Nice hotel, but not the best
JetSetBrunette28, Salem, Massachusetts
Thu Sep 22 13:27:48 EDT 2016
Overall, I would say the whole experience at this hotel was about a 3. The hotel itself was very beautiful, and enormous. There were several pools that were clean and nicey maintained. We stayed in the Hacienca private club section, and our pool/beach/buffet area was quiet and secluded. Our room was nice as well- our only complaint was that the shower design allowed for a lot of water leakage onto an entirely tiled bathroom floor, making for a couple of close calls! However, the bed was spacious, the AC worked perfectly (thank God) and we were very comfortable. However, the food overall was pretty poor quality. I expected something of the sort, being that it was all-inclusive, but even still I was quite disappointed. Even most of the a la carte options were a let down...at Le Gourmet, for instance, we both ordered the filet mignon and received something more like a hamburger. The restaurant Tequila was by far the best restaurant, and the saving grace for the food. If you stay here, definitely give it a try! The service was mixed. At all of the buffets and restaurants we received top quality service from the staff. Many of them really went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful. However, I felt that elsewhere on the resort the staff was very abrupt, rude, and couldn't seem to be bothered. Our maid kept trying to come into our room when we were in it, even though we would have the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door. The room didn't ever feel truly clean even right after she left, and there were a few days that we had sandy sheets. We had a different maid on one of the days, who did a great job, and that made the difference especially marked. Spa was a beautiful facility, and nice service from the staff. As others have mentioned, you will need to pay extra for a safe box in your room. More>

Lovely holiday

Arrived on the 6th September quick check in then taken to are room very clean as was the bedding and towels the bed was covered in rose petals with champagne and fruit and we had been upgraded. The fridge was well stocked but after 4 days the chocolate bar and crisps stopped being surplied no milk for tea. Are maid was first class we where in villa 9b top floor The pool was lovely and warm very clean spotless till the locals came in at the weekends eating and drinking glasses on edges pool all you hear is the lifeguard blowing his whistle at them they try to force you out of your lounges after your shade this happens on beach as well some are very rude The restaurant also very clean food was plenty the prawns are very yummy plenty of meats but not very hot most of food luke warm lovely afters Take dollars not pesos where ever you go shops excursions marked up in dollars you can pay in pesos just have to converted The shows very good especially the Lion King ,Grease, Michael Jackson . The wild life I was in heaven coaties agouti iguana and a paca and my social flycatcher which sounds like it's saying I can do it, All staff very good the hotel very well run the land trains brilliant Coba beach better than Tulum beach take some bread and you will be surrounded by pretty fish just go out to the blue bouys You have to pay for safe 5 dollars a day I think it should be free, excursions very expensive if you do 5 excursions if there are two of you it will cost you extra thousand pounds there are a few cheaper ones as well I would like to add . We went to Chichen Itza with Tui collections it's the first one I have been on you get on sober and come back tipsy the guide Sandro great very well informed Farfee and driver as well get holiday.

2 weeks of relaxation

Arrived at the hotel on the 5th September. Booked in with no problem. Very efficient service with delivering our cases to room. The main reception area is lovely and massive and has the wow factor! We stayed in room 31607 villa 16b. The room is huge. Spotlessly clean. The cleaner came everyday. Fresh towels everyday. Mini fridge replenished everyday. We couldn't fault it! We didn't get any snacks in our fridge so I left a wee note and we were left crisps and chocolate with no problems. Our rep at hotel (Thomson's) well its sell, sell, sell! Nothing about the hotel, grounds what to do! We were told just to go out and explore when we asked anything! We bought tickets for captain cook and coco bongos. The coco bongos were gold tickets so this meant no queuing seated at table! Absolutely rubbish! It's all about commission!! You also have to pay for a safe $80.00 for 2 weeks. You are allowed 1 hour free wifi a day. Download hotel app and you can book for different restaurants or spa treatments etc. Any costs you run up is paid for at the end of your stay. Grounds... Are beautiful. So well kept! The gardeners work so hard especially in the heat. My hubby had fresh coconut straight from the tree! He loved it! The animals are amazing! Watching them amused us so much! Iguanas some of them are huge!! The coatis are so funny! Pools..... There is pools scattered all over. The lively pool is fun with all sorts of games and music getting played. With swim up bar. Trying to get served can take a wee bit of time but not really a problem. We liked the quiet pool area. No music under canopies. Just blissful. Our bar tender Pedro was amazing. He came over when he saw our glasses were empty, replenished them, made us special cocktails. So friendly, welcoming and always smiling. I do think that the pools do need cleaned more regularly. Food.... All the staff work very hard and the ones we came across were always polite and helpful. We loved the buffet it's massive although sometimes the food could be a bit hotter. My hubby is vegetarian but there was always plenty of choices for him. I was actually expecting Mexican food to be spicy but it's not it's quite bland. Really disappointed by this even when we went to Mexican restaurant there was nothing spicy. Night life.... Well the animation team work so hard. They put on entertainment day and night but we are really not into shows etc so cannot comment. There is a disco at the hacienda but it doesn't have air con so we didn't bother going. It was to hot to suffer It closes later around 2ish. But that's it really. The main bar in hotel closes at 11pm where there is some singer and entertainment but it's not very good. A let down really. There's shops and stalls down by the hacienda but it's mostly over priced tat. Also there's a casino. We did meet some lovely people although there was your usual ones that pushed in and quite obnoxious but then that's not the hotels fault! We did love our holiday and came home relaxed! You also have to pay to come out of Mexico which is $60.00 per person so add this onto your spending money and keep it with your passport. More>

Ok hotel

In general a good hotel but I would rate rooms 3 star no more, food is fine and the drinks very good. The grounds and pools are excellent. All the staff are very pleasant and hardworking. It is a shame the rooms lack any wow factor at all being dated and very dark. Be aware of the timeshare salesmen in the foyer. Had a nightmare check in and given a very poor room to start with but several hours and many phone calls later moved to a better room, with the help of Oscar who was very good. Plenty of wildlife around the grounds, beach is lovely to look at but sea full of rocks so bit of care needed , in general a good place for a chill holiday but if you think you are paying for 5 star luxury you will be disappointed.

Big mistake going here

In the 34 years I have been going abroad this hotel was the worse,the food diabolical, hot food cold, cold food tepid, and the ice cream you could level, the salads told not too have because of the water they are washed in, I lost a lot of weight here, staff friendly when you could get the attention, need more waiters etc. 4 days in we had to move rooms as the hot water was brown and smelley, went from a ground floor where it was quiet to top floor opposite swimming pool and snack bar which wasn't good for me as I am asthmatic and have co.p.d, the room we got moved to hadn't been checked, our reps were about as useful as a chocolate tea pot, cockroaches in our room and in the restaurant they were dead but hadn't been moved, the resort was lovely and clean but certainly not for us, we were in bed early as there wasn't anything to do, we thought it was just us but quite a few other people felt the same way. First time ever I have complained, definitely not our kind of hotel. Just to let people know safety deposit box 5 dollars a day disgusting, it's all inclusive. More>
