Incredible!

I had read countless rave reviews about this hotel and it truly exceeded expectations. We just returned after 10 days from one of the best, most relaxing vacations we've had in a while and we owe it to Blue Diamond. The staff is so nice and accommodating and the property is so beautiful and well maintained, it was easy to relax and worry about nothing. The food was well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. We can't go wait to back!!!

Not Good

Don't know how this hotel earned a 5 star. All buildings are outdoor (no air conditioning). 2 restaurants to eat, that you had to walk a mile too, or wait on one of the staff to come pick you up in golf carts. If you like quiet with nothing to do, you would enjoy this place. There is nothing to do but stay in your room or go sit by the pool. The beach access was okay. We had air conditioning problems in the room, as well as our water was cut off so we could not shower, etc to fix a pipe. Food was very good, but that is the only positive I could say about this place. We left after 1 day.

Wedding & Honeymoon

We were married and stayed at the Blue Diamond just recently. The hotel and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The staff is the most warm, friendly people I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for some relaxation time.

Rent a car as all transpotations are quite expensive and if you want to leave the hotel you will save money (by renting)

Pros and cons

We stayed in the Laguna Suite for our honeymoon Pros: nice property, great food (esp the soups), service staff great, close to Playa del Carmen and Cancun, exclusive, quiet, the grounds are gorgeous Cons: the room was hot (esp the bathroom)-we had to have 2 fans brought in; the property is very spread out- need golf carts or bikes to get to various locations in the property My biggest complaint concerns booking excursions. We booked our trip through United vacations, and my husband pre-paid for a tour to Chichen Itza through Trafictours. The young lady at the front desk saw our paperwork when we checked in and knew this (Adriana). She told us that we had a meeting to schedule that excursion p,us any additional excursions the next day at 1115am. We went to concierge where Omar helped us. In addition, there was a representative from another tour company there-Julio. They all knew we had already paid for one tour. We told them multiple times that we needed to speak with someone from Trafictours. Finally Omar called and said the representative from Trafictours would meet us in 20 minutes. Almost 3 hours later, no one showed up so we had to book tours through Julio, including the Chichen Itza tour. As soon as we return to our room, we got a call from the Trafictours representative who was waiting in hotel lobby the whole time. Apparently, tour guides from outside companies are not allowed inside the property or at the hospitality/concierge area where we were waiting. Omar and Julio knew this but never told us that he was waiting in the lobby. This ultimately took 4 hours out if our day. For me, dishonesty and trying to make money at the guests expense took away from the whole experience. I have traveled the world and knowing that I am protected by the very place I chose to stay is very important. The actions of 3 staff cast a cloud on every service person there.

Great hotel, oneophiles and cocktailians beware, request a bike

Rooms are lovely and housing staff is very good. Our room was always spotless. The food was pretty good. Never been to an all inclusive so I have nothing to compare it to, but I've heard the food is usually terrible. This was good. The service is a bit confused and really slow, but the wait staff is friendly and accommodating. The cocktails are terrible, however. They use awful sugary pre-mixes and not real fruit. Drinks like being injected with diabetes. And although they say the drinks include "premium" alcohol it's really mid-shelf (Bacardi and Absolute, for instance). The wine is also terrible. The selection of wines you can purchase for an additional cost is limited and way over priced, with few good choices. The spa looked amazing, but again the prices are outrageous. A massage costs twice as much as one in Chicago. Request the use of a bike at booking. We were there for a week and never got to use one b/c they were all taken (and the resort was no where near full). While the walk to the beach/pool/restaurants is pleasant it is long and a short bike ride is more fun. Highly recommend patio 3, room 337. Private outdoor bath and a view on the river is really nice and feels very secluded. The beach is rocky at the water's edge, but the amenities and service at the beach and pool make up for it. We walked up and down the beach and this best was one of the finest places on this strip (some of the others looked really used, over crowded, loud, and their beaches filled with garbage and plastic sand bags).

Go to Coba to visit the Mayan ruins. Well worth it and far less crowded than Tulum.
