Never again

Posted Aug 29, 2014
The hotel itself is very nice, nice size room, landscaping beautiful and gorgeous beach. Food at buffett was good but did not try any restaurants. The nightly shows were very good. The hotel is very big and extremely short staffed. Many times we had to get our own drinks during meals and their were nights that they did not have any glasses to do even that so we ended up eating without drinks. There is hardly any entertainment throughout the day especially for kids. Did not get to know any of the workers as they were not that friendly and most of them did not seem happy to be there. Overall, my family and I will never stay at another Princess Hotel again. We made this vacation fun by ourselves. I recommend Iberostar Resorts as we stayed there and they are the best so far. Also, spoke with other guest who said purse stolen and they didn't care to help her, would not even let her see the video, they also could not locate her suitcase for a while. Another guest said items stolen from beach bag by the pool.

Everything I expected!

Posted Aug 25, 2014
We stayed for 5 nights and 6 days and I loved every minute of it! The swim up room is what got me to stay there and it was not a disappointment, it was perfect! We happened to be at the end of the grand yucutan building and we practically had a private pool. The rooms were wonderful but for me it was all about being able to walk outside and straight into the pool. The staff is so impressive the way they hustle and make the place spotless. They were all so polite and happy as well. Food was good but not great. It's what I expected though. Comparable to an all inclusive cruise line buffet and restaurants.

Nice hotel, terrible concierge service

Posted Aug 23, 2014
My sister in law broke her wrist and when we asked concierge for assistance they weren't helpful at all. They would not even give her a pain killer without getting paid for first. Pool animation needs major improvement, hotel we'll kept. This is my second time at hotel but I will not come back. By the way hotel staff can and should be a little more friendly

Huge resort

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Overall the resort is very good and is basically like a small town with everything in it. The beach is excellent and you can really walk deep into ocean. The facilities are excellent. The only complaint I will have is about the food in the so called Theme Reataurants. Mama Mia had the worst Italian food that I ever had and the La fondue was just all right.Meso definitely had good ambience and food. Also the lunch buffet was same everyday with little change. The ocean water is definitely excellent and kids enjoy it a lot. The hotel staff is very good and polite. The pools very excellent.

Beautiful hotel

Posted Aug 23, 2014
My biggest complaints: wireless is terrible and floors in room are VERY slippery when wet. Over all it's fantastic and I would absolutely stay there again.

Decent not spectacular

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: the front desk staff were all very nice and accommodating
Cons: the restaurant temperature food quality
Location: xcaret chichen itza tolum downtown playa
The resort was beautiful. My issues were the restaurants. 2 of our 3 dinners were in the restaurants with no AC! It wasn't very pleasant to be sweating in long pants while eating dinner, a time that should be relaxing and enjoyable. The seafood restaurant was disappointing as well, our orders were incorrect twice with the appetizer and dessert. The lobster bisque was watery with no taste, fish was very salty and it was difficult to converse with our server as her english was quite limited and didn't ask for clarification, just went with what she thought we asked for. In one of the buffets our server (can't remember his name) forgot several times to bring our drinks after reminding him a few times over the span of 15 minutes. With the pool bars it would be nice if they were open later.

Beautiful hotel on the beach with friendly staff.

Posted Aug 19, 2014
The only issue we had on this trip was our check in. Due to our flight we were a whole 12 hours late to we didn't check in until 1 am. The man who helped us was not so helpful and gave us rooms that were far from each other. He did nothing to move us closer together and had attitude the whole time. Other than that everyone else was super helpful and went above and beyond to make our vacation an awesome one. This was our 3rd year there and I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family.
