Nizuc exceeded our expectations in every way. First, the property is beyond gorgeous. The hotel is situated on a private beach cove which is protected from the waves. The soft white sand beach against the picturesque turquoise waters of the Caribbean was spectacular. There is very good snorkeling right off of the dock on the Nizuc property, and the calm, warm water is the perfect for beginners and experienced snorkelers alike. The rooms are absolutely beautiful, with the most gorgeous stone floors and beautiful wood together. The rooms were quite large with a spacious patio and we had plenty of space. A beautiful tub and most luxurious shower I've ever experienced, along with a nice beach bag to use while at the hotel.
Second, what makes this place really special is the staff. There were too many wonderful experiences to recount here, but many thanks to Ruben, Reina, Xicale, Herman, and all of the wonderful golf cart drivers who we so enjoyed seeing each day. The staff at Nizuc take special care to ensure that guests are beyond comfortable. The level of service is unmatched, from the guys at the beach who help set up chairs and towels, to the fantastic staff at the pool who made sure we were never thirsty, to the staff at all the restaurants who were always so welcoming!
The resort has several restaurants, and we ate at nearly all of them. The food was fantastic and rivals anything you can find at nice restaurants in NY or LA. Food there is not cheap by any means, but the quality is great.
We traveled with our six year old daughter, and we found Nizuc to be a very kid friendly place without feeling like it was Club Med...in the least. The beach is very safe for kids given the lack of waves, and there are sand toys, paddle boards, snorkeling gear, etc that can all be checked out at no extra cost. Most of the restaurants have a kids menu and they even left a miniature robe in our room for our daughter.
And last but definitely not least, the kids club!! While we've traveled quite a bit as a family, we've never taken advantage of a kids club until now. Our daughter decided she wanted to check it out this time, and once she did, we couldn't pull her away! Daphne and Andrea were fantastic. They had so many fun activities, and most importantly, a wonderful repoire with the kids. It was like summer camp at its best. Each time I tried to go pick up our daughter, she would ask for just a little more time there.
I'd highly recommend Nizuc to anyone. You'll be fantastically happy with your decision. :)
