You get what you pay for

We stayed here for 5 days. Probably my least favorite hotel we have ever stayed at - but it was also the cheapest. Food, drink, grounds, and beach were great. The rooms down right sucked. I am not picky at all when it comes to beds, but the beds here were so uncomfortable with their airplane pillows it was impossible to sleep. However, we didn't come to Mexico to spend time in the room, so outside of that, it was a good trip and value.

FRIENDS GETAWAY

Hotel was very good for the money. Hardworking Staff. Massage at the Spa was great, the only little inconvenience was bathroom shower door was only half a door, so water spills out onto the floor. Hotel is steps away to gorgeous beach. Food was very good. Would go again in a heart beat.

Great, easy, cheap getaway!

I loved this resoirt. For the money you are paying, it was great! We went to one restaurant on the resort each night (Don Diego was our favorite). Delicious food and easy accessibility to drinks! Plenty of lounge chairs around the pool and around the beach. The staff could not have been nicer. It isnt a 5-star resort or anything so you need to keep that in mind. The rooms were clean and decent (but you shouldnt spend too much time in there anyways). The beds were not super comfy but that is forgivable. It called for rain everyday we were there and it rained everyday but only for an hour or two (except one day it rained the whole time). It didnt ruin the trip for us. I would recommend this to other people as well as I will be going back here in the future!

Great for the value, but can improve

We got a great value for this hotel through this website. You are 15 minutes away from "x" parks. Coming from someone who stayed in Cancun this location is much better and allows you to drive. Considering it is all-inclusive, it was nice to have food available at all hours, as well as drinks. Areas of improvement: the pool closes at 8pm. This is ridiculous considering you are coming to swim and be outside. Secondly, there is no room service readily available. You need to get food from the snack bar and take it to your room. Lastly, you need to make restaurant reservations well in advance to be able to make it to a restaurant. Again, comparing my last all-inclusive experience where you can walk into a restaurant as soon as you are hungry (or several if you choose), I thought it was inconvenient to have to schedule my reservations a week in advance, this even caused me to miss 2 of the 3 allowed restaurant appointments (appointments based on length of stay) due to the changes in my plans over the week.

It's convenient to drive since most things are very close. Ahkumal is an amazing beach where you can swim with turtles all year long!

Not a typical hotel

The staff wasn't out to pamper the guest. No room service was a big upset. Room cleanliness was also not the greatest. No wifi in the rooms either.

Great spot for families

My kids and I had a terrific time at this resort. They have so many activities and almost all of them are included! We enjoyed the show every night, the activities by the pool and the non-motorized water sports. The staff was amazing and went out of the way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The rooms were clean and the housekeeping staff was great. The food at La Terazza was good, but got a bit redundant after a week stay and it would be nice if the restaurant was air conditioned. Other than that, the trip was amazing. The resort is beautiful and the ocean is absolutely breathtaking.
