I just returned from five days at Blue Diamond. I was there for rest and relaxation and to quietly celebrate my 48th birthday.
My room (in Patio 4 section) was HUGE and very well appointed. Cable TV was intermittent, but I didn't make a complaint, as I very rarely watched television while at the resort.
Initially, I was unprepared for the long distances between the lobby, fitness center, restaurants, beach/pool and my room. Within the first day, however, I looked at the long, peaceful walks as great exercise. If I preferred not to walk, a golf cart with driver was never far away.
I had ants in my bathroom, and unfortunately, that was never addressed during my stay.
I spent most of my time at the pool area. It's a fairly small pool and very shallow. The beach was beautiful and very well-kept.
Two standouts for me were Laura, the hostess at Ambar Restaurant, and David, a bellman/golf cart escort. They both delivered warm, gracious service.
Meals were generally very good and contained enough choices that I didn't have many repeats, especially at dinner. The tuna sashimi at Aquamarine restaurant is stellar.
I've vacationed in the Maya Riviera many times and Blue Diamond is among my favorite resorts. I will definitely consider a return visit.
