Stayed at this resort March 25th-April 1st. We have stayed at several all-inclusives in many countries(our 4th in Mexico) and it is by far the best yet! The people were all so very nice the resort was very modern, yet had the carribean flare. It was clean the beach was never ending, the food was the best yet. Mike’s coffee shop was the great,there was a sport’s bar that opened at 10p.m. with great wings, malts, fries, etc. I liked it because it wasn’t so big you had to ride a tram or golf cart to get back to your room. Of course a couple of things they could improve on was more chairs at the beach, more help at the bars. It was also spring break one of the busiest times. They had so many comfy places to just sit and relax. Nothing is perfect but as far as I’m concerned this was the closest your going to get!!!
Cooler cups keep your drinks colder. I always bring my own towel I don’t like to be responsible for there towels which they charge 35.00 if you loose them and they are all the same color. Dollar bills, it says all tips included, but we love to give to the people they realy appreciate it!!!! And work very hard to please everyone!!!!
Very modern and spacious with a your own deck. Be prepared most of the rooms in Mexico are a bit musty smelling because of the humidity, small price to pay for the great weather. The refrigerators didn’t get cold a minus we only drank the bottled water, the drinks at the bars were way better!!!
Restaurants and Bars:
Realy liked the restaurants, the steak and seafood the steaks where top of the line. We haven’t experienced that in the past in Mexico. the sea bass was also very very good. Food was fresh and good everywhere we went. We were just there in Oct. and stayed at the Iberostar the food wasn’t that good there, it was a much bigger resort and I think that the quality goes down at that point.
Pool was great never crowded, beach was nice clean, there is a reef out in front and seaweed washes up early morning, we were up by 6:a.m. each morning to walk, but a tractor takes care of that problem. Grounds were very nice we also walked around the grounds. Another thing it’s only about 20" from the airport a huge plus!!!! We are going back in Nov. and will probably stay here again we liked it so much!! You will always read negative reviews, but you are never going to please everyone especially with today’s spoiled population!!!
Activities on and off the Resort/Hotel:
Snorkeling is good they offer a couple of parks both are good. Swimming with the dolphins is a good experience. Going into Playa Del Carmen or Cancun to shop and club is fun and very safe. Cocoa Bongo so fun!!
I always have people say to me you shouldn’t go to Mexico it’s dangerous, with everything going on. To be honest if you aren’t looking for drugs and are responsible and pleasant it’s the best experience. Iv’e had more close calls in New York City at night and during the day just being at the wrong place at the wrong time yes very scarey never ever in Mexico. I love the people in Mexico!!!!!! My daughter has been going there since she’s been 4 she is now 18 and traveled near and far, she loves it. One more thing very important learn a few spanish words they realy love to hear us speak there language.:) That’s about it. Good luck and have fun.
