My wife surprised me with a special Christmas/Birthday/Anniversary gift this year with a trip for two to the Zoetry Parasio de la Bonita Riviera Maya Spa and Wellness Resort in Puerto Morelos, Mexico at the end of January. She chose this wonderful place after searching through many resorts in and near Cancun. What attracted her to this one was its modest size, healthy food, spa, pools and believe it or not, lack of night life so we would be more likely to rest and enjoy each others company with long dinners, drinks, and walks on the beach. She hit the ball out of the park! It was just what both of us needed and well worth the effort.

Prior to the trip we had spent some time sifting through the reviews on trip advisor. The majority of the reviews are favorable and rightly so. The place was beautifully cared for. The amenities were many. Our favorite was the hot salt water pool, sauna, and 4 poster beds on the beach. But what really makes the facility are the many wonderful staff members that work to make you comfortable. Whether your dining in one of the fine restaurants, having breakfast in your room, or sushi on the beach, the staff makes you feel like royalty. We never felt unsafe at any time including our trip to the Tulum Mayan Ruins.
We had a terrific time with our bartender friends Jimmy in the Library bar and Carlos at the Hippo Bar. The Hippo Bar was outside and you could sit out all night and feel the breeze coming off the Gulf. The food was fabulous and healthy, our favorite being the cocoanut french toast for breakfast. We met many folks from around the US and Canada. Plenty of rest was had. We also shopped in Puerto Morelos and Sunset Sailed on the Resort Deluxe Catamaran. Zoetry gets our highest recommendation.
