Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya, Mexico in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Surrounded by 36 acres of lush tropical forests overlooking the azure Caribbean Sea, the Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya, Mexico is a mesmerizing hideaway strewn across the white sands of the Yucatan Peninsula. The sole purpose of this Mexican retreat is to indulge guests with the finest of accommodations and amenities. The collection of one- and two-bedroom bungalows, many with ocean or lagoon views, are concealed along winding paths that neighbor serene waterways. Many appointments, such as the rainforest showers, al fresco stone tubs and alabaster courtyards, are inspired by tropical surroundings. Suites and beachfront casitas contain private pools, while a handful of rooms are located near the spa for those embarking on a holistic holiday.

Mandarin Oriental Riviera Maya, Mexico's lush spa takes its cue from the Mayan healing elements of water, air, fire and earth, all to promote an absolute feeling of being at one with nature. In addition to eight treatment rooms with private showers, you may also request one of two VIP couples suites for a full-day of pampering. The resort also delivers a menu of fabulous restaurants, four in all, with ocean views and outdoor dining plus a selection of regional and international cuisine. Retreat to the stylish rooftop bar, lobby lounge, or poolside watering hole for a refreshing libation. The resort is wonderfully secluded, yet easily accessible to many of the region's glorious archaeological sites including the well-preserved pyramids and sacred ceremonial buildings. The Yucatan Peninsula also has bragging rights to the second largest coral reef in the world - idyllic for underwater exploration.

From the time we arrived to the day we left, we were pampered by the amazng staff at the Blue Diamond. Thanks again to Gustavo for the warm welcome. It was nice to be remembered from our previous visit and it was as if no time had passed. If we needed anything, Gustavo, Araceli, Jose Louis and Roberto were always smiling, friendly and ready to help. We spent most of our time between the pool and the beach, and when we were at the pool, Salvador was always ready with refills and jokes. The food was fantastic! Whether we were at Aguamarina, Ceviche or Ambar, it didn't matter. Jose David, Mariano, Pedro, Dogberto and Hermanio were just a few of the great servers we had the pleasure to deal with. I apologize if I've spelled any of the names incorrectly, this is all from memory. This was our first visit as Circle One members, and it was awesome. Special thanks to Araceli and Hermanio for the amazing dinner at the chefs table! That was an evening we will never forget. Although we've mentioned a few specific staff, everyone from the gardeners to the general manager were welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed our spacious patio jr suite with the private patio and pool, and cant wait to return. Thanks again to everyone that made our trip so wonderful.

This hotel is amazing! Service, hospitality, professionalism is all above average. The rooms are beautiful and it gives you a feeling that you are truly away from your home town, mine being the fast moving NEW YORK. There was a sense of privacy and I felt like I was in the jungle šŸ˜. This is definitely a resort to relax whether it be single or couples. There is plently of entertainment during the day.. cocktail class, ceviche class, or wine tasting.. and at night.. circus show, fire show, etc. The food is great and cooked on the spot and isnt your typical buffet at normal resorts. Salvador, David, and Carlos at the pool bar were amazing and attentive. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends amd even though I dont visit the same places twice.. its pretty hard to stay away from this one.. A+ hotel

We picked a bungalow close to the beach on the cenote but even bungalows farther out all got bikes to ride around the resort. It was quiet, the food excellent, nice workout room. They were generous with water and very attentive. The private butlers were super nice. They are upfront about additional fees, such as getting room service, but if you plan for it, it's not an issue. My only complaint is breakfast took 30-45 minutes, even when there was only one other table. I realize this may sound odd since we're on vacation but we had places to go. They had resort activities like ceviche class, wine tasting and shows suring dinner every other night. We would highly recommend this resort!

Great room that was quiet at night and kept immaculate by the housekeeping team, great service at Cerviche bar from Jose, George, Marco and the rest of the bar staff - all excellent and friendly plus not to forget our beach friends Carlos and Christian who looked after our very need sorting sun beds, umbrellas and towels etc., We enjoyed the Aquamarine restaurant and had great service every day from Sandra at breakfast on the outside terrace of the Cerviche bar, what a place to enjoy breakfast on a Monday morning !!! The bell boys / buggy drivers were all excellent including David and Israel, sorry I have forgotten all of the others but they were all as helpful.
