There are just too many good things to say about this new resort. So I am going to make it as short and sweet as possible. First of all, splurge and get the ocean front rooms. They are right on the beach. We are talking 20 steps from the deck of our room and you are swimming in the ocean. And we had our own pool. Our bathroom was gorgeous. We had a bath tub that looked something from the Roman times. Shower was incredible. The room was incredible. The grounds are amazing. The margaritas are the bomb. You have to go to the tequila bar on margarita night and try the interesting margaritas of the day. I had a mint and coconut margarita. Best margarita I have ever had. They also had a mariachi band who were excellent. I played their golf course, "El Chamaleon". It was a great course and it was in excellent shape. I would have to say that the spa is probably the best spa I have ever been to. That is all I can say about the spa. If I keep talking about the spa, I would have to write a novel. I cant say enough about how great the staff was. From the concierge, to the waiters, to the gardeners. Everybody treated you like you were a king. Our butler was awesome. He gave us great restaurant advice. He would bring us drinks while we sat on our deck. He even surpised us one night after dinner with a bubble bath waiting for us. Just for fun or because you dont want to walk or take a cart to your room or to the main area of the resort, you have to hop on the shuttle boats that take you on the cenote through out the resort and to your room. On our way back to our room one day, we saw a baby crocodile and we saw these diving ducks that were incredible. I loved this place. Here is what I did not like: 1. The food was mediocre. (Excluding breakfast. Breakfast was amazing) 2. The shuttle service was terrible. We would wait by our room sometimes for 15 minutes before a shuttle would pick us up to take us to the main part of the hotel. The walk is not bad. But it takes about 15 minutes. They really need to work on that. It was annoying. All and all, I highly recommend this place. But if someone had a gun to my head and made me choose between Rosewood Las Ventanas and Rosewood Mayakoba, I would have to choose Las Ventanas.
