The Beloved resort is everything the other reviews here have said and more. My wife and I stayed here for five nights in July and it was by far one of the most beautiful and wonderful resorts we've ever been to. From the moment we arrived and were immediately greeted at the door with cold washcloths and champagne we knew this was going to be a special trip. Checking in was a smooth process and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Our room wasn't ready yet so we were escorted to the Aroma for breakfast. This was certainly a special touch rather than just being told to just wait in the lobby. Once it was ready we were then escorted to our room but not without a quick tour of the resort first. We had a two story casita suite with rooftop plunge pool. It was gorgeous and spacious with a super comfortable bed and large bathroom. Be warned for those who are shy about their bathroom habits it is not as private as most places with no door to speak of but it is still large with a great shower with multiple shower heads. There is a whirlpool inside the room opposite the bed as well. Our view was wonderful. The one very minor issue we had was that the room was right next to a major pathway that had some guest and staff traffic with some noise. Next time I would request a room more towards the middle instead. Everything else about our stay overshadowed this issue so that it didn't even matter.
The resort itself was beyond beautiful, great landscaping; immaculate and well kept. The beach was great, there was always a place to sit, layback and relax. I don't think it is mentioned very much but there are activities to partake in, all included. You can use kayaks, paddle boards, snorkel gear and a small catamaran. If you ask nicely the staff who manage the gear might take you out to a small shipwreck that is fantastic for snorkeling. There are plenty of group activities as well. A board near the lobby will list all the activities scheduled for each day of the week.
The drinks and food are fantastic. We tried all but one restaurant during our time there and we thought that the food was great. We were able to try so many different dishes. If there was something on the menu that isn't quite to your liking they will change it. Room service is available 24/7 and is quite good as well. The drinks of course are plentiful and well made. The Lupita lounge stands out as one the best places to get a well made cocktail.
I can't say enough about the staff. They are all beyond friendly. Always saying "hola" and asking how everything is for you. This is an all inclusive resort but tipping is not prohibited as it is at some others. We tipped to everyone we could as it was very well deserved. The general manager even made it a point to come speak to us to check in on our stay and ask questions on how everything was. This is another special touch that you don't see at other places.
Finally I wanted to mention the spa. We took part in the complimentary water therapy but we also had a couple's massage. This is a spa that has no other comparison for me. It is so spacious and calming. The style is beautiful and again the staff are wonderful. The massage rooms are quiet and relaxing and afterwards you go to another room to wind down even further with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries for us. I'm sure there are others spas like this at high end resorts but for the price at the Beloved spa you get it all there too. We can't wait to go back there again. For us the fact that it is a smaller resort means you get special attention like nowhere else around. It is far enough from Cancun that you don't feel like so much of a tourist. I can't say enough good things about this place. Anyone who goes should have a great time. This is not a party resort. It is a wonderful place for adults who want to relax and have a fantastic time. Thanks so much to the Beloved staff, we will be back!
