We went for a friends sons wedding in April 2011 not 2014 (wouldn't let me pick a further date). It was our first trip to Mexico. We had no choice but to go to this resort as it was already booked for us. Nice hotel although they screwed up some reservations for the wedding and the couple got put up... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Gran Caribe & once again had a great time. We had been staying at the Gran Puerto Real but because it was so spread out I had a hard time getting around there & the Gran Caribe was so kind to find us an awesome room where there isn't so much walking. We... More

This was our 5th time to stay at the Gran Caribe and after the experience we will never go back there. One room stunk like dirty feet and they brought in a fan for 4 hours. We had upgraded to the highest level room and we were unable to get reservations at any restaurant other than the Buffett. I tried... More

We were excited to stay here based on the reviews I read but unfortunately it did not live up to them in my opinion. When we arrived the staff was friendly and attentive as advertised. Our first room was in what seemed to be an older un-remdolded section of the hotel (2816). The room was sparsely decorated and when I... More

The is something to do here for children of all ages and many events for adults. Everything is within steps so you do not have a long haul... More

Not a good experience at all!! The A.C. was broken, it was incredibly hot so no one sleeps in 100 degree weather. The food wasn't great. Also what we thought was a V.I.P package ended up being a very small and cramped bedroom for 4. We asked why our rooms changed and she said that our V.I.P was at home... More

We spent 4 nights for a family wedding that included over 100 guest.I liked that the hotel was not so spread out that you couldn't find anyone,It was a great hotel to mix and mingle, some hotels are so spread out that you feel like you are on a totally different vacation than the folks you came with because you...

We were not real impressed at arrival to the resort. All we heard at check-in was upgrade, upgrade, and upgrade. When we turned them down, it was as if we became 2nd class citizens. Getting us in our room no longer was a priority in the front desk's eyes, it seemed. It did not get any better at the guest... More

We booked my daughters wedding a year in advance for 37 people. Upon arrival we were all encouraged to upgrade to the next door Hyatt for a very reasonable price. Unfortunately, a few of our rooms were already occupied, and we had our 4 year old grandson arriving the next day and some of us couldn't move. I was a... More
