Amazing!

I came here to relax and unwind on a solo vacation. What a perfect choice! The resort is absolutely beautiful, extremely friendly staff, and great food. There is always something for adults and kids to do. The entertainment team does a wonderful job with the shows and activities. They have everything from karaoke to dance lessons to break dancing and fire dancing shows. By far, NOW Sapphire has been the best vacation experience I've had. I'll be back!

EXCELLENT!

My husband I have been to this resort many times and will continue to return! I have been twice this year already!! The staff that know us always smile and say "welcome home". It's awesome. Everyone is so friendly and accommodating. The ocean front rooms are perfect, if you're in the preferred club. Food is very good. There's something for everyone.

Very nice resort, the staff, accomodations and food was amazing. This was our first trip to Cancun, but we talked to other couples that had been before and stayed at other resorts. They all said that this resort was much better than they had stayed at.

The perfect wedding

The hotel is beautiful, exactly like the photos. We upgraded to preferred and while there was no difference in food or drink, the preferred pool and having a private palapa reserved for us everyday was well worth the money. As long as you arrived by 11am, it was yours for the day. Israel, angel and Ivan are amazing preferred hosts. Carmen and Irene in the lobby remembered our drink preferences without asking. Coco cafe is a real treat! The food was amazing but you do need to order appetizers and soup with your meal to feel satisfied. Use the $10 off preferred coupon to buy lobster at the grill- it was the best I've had and it was huge! And finally, hats off to Anel, the wedding coordinator. Every little detail was taken care of. It was absolutely perfect and carefree. She far exceeded my expectations. They have 2-3 weddings a day and know what they are doing. The wedding team are very professional and first class. We went with the hotel photographer, upgraded after the phot shoot and was pleasantly surprised....I think all 20 of our guests would agree.... Can't think of a bad thing to say.

best vacation

We stayed in this resort 5 yrs ago for our honeymoon, at that time it was named Paradisus and the service was good, location beautiful. This May 2012 we returned with our 2 year old son and it was amazing! The service was better than 5 yrs ago, staff was very friendly and polite. Now we are planning to return next year but with more friends and family. The resort it pricey, but worth it! Its a place were you can relax, away from large crowds and over crowded beaches.

Now Sapphire 7/22/12

This all inclusive was the best I've stayed at. The service was amazing and the staff seemed to really care about your experience. As other reviews stated, the beach could be a little better due to there being a good amount of plant material on the beach and in the water, however the pool was great. Food was overall great- Cibu was our favorite- you have to get the cream of mushroom soup! Very relaxing resort and great live music at night in the lobby. In our opinions, the reviews that criticize the resort seem to indicate that the individuals have high standards for vacation experiences. Seems very materialistic to complain about food selection/option/expectations, wonderful service, beautiful scenery, and such a selfless staff.

Fabulous 5* Resort

Everything we wished for and more. Excellent location, large luxury rooms, attentive and polite staff who could not do enough for you and the wide and varied high class restaurants on offer. Mexican, Mediterranean, Italian, Asian and French and also a Buffet grill. We booked as Preferred guests which gave access to the secluded Adults Only pool with reserved Bali Beds and also a private section on the beach, towels and umbrella and complete unlimited bar service with a smile. The daily newsletter advised you of the vast amount of activities for Adults, Teens and families throughout the day. Even the kayaks, hobbiecats and other watersports were included in the All Inclusive price. The only negative would be the French Restaurant only allowing you a table outside on the terrace if you bought a bottle of wine and he recommended a $58 bottle. Had we opted for a regular table inside they made you wait 45mins - 1hr and you could drink the free All Inclusive wine. Felt a little blackmailed. That said, the other restaurants and Bluewater Grill were fantastic and well worth the money paid. We went on the trip to Chichen Itza (Wonder of the World) and the Ik-Kil Cenote (underground sinkhole) where we swam in the freshwater - booked through Amstar at the hotel. The whole trip was fantastic from booking, to the bus, to the 2 guides. We also swam with dolphins at Dreams Hotel which also gave us time to see Cancun's main strip and shopping malls. Tip-ensure your Airport Transfers are included as we thought ours were and it was an overwhelming and frightening experience of numerous Taxi drivers crowding you for your business then overcharging us at $70 when it should only have cost 450 Pesos which the Hotel arranged for our return. We had the Honeymoon package as it was our Anniversary which gave us a bottle of Champagne, fruit, turndown service and a SPA session which was out of this world. If you want complete relaxation and treated like royalty then this is the place to go.
