I just returned from a long weekend at the Blue Diamond and cannot wait to return. A friend and I traveled for a girls weekend and loved the resort. We stayed in a Palafitos Sun Deck room which is the upper level with a private sun deck overlooking a lagoon. It is the closest room type to the beach without actually having a beachfront room. The room is huge, comfortable, and has a well-stocked minibar.
The beach is beautiful. Not sure about previous rock complaints--there were only a few and quite easy to step over. Kayaks are free and fun to use. Plenty of beach chairs are available and the staff will move them for you to any spot you like! Plus, beach chairs and towels come with pillows by the beach and a really nice terry cloth-covered cushion by the pool. Beach service is excellent, and Cesar is your man on the beach!
Three restaurants plus a pool/beach-side menu are great and there are plenty of choices. Breakfast and pool snacks are especially good, and there is an extensive drink menu.
The service is attentive without being overbearing and little touches like concierges and turn-down service are nice (your room is re-stocked in the morning as well as at turn-down).
The resort is all-inclusive, and all adult. This was great for my friend and me, because aside from the massages we got (highly recommended as they are awesome and the spa is beautiful), all was prepaid. Plus, no kids means a very relaxing vacation. I would avoid the car service arranged through the hotel site--we had a bad experience. Choose something else.
I can't wait to go back!
