RIVIERA MAYA, Mexico— We recently returned from a four-day stay at AMResorts’ flagship Zoetry property, Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita, and Travel Agent can say without hesitation that it is one of the finest luxury resorts we’ve ever stayed at in all of Mexico.
We stayed in room Mombasa (all suites have names), a one-bedroom, beach-level, luxury suite with a plunge pool. The resort has just 90 rooms and is located on a very quiet part of the beach between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, so if it's quiet you are looking for, this is the place to be.
The food was absolutely amazing, especially the property’s La Canoa restaurant, an elegant AAA Four Diamond restaurant that features the resort’s French chef's "La Cuisine de los Soles," a delectable fusion of styles using the spices and chilies of several warm weather countries. You would never be able to tell this was an all-inclusive as all restaurants are a la carte and premium liquors are included.
But the best part of this resort, hands down, was the service.
Need an extended checkout? No problem.
Would you like a full bottle of wine delivered to your room? No problem.
And the best part of our treatment there was that no one at the resort knew who we were, so we can honestly say this is how they treat all guests and not just the ones who will be writing about them.
The trip was part of a Continental Airlines Vacations (managed by MLT Vacations) promotion of its new Select Escapes packages. Select Escapes is a custom, user-friendly luxury package in which clients can put together their own luxury getaway to Mexico, choosing everything from resorts to excursions with the click of a mouse.
