My wife and her best friend had gone to this place in February 2011 and they wanted to go back. This time the best friends sister and myself came along as the wife and I celebrated an anniversary. From the moment we arrived, they congratulated us on our anniversary and repeat business, we were surprised and appreciated the upgrade to an oceanview room in Building 74 top floor, overlooking the tranquility pool. But it got better, out butler brought champagne before dinner, and when we came back the first night, they had laid rose petals in the room and drawn a bubble bath for us. All of this was not requested, but made for an amazing start to the experience. I will not ramble about the amenties and food, they were all top notch, I did not have a bad meal. Toni's Surf and Turf was my favorite, the Italian was amazing and the Japanese Habachi was very good as well. Be sure to book your dinners upon arrival as the slots fill up fast. The staff was amazing and friendly in every corner of the property. I was surprised at how many of the staff remembered my wife from the previous year. Also for the divers reading this, the Dressel Drivers staff is top notch. I did my pool check and then dove three times during my stay. They did an awesome job and the dives were all different and wonderful. Next trip I want to go to the Cozumel trip for the day. Also, don't be afraid to take a taxi to Playa Del Carmen. It is $25 each way for a taxi, or $5 per person for the bus on a schedule, taxi is much better. Bottom line, amazing experience, didn't stay long enough and can't wait to go again. Many many thanks to the staff of the Grand...until next time....
