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

We came for a family wedding 120 friends and family! Age from 2yrs to 70yrs everybody had a great and wonderful time! Rooms were clean but bathroom a bit small for my liking. Just needed a laundry room to wash and dry a few thing before going home!

Everything was wonderful (the beach, the pools, the food) and I would especially like to thank Ariel at the massage suite for a fantastic and relaxing experience. During my stay, I got a sunburn and she was extra careful with her therapeutic techniques.

We usually do a girls trip to Cancun once or twice a year. This is always our hotel of choice. It is always clean and usually not too crowded. The staff has always been very attentive and the hotel doesn't have a "stuffy feel" like some of the other resorts we have stayed at. On our trip in June this... More

We stayed at the gran Carib real resort from July 2nd 2014 to the 9th. I had about 50 family and friends with me. Overall, the experience was wonderful ! The food was fantastic, the people that work there are great. They all seem to really like their jobs. We had seen several bad reviews about young kids on graduations... More

I read all the reviews a couple weeks prior to leaving on trip. Stayed their Tuesday July 8, 2014 until Sunday July 13, 2014. It is currently a hotel catering to the young...late teen/20's in my opinion. Hotel is very clean and housekeeping did a good job and beach location is excellent. Food and access to restaurants leaves a little... More

Too many drunk hight school students who are noisy and rude. They stay up all night partying in hallway . My son is only 2 years old and... More
