October 2012 - What can we say except pure bliss and heaven! We have gone on amazing holidays before but this has to be the best. You need to ensure that you stay in the Casitas sections! Food is Al a Carte and can not be faulted. Al a Carte is typically small in amount but you can have any number of starters, mains & deserts as you want. Check out the banana buttermilk pancakes for breakfast. All restaurants are good but Kampai (oriental) was exceptional as well is the Italien in the Casitas section. Staff can not do enough for you. Each Casitas section has a concierge team and a Sottish guy called Alan was ours and he was such a star and really made our stay great! If you need anything, even a table booking, just ask the Concierge. Ground floors offer swim up patio but this does not really get used unless you like to be away on your own all the time. Upstairs rooms are best I feel personnally as you get a nice veranda with a bed and patio set on it. Rooms spacious, large bed!!! Outside shower. Top branded alcohol at the bars. Rooms kept amazingly clean and evening turn down service is wonderful. Beach and pool areas excellent and so clean. None of the rushing out early to get a sunbed either which is good. Mexico is a tipping culture but they are not offended if you don't but tip where you feel deserved. Good entertainment. Very safe place. The Spa is excellent and the massage wasthe best we have experienced. We plan to return again next year. Basically, well worth every penny...book now! Andrew & Lorraine
