My wife and I at Zoetry Paraiso in Riviera Maya

My wife and I traveled to Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita, located in Mexico's Riviera Maya.  Zoetry is the upper luxury brand of AM Resorts, which also include Secrets, Dreams, Now, Breathless and Sunscape resorts.  From the time we arrived, the level of service and attention to our needs just blew us away.


As we exited our private airport transfer, the resort staff welcomed and greeted us by name.  This resort only has 100 suites (all with ocean view), so it feels much more relaxed and exclusive than most larger resorts that manage 400 - 600 guest rooms.  The atmosphere was absolutely tranquil.  While there are only 2 main restaurants on site, one casual and one formal, there was never a wait to get seated for dinner.  In addition to the two restaurants, there is a seaside grill and a ceviche bar serving freshly prepared sushi and ceviche.  No matter where we ate, the food always seemed to have so much flavor to it.


Our suite was located on the 1st floor with a large terrace and a plunge pool, shaded by palm trees with a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea.  Unlike a regular resort or hotel room, our suite was truly our home away from home.  Our suite included 3 televisions (one in living room, one in bedroom and one in bathroom).  We spent quite a bit of time relaxing in our suite and ordering room service.  Room Service was phenomenal.  We never waited more than about 25 minutes for the room service staff to deliver a full breakfast or lunch to our suite.  We always enjoyed our meal out on our shaded terrace with a nice breeze coming off the water.  


During our stay, my wife and I renewed our wedding vows.  I also had a chance to meet Alexis Brooks, the on site wedding planner, and chat with him about the various wedding packages offered at the resort.  He was also kind enough to give us a private tour of the resort to view the different wedding locations, as well as the various venues used for wedding rehearsal dinners and wedding group receptions.


All in all, this was by far one of the best resorts I have ever experienced.  Allison and I have found the one resort that we would return to each year, if we have the opportunity.  It has the most welcoming atmosphere of any resort I have experienced.
