We stayed at Aventura Spa Palace in early December with another couple. We were very skeptical about the $1500. resort credit, but it worked out perfectly. At that time, there were no restrictions on it, so my husband used it for 2 rounds of golf and I was in the spa almost every day. My favourite treatment was the chocolate wrap, but I had several good massages also.
We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and particularly enjoyed the Italian restaurant, La Trattoria and the Mexican restaurant at Cove Palace, La Hacienda. Mimosas and made-to-order omelettes at breakfast were wonderful.
As others have mentioned, the resort is located on a rocky part of the ocean, so there is no beach directly on the ocean and no beach walks. They have attempted to compensate by building a lagoon of ocean water with sand around it. It is good for swimming, snorkelling and kayaking; it just doesn't have the waves. The pools were great and always plenty of lounge chairs and good bar service.
The rooms were a little disappointing (a little dated) although they were clean and comfortable.
Overall, this resort exceeded our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate to return.
