Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 July 2010

I was a little nervous when my husband and I got to the airport and nobody had heard of Amarte (tell a taxi driver it's next to Iberostar or near Maroma), but once we got there my fears went away. We're not big resort people so this was the perfect place for us. The bungalows are spotless and the staff was extremely helpful. To get to the beach you have to ask someone at the front to drive you (they don't mind at all) and in a few minutes you arrive at the most spectacular beach...mostly to yourself! The staff was accommodating, the rooms are clean, the food was great and the beach was breathtaking.

What a wonderful discovery are the Amarte Villas located on Maroma Beach, noted as one of the top 10 best beaches in the world by Conde Nast Traveler, and only 20 miles south from Cancun International airport!
The beautiful architecturally designed villas provide all the modern comforts while capturing the Mayan spirit through the stone and wood work and blending naturally with the tropical flora and fauna of Maroma.
This is all possible thanks to Jose Luis Moreno, the architect, and his wife Sally, originally from Chicago, who run the Maroma Foundation, which is dedicated to sustainable development and bringing art to the Yucatan Peninsula. The Amarte Galleria is part of the premises and exhibits fine arts of Mexican artists.
The pursuit of art also extends to its Pavo Real Restaurant where the theme is ‘cuisine as art’. Music and shows complement the enjoyment of exceptionally prepared gourmet meals.
The staff of the villas is very friendly and accommodates every request. Breakfast, which can be a feast in itself, is served in the villas. During high season lunches can be served at Lolitas where fresh seafood is grilled on the beach. Dinners were an unforgettable family experience. The chef even showed us how to prepare the Mango Ceviche and Ginger Grouper, which were the best we have ever tasted.
After walking on the mile long white powder beach, we were pleasantly surprised that the staff was able to arrange on a short notice a reflexology massage at our villa.
The Amarte experience is unique in its blend of nature and art creating the most unforgetable get-away.

This beautiful hotel is one of the best kept secrets of the Riviera Maya, if you visit the Riviera Maya you have to visit this awesome place, they also have a delicious restaurant call Pavo Real. You won’t regret your stay in this hotel.
