10/10 Exceptional

I normally do not leave reviews but I have to this time. This was one of the most unbelievable places I have ever stayed and i have been lucky to stay in some of the worlds best places from the Burj in Dubai to the Four Seasons in Bali. This had everything. The staff do not know how to say no and the villas are top class. The mix of Jungle and the beach is quite unique and honestly breathtaking. If I was to give them some areas to look to improve - its only 1 year open so they are missing a few things like greeting you by name, the staff do an amazing job cleaning the rooms but they can be slow to come clean the room and their wines are outrageously priced. This place is not cheap to stay so I’m pretty sure most like a good bottle of wine but why would anyone pay 10X the cost of wine. A simple bottle of silver oak is over $500 which would cost $60 in the store. As a result, there were very little bottles being served which was a shame. Not sure of the logic here but it was disappointing. Ended up drinking a few $50 glasses of wine in the evenings. All in all, that is nit picking and the holiday was one if not the best we have been on. Well done to the team in Mexico and to the One & Only

4/10 Fair

Let’s start with the positive… the hotel & location is stunning. The rooms are also very nice & spa it’s great as well. Now let’s get into the negative… they are seriously understaffed. You can only get around the property with the golf carts and there is always a wait of at least 15/20 minutes to pick you up and take you anywhere. It would be nice if they could provide you bikes so you could get around on your own if you want. The food is super overpriced and it needs some serious work. We went to the adult pool the first day and i forgot my spf in the room asked the guy that was there if they had any so i wouldn’t have to waste 30 mins going back to the room but they didn’t have any spf and didn’t know if the store sold it, I asked for some water and after 45 minutes nobody showed up so we left and went to the beach. Service there it’s better but still not up to the standards of a property of this level. You’re very secluded meaning it takes you 30 minutes to get to closest town and the store in the property doesn’t have anything aside of some clothes so definitely pack your essentials before. We had to leave prior to our departure date because our son had an emergency eye surgery but I literally had to call and email them multiple times to process my refund back to my card which took over 15 business days. Which seems unnecessarily long.
