You need to visit the GBP Sian Ka'an. My husband and I have been traveling throughout Mexico for the past 27 years and our December vacation there exceeded all expectations. We stayed in one of the penthouse suites of the condo-hotel and everything was fabulous - extremely roomy, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. There are no elevators on site, which we originally thought would be a negative but actually it proved to be a positive for us as we needed the exercise.
The food at all of the Sian Ka'an restaurants including the buffet is gourmet. The presentation is divine, the selection is awesome and the food is unbelievably tasty. The array of desserts is out of this world.
The best part about the Sian Ka'an is that it is rather small in size but definitely offers fringes that you won't find at comparable resorts. First of all, there is no problem walking to any place within the resort. The hotel personnel and wait staff are superlative - they are unusually friendly, accommodating and focused on pleasing. All in all, they make you feel very special. Oscar and Luis and the remaining Activities Team members are unquestionably the very best. They have an indescribable but distinguishable charm about each of them that makes one feel like part of the activities family. I'm sending a zillion kudos their way!
When you stay at the Sian Ka'an, you have extended privileges to the other three GBP related hotels. The hotels are not within walking distance so you travel by tram or shuttle. I read some negative comments about the availability of these trams but I can tell you from direct experience that they run continually and are always available within just a few minutes. After preliminary exploration of the related hotels, I found that the very best property was the Sian Ka'an in all respects. It offers a beautiful and intimate environment, excellent lodging, delectable food, outstanding service and an A Team to embrance you.
