To earn the distinctive AAA Five Diamond designation, hotels and restaurants must pass a rigorous evaluation that includes unannounced, in-person inspections, anonymous overnight stays for hotels, and, finally, review by a panel of experts as an additional step to ensure credibility. All AAA Diamond Program hotels and restaurants are re-evaluated annually to ensure they provide the best experience for travelers and diners.


There is no doubt, one of the most exceptional qualities the brand offers, is its remarkable gastronomic offerings. Le Blanc Spa Resort offers culinary options even for the most discerning traveler. All of the six restaurants have been revamped with new décor, upgraded menus, and new and innovative dining concepts. From delectable cuts of meat featuring Certified Angus Beef (™), fine wines from Robert Mondavi to the finest  Moët & Chandon® during dinner, to sweet works of art by world-renowned pastry chef, Antonio Bachour, Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun offers an array of diverse cuisine like no other.


“AAA is pleased to recognize Le Blanc Spa Resort Cancun with the Five Diamond designation, meaning its unwavering attention to both service and surroundings have placed it into the upper echelon of AAA’s Diamond Program,” said Stacey Barber, executive director, AAA Travel Information & Content. “To maintain the exceptional standards required for this designation on a daily basis is an outstanding achievement.
