We returned to Villa Rolandi taking advantage of their attractive Romance Getaway Package that was kindly extended to a 7-day stay. It included roundtrip transportation from Cancun airport by taxi and then yacht, American breakfast, 3-course dinner and WiFi and was very reasonably priced ($320/night including tax).
In summary, we were happy all around with the expeditious transfer, beautiful location, peaceful beach with many shady palm trees, plenty of towels and comfortable chairs, friendly and attentive staff throughout and, of course, the fantastic Mediterranean-Swiss food. We particularly enjoyed being able to swim in the gulf every day (not typically possible across the way along the Cancun beaches).
After returning to the shore one day, I was stung by a sting ray. It was extremely painful and scary, but I was able to get immediate help from the staff and expert treatment by a paramedic on site. I was completely back to normal the next day and back swimming again in the beautiful sea. Although 7 days later aback home I had a few anxious days with a swollen/painful foot which fortunately resolved itself.
We were so pleased with our stay that we wanted to book our next Spring vacation. We discovered that, unfortunately, Villa Rolandi has been sold to AMResorts and will be converted into a Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resort. One can only hope that the resort will keep much of its current characteristics. Perhaps an upside to (hopefully) new investment will be an upgrade to the fitness room, which could be described at best as “rudimentary”. Early during our stay the treadmill sounded like an out-of-tune jet engine, the weights fell off of the bars due to lack of tools to secure, the elipticals were from a previous era and the sole fitness ball was as deflated as I was at the overall state of the room.
As mentioned above, we were looking forward to a return trip to Villa Rolandi next year, however, I suspect that with an anticipated more than doubling of prices this may have been our last visit to this gem!
