Awesome Resort!

Wonderful family vacation! Great location, beautiful resort, friendly staff! My girls really enjoyed the explorers club - the staff that work there are incredibly friendly and responsible. We were very impressed!

Excellent service, super friendly staff

This resort is very nice, very clean and the resort staff is outstanding, super friendly and eager to please. Of all of the resorts that we have visited, the most remarkable thing about this one is how the ENTIRE staff treats guests AND EACH OTHER - they are not only super agreeable and courteous to guests but also among themselves. As a result, no matter what you do there, you will have a good time. While all of the staff was excellent, Miguel, Geo, Dylan and Marlon were particularly outstanding and made every effort to make sure that we were having a great time. With regard to the physical property, the beach is beautiful, but the water (like most every other resort in Cancun) is full of seaweed - there is a full-time crew cleaning up the seaweed on the shore but NOT what's in the water. The main pool is huge and can be enjoyed by both adults and kids. The rooms are also very nice, clean and have a mini bar that is stocked daily with all kinds of drinks. The walls are pretty thin so if your neighbors upstairs or next to you are talking in a loud voice or yelling, you will likely hear them (particularly in the early morning hours). Explorer Club for kids is great - it is staffed by super nice ladies who REALLY know how to make sure that your kids are having fun. Food is good and the selection is broad enough to appeal to everyone. Highly recommend the bike ride to Puerto Morelos - make sure to take some $ with you.

Great place!

Friendly staff. Entertainment crew was great. They always were trying to get guests to participate but never pushed anyone. Pool concierges were very helpful. No bracelets like you find at other all inclusives. Would recommend resort if you want to relax. If you want a high party night life, this isn't the place for you. The resort is family friendly and LGBTA friendly.

We're coming back again!

Everything was fabulous! The room, the service, the food. the pools,the beach, everything was first class. I cant wait to go back. As a matter of fact I am going back next year. I especially liked the swim-up bar. Great idea. Never have to leave the water if you don't want to.
