Kibi-Kibi Restaurant:

If you read reviews about Hotel Xcaret Arte, one of the most popular restaurants people mention is Kibi-Kibi. This Yucatecan-style Lebanese restaurant stands out for its incredible cuisine including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s such a unique cuisine and fusion that makes it a special perk for staying at Casa de Los Artistas.

Your Own Butler:

Casa de los Artistas offers professional butler service that attends to each guests’ individual needs and requests. This ended up being such a time saver for us. Whenever we wanted to change our reservations for dinner or for a park, we could simply text our butler on Whatsapp instead of having to walk to a help desk. Especially when it came harder to get dinner reservations, it helped to have our butler helping us out.

Additionally, we were able to ask questions about anything we might need. It was such a big convenience that really enhanced our overall experience .

Access to the Other Side of the Resort + Restaurants:

While most guests of Hotel Xcaret Arte can only visit the Arte side of the resort. However, Casa de los Artistas guests get access to both sides. For us this was nice for adding in some extra walking around the resort and seeing more of it’s beauty. I liked all of the different bridges and getting to hike up the giant circular pyramid. 

But this real treat to me was getting to have brunch at Las Cuevas on Sunday! This is an absolutely insane brunch with every time of food imaginable! You ge to dine on high end sushi from fish caught that day, crab legs, all types of Mexican cuisine, and at least 30 different types of desserts (I’m going to write a guide on just the Las Cuevas Brunch because it is so incredible).

We didn’t get the chance to have the other restaurants on the Mexico side, but it was definitely nice to know we could have tried some if we got bored with our current options.
