A resort which I have been interested in for about two years now is one of the L.L.'s world's best resorts. It is La Casa Le Canta. Last year I was on the verge of booking it but something came up and we had to choose somewhere else. Seeing it again on L.L. has got me interested again. I tried to see if you were able to either bid or buy it but nothing came up. Does that mean that they do not feature it in their auctions even though they have it as one of their choices in the World's Best? Moderators, if any of you are reading this, is there any likelihood of you featuring this property in your auctions. You obviously regard this property highly if you have it in your top resorts choice, soI would have thought it would have been high up there in choosing the resorts you feature on L.L.? Is it possible to tell us whether or not there is any chance of featuing La Casa Le Canta in the near furure? There are other resorts which I am interested in and using my $500 voucher I kindly got from you, but if La Casa was going to be available then I would just wait until it became available. After all, the best things come to those who wait!!
We are also interested in the same info as stated above.
Most importantly, my question is, how safe is Mexico now? What are the top 4 or 5 places that are extememly safe, on the beach, mostly adult and very nice? Something close to a direct flight from DFW, Tx.
This past Fall, we stayed at Maroma and enjoyed it very much. We were picked up at the airport and taken directly to the hotel. The access to the hotel is very well protected/secure. The resort is relatively small and has a lovely beachfront - staff memberspainstakingly rake the beach each and every day. We stayed in 2 types of accommodations - a Sian Nah Suite and an Oceanview. We spent 3 nights in the Suite (beachfront0which is fabulous - spacious sitting room, nice bedroom, large bath area, private exercise room- both and indoor and outdoor shower (plus a tub), plunge pool (not heated)overlooking the ocean,moderate sizeoutdoor sitting area with a hammock and the a palapa for spa treatments on the roof. Then we moved to the Oceanview room (because Sian Nah was previously booked). Our ocean view room was beachfront and I believe all are ocean front from what the resort advised us. The room and the bathroom were both atad small; however, there was a nice outdoor sitting area with a hammock and the view (again) was fantastic. Our room was in the main building at the top of the stairs. Since our trip we have spokenwith other friends who had stayed at this resort in an Oceanview room - from their description it seems as though their Oceanview room was more spacious - so perhaps there is a variation depending upon in which building you are located???? The staff - from the front desk to the wait staff to the bar tenders to the spa people - was very accomodating. Also, the food was quite good. The resort felt quite secluded and you could take a very long walk on the beach. The snorkeling was adaquate but nothng to write home about - my understanding is that the resort is contemplating locating a few new snorkel sites. All in all a very nice vacation which was a fairly quite trip - travel time-wise(from the Boston area through Atlanta). I do believe that LL list this property at various times. If booking outside of LL, I would strongly suggest looking at the resorts various "deals" - the rack rates are a bit steep - at times Maroma offers incentives for even its Suites. Hope this helps.
Your post asked about a number of things. With regard to Maroma, I forgot to mention that it prohibits childrenof a certain age. I believe that children under 16 are not allowed except during certain periods (summer/fall months??) and then during those Summer/Fall periods, and it only allows children over 12 ( or 12 and over??). During our stay this past October, I do not recall seeing a single child at the resort. Also, forgot to mention that the resort does have 3 pools and an expansive beach area - it never felt crowded at all. The beach service (for lunch and drinks, etc) was quite respectable. The beach area is exceedingly comfortable and offers a variety of beach lounge alternatives - from chairs to loungers to hugh cushions (the size of king beds) with large pillows.
