Our Opinion

Great adults-only resort. There are typical buffet items and a variety of a la carte items to choose from. While the resort caters to adults-only clients, parts of the beach have a tendency to get a little noisy, due to the animation team.


Overview

Located on beautiful Xpu-Ha Beach, this deluxe adults-only resort provides a romantic setting with a peaceful atmosphere. Surrounded by native jungle trees, local plants, mangroves and cenotes - natural underground springs, native to the Mayan Coast.

Location: On Xpu-Ha Beach in the Mayan Riviera, between Cancun and Tulum, 15 min from Playa del Carmen, 45 min from the airport, close to the archeological sites of Coba & Tulum.


Highlights
  • Nice pool area with Balinese beds
  • Large beautiful beach 
  • Spacious rooms with furnished balconies
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Surrounded by jungle and natural cenotes
  • Awarded TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews

Still A Very Nice Destination!

We had been to this resort about 10 years ago. It has had some wonderful improvements since our last visit. The Privilege level of service has been added since then, and basically gets you a redecorated room and an additional restaurant to dine at called Bloved. The food we had at Bloved was very good, and very contemporary. Food at the Italian and the lunch buffet by the pool were all good too. Due to rain one evening we missed out at the Tapas restaurant. Breakfast at the main buffet in the lobby is standard with selections for all nationalities. So, don't worry about the food.The pool here is very nice. It is very clean and large enough for all guests - never seemed crowded.The star of this resort is the beach. It is one of the most beautiful on the Yucatan Coast. The photos posted of it do not do it justice.Also, it is an "only adult" resort - so it is fairly calm, and caters to couples not partying.Mostly Americans and Italians here, but also folks from all over. European style sunbathing and swimwear will be seen.They have a sales staff that is marketing an Exclusive Traveler Club. They keep it fairly low key, but they may approach you about it. We used USA Transfers to get there from the Airport. Great operators. Fair prices.It is about an hour drive from the Airport.We had a great stay, and we have no complaints. We plan to go back as soon as we can!

October 2017 Stay

This was our second visit to CRT and it was even better than the first visit!! Property was very clean and well taken care of. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. The beach was AMAZING!! Sarai went out of her way to make sure we had fresh drinks at all times while on the beach. BLoved, Royal Grill, Toscano as well as the buffets were all phenomenal! We never had a meal we didn't like. The spa was very clean and well organized. Had one of the best relaxation massages ever! Will definitely be visiting again in the future!!

General Comments

In general, we had a good stay in the hotel. The staff of the BeLove restaurant was very good. However, we have some comments (that explain why we do not qualify with "excellent"):- When we checked-in, the person at the front desk (Angel) offered the Privilege upgrade for USD45 per person, per night. When we were hesitating, he suddenly said that he could offer for the same price a Honey Moon Suite. We later found out (when we were checking out) that the actual price was USD35. This was very dishonest, and made lost the trust in the Hotel.- Poor quality of bed, pillows and sheets.- Small rooms. The honey moon suite was very regular; nothing special. - Standard quality of alcohol. When you pay an "upgrade" you would expect better quality of alcohol. Something like what is offered to "Exclusive Guest" (who, by the way, for the estimated cost of a membership, should also receive something of better quality). For the price you pay, the hotel could offer much more.

  • Stacy C :
Great Experience

We stayed here in Sept. of this year for our honeymoon. The Place is great.Good: First most of the excursions that we went on were near by. We didn't have to travel 45 minutes like we would have done if we were in Cancun. The staff was great. All the staff was very friendly and answered our questions as best they could or they sent us to someone who could. Drinks: The drinks flowed constantly, the wait staff kept a timely schedule and kept our drinks refilled. We didn't tip at the beginning and made sure we tipped everybody on the last day we were there. Food: Food is good, not 5 star but we didn't pay 5 star prices. Very well worth the value. Beach: The beach is very nice and you can snorkel right on the beach. You can check out the gear right on the beach on the hut on the left.Rooms: The rooms were nice and they kept the fridge stocked every day. We would take the water, drinks and snacks with us on our excursions. The air conditioner worked great. the room was made nicely every day and the turn down service was done every evening. Showers were good and very powerful not a trickle.Not So Good: Timeshare selling really turned me off when I was there. We didn't wan't to buy any timeshare and sometimes felt like walking around the ones who were pushing this. Once they got it into their heads that we were not going to buy the selling stopped so that was a bonus. The hotel does not have to go cups so take a reusable cup like a yeti type cup with you. It keeps your drinks colder longer and if you want to take some coffee along for the morning excursion it's well worth it.Overall we had a tremendous visit. We would definitely stay there again.

Wonderful resort which met all expectations

We had a late arrival to our hotel, but the check-in assistant helped speed things up and was friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was very spacious with all the amenities we needed. The room was serviced early each morning and the housekeeping team did a wonderful job in supplying enough towels. There are many restaurants on the property and we tried them all out. The food was always tasty and diverse. The setting and location of the resort is perfect. The beaches are white and powdery and always clean. All the staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. The spa experience is worth a visit.
