COUPLE'S TRIP

overall experience is OK... clean rooms, nice pool, the beach is ok but don't expect crystal clear water, the night shows were not so good and there is no bar, music or entertainment in the lobby. recommended if you have a limited budget otherwise go somewhere else.

Relaxing, foodful, sunny vacation!

Booked this hotel for seven nights because of its size, restaurant choices, location, and price. The hotel is very large and there is a trolley that goes around every ten minutes if you don't want to walk. The size allows you to lay at the quiet pool or the pool on the beach that is much larger with many activities happening all day. The food was excellent and always available. They even open a snack bar from 11-1am for people who get hungry after hitting the 24hr bar. The restaurants are steak, seafood, Italian, French, and Mexican and we tried all of them except steak. We had five star service at all of them and the food was delightfilul. The staff at this resort are very friendly and are always working very hard. The rooms were nicely kept but could use some repairs (minor things like a cracked tile or a stain on a cabinet) but overall they are very clean and always tended to. If you want a relaxing trip where you can eat, drink, and enjoy the sunshine this is a great place to go.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

We walked ten minutes north along the beach from this hotel to find crystal clear water and mangroves to snorkel and swim in. Worth the short walk!!!

a couple get away

I just went for 4 nights, the room was fine was clean room service no problem, but the drinks were horrible taste like gasoline the most cheap kind of bottles that you can imagine, food quality was OK but can improve a lot the pool is 4 feet deep and the shore is OK. There Is No Fun At all.....Specially A Night time. I don't recommend this hotel for anybody.

In Need of Relaxation

Very pleasant staff that go above and beyond to greet you and make your trip enjoyable. Pool area used more than the beach. Enjoyable games during day to take part in or just watch. Could use more than 1 choice of a draft beer, and cooled cups to make it stay cold. Not a fan of hand rinsed, still soapy plastic glasses to drink out of. No night life, the beach party was not a typical beach party. Overall relaxing and a good time had.

Amazing get away

Husband and I totally enjoyed our stay . The swim up suite was completely worth it. The food was great. The whole resort was very well maintained . Met wonderfully friendly staff and other guests . Everything is no problem. Didn't get a bath robe when I requested one they said those are for resort members only . So if you usually wear one you should bring yours from home

Shopping tip: In Hotel

Ok playa del Carmen is fun the resort has a shuttle that goes there every couple of hours use it for this destination it's $5 pp each way we paid 20 dollars round trip. Cab is 40. Round trip. Also the gifts at resort store are a good going rate with no bartering and relaxed atmosphere FYI I'd ask for the 10% discount when u spend 50 dollars

Wonderful vacation & budget friendly

We had a wonderful vacation! Many food options and the quality was good! Rooms were cleaned daily. The beach and pools were wonderful, there was no trouble finding a spot every day. Many attractions in the area! We were impressed with the quality and beauty of the resort especially for the cost!
