The decor reminds me somewhat of Bali and the developers didn't skimp. Everything is very well put together and maintained. We stayed in a three bedroom unit and there was tons of space... More

This was my first vacation in Mexico and what a wonderful introduction!

The three of us stayed at this beautiful hotel from the 21st-28th August. The hotel is beautiful and the location is perfect (right next to 5th Avenue) but what stood out was the service we received.
