Located next to the marina, it's got a beautiful view.
Small, but clean pool, plus a natural pool/tiny beach with sand, with all kinds of reef fish swimming in and out. Awesome!
All 6 rooms face the water. Private terrace, with hammock.
Hard to find, affordable stay in Puerto Aventuras.
Surrounded by mansions and yachts.
You won't get rude neighbors.
Everybody it's cool, and ready to help.
Definitely coming back.

Stayed at the Zen resort. Great welcoming environment. Relaxing. pampered. Spa too expensive for what they offer, though. Excellent restaurants, although food somewhat scant in some of them (Piaff and, De Autor). Quality of drinks intermediate. Beaches resorts with excellent infinity pool and wet bar. Azul and Lucca best places to eat. Watch out at Piaf restaurant with sommelier trying to have you choose from an expensive list of wines not included in the "all inclusive". "All inclusive" should also include spa serpvices for more moderate prices or a try for free. Quality of "de la casa" wines and Caba (champagne) pretty low.
Overall great experience for reconnecting with significant other. Very satisfactory place to spend a week.

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!

"Lots of character, wonderful beach, great location"
This place was great! The grounds were beautifully kept. The whole place had a lot of character; the palapas you stay in are quaint (not fancy or ornate, but simply decorated and constructed). The food was delicious, and I loved having two meals a day provided. It made me feel like I wasn't constantly taking out my wallet to pay for the essentials, but still nudged you away from the restaurant for your third meal. The food service staff was so warm that we really missed them after we left. The beach was exactly what I was hoping for; the water is numerous shades of inviting blue and there was nothing in the sea to make you think twice about jumping in (I never stepped on anything icky or sharp, and never saw a jellyfish or anything else scary).

Great hotel, on the beach with a great staff and front desk. When we arrived our room was on the 2nd floor. The next morning I asked if I could change to a ground floor room if available, and they found one and let us change rooms, no problem. Lido restaurant and tiki bar on the beach, great service there too. We ate breakfast every morning on the beach. Can't wait to go back.

This hotel is handy to the beach and 5th avenue. Maeve the receptionist was amazing as we're all of the staff. They really made you feel welcome.
The rooms were spacious although the water pressure was a little lacking for me (I admit to being a shower snob!)
I would definitely return to this hotel over any of the all inclusive hotels I've stayed at.

Really great value. Beautiful hotel with a cool jungle/forest interior and the rooms surrounding it. Sam and the rest of the staff were really friendly and nice. Room was comfortable. Hotel is super close to the main strip and also off the main strip if you want to walk around a different style of area. Don't go expecting the Four Seasons, but certainly is a great place to stay.
