Our Opinion

A great resort. Newly renovated rooms are very spacious, and the staff will cater to your requests to ensure that you are comfortable. The majority of food served in this resort is Mexican cuisine, and it has an OK variety of alcohol on the shelf. This is a resort suited for those who want to venture away from the resort facilities and enjoy the beach and wildlife that surrounds it.


Overview

Explore the natural wonders of the Mayan Riviera from this ideally situated all-inclusive. Golf at the nearby Puerto Aventuras course or visit the natural aquarium of Xel-Ha and the ancient ruins of Tulum. After your outings, relax under the giant palapa roof of the beachside main restaurant and admire the beautiful ocean view. Families appreciate the spacious accommodations, fun Kids' Club, kilometre-long white sandy beach and calm reef-protected waters.

Location: Beachfront, 20 min to Playa del Carmen, 60 min from the airport.

  • Bruce M :
Great beach

Very nice beach, great snorkeling, good service, and food was very good. Rooms are nice but smallish. I've never seen an entire crew working to clean up seaweed everyday in order to keep beach clean. We saw turtles and stingrays not far from shore.

Truly Amazing

Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of the week spent here earlier this month. Focused on the Yoga,Meditation and Pilates classes as activities. The quality of instruction and knowledge base was exceptional. Thank you to Hiram, Claudio, Eliu and Beatriz for your caring and individualized teachings. Great snorkelling, beach, food, comfortable beds and very friendly, helpful employees. A relaxing and healing experience. Will definitely return.

Relaxation and friendly service

Visited ABBWR for the 2nd time and again had a lovely time. It's a long flight from the UK but as soon as you step into your room you start to unwind especially with the great view. We had a penthouse room again as it suits what we want. We made use of the roof terrace and jacuzzi every day after we left the beach. It's very private and so relaxing sitting in the hot tub with a beer watching the waves. We like the room which is large, open plan and contemporary in decor. The maid service is good and I like that you get slippers and a robe. The beach is why we were there and doesn't disappoint. The snorkelling is good. I took my short fins and there was no issue with using these. There are lots of different fish and of course the turtles. So much better to be able to snorkel from the beach near your hotel than have to book on a tour. It also meant you could go any time you wanted. I would advise a rash vest as the sun is strong and it is easy to get carried away snorkelling and realise you have spent over an hour out in the sun. We had requested block 3 for our room and spent most of our time on the beach in front of this block when not snorkelling. It is quieter than the area outside block 1 and 2 and there were always beds available so you don't need to play the towel game early morning. Service from the beach waitresses was very good. Loved the fresh fruit and vegetables she would bring out everyday. We had lunch at the sushi bar most days. Again service by the barman and waitresses was excellent. Liliana also made excellent sushi always with a smile.The sushi seemed a lot more popular than last year and there was always a queue. I would also say there seemed to be more children than last year. The pool always seemed full of inflatables and in the evening there were a lot of children in the bar area until about 9pm. The food (apart from the pizzas) is good. We ate in the a la carte restaurants more than the buffet and enjoyed the gourmet the most. Excellent service in these restaurants including the hostesses who will come and find you in the bar when your table is ready. Overall we had a lovely holiday. All the staff are friendly and service is excellent. I would recommend it to couples wanting a relaxing beach holiday.

Amazing! Fantastic kids club

Just returned from the beautiful ABBWR. Hotel is lovely and staff work so hard to keep the place immaculate. Beach is stunning and snorkelling is great!A big thank you to Mariel and the kids club. My daughters 5 and 10 spent so much time with kids club and were very sad to leave. Lots of activities to keep the children occupied and done lovely homemade things to bring home. Kids club included films, games, beach play, pool play, mini disco, piñata making and breaking, kids club dinners with arts and crafts. The team made my children's holiday the best one yet! Thank you so much. Can't wait to return 😊
