A couple of friends of ours won a raffle for a week in the Grand Luxxe and invited us along to stay in their Master Suite. The room comes equipped with:
-2 full bathrooms
-1 Powder Room
-Good sized kitchen complete with stove and dishes
-Large living/dining room
-Balcony that runs the entire length of the suite, big enough to hold another dining room table, couch and a plunge pool
-the aformentioned plunge pool
-A 2nd(!), smaller living room with it's own little kitchen and separate balcony.
...Yeah, this is the nicest play I'll ever stay in.
The staff was *extremely* friendly and helpful. The pools were quiet and the food on-site was excellent. The gym was immaculate and mostly empty. Waiting for the shuttles to take you to various locations got annoying on occasion and construction was less than ideal, but hardly a burden. Great spa and my wife and friend very much enjoyed the lazy river over at the Mayan.
The only real complaint I have was the time share presentation. The "90 minutes" was actually about 5 hours. After saying no (over and over gain), we were then sent off to "get our discounts", which actually mean being sent for another group, called Grand Paradise Club. If you thought the Grand Luxxe salesman were annoying, wait to you hear these guys. After saying no dozens of times, we walked away and were literally followed down the hall while the guy was shouting out prices ("what about $1500....$1100!!!), desperate for a sale. Grand Paradise Club ranked among sounded were the slimiest snake oil salesman I've ever talked to. If you buy into it, I have some magic beans to sell you... That hiccup aside, we collected our 10% off and 1000 peso credit off our bill (I'm not sure it was worth it).
Simply put, the Grand Luxxe, even with construction and sleazy timeshare salesman, is the nicest place I will ever stay.
I miss you Grand Luxxe :(
