This hotel for my family (we traveled with a 6&9 years old) was almost perfect. First of all the transportation from the airport was great, they used the small minibus, so it was almost like private transfer, didn't have to stop at any hotel to drop off other people. The hotel grounds are beautiful, newer, spotless, always enough chairs around... More

Everyone that you get to know is so friendly and personable. Hostess, wait staff, bartenders, cleaning staff, Front desk, and anyone working the grounds made an effort... More

If you are not a heavy drinker or a non-drinker beware...... This resort calls itself "all inclusive" but it was very difficult to get non-alcoholic warm beverages such as coffee or tea. They had a small coffee machine in the lobby lounge and when I asked for coffee was told that it was "broken". The only times that I could... More

I had done my homework, read tons of reviews and am glad that I planned this wonderful trip.We stayed for one week in a one bedroom suite which was perfect for us and still felt very roomy. The beds... More

This was our first stop on our stay in Cancun. Honestly if I would have known how great this resort was I would have booked it first. The rooms were incredible, the pools and abundance of eateries were great. You are kinda far away from everything but they make up for it with amenities. I prefer a quiet relaxed atmosphere... More

We just got back from Cancun. We are owners at Villa Del Palmar but not of this resort. This was our first trip here. The property is very pretty and easy to get around. May is their quiet time. We had no problems finding chairs or getting into the restaurants. We had the all-inclusive for 3 days. We did not... More

Our home resort was (note the was) at Villa del Arco in Cabo San Lucas (which we bought in May 2006), but since we moved to Florida, Cancun is much more convenient for us to travel to, which is why...
