3/5 Okay

Traveled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service
This resort is very centered around trying to sale you time shares and focuses your stay around the royal/first club members. The buffet was not good. The positives are; it’s a beautiful resort. So much wildlife and gorgeous property to see. The room’s are okay. We weren’t able to use the balcony due to the bugs. The front desk/check-In personal were very rude. And it seemed that way to most everyone checking in. The staff members through out the property were amazing and very eager to help! —also avoid the “information” desk at the entrance to every building as they are only trying to sale your a time share and will ask for $20 dollars for a presentation and will say that they are offering discounts for different excursions, when in reality it’s the same discount they offer when you book directly with the excursion company. Overall our trip was okay but would not stay here again.

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Booked a Jr. Suite..it stated on my reservation and welcome letter that we would be receiving chocolate covered strawberries and a continental breakfast (which I did reserve with my bldg concierge and never, ever happened…he told me I needed to call and replied you should follow up on that since I asked you to make those reservations and don’t feel that I should have to make that call) I guess he never did because never received any of those things promised!!!! Also Housekeeping needs to pay more attention to dispensers in the bathroom, ours was almost empty when we got there and no bedding for the sofa bed until I called to have them set it up!!!

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Place was clean and close to XCARET park food was okay. I thought I was going to have a great experience until I started to check in. At the beginning everyone was super nice, until I realized that they were trying to get me to go to their vacation club presentation. I just wanted to have peaceful time with my family but I keep been harassed by the staff, there were times I had to decline 3 or 4 times a Day. The key to enter our room had to be reseted 4 of the 5 days we were there which made us waist about an hour every time. They have good restaurants “if you are able to get in” we were told no reservations needed, so we had to stand online to try to get in, and then some people just show up with reservation and get in. They say it is all intrusive, but room services are not. Their best restaurant by the beach has a beautiful view. Too bad its always close for dinner because of events and weddings. Very stressful to navigate through the property.

Do yourself a favor and save your money by avoiding this place. Look elsewhere. Definitely wasn’t worth it. Food was the absolute worst. Night clubs are closed. Drinks are watered down. The list goes on and on.

Property grounds were big and beautiful and easily to get to whether going to the beach or lobby,the staff was very friendly and helpful.there's free shuttles if you don't want to walk,food was not bad but also not great,my biggest problem with the Property was that the rooms were not soundproof, you can easily hear people above you and next to you, that would be the only reason why I would not visit this resort again.
