My husband and I just returned from our honeymoon. We stayed six nights in an infinity pool suite, thanks to Jennifer Carr of Tropical Travelers who help us get set up! She was great to work with for our wedding and our honeymoon. Our room and view was great! The beach was fantastic and the service outstanding. Oscar was our waiter many mornings and lunches at Papitos on the beach. We had 3 options for dinner, which was limiting and they were changing the menu halfway through our stay which also threw us off. No food beats Tex-Mex so we didn't care for the Mexican food but the Asian cuisine and Italian were great. This was a very low-key and relaxing hotel for a honeymoon.
We received a few benefits for our honeymoon package, but weren't fond of the "private" candlelight dinner. There were 3 other couples around us and it was pretty dark and windy. The whole dinner took over 2 hours to be served. The food was just okay for the privare dinner. We did not receive champagne on arrival, nor did we get a decorated suite like our package promised, but overall we enjoyed just being honeymooners.
Luiz with Lomas Travel also set up a deep sea fishing adventure for the two of us which was the most awesome experience! Highly recommend doing this if you have the $$. Our guides were patient and we ended up with a mahi mahi, 2 barracudas, a white marlin, and a sailfish!
We had great weather the first 4 days/nights and only had 2 days of rain, but we relaxed in our room and at the pool cabana bar and played games. The activity coordinators did a great job of getting everyone involved and making sure no one gets bored. Overall, we had an excellent honeymoon and we are ready to make another trip! :)
