Our Opinion

Good 4.5-star resort in Cancun. There are great options with regards to buffet and a la carte items. The staff is friendly and pleasant. There are a lot of daytime activities and excursions available for those wanting to venture outside of the resort. However, there were only a few nightly shows. The only issues that guests experienced were the inconsistent operations of the air conditioning system throughout the resort and rooms. There can be quite a bit of noise near the pool area. This resort is perfect for families or those with young children.

Everything a Family needs on vacation

We just returned from an 8 day Spring Break family vacation. Location is perfect, close to the airport (15 minutes) & on the best beach in Cancun! The food is good and plentiful. Lots of options and something for everyone. The food was warm and the drinks are cold, the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are spacious and clean. The wait staff & entertainment staff is excellent, always involving guests, kids and adults a like, with plenty of activities all day and night! Thank you Jonny, Monica, Daniel, Roger, CeCi and many more to numerous to name! Lots of family fun from nightly shows, daily games, fun pools and a beautiful beach! What more can you ask for on vacation?

Enjoyed My Time

I liked this place. I got the package through Expedia. The hotel is located on the beach. Several options for dining. Every staff spoke English, broken, but were able to answer all my questions. Very friendly. The family room was very clean. Fresh towels and face cloths each day, no hand towels. The beach has a lifeguard and a security person onsite. Each evening there is entertainment. Take the R2 bus, for 10 pesos, go to WalMart (for the experience) and get bottled water. Go to Isla Mujeres, it's 440 pesos return on the boat. I enjoyed the people and staff here. Finally, I didn't spend time in the room, except for sleeping, so internet in the room wasn't an issue. Use the wifi in the lobby for free. Take earplugs-lots of crying babies early in the morning!

Spring break vacation

Good: beach is great (same goes for most hotels in the area), good looks of the hotel architecture, waiters and help desk staff.Bad: room finish are poor as well as maintenance, details everywhere you look, paint, floor tiles, bath, jacuzzi, it looks as if the exceeded budget as the construction when on and they had to cut on materials and labor. Also managers forgot that experiences are more important at the end, this is the only place where they have billed us for 1 missing towel card and 1 room card. Of course where are coming back to the other options in town that care more about customer satisfaction. Good vacation but hotel was negative.

Budget Friendly Family Resort

A budget friendly family resort with all amenities located closely together. If I were coming without young children, I would likely try a different location; but this resort really is perfect for our young family. The staff their are especially fantastic. We received excellent service from Wilberto, Oscar, and Louis in the buffet area.

Great Resort for Adults and Families!

Myself, my mom and my friend went on vacation for my 50th Birthday. We had a wonder time and want to do this again. We enjoyed having families around us during our vacation. However, if we wanted to be with adults only the resort has adult only areas available. The overall atmosphere of the resort is comfortable, clean, relaxing and fun. The food, drinks, activities, entertainment and service we received were excellent! We especially enjoyed "La Maison de Michelle" Restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious 5 course meal in an elegant atmosphere. The service provided by Cristian our waiter was superior. The manager, Angel and hostess, Wendy, helped to make sure your visit was top notch. You have to ask Cristian for a Mayan Coffee while visiting "La Maison de Michelle". It is not only delicious but an entertaining show. The shows at the resort were wonderful! You laughed, enjoyed beautiful costumes and dancing. You are walking distance to the El Rey ruins and the Maya Cancun Museum. 20 pesos (1 USD dollar) bus ride will take you to activities, shopping and downtown cancun, if you have time to venture. The resort is well priced!
