Wow wow wow!! We had the TIME OF OUR LIVES!! Seriously! It was the best week of our lives! I will share more soon along with pictures.
We did the swimming with dolphins, extreme snorkeling, couples massage, Rachel had pedicure and manicure, we ordered room service daily. It really was like a paradise... we keep saying how we need to go back ASAP!!! ;)
We cannot thank you all enough. You made our dreams come true!
Had a great trip! Unico is a 10 out of 10. We didn't do any excursions, never left the resort!
Unico was amazing!!! We have officially set the bar! 😊
There were many things we enjoyed about the resort . The service, the food and the drinks exceeded our expectations! Each restaurant held a menu with the most delicious food options! The walk up bistros within the hotel were quick, and provided the best snacks- on the go. Every restaurant we went to had the best service with the most well informed staff! It was impressive to see all of their knowledge of food, wine and drink- in action. Room service was efficient, and offered an excellent alternative snack at the end of a long sunny day. Last but not least, let's not leave out the poolside delivery of fireside pizza- and chips and guacamole! I think we ate this almost every early afternoon, as we prepared ourself for the day- delicious! Below is a picture of the risotto from the Italian restaurant in Unico.
Our first full day at the resort we participated in some pool volleyball, and in turn, created friends within the resort for the rest of our stay. The balance of a mature crowd, plus those who really are "unique" made the experience of Unico relaxing and enjoyable.
We ended up stepping out to swim with the dolphins, as well at the sunset and sail tour in the evening. Both excursions were very memorable! We highly recommend both to anyone who visits. We ended up enjoying the sunset sail with our new friends, and everyone involved had the best time. Even in the restaurant the next night, we overheard people referencing the fun pastimes of our sail trip 😊 Our picture with the "crazy little thing called love" ended up coming across us during a walk on the beach down the shore. We're still not sure what we stumbled upon- it looked somewhat abandoned. The other pictures our a view from our hotel room, as well as the pool.

I wanted to drop you a note regarding our Unico vacation. You hit it out of the ballpark!! This was the best resort we have ever been to!! It absolutely checked all the boxes and then some.
The resort is beautiful, clean and relaxing. Loved that we had air conditioning everywhere as it was very hot. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating.
Room – Our room was the best room in the resort. We were on the 5th floor on the end of the building directly facing the ocean. We had the pleasure of enjoying the ocean view anytime. We could also look over the pool area if we wanted for the entertainment. We were close to everything especially the beach.
The room itself was perfect! The bed very comfy and luxurious. The bathroom awesome with a rain showerhead and two sinks. You were right about the robes, I loved them!
Beach – we loved the beach. It was clean, sometimes wavy. We were spoiled with a waiter who brought us drinks throughout the day. It was never crowded on the beach, which was so nice.
We did see an occasional stingray on the floor of the ocean. So please tell your guests to shuffle their feet when they enter.
Food – All the food was amazing. We went to every restaurant for dinner and the all was wonderful. It was so nice that the dress code was not strict. The buffets were unbelievable.
Butler – we had Daniel. He was very nice and made reservations for us each night for dinner. He told us the second to last night that we could have mixology come to our room. Unfortunately, they never came.
Excursions – As you know we love snorkeling. We opted to go outside the included excursions, as I was not interested in zip lining and rappelling on the snorkel excursion. We went with Vacation Makers and booked a snorkel excursion that we loved. We also splurged and did the Whale Shark excursion. It was worth it and a once in a lifetime experience that we will treasure forever.
Highlight of the trip – watching the huge sea turtles come into our beach and lay eggs. We also got to witness the release of baby turtles into the ocean. So amazing!!
Thanks again for the recommendation. It was a home run!!!
