Gotta agree here. "Starbucks" maybe? Otherwise very nice.

Better coffee is welcome, Maxwellhouse is the only type we could find in the filter pack, no filter necessary.

The welcome baskets do have free samples of a wonderful Batab all natural Mayan SPF 30 sunscreen, a soothing all natural Mayan after sun lotion and some all natural Mayan delicious chocolate shampoo and soap. In addition to the free samples we do offer the same products in a retail size 150 ml squeeze container. We also offer an all natural, eco friendly Mayan insect repellent, (smells good and works very well against the local mosquitoes).

We tried the fresh fruit for a few months and found that a lot of uneducated visitors to not dare to eat the fresh fruit in Mexico, not to mention the logistics and difficulty of keeping it fresh. We did have our best results and comments with the honey pineapples.

Not sure if it's available in Playa yet, but Starbucks has come out with VIA, it's a microground coffee (not instant coffee), that dissolves in hot water, cold water, milk, etc. and tastes exactly like fresh brewed. It comes in little individual packets and in Columbian, Italian Roast and decaf. Might be worth looking into??

Everything looks awesome.
I would be grateful to get any of those items when I checked in to some hotel or condo.
What a nice idea.
I hope it catches on.
Nice !!

You get 3 packets for $3.99 or 12 packets for $9.99. Actually you can make 2 cups of coffee with one packet so it's not a bad deal.
