We had an incredible stay at this holiday, very chilled atmosphere and awesome staff and service, Our butlers Victor, Christian and Isaac were outstanding and really looked after us as well as Jarlin looking after us by the pool. The food and drinks were exceptional all the staff deserve huge praise.
We loved our 5 day trip to Zoetry. The resort was small and peaceful but with all the amenities we needed.
- Rooms: All suite hotel, with private balconies. Great space for just the two of us. Huge bathroom, although small shower.
- Pool: only one pool, but big enough for all guests; never an issue getting chairs. Eduardo set up our chairs each morning.
- Spa: AMAZING (although many services were VERY expensive). For body treatments and massage, Patricia was wonderful. As a UVC vacation club member, we also did the hydrotherapy circuit for free, and Yesenia made that so relaxing. It was a surprisingly long session that included massage. Gerbin at the spa reception took care of us with a big smile, and was flexible when we had to change an appointment time.
- Activities: Yoga each morning with Daniel on the pier over the ocean is a must. He has such a calming presence. What a great way to start the day. We also did sushi making that Daniel hosted (Aaron was the fantastic sushi chef), and a wine tasting. There were other activities like cigar rolling and tequila tasting that we didn't do.
- Restaurants: there were two sit down restaurants for dinner. Jorge at Xaak for dinner was our incredible server for three nights at dinner. The menu changes nightly so we ate here throughout the trip. The food was good (not great), and Jorge could not have been any more attentive. He remembered that I have a gluten allergy, and brought me a special GF dessert each night that was never on the menu. Somehow he knew I love chocolate and my desserts were delicious. The food at the other restaurant was delicious and a beautiful presentation. Note that almost all guests are without kids, so the meals are long and leisurely. We opted for room service for breakfast so we could start our day when we wanted, rather than sitting in a restaurant.
- Drink/Food Service at the Pool: this is the one area of the resort that I felt was lacking. There were a lot of servers and they were quick to come, but it took a while to get food and drinks. The pool bar is very close (and in the shade) so it was often easier to get a drink yourself and get out of the sun for a few minutes.
- Beach: like all of Riviera Maya/Cancun, there was a seaweed problem. But the resort did an fantastic job cleaning it up. The sand was really nice. The beach had chairs if you wanted to be there, but it was very windy this time of year, so we stayed by the pool.
