This hotel is certainly not worth the money we spent. I would not return or recommend to a friend/family. The service here sucked. There were a couple of nice, friendly waiters at the buffet but everyone else at the hotel had bad attitudes. Staff barely speaks English. We were discriminated against. Our refrigerator was leaking. They fixed it and then our room had a really foul smell. It smelled of mildew mixed with a dead animal. Not sure if it was from the new refrigerator or if it was coming from the vents. It may have been from the vents bc my allergies were acting up every time I was in the room but stopped when I stepped outside. It was horrible! WiFi is not free. Bathroom shower had mold. Water pressure was very weak. The 24 hour snack bar was a joke. Food was never fresh and it was middle school cafeteria quality food. The hotel grounds and the pool was very nice. The buffet was pretty good for both breakfast and dinner. Didn't get a chance to try the other restaurants because they wouldn't accommodate us since we were 10 min late for our reservation. The restaurants were by reservation only which was annoying. Beds were comfy. The nightly shows for entertainment was just ok. In my opinion, this hotel is for those who are 55 years old and over. It's a 2.5 star, 3 star at best and it certainly does NOT look recently renovated as they say. Stay somewhere else!

Pro: Great rooms: Spacious, lots of closet space, safe and mini bar. Great beach Bar: The beach is tiny, but neat. It could use less chair though. Location: between downtown and the entertainment district. Cons: The pool is lame., no swim up bar The entertainment is lame. The staff do try, but the hotel is not gear towards it. The food is bland and repetitive. The atmosphere/ambiance is boring. If you are young and single and looking for entertainment and excitement go some place else.

Prior to visiting this hotel I looked it up and saw a few negative comments which made me abit iffy about staying in this hotel. However as soon as we arrived we were warmly welcomed and treated very well. The hotel is very clean, especially the bedrooms. The staff were very friendly and made you feel comfortable. The entertainment team clearly try very hard to get everybody involved and make sure there is something to do all the time. Selina and Sheila especially. All the staff are very helpful and polite. The beach is small however the staff try their best keeping it clean and removing all the seaweed etc. Overall my stay here was fabulous and I wold recommend to anybody that asked. It’s also only a 5-10 min bus ride to the clubs. The busses are 24 hour and pick you up and drop you off outside the hotel.

Stay away !!

Staying at this hotel was such a horrible experience! 1. You have to pay 20 USD for wifi PER device 2. Food is sub par - there are only 3 restaurants at this hotel and most of the food is unhealthy 3. The beach is very small and full of seaweed leaves. There are tons of boats that go by the beach close to the shore. This can't be very healthy 4. The doors of the rooms wouldn't close properly. 5. The staff aren't friendly at all

You get what you pay for with this all inclusive in Cancun. Not a bad resort by any means, just average and expected for the price. We had a great time and enjoyed the pool more than anything else. The beach area is very small and has a lot of palm trees creating too much shade and the small section of beach is also crowded to the max with chairs.
