Fodor's Review

The main draws at this luxurious resort are striking rooms with winning Mediterranean-Mexican architecture and the spectacular location on perfect Playa la Ropa. Paths meander through lush gardens, passing coconut palms, fountains, and ponds en route to the beach. Rooms are artistically and individually designed with bright but not overpowering textiles and folk art, cream-colored adobe walls, and vaulted ceilings in some units. All rooms have terraces or balconies; suites have private (and chilly) plunge pools. Service is downright deferential, with "beach butlers" delivering everything from sunscreen to fruit skewers to your palapa. For extra wellness, there's also a small Moroccan-themed spa, an octagonal fitness center, and vegan and vegetarian dining options at the resort's restaurants. Pricey though the place is, Viceroy offers numerous Web-only promotions.

Beautiful and Romantic

Spent 5 days here in Dec. 09. Wildly exceeded our expectations. Property was beautifully landscaped; rooms were very swanky, spotlessly clean and so well-cared for by the housekeeping staff. Beach and restaurants were first rate. I had a body treatment, a facial and a massage and they were all really wonderful. My husband used the gym and thought it was well appointed and very clean. Boutique has some cool stuff. The staff were all so warm

and professional. But this hotel is not a bargain! The taxes alone will shock you. All in all, notwithstanding the price tag, it was one of the best vacations we've had. Didn't hurt that the weather was incomparable.....
