Le Blanc Spa Resort
Travel Blogs from Cancun
A week of indulgence! An all inclusive, adults only, meals included, mini bar re supplied daily, type of resort. This was the week where we all regrouped, relaxed,indulged and got ready for the next chapter of travel. And what a resort we selected. There were four restaurants to choose from: French, Italian, Japanese and International. And we ate …
... resorts on the main strip. It was crowded and noisy from a nearby Bungy tower whose tannoy echoed across the beach, but the sand was beautifully white and the sea refreshing and azure blue.
We headed out that evening to a restaurant that turned out to have moved to a different location by the side of the main road. We shared some tacos, which are kind of floppy in Mexico and don’t come with any ...
... of the other team hits on me in the middle of the game, in front of his team, and in front of everyone watching. Disgusting and so embarrassing! Ew, gives me the shivers thinking about it. Basically, in basketball you have to give the ball to the ref before you can inbound it to resume play, but their coach was holding the ball while I was waiting for it, but he wasn't giving it to the ref... he was creepily staring at me. He held up the game for a good ...
... basketball team of Quintana Roo, in the play off finals. I have been to a couple of NBA games in London, and was lucky enough to go to both male and female Olympic finals... but honestly, nothing compares to the atmosphere provided by the Mexicans. The game was tense at 77-77 with 1 minute to go, but after some steals and good plays, Los Pioneros finished on top and oh my god, it was incredible. I had goose-bumps and the stadium isn't even a ...

Even the referee told me how **** I was before, something like "oh so you've been practising, now you can play Mexican style." Ah so happy, even writing this now makes me smile! The whole team has improved so much, each player ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun
First day, very impressed with the check-in, individual check-in desks vs. long lines for the counter. Cold towels to cool you off after the trip from the airport. Cool drink while the information of your stay is entered into the system. The first sign of problems occurred when our keys did not work, had the housekeeper open the door. We were very impressed with the room, but were told not unpack until the keys were working. After two hours, the staff recommend that we may consider moving, but when they showed me the room I was to moved to, I said, no way. The suite they showed me was incomplete with missing walls and bathroom door. Finally, someone with key knowledge suggested that the keys be reprogrammed. That worked. Construction was everywhere, paint fumes, loud banging, elevators stopping half way up, etc. Our room was not as bad as others. Some had to take the elevator to the lobby to use the restroom. Others had water leaks coming through the ceiling light fixtures, others had no furniture. The service was the only reason we stayed the week. They also have to consider acquiring knives that cut meat since they're serving beef and chicken dishes. Met someone who decided to use the jacuzzi in his 7th floor room one afternoon, only to discover a pair of eyes staring at his through the window, window washer. Everyone at poolside had a story to tell. I took the trip to the Moon Palace for their vacation package sells pitch and told them that they should have a representative from Palace at the hotel to listen to the complaints, but that did not happen. We'll go back to Cancun, but I think carefully before I make reservations at any Palace hotel.
We were also moved from the Aventura Spa Palace to Le Blanc. We enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and the fact that it is Adults Only. We wanted a vacation to de-stress and it was certainly the answer. We spent a day at Moon Palace and quickly realized that we liked the smaller and quieter atmosphere of Le Blanc.
What an Upgrade!
This is by far the best hotel my wife and I have ever been to. It was our honeymoon and we were supposed to stay at the Moon Palace. We asked to be moved to Le Blanc it was adults only and the room smelled like mildew, the Moon said no problem. The food was great and the drinks were all top shelf (Johnny Walker Black Whiskey and Absolut Vodka) and we had a jacuzzi in our room with an ocean view. The hotel was under construction yet, but that was ok. We wouldn't have been able to stay there otherwise. It will be a super elite in Cancun for a long time. Think about paying about $850 USD per night once it is all done. The pools there and the help were amazing.
My husband and I stayed at the Le Blanc for our honeymoon the first week of August. We had originally booked the Adventura, but after calling post-hurricane, I found out it was closed until October. I asked to be moved to Cozumel as our original intent was to avoid Cancun and I was told we could transfer to the Cozumel Palace. A day or two later, I called to confirm the reservation and they told me they did not have it and that the hotel was full, but we could transfer to the newly opened Le Blanc Spa. I agreed, despite the lack of information or photographs. I was skeptical and pretty nervous.
I realize this is a new place and that there is some growing pains but I think their concept is partially wrong. They are going for the rich crowd that wants to lay around in a coma....there is minimal fun. It is a beautiful hotel and has rooms with an outstanding ocean view. The staff is very friendly, the food is decent(24hr room service!!!) The small beach has some great waves and is very clean. There are 3 1/2 pools with no atmosphere, the music is all non descript caca. I'm not saying I want it loud or a 24hr party, but a little energy or fun would have been great. I think they're trying to say that people with money don't like to have fun! I would only recomend this hotel(not resort) to those that want to get away from it all(and still be in the heart of Cancun)
Le Blanc, it's got a ways to go
this place is definitely far from being complete. throughout our entire stay there was constant construction, painting, and electricity outages (yes, this means no A/C). the service staff was excellent, but the staff at the front desks left something to be desired; to get anyhing accomplished you're certain to have to raise a fuss. the pool bar wasn't open, the third and only other large pool wasn't open (which faces a stinky lagoon and the hotel strip traffic). maybe this place will be five stars someday, but it's not now, so it shouldn't be listed as such. if palace resorts tries to move you there, you may want to think twice. the beach was nice but small and the food was pretty good.
Le Blanc is not habitable yet
This place will be great when it opens, but it UNDER CONSTUCTION! I did not pay $ for a 4 star resort to have to listen to construction at the pool, in the morning, not have a toilet seat, not have furntiture in my room, have the AC go out 2 NIGHTS IN A ROW, not have enough chairs at the pool because only one of the big pools were open.
Although this place will be phat when completed I felt cheated of a relaxing and completed hotel because of the numerous problems. Wait until it is finished to visit.
We just got back from Le Blanc in Cancun after initially booking a trip to Adventura Spa which hurricane Emily damaged....we we're first told that they are going to transfer us to Cozumel but the night before we left they changed us to Le Blanc. This hotel was not ready to be opened as we not only lost power a few nights and running water but we had to listen to constant construction and banging! The decor of the lobby and rooms are beautifully decorated in a very retro modern style. The decor of the restraunts are also very appealing but the food is something to be desired. Unfortunately for us, I became very sick with an intestinal bacterial infection and was administered anti-biotics by the hotel staffed Doctor.....the worst part of this experience was that I only ate/drank at the hotel and never left the resort which is suppose to be a safe all inclusive with filtered water and highly monitored kitchens...this obviously was not the case because as we spoke w/ other hotel guests they too had been sick with the same symptons and we began to notice the hotel Doctor making more and more frequent trips in the elevators. I was very dissappointed with the hotels communications Department Assistant Manager Alma who was not only very rude but claimed that my situation was not the hotels responsibility and the $90 in antibiotics is not negotiable. After over stepping her I did resolve part of the issue and recovered half of the money. For a so called 5 diamond hotel it's not worth 5 cubic zercona's!
I just got back from a long weekend at Le Blanc and had a wonderful time. The service is excellent, the staff is very friendly and the resort is beautiful.
We just got home from a week of experiences, both good and bad. I could write a book about our stay in Cancun. We were booked at the Moon Palace after the ASP was devastated by the hurricane. That was a less than desirable stay for two nights. We had to move. We were told we were going to the Le Blanc, a newly renovated resort on the North end of Cancun. It was not opened yet; but, we wound up staying there for four days. It was the utmost as far as lavishness goes in my opinion. The pools had just been filled the day we arrived and they were cold only the first day. Only four of the pools were open and two others are still under construction. The restaurants and bars are open and running. The store level and the spa level was not completed as yet. But after our experience at the Moon we were ever so happy. We did go visit the Sun, Cancun and the Beach in addition while on shopping trips and saw the the Cancun did not have all the A/C worked on, the Sun was in a bad shape compared to our last two stays there in the past couple of years and the Beach left a lot to be desired too. The Le Blanc is still under construction but habitable. All the amenities are there and the service and food were very good. The beach is small; but, it is only big
