We recently stayed at the Grande Luxxe in June. Renting from Bob and Mary was great. They were extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Renting through them we received platinum service which included free shuttle service from and to the airport.
From the moment we arrived at the resort we were treated like royalty. Everyone at the resort always had a friendly smile on their face and made us feel happy. The resort is gorgeous! The room that we rented was beautiful and spacious.There was enough room to sleep 11 people. We were a family of 6. We were on the 3rd floor which was the highest level. We were just at the canopy level which allowed us to have a great view from the large teak terrace of the many interesting birds flying by. I suggest bringing a pair of binoculars. The terrace has a plunge pool with 2 teak lounge chairs, a table for
4, a couch with coffee table, and two chairs with an end table. We sat outside every morning having our coffee and breakfast.
The resort had an excellent electric golf cart shuttle service. It runs every 15 minutes from the hotels to the pools. The drivers always greeted us with a friendly smile and demeanor. What a pleasure!
The many pools at the resort were fantastic. As a Grande Luxe resident we had access to all the pools on the resort. The grande luxxe pool is fit for royalty. I was asked by the one of the waiters if I wanted to have my sunglasses cleaned. The Grande Mayan and the Mayan Palace pools were so much fun for the kids.
The beach is nice with powdery sand. There are nice piers that jut out into the ocean and are nice to walk out on. The beach is rocky so it is not a swimmable beach. The resort is in the process of trying to fix this by pumping sand over the rocks. The water sports available at the beach were great. We went parasailing, jet skiing, and reef snorkeling directly from the beach.
What a fantastic resort and a fantastic vacation! I
would love to go back!
