Hotel Playa Turquesa

Hotel Sirenis Playa Turquesa was formerly called Occidental Grand Playa Turquesa. This all-inclusive opened in 2005 at Playa Yuraguanal, a beautiful swathe of white sand and turquoise reef-protected waters a few miles west of Guardalavaca. Sprawling over 27 acres, it is surrounded on three sides by scrub forest good for birding. Architecturally uninspired – it reminds us a Lego creation – it is also a bit gaudy, with an exterior painted in bright yellow and blues. Still, the landscaping is a major draw, and things also improve in the gracious lobby, with its rich terra-cotta and gold color schemes.

The dominant feature here is a bi-level complex of seven swimming pools, including an upper infinity horizon pool and a circular main pool enhanced by natural limestone landscaping with waterfalls. Young kids get their own pool and will also enjoy the sand pit and playpen. The restaurants here – five in all – are not stand-outs.

Decor in the 531 spacious, air-conditioned guest rooms is charming and enhanced by tropical pastels: cream walls, sponge-washed robin's-eggshell-blue furniture, and blue-and-beige check tile floors. All come with the expected amenities, including satellite TV, phone, mini-refrigerator, in-room safe, and hair dryer. All but six rooms are standards (four equipped for handicapped travelers); the rest are suites. However, families might want to choose the more spacious two-room bungalows. Be warned: some of the rooms are a long ways from the restaurants etc., but you can call for a golf cart shuttle (good luck). And several facilities are atop limestone ledges and there are plenty of steps.
