Leblanc vs Live Aqua price

I am in the process of booking a trip for February and the 2 resorts I am looking at are Leblanc and Live Aqua. The Leblanc is about a 1000 dollars more per person and at Live Aqua I would be staying in the Aqua club suite. Is Leblanc worth the cost difference ?

No, Le Blanc is very nice but for that extra $1000 you could pamper yourself in Aquas spa all week.

We have stayed twice at Aqua (once in a suite and once in an oceanfront room) and 4x at LeBlanc.

LeBlanc wins for food (quality and variety), service, wine selection, entertainment, attention to detail and top shelf alcohol.

Beach is beautiful at both.

Aqua wins for pools, cabanas, rooms.

I would not pay 1000 more per person for LeBlanc but nor would I expect LeBlanc standards and quality as it is simply a better resort than Aqua IMO and IME.

I would book Aqua and go to the spa often and also go off property for a dinner or two.

Thank you for the advice. We usually venture out for dinner once or twice. Any place special you like for dinner Caviargal ?

We enjoy LaMadonna at La Isla shopping center for the ambiance and eclectic menu. We book a table in the upper balcony.

We also enjoy Cenacolo for Italian.

Puerto Madero or Harry's if you're looking for a special meal. I'm sure you'll get 100 more opinions as to where you should go.

Try LaHabichuela downtown. Fantastic. Haven't tried the new one in the hotel zone, but looks gorgeous. Peter's is very nice as well, a European style place, low key and nice.
