is a waiter service in this area so you dont even have to get up and wait in line for your drinks or food. Unreal.
The service at this place is exquisite. The luxurious accommodations are far beyond what we paid for or imagined. Im sure in a much higher price point there are equal or nicer places, but in this price range, this could not be beat - and we've stayed in several all-inclusive resorts in Mexico.
