    Great holiday but service could be improved

    Holiday didn't get off to the greatest start with a 75 minute wait to check in after a 10 hour flight! Insufficient staff and no one could explain what was going on. Very poor. We followed this up the next day with the hotel manager and did see an improvement in the number of staff but that didn't really help us. Otherwise, location for Xcaret Park, wildlife, rooms, pools and food were all good. Although you don't usually need to book the al a carte restaurants, any men in your group do need to wear long trousers so make sure you pack them!

    Had a fabulous holiday made some memories, the waiter Manuel Perez was fantastic , the snorkelling was amazing , so much sea life, Emilio the lifeguard was so helpful, Yuliana Garcia , the steak restaurant and the sea food restaurant were amazing .they had a show on every night but was repeated after 7 days ,you have so many pools to choose from and here was so much wildlife, I had monkeys on my balcony most days , you also have the xcaret park adjoined to it , well worth the extra money and the evening show was out of this world, the only thing that let it down was the cleanliness and some of the restaurants

    7 day anniversary trip

    Worst service ever!! They are idiots every single one. So much scamming is going on at this hotel. Do not leave anything in your room unless you want it stolen. Lost a 300$ shoes, and over 200$ worth of stuff. Whenever you try to ask what happened to them they will continue sending you back and forth between guest services and the front desk over and over. Worst experience ever. Do not bother going here the staff are complete morons who do not care for your needs. If you are looking for the worst and most frustrating trip of your life this is the place for you

    Very nice hotel

    The people on this hotel were very friendly , what I liked was that those who cleaned the rooms did not have a specific time to do so, they were always on the lookout for us when we left the room to do their job
