Like all of the Carribean, this gorgeous beach has been ruined by seaweed (Sargassum). I hope it gets better before my next vacation so I can return here.

In comparison to the beach at our resort, this place was just "OK". Way too much stinky kelp lining the beach for my taste. Too crowded for my taste. Looks like they have a lot of amenities/services available if you wanted them. I can find nicer beaches closer to home and save myself the travel expense.

We travel in Mexico and central America a lot. This is one of my favorite beaches. The sand is sugar. Not too crowded. No big hotels. Palapas and Sol, and I am not talking about the sun, on the beach. Very relaxed and relaxing.

This beach can be calm or quite rough depending on the time of year and weather. The seaweed can also be heavy at times. I would still say it is one of the best. On a good day I could walk forever. Sundays at club Xpuha, a small local joint has music and authentic food if you want a casual... More

Boys love that you can do so much all day for one price! Have been twice! Snorkelling, eat and enjoy the grounds.

lots of sand and no waves the day we were there. We got a few beers from the local Restaurants and just sat and got some rays. This is a great l;location for kids as the water is warm and not too deep to start.
