Blue Diamond Riviera Maya Review

Blending Mayan and Asian traditions, this all-inclusive resort is on the south end of Maroma Beach, midway between Punta Bete and Punta Maroma. Centering the property is a 25,000-square-foot spa where you can get massages and body wraps made with chocolate, seaweed, and coffee. Winding paths extend over the mangroves, leading to bungalow suites, all of which rise above the lush vegetation. Also available are five beach casitas and more affordable patio rooms built around sculpture gardens. All rooms have Asian influences like rice-paper walls, onyx sinks, and rainforest showers. A private dock marks the launching point for diving expeditions. Since this property was originally designed (and recently sold) by Mandarin Oriental, it doesn't have a typical all-inclusive feel often associated with large resorts in this area.
