I am an
owner. I have just returned from Luxxe in NV.
This is what I know:
Top notch staff are working at the building. They took their top 10%
and trained them further. They can not do enough for you.
Heating capability in pools. Very nice upgrade.
You don't have to worry about pool towel cards. The towels are on the
chairs everyday and are replaced throughout the day.
The cement that they used for the pool deck area is fantastic, it
doesn't get hot, so when you walk out of the pool you don't have to try
and find your shoes at the edge, you can walk around in bare feet with
Between 12 - 12:30 everyday, a pool area staff member brings around a
cooler with homemade juice popsicles - amazing taste and a nice cool
treat everyday. Although it does look like the seals over at the marina
when the guy comes out with the cooler, as everyone follows him to the
edge of the pool waiting for their treat!
Then as you are relaxing on your lounge a staff member comes over and
cleans your glasses for you.
A little later on you get a nice ice cold face cloth given to you that
has a lovely citrus scent. Very refreshing.
Cafe Del Lago has been upgraded with lovely terraces, it looks like at
some point it will be a Grand Luxxe restaurant only.
The Blue Fish cafe is excellent. The shrimp/crab burger is fantastic as
are the paninni's and salads. They also serve amazing chips/salsa with
every meal, including sweet potato chips.
There is music every evening in the lounge area. One night violin,
piano, sax etc. Very good talent and a nice coffee area and lounge bar
Every floor has a washer/dryer area.
Check in is smooth, efficient and includes a nice cool drink to sip on.
I don't believe that the ability to pre-order supplies for your room is
ready yet, but it is supposed to be coming soon.
The 2nd building has been capped off and in fact they have started to
put windows/doors in. It is expected to open in November.
The 3rd building is beginning to be poured and I think scheduled opening
is late spring of 2011.
There are two new restaurants off the property. If you walk to the Sea
Garden (or get a golf cart to take you to Sea Garden if you find the 10
minute walk to long). Then cross the street. To the right of the OXXO
store (if you are facing the store) at the end of the bridge is a large
white condo building (maybe 4 stories high) with shops and restaurants.
One restaurant is Portabello's, which is an italian restaurant that is
also in Marina Vallarta. We didn't get a chance to eat there but heard
through the pool scuttlebut that it was excellent.
The second restaurant is Prime 159. It is excellent. Service is
fantastic and the food is top notch. Steaks, pork chops, fish, chicken,
lots of sides, nice wine list and truly a lovey dinner. Also they have
daily specials now, including wings, etc. If you go on Trip
Advisor.com you can find the reviews and also a list of specials.
This is what we have been told:
Second tower will have the 40,000 sq.ft. SPA.
There will be 7 restaurants that are for Luxxe only.
More of the pools will be heated.
They are now including a small kitchenette (microwave/fridge) in the
suite lock off units.
They are going to have a type of Marche restaurant at building 1, where
you can grab salads, sandwiches, breakfast items etc. to take to your
room, or to the pool area.
All in all it looks like the wait has been worth is. We bought our unit
off a grainy photocopy and it has been a long time coming, but glad
we're able to now enjoy.
Thanks Wendy, we appreciate your comments......
