Fantastic location,

We went for 4 days, the location is great but the hotel needs maintenance, the staff was nice, we feel that they did everything to make us feel like at home, we love the private beach, we did kayaking, the downside was the Jacuzzi was off and the spa was closed, the mexican dinner and the italian were the best as far as the food selection is and if you like the wine as for the caverneg savignon........... if you lokking for a nice getaway pick this place, its far away from any town, perhaps the hotel managment could do more to create activities for the guest.

Private Beach within the hotel is great, make sure you ask about it, take the tour and bring your snorkel gear, white sand, perfect beach, clear water, fresh fruit and drinks................... good stuff =] Make sure you ask to be given a room on building 10 or 11 those are the best location... trust me

the bad and the really ugly

Extremely dissappointing: there is NO OCEANVIEW as advertised. The hotel is located on a bay and the beach is black muddy sand. It offered the cheapest liquor we have ever tasted and the variety was limited, plus they kept on running out of dark rum. There was NO SEAFOOD BUFFET (shrimp and lobster) as advertised. There is absolutely NO Comparison to the trips and all-inclusive hotels we have stayed at in Cancun.

Budget accomodations for an all-inclusiv

The hotel was adequate, food was edible but nothing special. The majority of the staff was eager to make our stay enjoyable. If you are the type that can sit on the beach, do a few tours and enjoy yourself, great. For us the location was too far away from the parks we wanted to visit and therefore we had to do a tremendous amount of driving to get to what we wanted to see.

I booked tours on-line ahead of time, but I would have made better choices if I had waited until I got to the hotel and gotten more information about the attractions. That being said, the pre-booked tours were well organized and punctual with great guides.

Just OK

The customer service at this hotel was lacking. I've been at other all inclusive resorts and the entire staff does everything they can to make sure you are happy. Here people did not seem to care if the guests was enjoying themselves. There were man days we were unable to get towels because the hotel was out. How can a hotel be out of towels when they know how many guests that they have staying with them?

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Don't book side trips until arriving at the hotel. I booked a zip line tour[...] with Grayline tours. Turns out that company doe not even pick you up from this hotel to take you on the tour. I would have had to pay an additional $140 in taxi fees to get to the pick up location. That's more than I even paid for the tour! Needless to say $120 down the tubes.

Fair

Overall fair! They have the ability to make it better in terms of food selection and updated rooms to include basic stuff up to the standar of the hotel (ex. an alarming clock, coffee power). The entertaiment staff was also weak.

"Terrible place for a business trip"

Not a very friendly enviroment for the business traveler. They sell you internet service but don't tell you that it does not work. They have a business center with three computers that also did not have access to the internet. Those same computers are so old that they still use USB1 so even if they had internet access I would not have been able to hook up my USB2 thunb drive.
