    Nice French/Mexican fusion!!!!
    I had high hopes about Cafe des Artistes. Really high!!!! The food is exceptional. It's creative. It's very Mexican with strong French influence. The place is gorgeous!!!! It looks like a museum!!!! The garden is equally gorgeous BUT PEOPLE CAN SMOKE THERE - UGH!!!! I ordered the lamb chops and taboule. I didn't really like my taboule appetizer. The lamb chops were to die for!!!! They were not lamby at all. Perfect!!!! They have exceptional choices for wine!!!! Service was top notch!!!! My matcha white chocolate cake really disappointed me. I am a huge matcha fan and the matcha flavor was just not there. We got foie gras and macarons compliments of the chef!!!! What can I do without at Cafe des Artistes? Smoking in their gorgeous garden!!!! They have too many dishes with my least favorite "very Mexican" ingredients (yucky things that repeatedly made it to our dinner table as I was growing up) - like chayote squash - ewwww!!!! What stands out at Cafe des Artistes? Exceptional meat!!!! Sheer beauty!!!! Four stars!!!! Cafe des Artistes is really ridiculously great!!!!

    Nice beach and OK food!!!!
    The place looks really, really nice and the beach is not rocky as it was at The Westin. There is great ambience here!!!! We rented a Balinese bed and it was pretty comfy!!!! We had a time share guy come to us and we agreed to check out their presentation so we lost two hours of our sunning time!!!! However, we did get free hour long massages and an $800 peso discount!!!! It was kind of worth it. We had no problem with our service. Jonathan was great!!!! Although the food we ordered (sliders and club sandwich) was was weak as were the margaritas they did have exceptional craft beers for only $75 pesos!!!! I got the Los Cuentos craft beer!!!!The crowd is cool we actually got to meet some friendly guys from Rancho Cucamonga!!!! The pool is pretty murky - ewwww!!!! There is a dressing room with lockers and showers and they are clean. What can I do without at Mantamar? The time share guy. The weak sliders. The murky pool. What makes Mantamar stand out? It is not run down like Blue Chairs. The great craft beers!!!! The beach!!!! Four stars!!!! Mantamar is really ridiculously cool!!!!
