Let me begin this review by explaining that my hubs and I stayed at NVR for 4 nights the first half of our honeymoon, before heading back north for 4 nights at a small all-inclusive luxury hotel near Cancun.
Let me add that I am a creature of comfort, and expected to "need" the luxury resort-ending to our honeymoon. Well, that was before we stayed at NVR.
We LOVED our stay at NVR. When we are asked which of the two hotels we would go back to, we answer NVR - no questions asked.
After a long day of travel, we felt immediately at peace. The "hotel grounds" are secluded and the rooms tucked away in the trees.
The staff is friendly, accomodating, and allows you your privacy. Available if you need them, but otherwise they leave you to yourself. Fabulous people.
The location is simply breathtaking. There is nothing else to say. Its incredible.
The beach is sparkling clean, the water is clear, the sand is fine and soft, there is no trash, there are plently of hotel-provided lounge chaises and umbrellas.
Our room (Pasion Marina) was private, kept clean, and just simple enough but not bare-bones (we hardly spent time in there, anyway!). Opening our doors at night to fall asleep to the sound of the waves 20 yards from your balconey was just priceless. The balconey of our room had an amazing breeze and although the view was a little obstructed by palm trees and foilage, we could still get a partial glimpse of the turquoise sea.
The food at Casa Banana was fresh and very good. The breakfast is light - coffee, breads, and fresh fruit. We had dinner there one night - a little pricey, but worth it. We ate our lunches at La Zebra (just next door - walked there on the beach) and our other dinners at the small restaurants up and down the street. All the food in Tulum is so good - especially the seafood! We literally watched watermen bring their haul in from the boats on the beach to the restaurants.
Its hard to find anything to say that we didn't like! I suppose the one (and only!) thing I WAS ready to leave was the water in the shower. I didn't know that the hotel used salt water showers. Even then, it was only an issue because I have rough, curly hair, and the salt water showers just weren't cutting it! My new husband learned very quickly what my natural hair looks like!
I keep asking my husband when we can return. Thank you so much to everyone there. You gave us the perfect place to begin an unforgettable honeymoon. I can't wait to come back! It was such an unique and different experience for us; we weren't sure what exactly we were getting into, but I'm SO glad we chose to stay at NVR for the first half of our honeymoon.
