Worth the money!
Okay so I've been to a lot of all inclusive but none like this. Wow this place was absolutely incredible. The location is great, its secluded back probably a mile from the main road that goes to playa del Carmen. U enter the resort and drive through the Mayan jungle until we reached the lobby of the Ambassador area. Upon arrival we were given cold towels, a tropical juice and a glass of Champagne ( Veuve Clicquot) to be exact. I was surprised they served such a high end champagne (though its only suppose to be offered for the welcome drinks I was able to snag a few glasses everyday). The resort was perfect. It was quiet, clean, and hada very relaxed ambience. The main pool was massive and the service was great! Our pool host/ server was Alexander. He was the best, we kept the drinks and food coming all day for us and had some really good drink suggestions. He was the real all-star our our vacation! I could go on for days and hours about how good he was. Pool food was always great, we all loved the carne asada nachos, burgers, chicken fingers with curly fries and of course the chips and guac, The rooms we had were 2 Ambassador suites. One had a small plunge pool on the balcony (which we didn't use). The rooms were nice, spacious and had a lot of amenities. The beds were VERY comfortable!! the in room mini bar was stocked with DOS Equios, Tecate, Heineken, Red/White Wine, tequila, sodas, juices, waters and candy bars/ chips, nuts, granola bars, and more candy. also they left chocolate milk in the mini fridge which was great! The showers could easily have fit 5 people in them and room service was pretty quick and the menu was extensive. We also loved that we could order a bucket of beers to the room or at any time a bottle of champagne or orange juice. One morning they arranged a room service mimosa bar for us with different juices! All the restaurants were beyond great. The Mexican, French and Asian fusion were our favorites. We wanted to the tasting menu but ran out of time. U cant go wrong at any of the restaurants. Some have an all la carte breakfast however we enjoyed the Buffet at Azul for breakfast (when we woke up on time). Again u cant go wrong with the food at this resort. The bar scene was out of this world. Like I said this resort was pretty quiet at night, this is Not a party resort, more of a romantic, relaxed resort. Koi bar was a lot of fun, its such a great vibe do it. After 10PM it turns into a club for adults only. The alcohol selection at the resort was great! Top shelf (Grey good, Belvedor, chivas regal, glenlevit, don Julio, havanna club, zacappa 24, jameson, jack, and plenty more). At Koi the bar tenders will make u custom drinks upon request. I asked for a Grey good cucumber martini, and wow it was beyond this world. We went to the Zen pool and area once. It was nice, but we liked the Ambassador side better. The Zen pool was very very nice, very relaxed and quiet. I will admit at In the evening in the Zen area since its literally inside the Mayan Jungle you will NEED BUG SPRAY! Mosquitos are out and hungry. We did a dive with the dive staff at the resort and had a great time. I would recommend that to anyone who is certified or wants to be certified. The beach here isn't the best. Everyone knows Playa has a major sea weed problem, so u can always expect the beaches here to be full of seaweed and be cloudy, it is what it is. The resort workers worked all day trying to groom the beach and keep it clear of the seaweed. Overall this resort was Pure Luxury and I cant wait to go back! I've done Sandals for years which I love but this is a great rival to Sandals!
The service was out of this world!
I wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for giving my wife and I the opportunity to visit your beautiful resort this past weekend! All I can say is, wow! The resort and amenities in itself were incredible, but it was the staff members that sent it over the top. I can’t speak highly enough about the kindness, hospitality, and service we were shown. Our personal concierge, Tona, was welcoming, extremely helpful, and continued to check on us during our stay. Additionally, the pool concierges at Zen pool were fantastic! Fernando, Alfredo, and Oscar in particular took great care to make sure that we were comfortable and enjoying our time on the resort. They were extremely attentive, remembered our food/drink preferences, and called us by name. We were blown away by all the personal touches and attention to detail. Please let Aaron Ortiz know that he and his team made our stay an unforgettable one. It will be my pleasure to send our clients to Grand Velas in the future at my highest recommendation. PS - We had the pleasure to visit all of the main dinner restaurants. The food was a 10/10. Piaf was our personal favorite We will be back as soon as we can!
Beach is not swimmable!
You cannot swim in the ocean: razor sharp rocky bottom, shallow, water is brown. That makes no sense vacationing on the beach. Food is average and everyone had a diarrhea. Very pricey for what you get.
Simply the Best!
Luxurious, genuinely friendly and happy staff, attention to all little details... PERFECT!! simply cannot think of anything that they can improve on! When I arrived, my reaction was "Woowwwww" and think why I did not book for a longer stay!
I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about this resort. From the beautiful buildings, pool, rooms... everything is spectacularly appointed and just gorgeous. This would be enough to warrant a perfect rating but then on top of that, the staff is phenomenal. Everywhere I went I was treated with such hospitality, kindness and respect. When I was boarding the shuttle back to the airport, I was already telling the staff that I would be seeing them in December. I cannot wait to return.
