Just arrived back from our honeymoon from this resort. We have had the holiday of a lifetime. The weather was perfect the staff extremely friendly and our room was kept nice and clean . We both thought the food was amazing nothing was overcooked or under done. Anyone who has put on here the foods bad seriously needs there heads looking at. It was nicer than some top restaurants in the UK. The trips we found booking through our reps are pricey and it does pay to shop about after some people got the same for half the cost. Diana from the moon and stars spa looked after us well and we had a full 80 min massage to finish our trip for a very reasonable rate. Drinks are all branded spirits and they aren't shy on there measures either. Over all we loved every minute and wouldn't hesitate to book again. More>

Highly recommend this resort, we traveled the first week of September and it was not busy at all. Great for us, because we did not have to make reservations to eat at any of the restaurants. Food to me is not a big concern, there was plenty options and it was decent specially when it's all inclusive. Plenty of pool space, food, drinks. Be aware that the restaurants close for a period of time to get ready for lunch & dinner. Our young adults spent a lot of time in the snack bar/pool and loved it. My wife and I just wanted to relax, so we spent most of the time at the salt water adults only pools. The lifeguard,Emiliano, spent time with us and showed us where to snorkel, Great guy. Marbella Gomez Sanchez was always on top of things and made sure we had everything we needed at the Beach Club. We couldn't thank her enough. Overall, it is an amazing place to relax, rooms where nice (not a big concern of mine since we spent all day outdoors). All staff makes you feel great and want to make sure you have a great time.

The property was ok. There was a lot of food selection but the quality was ok. We liked that the resort was close to Xcaret. One day at that park was enough for us. The room that we were in was recently updated. Nice decor and the beds were comfortable. More>

Awesome Resort!

The Hotel is beautiful, the restaurants are great and the staff is very helpful. We went on a family vacation with my husband, myself and our two adult children. The resort is situation right next to Xcaret Park so it offers a wide variety of things to do. The hotel was undergoing some renovations but this did not seem to interfere with our stay at all. The rooms were very nice but nothing to brag about. The location was very nice, next to a Very Warm pool. Be prepared to do a lot of walking! The room buildings are spread out and meander throughout the property. There are Stairs EVERYWHERE! The Beach is a manmade cove and was fun to wade in and look at all the fish. There really is not a beach here. There is a small area to sit in the sand, but this is most definitely not a beach destination. The restaurants were good, we tried everyone of them. There is a dress code for the men, no sleeveless shirts and long pants. The bars all had top shelf liqueurs and were included in the all inclusive price. Take a day and go to Xcaret, there is a ton of things to do there. We did the unlimited and did not use it on most days. I think a day entrance would be enough. The biggest draw back of the resort was the Vacation Club. They bugged you to sit through their pitch and promised a reward at the end. We did sit through it and the did give us "Resort Bucks" that had to be spent in the resort. They continued to ask us to listen to the pitch every single day! But we did meet multiple families that have joined and love it. There are animals everywhere in this resort! Monkeys fly from the trees, deer, Iguanas and Tejon (Mexican Racoon). They ask that you do not feed them, but Iguanas love bananas! Would I recommend this property? Yes to people who like the jungle side of Mexico. Not to beach lovers. Would I go back? No. I rarely ever visit the same place twice. More>

Inclusive, but not exclusive!

Mostly as expected and advertised, but being "modified" by new owners BarcelĂł group and probably being turned into a "vacations" holidays for life (25 years) type shared ownership site, with opportunities to "buy" always in your face interfering with a relaxing holiday. Seaward side is mostly rocky leaving only a very small inlet beach, usually overcrowded, but worse is the supply of free beach towels issued exceeding the number of guests, allowing multiple "dawn raid" reservations of loungers both around the pools and along the beach - many then remaining untouched all day. Why don't the management just collect them all up at 8 a.m.? Food at the main self service main restaurant was plentiful and comprehensive; guests create the variety by exercising choice and moderation. However some still prefer to load too much of everything onto several plates and "graze" as they return to their table, which is not a pretty sight. Reception, bar staff and housekeeping were excellent and friendly. We had opted for Royal Club extra which provided exclusive pools, an additional select dining room and allowed for discreet queue jumping at each of the other restaurants (which we mostly used each evening) when busy. For once the evening gents dress code of long trousers and closed shoes was enforced in the option restaurants - good! and thank you! Generally a forested area with the well maintained grounds, historical ruins, free roaming deer, monkeys (who stayed in the trees!), geckos and other animals a delight. We went in July to share a big "0" birthday with family, and were surprised by the high humidity - be prepared to cope with multiple damp shirts, trousers, skirts etc. that you need to dry each day - we actually bought an extra pack of hangers from Walmart while we were there!
