Wonderfull Vacation

I have really enjoyed my stay there. Very nice, clean hotel for good price. We have stayed in the new building, which was a bit walk to the beach, however very nicely renovated with lots of room and new bathroom. Everything functional. Food in the hotel was also very tasty. Towel service was open from 7am to 7pm. Never seen this before anywhere else. Bar always had what we wanted to drink. My only recommendation for the hotel is to add some music in the common area near the lobby bar. In the afternoon, or night, would have been nice to listen to some music. It can be just simply radio or CD playing, does not have to be live music. They already have speaker there so I do not think it would be such a hard thing to do. More>

Superb Customer Service and Great Vegetarian Food!

My husband and I stayed there from May 29th to June 1st and I must say that Alejandra, Captain Ancieto, and Manuel made our visit to Playa del Carmen very pleasant with their superb customer service. We have reserved an ocean view room and although we were happy with the room, the construction noise next to the building was very bothersome. Alejandra made sure that we could choose another room that we liked but as most of the ocean view rooms were booked and she realized that this trip is as our honeymoon trip, she upgraded our room to a suite. We were very grateful as it was very cozy and quiet without any noise from outside. Also, as we are vegetarian, Captain Aniceto made sure we had our veggie grill dish every night for dinner. Each night, we had different veggie dish with beautiful presentation! He even got our food ordered for the night he was off so we would be sure we have it on a certain time. Also, we had no problem eating lunch at the buffet as there were so many different variety of vegetarian food available to us. In fact, all food/dessert we had was well made, fresh and delicious. I also got a great 90 min professional massage from Manuel! Due to working on computer a lot, all my neck and shoulders were rather fairly stiff and he worked hard to make me feel better . Too bad we were only there for a few days and he had his days off right after my massage, as I wish I could have gotten another massage from him! They also had great entertainment and drink/food service all night long next to the pool. The beach was also very clean. Overall, we had a great time over at the resort. Thank you for the great customer service as it made our trip an unforgettable one! More>

Great but....

Service is great until something doesn't function in room. Repeatly asked them to fix something but got we'll go to the room and get it fixed. It took our representive next morning to start the ball rolling and it was fixed immediately . Room was clean can't complain. The garden area where you can relax and enjoy was a smokers lounge a lot of nonsmoking signs but nobody to enforce it, everybody smoking anywhere regardless The buffet restaurant was great but can use some a/c to eat comfortably One situation that rubbed me the wrong way was that I tried to purchase water at the boutique and was refused because I did not have a room number, I had the resort bracelet but the room was not ready therefore could not buy anything. Entertainment was great, servers, bartenders were polite and great no complaints Second time in Mexico, will be back Yes I forgot the wifi is awful unlike other resorts in Mexico More>

Very nice beach, excellent food at the buffet and all the restaurants. Cappucinos at the bar of the lobby were delicious. I love the size of the hotel, you are always close of everything. Rooms are very standard but clean and comfortable. The pool is kind of small. More>

Very clean hotel with a few bugs

I think this is the first time I write a review on a hotel but I just want to help others. We visited Mexico first time and were very nice surprised, the beach is beautiful with nice sand and nice waves.The hotel was average- 3+* however quite nice and very very clean!! Rooms are very simple but we don't spend time in rooms anyway.What I was missing there is a fridge and also never experienced in my life to pay for a safe in all inclusive resort. I have read some complaints for check-in staff, I have to agree- they never smile and you feel like you are bothering them when asking something. What I see as a problem was the water supply, there was only one bottle of water upon our arrival waiting in a room but that's it, we had to buy more bottles and keep filling them in the restaurant or a bar to have a water in the room.Again..first experience in all inclusive...not sure I liked it.If you forget you are thirsty unless you walk to 24/7 bar.I would also point out the noise in corridors in the evenings especially after a long day on the beach you want to sleep in, not possible to fall asleep before midnight due to the noise in corridors,we stayed on the first floor by the stairs and I didn't sleep very good not even one night. And sometimes we were up until 4 due to this noise.If you go to this hotel demand a room with no connection doors between two rooms especially if you are travelling solely, in a couple or in 2 ..the connecting doors are not very well isolated and you hear everything happening in the next room, unfortunately we have had a sick lady coughing up all the time so again - didn't rest much.The last negative thing I would point out is that don't expect the beach boy waiter to bring you drinks unless you have more cash in hand (10-20 USD)..we tried it with less and one time he did bring us drinks but never seen him near us again after.What I really like about this hotel is the nature and surrounding - everything is clean and beautiful, also the staff in the main buffet incl cleaning staff and food staff,lobby bar bartenders and gardeners.
