I have seen

I have seen many pictures & tv shows of resorts & beaches, but to have actually been here, walk through the soft sand & see the sights with my own eyes, these pics do not give this place justice. We had a GREAT time, and I know that all who go there after us will to. Have fun & relax. Let your worries fade away. You can wear swim suits, men with flip flops & t-shirt, women with cover up & flip flops, to breakfest & lunch. At dinner, men-slacks, collard shirt, closed toe shoes, women-dresses, nice sandels or dress shoes. They do have WI-FI, but they charge for it, I think it's $28US for 3 days per phone. We did not do this. Put down the phone & ENJOY!

Yes it is amazing. We loved it. Special place. Enjoy your time there & walk out to the island! Beware of the white birds, they will dive bomb you, they will not hit you, but get about 2 feet from the top of your head. Beautiful Resort!! Miss that sand!!

This place was wonderful we were in a presidential suite it was huge and new and had a great view of the water from the bed. 1121. The room had a living dining kitchen 2 bathrooms 2 tvs 2 balconies with beds. Huge tub. Top shelf full bottles of whatever liquor we wanted( exotic club benefit). Several times we c back from beAch and had a bath waiting for us. Told them we liked come zero and it appeared in the fridge even those it was not to be found elsewhere on resort. The beach was incredible and I go to riviera maya all the time. Got beach beds ever day around 9. Didn't do much but relax on beach and drink/. Service was great every few minutes they came with drinks snacks Popsicles cold towels chair massages.
Only negatives were Luis with lomas travel who was very rude and unhelpful about the mixup with transfers if you want a great small company with private for less than shared transfers pm me
The food was not as good as I expected because they say it is gourmet but it was fine and the beach service and rooms made up for it. Royal hideaway food much better if that is important
As far as I could tell exotic benefits mean lower price better upgrades bottles of liquor in room and discounts at spa otherwise the same

Thanks for the pictures! Do you have a picture of the island?

I really think we would enjoy EDM but I haven't sold my husband on it yet. I guess it doesn't help that we already have our 2nd Mexico trip for this year booked....he says it's too early to discuss next year. In my world it's never too early!
