To begin I have to say that we were blown away by the service from Air Transat. It was much more than we expected for the price we paid. The reservation process was efficient. The check in at YVR went without a hitch. The on board experience was a surprise...we thought we would be asked to pay for everything and that was not the case. The Duty Free procedure was easy. The planes' seating is tight to be sure but we have no complaints for the value offered. The Destination Supervisor, Sophie Theberge, went above and beyond for us and for that we will be eternally grateful.
Now for the Resort...we cannot say enough about this place. It is our first experience with an AI and it ticked off all the boxes. We understand that this property was originally a Club Med and built in the late 60's or early 70's. Apparently being the first or one of the first resorts built in beautiful Hualtalco. From what we could see this ensured the best geographical location with beaches that were safe to swim in and even a reef for snorkeling.
Las Brisas is located on a large piece of property and we walked everywhere but the shuttles provided would preclude a lot of that for folks who weren't into it.
Our bay view room was dated, clean and we loved it. The bathroom had been renovated recently. We were very happy with the housekeeping and the mini bar service that ensured that we always had Coronas, soda and water in our fridge.
The beaches were brilliant and we utilized the palapas (sp) provided on a daily basis...shade was easy to find here...which was important as the thermometer reached 32 - 36 degree centigrade during our stay. The water was refreshing, clean and easy to access.
The food was good at times, OK at others and brilliant once or twice. We have no complaints about that...once again, for what we paid for the trip; it was more than we dared hope for.
This resort is also a destination for people from all over Mexico and we met some great people from Mexico City. Many traveling with families and it was a pleasure to see how loving the families were with each other...older siblings looking out for younger ones...Grandparents being assisted into the water by Grandchildren...so respectful of each other. We made friends on this journey that will last a lifetime which was something we had not even considered when we set out.
The staff is fantastic as has been mentioned here time and again. We ensured that we tipped them on a regular basis as they worked very hard to ensure everyone enjoyed their experience.
A great trip by any standards!
