Below average...

I was hesitant to book this place because of the pool size but ended up getting it since the sister hotel had a fairly nice size pool. This def not a four star hotel in my eyes... More like a 2 star motel. Here are my reasons why: 1. Although we didn't find any cockroaches, room floors were very dusty. 2. Musty smell everywhere including comforters and bedsheets. Beds were small. 3. Pools were horrific. Rust stains everywhere n has this awkward slimy feel like built on soap scum. One of the guests broke out in rashes and hives so it might not be very well chlorinated as well. 4. Food sucked. Well everything except the bread and made to order breakfast omelets. 5. Not that much entertainment. 6. Why wear bracelets? Terrible if you want to tan. Fees if you lose bracelet or towel card. Then again why do we need cards to borrow beach towels. 7. Drinks were too sweet. 8. Asked if we needed reservations for dinner and was told multiple times no. We ended up waiting over an hour the first night. 9. Beach chairs and loungers were worn out and dirty as for the day beds. 10. Why close the swim up bar at 5? The only positive comments I have is that the beach was fairly nice and the hotel was close to downtown. Trust your gut instincts. Do not be fooled.

Worst Hotel I've Ever Stayed Out in Mexico!

This hotel is simply awful. The food was absolutely indelible- it was as if they had certain ingredients around and just used them for food whether they went together of not! We paid for an oceanfront room, but got one facing the street-- that was a first for us in Cancun!! All of the members of the timeshare get ALL the best rooms & there are only 8 rooms with balconies!! It has so many things wrong, I can't possibly list them all. Please think before you book this one! There are soooooooo many nicer hotels in Cancun- don't stay here!! It was the first time in 8 years visiting Mexico that I couldn't wait to leave and go home-- my husband couldn't believe it!! The only thing this pace has going for it is the staff. We loved Adriana at the timeshare group. The sweet girl at the inside bar-- Gabriella (?) was too nice!! The waiters at the pool were great, too!

BORING!

WE HAD VISITED 2 YRS AGO AT A DIFFERENT HOTEL DOWN THE BEACH AND HAD A GREAT TIME IN CANCUN. THIS HOTEL WAS VERY BORING WITH NO AMENITIES EXCEPT A POOL. BEST SUITED FOR A MORE "MATURE" AGED VISITOR. ROOMS WERE MUSTY AND DARK BUT CLEAN. FOOD AND SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. THIS HOTEL IS BEST FOR SLEEPING AND RELAXING. THE HOTEL THAT CAN BE USED NEXT DOOR IS MUCH MORE EXCITING.

DO NOT PURCHASE YOUR TAKE HOME GIFTS FROM THE OUT DOOR VENDORS. GO INSIDE THE MALL ACROSS THE STREET IN THE MALL WHERE THEY CAN BE BOUGHT TONS CHEAPER

Nothing Special, but beach is nice

The beach is great and it's right by the airport, which are the main pros about the property. Here are a couple of cons to be aware of: -- Our room smelled like rotten eggs/sewage. We called, they "fixed" and it still smelled like it. We ended up closing the door to the bathroom so that the room remained decent. -- Food is terrible and I mean terrible. Fruit was nice, but really everything else was poorly made, cold, etc. -- Staff is hit or miss. Some folks were nice, and others were weird. Having traveled to Mexico before, we were aware of the timeshare, aka, "concierge" scheme they try and after several firm "no's" to their hounds, they finally left us alone. -- We did like that it was a smaller hotel rather than the larger properties, so no fighting for beach chairs, etc. Pool is small and it was crowded, but we hung out mostly at the beach. -- Drinks were also terrible (LOL). We just decided that we'll drink at home. Overall, it's okay. Location is nice, food and rooms...not so much. If you keep your expectations low, you'll be fine.

Hop on the bus and take it to the flea market. It's about a $1 ride and they have lots of cute items to bring home for friends and family.

Would not recommend

Staff was not knowledgeable about anything. We were unable to get room service because we were told that we were not members....which I thought we were at an ALL inclusive resort?? VERY VERY loud hotel. We were unable to sleep any of the nights because of people partying and screaming through the halls. I have stayed at other ALL Inclusive resorts in Cancun and did not have this same experience. Would not recommend to anyone

Just okay.....

Positives: staff is very nice overall, pool and beach are fine, although there is no pool bar (there is one at the connecting sister hotel). Rooms are decent. Negative: Rooms with views are designed awkwardly (2-3 windows but they are relatively small), too much furniture...makes room feel smaller. Food is subpar, especially if you are vegetarian. All restuarants seem to serve the same food, just different names or itirations. Bar makes good mixed drinks but alcohol quality is low.

good relaxing vacation

If your looking for corona dont stay here. Staff is excellent and ready to serve you. Most of the food is below average. Dont expect good desserts. Bonaventi restraunt is the best restaraunt. Room service is fantastic but dont order the burger. Tasted horrible and was the size of a piece of taylor ham. Did not have any hotel activities. Was supposed to have bingo everyday but only had it on the day we left.

cancun 2013

It was a great trip over all. Great beach and awesome weather. Friendly staff. Food can be better. Hotel looks beautiful however rooms can definitely use more upgrades. Floor was always wet due to humidity and bathroom had issues (toilet clogging, unpleasant odor) although our family had a great time, we will not be returning to this hotel. Most annoying thing about yhe hotel was constant calls we received in the room from people trying to sell excursions...

Good not great

Overall all service was fantastic. A few individuals stand out, Gaby was an angel, and the lobby bar in general was great. Food and drink was fantastic. Marco Polo service was amazing. Cons: A room wasn't available when we arrived, which is ok we were a little early. We reserved a king bed room and instead got 2 dbls that were small and uncomfortable. Weather wasnt great while there so resorted to a little TV watching. Small tv and very few channels in english. Walls and doors werent heavy/thick so there was a lot of noise from outside the room and a door between our room and the next room . so much noise it was as if there was no door there at all. Luckily there wasnt too much noise during sleeping hours. It was chilly half of our stay at night and even 2 days of the 4 days(upper 60's) we didnt prepare for that but there wasn't anything we could do to warm the room except stay under blankets. Hot showers would have been nice but more often than not the water was barely warm. Apparently more water heating capacity is needed. 33% of the time it was warm enough, 33% barely warm, 30% of the time not warm enough. It didn't seem to matter what time of the day or night either. The last complaint I have is their internet wifi policy. When I originally booked I had read that wifi was included. When we arrived we were told it was almost $10 per day. We didn;t want to spend an additional 40-50 for wifi so we agreed to do the timeshare presentation to get that for free. We have done it before this time they were extremely pushy. We got our wifi and again put off when told it was only good for one device. We had my wifes phone , my phone and our laptop that we would have liked to use in addition to a kindle device for reading at the pool area. It would have cost an extra 30 to 40 dollars a day to do this. so we got it for just 1 device - the laptop so we could use skype to call home Went without our kindle books which we had planned to sit and read by the pool or ocean out in the sun. Unfortunately not much sun and no wifi. Would we go back? Because of the food and service, Yes, If the price was right. We would be more prepared for chilly nights and no wifi.

It can be chilly at night bring something to cover up with for those occasions. Nothing in the room to help with that. Also be prepared to spend a lot for internet access or pre-download everything you need before getting there. Apps, books, etc.
