Our Opinion

A great luxury resort with plenty of things to offer. The resort is incredibly large, so this would be a good resort for those who don't mind a little walking, as shuttle service is only offered for premium travelers. The rooms are modern, elegant and well maintained. While the beach veers from the usual resort (it's not the white, soft and sandy beaches), the shores are teeming with wildlife. There are plenty of quality buffet items, and the a la carte restaurants are also very tasty. Overall, it's a great resort option for those staying in the Riviera Maya.


Overview
This luxuriously modern hotel offers 456 spacious and elegantly appointed junior suites in ten 3-storey buildings surrounded by lush vegetation.

Location: Located directly on the beach, approximately 34 km from Playa del Carmen and 92 km from the Cancun airport.

Beach holiday

Lovely hotel. Communal areas very clean. Friendly helpful staff Some ground floor rooms smell a bit musty. We stayed in a first floor room lovely room with a nice view. Choice of restaurants which you can easily book through your concierge. Poolside could get quite noisy. It didn't bother us as we are beach people. Enjoyed our stay

Great Family Environment

I highly recommend this hotel to families. My husband, my Mom, and I went and it was a resort populated by many families, and lots of extended families. It seemed there was plenty for everyone to do. We stayed in Makul (I think that was the name of our building) and it had a pool right outside which was one of three on the premises. The reef is terrific with the fish swimming right up - so you can snorkel on the property if you want and get to see lots. It's a large property so plenty of walking which I personally enjoyed. It has a spa and dolphins on the premises. I am not a fan of dolphins in captivity and it is in overt abundance everywhere in Riviera Maya. But it's a personal choice. I would recommend this hotel - make sure you book your a la cartes the day you get there or the next morning. The Thai restaurant had delightful food and I've never eaten Thai food, not really knowing what to order, so this was a great introduction. And when it says it's spicy - it is. When we needed something in our room, we had it right away. If you can learn some Spanish before going, it would be helpful otherwise you need to communicate through your concierge in order to get anything from housekeeping. And it is far more respectful to visit a country when you've attempted to pick up at least some basics of their native tongue. Oh and take pesos! The resort doesn't accept American. Way better everywhere, on and off resort, to have pesos rather than American money. Plus, it's more advantageous as a Canadian to get pesos. We didn't check the exchange coming into the country at the airport but leaving it took 13 pesos to get a Canadian dollar. One other thing - we've never been to this part of Mexico and we enjoyed it. But we aren't really resort people and this part of the world just seems to be one resort after another all strung together with access to any real Mexican community entirely dependent on obtaining transportation or doing a tour. And the hotel room was quite nicely appointed, large for just one or two people so a great environment all-in-all.

Not 5 Star Hotel but definitively good enough if you get a good deal!

Love the fact that you have nice nature with lots of wild life at the resort. It is a big resort which will give you a nice variation, they could definitely arrange more shuttles in the evening when you have tired kids but it's not a deal breaker. The mini club was a massive disappointment as it is mostly for really young children (our kids are 5, 7 and 10). There is nothing for older kids except the crazy games at the pool. Lazy river and beach (lots of fish and turtles so great for snorkelling) is great. They offer both noisy fun pools and relaxing pools which was good. Food could definitely be improved as the variation and quality is not good enough if you are staying for 2 weeks. I love Corona and was looking forward to enjoying them on the beach but the hotel only offered one kind of beer which was frustrating.I would recommend going to Coba, Tulumn, Playa del Carmen and Xcaret for culture and true Mexico experience. Visit Cenotes and Maya villages. The Maya experience evening at the hotel is worth booking too. Swimming with dolphins was great! Take advantage of the concierges. Josef that sells tours in the lobby's is great and is happy to help too!One thing that was disappointing was the price of taxis which was very high. As most hotels are all inclusive on the coast guest tend to stay at the resort for their whole holiday which is not helping the locals. Unfortunately we did this a lot more then we would have if there would have been a shuttle to Tulumn and Playa del Carmen. Being a family of 5 a return taxi to Playa del Carmen was £55 and even more to Tulumn which we were happy to spend once but not more. Playa del Carmen was great for restaurants and shopping and I wished we would have had more time there. Tulumn has Turtle Bay where you can snorkel with turtles and a lagoon. Also a beautiful beach next to temples. We are really happy with our experience and will definitely return to Riviera Maya and Mexico but not likely to the same hotel. Mainly due to the food and the kids clubs.

Great Holiday,Amazing Hotel,Lovely Food & the Best Kids Club and Excellent Staff

We just had a 2 week holiday here, which we all enjoyed thoroughly! (2 adults & 1 Child,7yrs)Cannot fault anything about this hotel complex, there is so much to do - daytime & night time entertainment. Or relax by 1 of the 3 swimming pools or on the private beach.All the staff were very friendly and helpful but a few really went the extra mile. (Edwin,Vanessa & Alied - Concierge and the Kids Club staff - Karina, Yana, Fernanda & Itzel)Room was a great size, very clean, mini bar re-stocked dailyFood was lovely, amazing choice in the buffet, also a great selection of la carte restaurants

great hotel and great staff

This was my second trip back to this hotel and it definitely has held up well (last trip was 7 years ago). We were traveling as a group of five people (2 couples and a single). First the check in was great. they even tried to move all of us so we were close together. Overall, I would highly recommend this resort.Staff: The staff were very friendly and spoke the most English of all of the resorts I have ever been to. Carlos and Samy and the pool bar were great! Overall very helpful and attentive. The activities staff were also great. Got people involved without being pushy. There is a time share type program at this resort so just be aware. They weren't pushy about it but did offer us some free activities in exchange for a short presentation on our second day.Rooms: Our room was on the main floor and was nice. The TV could use an upgrade but hey, it's not a priority! It would be nice to have small water bottles in the rooms and not just the large ones they provide. You may not want a room near the concierge desk if you sleep in as they can be busy and noisy in the mornings,Grounds: The hotel is well maintained and very clean. It is very large (spread out) so be prepared for some walking. There are shuttles running if you need. Beach: The beach is small but there are lots of chairs and more than enough water. It is very secluded which means no vendors on the beach but if you like a nice long beach to walk on, this may not be the hotel for you. On the plus side, the rock outcrops offer snorkeling opportunities right off the beach.Pools: There are three pools and they never felt crowded. We spent most of our time at one of the pool bars. The lazy river is a great addition to the resort but they could use more tubes. They have a kids club where you can leave your kids but no kids pool per say. As people traveling without kids, we found that the kids around the pool could be very noisy and disruptive to our relaxation. I think one of the three pools should be designated as adult only to keep all travelers happy.Food: The buffets offered lots of choice and the food was very good overall. Pirate night had lots of great seafood. We went to 3 a la cartes (Brazilian, Thai, and steakhouse). All three were excellent and you felt like special care was taken to make these places special and not just another version of the buffet. If you like coffee, the coffee house is second to none. Lattes to put Starbucks to shame. Don't miss it.Activities: We took the bike tour and it was informative and interesting. We also played some of the poolside games and went to the theater a few nights. The sky bar is a great place to spend our evening and has live entertainment most nights. We did not go to the spa.
