Decent hotel. A good family all inclusive.Posted Jun 30, 2015
Hotel staff friendly and pleasant. The grounds are a little too spread out. Small beach. Not a good beach resort. Big pools with Alot of seats. Pools were a little too dirty. All the restaurants had very good food. No swim up bar which would have been nice. No wait staff for the bars. You have to get everything yourself. I wouldn't go back to this resort. But I did enjoy our stay there. I would give it a 3.5 out of five.

Very nice resort! We had a great time!Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: Everybody there is so nice and friendly. Food is awesome, clean.
Cons: Offer pull out couches Add more fans in the open areas and restaurants
Location: Playa del Carmen Xel ha Xcaret Xplor
It wasn't easy looking for a resort for me and my teenage kids, so I decided to go to this resort because it was closer to the activities that we were planning on doing. I didn't want to take my kids to the crazyness of Cancun. The resort is huge, the service is amazing, everybody there is so nice, kind, helpful, happy, very welcoming. The food was amazing all day long, especially in the restaurants for dinner. The pools and other facilities were always clean. The beach was not as "clear" as the ones in Cancun but it was not that bad. The rooms are very nice and clean. I wish they had a pull out sofa. I had to put the two beds together for me to sleep in the middle. The only down part of the resort is the WIFI service. It was extremely hard to Skype home or check my emails. Also, they only provide one access for internet. I heard that you could buy extra access but I didn't do it. Also, the computer room was not working at that time and I couldn't access my emails. In general, I will strongly recommend this resort, clean, close to everything, beautiful, excellent food and service and especially really safe

Nice, big property with friendly staff!Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: It was an overall nice, pleasant experience!
Cons: Rooms will need to be updated soon.
Location: The resort is located a few kilometers north of downtown Playa Del Carmen.
The resort is well maintained, room(s) were clean with no issues.The balcony areas should be sprayed for ants, they were outside, but I did not see any in the room(s). The staff were all very nice, the pools were great and cleaned often. The food was very good and the food and beverage staff were remarkable, with a special shout out to Carlos, Juan and Lizbeth! Due to a storm on the weekend of our arrival, the beach was not usuable due to seaweed and the water was quite dingy, although it cleared up some towards the end of the week.

Wonderful food. Hard workers. Not as personable and friendly as other resorts I've been to.

Nice location close to town.Posted Jun 18, 2015
Pros: The food and the drinks were better other resorts we have been at.The grounds are vary nice and almost jungle like.
Cons: The rooms need updating and more air conditioning. After being in the heat all day by the pool AC in the bar and restaurants would be nice.
Location: Not to far from airport and town is 4 or so miles away.
We found the food to be better than other resorts we have stayed at. They let you go to the better restaurants every night your there and the food was vary good. The resorts rooms are outdated and the beds are vary hard. The rooms were kept vary clean by the staff. The Wi-Fi is weak in most of the resort some place like the lobby worked better. The resort also lacks Air Conditioning in many area's of the resort, the bar, three of the restaurants have no AC. It is also a vary large resort you have to walk or take a tram around the grounds.

This resort was too spread out for my and my 80 year old Mom. I had to enlist a wheelchair from the resort (at a $17.00 cost) to shuttle her around from restaurant to restaurant and pool. The WiFi, which was only free for one device per room and at a cost per device did not work. The resort is pretty run down (rooms, pool area). I thought it was worth what I paid. Not much ...

This is a great hotel. My only complaint would be that the beachfront isn't that great, but that's more nature's fault than theirs. The staff was super helpful and friendly.

Nice hotel, but spread outPosted Jun 11, 2015
The hotel was nice, but half of it was close to the beach and half was 10 minutes away. This wasn't too bad, however when we walked there were golf carts, trucks, and the "train" would go by too and we would have to step off the trail (sometimes right up next to the bushes). This again, isn't the end if the world, just very annoying. Overall, it was a decent stay, food was good, staff was friendly and helpful, etc. The only reason I wouldn't recommend this hotel to a friend is because I have stayed at better places in Playa Del Carmen.

Too far to the beachPosted Jun 9, 2015
Pros: The food was good and the bar drinks were good.
Cons: put fans in the "Black andWhite bars" bathrooms and deodorize the mens room.
The reception staff was rude and not helpful. We stayed for 7 days. The hotel property is too big for our liking. The beach is about ¾ of a mile away. They have little carts to pick up people but either they are full or they don’t come. The pools were pretty good but only 4 feet deep. The bathrooms behind the “Black and White bar” were so HOT and the men's had a bad odor. We were in building 8 and faced the woods (mangroves.) We had the animals that look like they are a cross between a raccoon and a monkey and even had a deer walk through. The bartenders wait staff and cleaning people were wonderful. Our drinks were good, the food was good and our room was always clean with a “towel surprise” on our bed every day. Made me smile

Hotel was good, beach wasn't so great.Posted Jun 8, 2015
The hotel was good, the beach wasn't the best, front desk staff was a bit rude, if you want to use your phone don't bother the wifi is pointless there so leave your phone home. The pools were great very clean and big.
