Fodor's Review

Having been remodeled from a Gran Melia to a Paradisus in November 2012, this enormous beachfront hotel resembles a modern Mayan temple, complete with atriums topped by pyramid-shaped skylights. The main lobby is a sight to behold, as there's lush green vegetation everywhere. At the center is a sushi bar–café that gives the sense of being in an outdoor garden, with its wooden floors, koi ponds, central fountain, and numerous plants. Spacious rooms are decorated in neutral

tones with hints of orange and have marble floors, balconies, and either lagoon or ocean views. Guests who want a more private stay can always upgrade to the Royal Service sector of the hotel, which is more expensive but has a secluded courtyard with a pool, two Jacuzzis, and nearly 40 beds with palapa roofs, as well as all-inclusive amenities and perks like complimentary Internet, breakfast, tea time, and cocktail hours. Golfers will enjoy the 9-hole course, and foodies will appreciate the new white-glove restaurant Tempo, by Spanish culinary god Martin Berasategui.
