Excellent resort with amazing amenities and service
We loved the professional, prompt, and joyful staff. They are what make a great and pleasant stay. Everything was always clean and organized. They have staff on location around the spot always keeping everything perfect.
Didn’t get to stay long enough! We will be back for sure.
The resort layout and grounds was beautiful, the service was impeccable, the spa is wonderful.
The room could have been cleaner and it was difficult to get in the restaurants for dinner.
Excellent Adult-Only Resort
The resort was great for relaxing and unwinding! My wife and I traveled with another couple. Rave reviews all around. Resort is not massive as many resorts in the area are that they require transportation to even get to dinner or go to the beach. Everything was within short walking distance. The beach though public was amazing primarily because of the ability to snorkel with turtles just a few yards off shore. There are also little clumps of reef you can see exotic fish at. You do get groups or snorkel tours but it does not affect the beach or the enjoyment. The resort is very peaceful. Even the activities pool always has soft island music and not any thumping boom boom music. There are 3 total pools and the serene one is like a peaceful oasis of silence. Service was great. Couple of bars right by main pool one being a swim-up. Basic food service also available right at the pool. And 2 restaurants about 50 feet away from main pool. Excellent entertainment team (Felix, Karen, Jonas, Hamlet, Guadalupe and Laura to name a few) with a good amount of activities ranging from water polo, beach volleyball, pool basketball and volleyball, etc. Beach is just a few steps away from main pool. Enjoyed the fact you dont need bracelets or room key exchanges to get towels. You grab or ask for all the towels you need. Simple as that. Drinks were great which included good liquors such as Johnny Walker Black, 1800 Anejo Tequila, Bacardi, Herradura, Flor De Cana, and more. Restaurants were also top notch. There's Japanese, Italian, Mexican, French, Steakhouse and a seafood. Note there is no dinner buffet. Only breakfast and lunch. Kinda missed a dinner buffet for when we got the munchies. But all the restaurant food was for the most part top notch. Steaks, seafood, pasta, etc. all done very well. Desserts were hit or miss though. So we each just ordered 2 of what kind of looked good and you'd at least get one you liked. They are very small too. Evening shows were great too. Resort is close to Xel-Ha and Tulum ruins which we visited. They were great! Playa del Carmen is a $30 taxi ride each way if you want to visit. Would definitely stay here again!
We agreed to go to the time-share presentation for $100 credit. DONT DO IT!!! Its high pressure and the last salesperson got nasty. Really left a bad taste in our mouth. Not worth the credit nor the supposed 2 free nights at another resort. Wish there was an evening buffet when you just dont feel like doing the dinner restaurant thing or youre tired or not feeling well.
Excellent staff and food
The staff were all phenomenal. Abraham (waiter by pool) had everyone's drink full and was so friendly! He knew your drink orders after the first day and made awesome drink suggestions. Rene, Halmet, Jonas, Laura, Felix, and Miguel all were amazing on the entertainment team. Playing volleyball and the afternoon games by the pool had to be one of our highlights of the trip. They organized some amazing shows at the entertainment theater at night as well.
There are a lot of mosquitos in this area. We had to cover ourselves in big spray every night and still would manage to get bitten. The resort would spray a heavy fog every morning and evening to help keep the mosquitos away. The spray was not pleasant and left a lingering fog in the air for 20 minutes or so that we had to breathe.
