Well, we returned to Aventura Spa Palace, son to be a Hard Rock Hotel. We had heard all manner of reports of how bad it had become. First, it has not started conversion yet so is still a Palace Resort.
We stayed in a building far to the north which met we were very quiet and had nice long walks to things. We like that. The lagoon has many. More fish in it these days than before so much more fun snorkeling and kayaking. The staff was good but seemed to very tired from the full booked resort over the holidays. I'd say there were about 75% there nowadays not too crowded. Food was good but not Palace great. Checkin was VIP as expected and the vacation planner who setup our reservations(Ofelia) online didactic great job and had us all set. The vacation planner on site(Sebastian) added what we needed and made very good suggestions for what we might add. He was very cordial and more knowledgeable than many we've had in the past. The grounds were well maintained but I might ad that there is some wear and tear showing but suspect that with the redo to Hard Rock starting they might not spend on things that will change. We were shown the pending changes and want to come back and see it then. As Palace Premier VIP members, we are pleased with the resort and what is to come.
For those who have never been to a Palace, you don't know what a god thing you are missing! Come see.
