If you are looking for a romantic getaway, this is the place for you! Let me name a few......Warm turquoise blue oceans to die for, spacious rooms with comfortable beds, excellent food utilizing regional ingredients, and service always with a smile! It is also a must to treat yourself to an organic, authentic Mayan Spa experience! Although the spa services might be considered expensive, it is well worth it! The hotel grounds are magnificent and each room is surrounded by it's natural rainforest habitat.
Hope we get to go back soon!

Such a unique experience in Playa. Felt as though we owned half of the hotel, and only saw a few guests in passing. Probably due to when we traveled, but I can imagine even when the resort is completely booked, it still has a secluded feel. Definitely spring for the Penthouse or larger condos with a roof top terrace. We hung out their often. Lounging on the couches, spending time in the private hot tub and grilling out, was awesome. We weren't on the beach, but had a nice view of the ocean from condo 312.
I'm not sure why other reviewers complained about the breakfast. We thought it was awesome and there were lots of options, at two different locations. Also it wasn't a boring buffet. You choose from a large menu, which is uncommon for a complementary breakfast. You can use your free "breakfast cards" from 8am-2pm. So no more worrying about missing breakfast. Only complaint was the weak, strange coffee. You will want to bring your own roast from home and make it in your room.
The beach was not very nice while we were there, due to sea weed. That's not entirely the hotels fault, though it does seem as though they could do something more to keep it clean. The beach lounger and large bed options were awesome and included at not additional charge.

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at this hotel for our honeymoon. The hotel itself is built in the Mayan Style in beautiful landscaped gardens. The hotel staff were fantastic, they couldn't do enough for you and always with a smile. The restaurant was good with fresh food. The ruins are short 15 minute bicycle ride away as are stunning beaches up the coast. Tulum town is also 15 mins away by bicycle, offering many bars, restaurants and gift shops. There is a huge choice of tours and day trips to the surrounding area - Sian Ka'an is not to be missed, nor Coba Mayan ruins or the various cenotes. Holiday of a lifetime :)
