Fantastic time for renewal


A perfect SPOT ON renewal vacation for me. NO, this is not the FOUR SEASONS, nor a PARTY HEARTY destination, but if you READ what IT IS, and your seeking a wonderful destination filled with fine amenities, wonderful activities… cenote snorkeling, kayaking, beautiful crystal blue rivers leading to the ocean, interesting wildlife present throughout, exploring walks and bike paths through mangrove jungle, lovely pools, impeccable grounds, immaculate rooms, outrageously polite and attentive staff… all in an environment where people of all ages seemed to equally be enjoying themselves, then this is THE place. Amenities I did not use/partake in could bring your time here to a whole new level…. two spas with elaborate service menus, plus a gym. I had enough to do and enjoy that I did not partake in those this visit. They also offer a Temezcal experience I regret was not able to schedule as it was booked solid. It would have been nice if they offered that more than once weekly. If you go and are interested, be sure to book that immediately upon arrival. Cafe Las Isle, main dining for breakfast and lunch offered terrific array of fresh fruits, veggies, assorted salads, breads, pastries, juices… all top notch for the health conscious. Nice array of hot dishes although some were a bit bland surprisingly and quality of meat products are not exactly what I had hoped for. For finer dining, evening meals can be had at several restaurants including Alebrije, fabulous authentic first rate local Mexican cuisine in a colorful, artsy setting. Absolute first rate! Hacienda Grill offered very nice salads and grilled dishes, salads again being the winner… entrees hit or miss. I had shrimp one nite and it was great. “Char grilled” flank steak was sorrily a disappointment… I’m thinking they don’t have access to the quality cuts of meat many of us are accustomed to. But service and other dishes made up for any shortfall. Il Forno was nice for a quick afternoon pizza snack but not very authentic. One simple improvement would be for them to keep the pizza in the ovens a bit longer to darken and crisp the crust. I did NOT try the other two finer dining restaurants so I cannot comment. They have an Asian and an Italian restaurant options They have 2 pools, one family and the other strictly adults. Pool activities and entertainment were great, an ideal mix, just the right music, plus pool bar and snacks. GREAT!
