This resort was fabulous for people who want a romantic getaway, young or elderly. If you like to be wined and dined almost to perfection, this is THE place for you - each meal was beautifully prepared and presented and there was such a varied menu. This was the absolute best food that we have been offered and we have traveled extensively throughout Mexico. You will have a problem not gaining weight. The breakfasts and dinners at Omagios are 'out of this world'. Thanks for the best raspberry pancakes and eggs benny with crab cakes. We had so many fabulous salad, entrees and deserts during our stay.
Try the llth floor Insu Tapas menu one evening. We sat up there and enjoyed the sunset with lovely wines and ordered many, many small tapas. I have to say, every little nibble was good but especially the scallops.
This property is not on the beach. We walked to the gate at the rear of the property, called the desk at ext. 8411 and had them open the motorized gate. To the left is a five minute walk to a public beach access. Once on the beach turn left and walk to the beach club at the sister property. We did this one day but we decided not to stay. I'm afraid that we were being spoiled at the resort and we felt that getting away from our resort wasn't worth the trip considering that all four of us were not a bit impressed with the sister resort.
The rooms at the Residences are absolutely spot on. Large with everything you could possibly need. We had a room with two bedrooms, a washing machine, a fully equipped kitchen. Our friends did not have a tub, although they loved their room. If that is a must, you should know that a few rooms have only showers. The balcony was large and we overlooked the adult pool. Having said that, the adult pool is a small sliver in front of the first floor rooms. There is no large pool for people who wish to do lengths because the main pool is shallow for children.
The only negative was this resort did not have the gorgeous location that a few of the top hotels have. We didn't realize this until we took a back to back trip and our last five days were spent at Villa La Estancia. It was nice to get back to a beach front location even though we only walked a few times on the sand. It was so lovely to look out of the window, through the beautiful large pools and see sea and sand.
However, Marival comes a close second and they sure pampered us. Thanks.
