If you are expecting luxury you wont find it here but you will find a clean room and friendly staff for a good price. The beach is small but not crowded. There is some seaweed but it doesnt fill the water so not a huge deal. There are certainly nicer beaches in the area but they are more crowded and... More

Everyone is really friendly... but it's far away from all the exciting areas except the center city of real cancun.. not the nightlife ;) They did have tons and tons of activities during the day. I just wished it could have been more packed and more active with young people... more of a hotel for 38+

The resort itself was nice enough, simple and clean. Pool area is a bit small - but you're in Cancun, so lots of options. The staff were really friendly, and were great to chat with. They ran different activities as well to keep things interesting (pool games etc). Being on an all inclusive package made things super fun and easy.

Had a great time here, staff were friendly, resort is very nice. Multiple pool areas, a nice bar and restaurant. 10 minute bus to clubs - costs about $1 USD to use the bus that runs all night. The rooms are also very nice and comfortable.

The hotel itself is a little removed from the hotel hubbub, but at the same time it offers accessibility to both the city and the bay's centre. A great place to utilise at the beginning of a trip. Hotel staff are friendly and attentive. They knew who we were before we'd even said our names. Only two minuses are that... More

After staying in some great places in Mexico, this was a bit of a letdown. It's clean and comfortable, don't get me wrong. We only stayed one night prior to flying out of Cancun, but we had some issues with booking things to the room, and it was just a bit of a pain. The restaurants certainly aren't cheap if... More

I am a platinum elite member, and stay only at IHG hotels, and have done so for over 20+ years. This holiday Inn was truly a dis-apointment and in reading the reviews, "not up to par", "not for light sleepers", etc..is only the tip of the ice berg. We stayed an entire week, and regret that very much at this... More

The hotel has a very good value for the money you pay in Cancun. If you are not looking for the expensive "all inclusive" resorts, this is the place. We just had breakfast at the hotel, because the rest of the time we travelled to places like Tulum, Chichen Itza and Merida. If we had paid full board we would... More

The walls in this hotel (stayed on 2nd floor) are incredibly thin. I heard every noise from the rooms either side and in the hallway. Also, they start cleaning rooms at 8am so each morning I was woken by cleaning carts on the tiles in the hallway and the maids, often talking very loudly. The room had a terrible smell.... More
