Fantastic place to relax and enjoy the sun and beach

Overall, my family and I enjoyed our stayed at this hotel. All employees BUT the front desk employees were very nice and helpful. This hotel has to definately change the young people working at the front desk, they don't know what they are doing and do not show care for your needs. I had to call several times making the same requests, there was never a scence of urgency.

Cancun trip Mid July 2013

Overall our stay was pretty good. My only complaints was the air conditioning was not good enough in our room. Even though It was cool, the room never cold enough to sleep well. Needed to sleep with no sheets and the fan running high to be moderate comfortable. I did request at the front desk many times that they send someone to fix our ac but never helped. The front desk staff was hit and miss on politeness. We had 2 or 8 phone calls had a rude front desk. However, the wait staff and the room maids were magnificent! I have a peaky 9 year old eater and since she liked the empanadas at the Mexican restaurant, even though it was just appetizer they brought her a plate full. Very nice and thoughtful. They made our dining experience great. Additionally, this all inclusive was really all inclusive, not once did I have to ask for a drink twice, they kept it flowing especially at dinner, even at the buffet. Justino our kids favorite waiter and definitely our since our kids liked them was always very attentive. There are plenty of activities always going on at the hotel, you never really have to leave because there is plenty to do on the property.

Pleasant Family Getaway

The staff were all very helpful and pleasant. The hotel, grounds and beach were beautiful. The rooms could benefit from some touch ups but were comfortable and had great ocean views. Wish their kids program was more consistent and available, but that said my 9 year old still had a wonderful time and enjoyed herself without participating in their kid specific activities.

First All-Inclusive Experience

This was my first all-inclusive resort experience and it exceeded my expectations! They kept the food and alcohol flowing, ALL the employees were fun, friendly, helpful, charismatic, and cater to your every needs! There was a lot of entertainment at the pool, lots of activities in and around the hotel, and it was fun for all ages! We had such a great time, I would definitely recommend this place to my friends!

Great time

The hotel catered to all our needs. When we arrived they had our reservation package all ready for us so the check-in was very quick. We were given a high floor suite that had a great view. The staff was wonderful. The were so friendly and could not have been more helpful and attentive. All the activities around the pool were fun, there was never a dull moment. One suggestion, if you plan on tipping the staff be sure to bring small bills with you as it is very hard to get change from larger bills. We highly recommend this hotel for a wonderful vacation and can't wait to go back.

Birthday Getaway

Not sure where to start. Everything was so fantastic. The hotel was always clean from top to bottom. If there was anything that you needed, the staff would try and accomodate to the best of their ability.So many staff there to cater to the whims of ALL their guests. Pool areas: CUN what a blast. All the drinks you wanted, (bar staff continuously keep those drinks coming), great games, lots of sun and party time. Kiddy pool: great area for kids and quieter for the adults. Meals were very good, much more than I had expected with it being buffet style. Try some of the speciality restaurants for a change. Rooms were cleaned twice a day with turn down at night. See what animal might be waiting on your bed in the evening. Room bar and ref. were always stocked. Room amenities were great. Only thing that we were not happy with was the bed. It was not comfortable at all. Too many aches and pains when getting up in the morning. Maybe we should have had more margareitas before we went to sleep. All the conviences of a 5 star hotel without the cost. I will be booking again with this chain, and will upgrade the room to an ocean view. It is definately worth the few extra dollars.

Excellent vacation

My husband and I stayed at this resort 2 times. We love it ! The staff is very helpful. The room was spotless and staff was taking care of it a couple times a day. Tip helped too. Wi Fi is free. The food was great and there are so many choices . The beach and water are just fabulous! I really enjoyed swimming in an ocean and I could not have enough of it. We tipped as much as we could because all these people are working soooo hard to make our stay fabulous. There are a lot of activities during the day. We took a trip to Chichen Itza ruins. It was a long trip (2.5 hours in one direction), but it was nice. Book the trip when you are booking a vacation. We payed $89 booking in our resort but other tourists payed less than $60 ! I would highly recommend this resort for a great vacation.

The night shows were pretty good. The staff organized transportation to disco clubs (for young people) but they had to come back in their own arrangement.
