We stayed in the honeymoon suite room number 4211. We purchased in advanced the "privileged" status. The upgrades included a FREE Mini-Bar refill daily, the swan sculpture towels everyone posts, slippers, bath robes, a FREE Massage, dinner at The Terrace Restaurant and a Continental Breakfast. Privileged guests also get their own area on the beach, the pool and The Buffet... More

We stayed at this resort from March 30-April 6th. The overall experience at this resort was wonderful. We were having our wedding here so we had a large group. Upon arrival everyone was very friendly and very accommodating to our large group. The walk from the lobby to the pool was quite far. We have a 2 year old so... More

We were supposed to go to C. Tulum, and were forced into this one. Obviously under-staffed. They worked hard, but I often had to get our coffee and water. Buffet would run out of food. It is dominated by Europeans, not good or bad, but it felt isolating as an English speaker (weird, I know, I'm in a foreign country,... More

We spent last week at the resort and loved it. I cannot say how much we love the Mexican experience. We have been traveling for to many years now and it seems we always have Mexico in our heart's. I love every thing about this resort, sure we have stayed in more expensive places but we fell in love from... More

Room I had Privileged, Gold Members. Room fully equipped and quality service. Near the pool and beach. Fine white sand and turquoise sea. Food and drink was... More

What a fantastic time. Just returned 4/5/2014 We booked the privileged for the slight upgrade charge. That seemed to be well worth while. The one side of the beach only had small palm trees for shade the "privileged side" had nice umbrellas for shade. I am not sure if it was from the upgrade or not but the specialty restaurants...

First of all, I would like to mention that this was our second stay here. Last year, we were here in February and found it very windy and cool. This year, we arrived on March 29th and the weather was perfect all week. I would also like to mention our special thanks to the Chief Concierge, Ms. Pilat Montano, for... More

Property was amazing, staff first rate, food wonderful . Rooms pleasant . Beds a bit hard, but the softer pillows in the cupboard helped our sleep. Balconies were amazing. Great place to sit and watch the frogs catch moths in the evenings. Overall a fantastic stay. Beach awesome, would recommend the upgrade just for the covered beach huts.

We chose this resort based on the reviews of the beach we’d read here on TripAdvisor. That said, the beach did not disappoint. But some other things were hit or miss. FIRST IMPRESSIONS Upon our arrival we were met by our bellboy, Gilberto, who took our bags, walked us over to the lobby bar and got two margaritas for us.... More

We just got back two days ago. We had booked 2 Privilege Superior rooms and were lucky to get Building 6 Palenque right on the beach. In 14 trips to Cancun area we have never seen a beach this beautiful and swimmable. You have to play the towel game to reserve a palapa on the beach. You can walk for... More
