    Ooh, I love this place too--tough call between it and Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This place has a much smaller beach (and it's a little rocky in front), but the villas are all very, very private (with small pools)--it's easy to feel like you're the only guests here. I kind of think of this place as the beach resort for people who don't really like lying on the beach--it's very shady and quiet and intimate-feeling.
