Loving Las Ventanas...

For years, I've heard how fabulous Las Ventanas is. And now, after spending the past four days at this Rosewood resort in Los Cabos, Mexico I understand what all the hype has been about. It starts with the setting, sleek white buildings set against the deep blue sea, with beautiful landscaping and creative decor (illuminated trees, stunning chandeliers, colorful furnishings), and continues with the impeccable service--which clearly starts from top with Managing Director Lionel Alvarez and Resort Manager Akis Neocleous. NB: The staff here is the most attentive and intuitive I've encountered in years--if only service was this good at every hotel!

The attention to detail is remarkable. From the four kinds of butter (lime, peanut, salted and plain) on the breakfast table to the sewing kit customized to match my wardrobe to the pool butlers who deliver personal iPods and offer to clean your sunglasses poolside, EliteTravelGal is highly impressed.

And let's not forget the accommodations (she says while enjoying the ocean views from Villa Paraiso, aka, the presidential suite!). This huge three-bedroom/3.5 bath, stand alone, bi-level villa features its own private pool and jacuzzi, a full kitchen/butler's entrance, a work-out room, a main floor master suite with massive bathroom/outdoor rain shower, hand-crafted furnishings, colorful artwork, flat-screen TVs, a full bar, and beyond. If you don't need quite so much space, the oceanview junior suites with rooftop terrace/plunge pool should work out just fine.
