The explorer is the type of hotel, that has few equals. The service and location alone makes it one of our favorite stops. Close to most of the major Mayan ruins in the most western part of Q. Roo and easterly Campeche; the Exploran is the very best accommodations to be found. Sure it is expensive but it is worth... More

This hotel is like no other we visited. There is not TV and no radios. Wi-Fi is only in the lobby. No clocks in the rooms either. There is a small pool, but kept clean. Food is great and the staff is awesome and accommodating. You can make your own drinks 12 hours a day. There are no open buffets... More

We truly enjoyed our stay here. We were greated at the airport and transported to the hotel (appoximately 45 minutes). Upon arrival we were given a beautiful cocktail and went directly to lunch before checking in. The wait staff during our stay was fabulous. Everyday they offered a salad and/or soup and two choices for a main course and desert.... More

These have to be my favorite vacations ever. This is the first time that the reality is better than the pictures. I couldn't believe my eyes, the greens and blues, it was just breathtaking! This is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed, disconnected time, do yourself a favor and stay away from the WiFi and discover that you don't... More

In a word: magical. We so enjoyed our week at The Explorean, which was somewhat difficult to access but well worth it. Logistics: We flew into Cancun, rented a car, spent some time in Tulum, and then drove refreshed to The Explorean. The entire journey of 400 kilometers between the Cancun Airport and the resort took about 5 hours. It’s... More

Perhaps simple luxury is an oxymoron, but that's how my husband and I felt about this (our first) all-inclusive hotel. The rooms and common spaces are gorgeous, the service and food mostly outstanding (especially loved Edgar at the restaurant and Enoc on the trips), but you won't find room service, televisions, in-room wifi, or even alarm clocks. Which was more... More

As has been previously stated by numerous reviews, this location is fairly remote. That being said, the overall package of food, activities, clean rooms, and friendly staff made this one of my favorite vacations I have ever been on.
