Wonderful family vacation

We just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay. We had read the reviews, and my husband couldnt' believe how many complaints there were. Service was friendly, check in was easy. Food, bars, bathrooms seemed to be everywhere we looked. We stayed in Villa 21, a very easy walk to tram stop, La Gran Tortuga, the small pool, dolphin area, and snack bar. The rooms were spacious enough for our family of four, and the kids each had their own twin beds to sleep in. Ours was a bit strange-- two beds pushed together, but each was larger than a twin, smaller than a full. They felt hard, but I slept very well. The pools were enormous and clean, bars were plentiful. We did go to Coba one day for the kids water park-- it was incredible, until they had to close it for cleaning after a "code brown." That's not the resort's fault though. Drinks were better at Coba, entertainment was more lively there as well. Depends on what you were looking for. Tulum was very relaxed and not rowdy-- great for families or couples looking to relax and not go wild. With a four night stay we got 2 a la carte meals-- booked them as soon as we got our rooms. La Gran Tortuga was Brazilian bbq-- excellent selection. Bottled wine was extra, but a good bottle of Malbec was only $20. We also ate at Mediterraneo (seafood) at Coba-- again very good. There, my 5 year old discovered she loves stone crab claws-- good thing they were included! Buffets had a vast array of foods to choose from, and each day was a different theme, with some mainstays. I think I had guacamole and ceviche at almost every meal. Desserts were universally dismal, but I just ate more guacamole. The entertainment was cheezy, but that's not my thing anyway. They were enthusiastic, but not broadway or even cruise-worthy. We did a one-day excursion to Tulum ruins and Xel Ha. The tour sales person did advise against it and recommended spending more time at each, but we didn't have much time. Both tours were great, but I would agree with her if you have the time. Xel Ha was an amazing park with so many fun activities (lazy river, snorkeling, zip lining into the lagoon, etc). If you only have a half day like I did, you won't have time to do the pay activities. Make sure you bring small bills for tipping!

What a fabulous resort!

The room, the view, the staff, the incredible beaches,the fabulous service made for the very best vacation we'd ever had. The only complaint was the seal on the shower door made the water leak all over the floor & they didn't seem to care. Or maybe there was a language barrier? not sure. Didn't in any way mar our sincere enjoyment of the week we had there. We'll definitely go back!

Great trip with some needs improvement

The resort is massive, probably the biggest resort I will ever experience in my life. I really enjoyed the walking and shuttle service. For the most part everything was great. Some negatives was there is just too many people and understaffed. The food overall was just ok. The Italian restaurant Portofino was by far the worst Italian restaurant I've ever been to. I really enjoyed Riviera Maya, playa del Carmen and the Tulum ruins. The staff here work extremely hard to satisfy the tourists and keep the property well maintained. Had a great vacation but I like exploring different resorts and areas. Happy I came here and met some awesome people but once is good enough. My rating is a 4.5/5

Great place to go
