Our family of 4, 2 adults and 2 kids age 11 & 13 just returned from the Gran Festival after a one week stay. We read all the reviews before we left so we weren't expecting luxury at all but were still quite disappointed. First I'll start with the good. The waterslides were fun for all of us once you...

This place is unbelievable, there is gross grime anywhere you look. I like small hotels, I have stayed at very rustic places, but this hotel should be closed until cleaned properly. The air conditioning works as a fan not A/C, thank God it is February and not so hot. We stayed at a bungalow they call "suite". The master bedroom... More

We found this resort disappointing, as the services were no where near what was advertised when we booked. Many of the advertised available activities were not open or available. The resort advertises a variety of eating locations however when we were there only 1 buffet was open at a time(except on the Saturday when all the locals arrived for a... More

We just returned from this resort - stayed the week of Jan. 18 - 22. Lots of good and not so good points about this resort. Evening shows are excellent entertainment....totally enjoyable. We found the food to be just average. This resort is basically a local Mexican one where tons of Mexican families come for a few days. Therefore, the... More

This resort deserves a good review! We consulted Trip Advisor before booking and pretty much knew what to expect from our trip. With the risk of repeating some of the previous reviews – shortly: It is a relatively quiet resort for families and couples. If you need more action – go on town. There are few night clubs and life... More

We travelled as a family of 4 (our kids were 7 & 9 at the time) when a last minute deal after Christmas last year was too good to pass up. First off, if you need a very modern luxury hotel Gran Festival is not for you. It is older and is definitely showing its age around the edges. The... More

Rooms are small and old. Walking distance to rooms is too far, at least I am shedding some Kg's. Too much chlorine in swimming pool, my hair is frizzy. Food is good, but repetitive. Reception staff are not trained to handle non Spanish speaking tourists. All inclusive alcohol on tap, which means all you can drink, winner winner!! I'm so... More

We travel to Mexico 2 or 3 times a year and each time we go to a different place and different chain of hotels. We always go for two weeks. Because we are retired, this hotel may not be right for the younger crowd who want upscale. Each villa has a separate bedroom, eating area, living room and two bathrooms.... More

I went to this hotel about 2 years ago. Nice hotel overall. Has air conditioning, buffet, several swimming pools and pretty much everything you need. This hotel is more a family style hotel not really a spot for young adults but if you enjoy more of a relax setting then this is the spot for you. The beach has at... More
