We have just arrived back home after 2 weeks of heaven. We have come to the conclusion that some people will never be satisfied even if their holiday was bespoked just for them, they would still find something to complain about !!!!!! The staff go out of their way to be helpful, breakfast had a good selection, something to suit... More

My husband and I just returned and had a terrific time. I had many questions before I went, so rather than cover all that the other reviews state, I'm going to tell you the answers to my questions #1 How long does it really take to get there and do I need a private transfer?

Lovely, laid back resort in the middle of the jungle. Quite a drive from the Cancun airport but completely not bad if you use affordable car service-- we went with USA Transfers and could not have been happier. Our room (not in the "premium" buildings) was fantastic. Large, great building materials, great A/C, comfy beds, etc. Short walk to either... More

We stayed at this hotel for 8 days. When we walked in, we were in love with the hotel. It was so open and breezy. Our room was nice. It wasn't as nice as the pictures they have on the site, but definitely adequate. The room has a safe, a mini fridge with sodas, water, and beer. House keeping was... More

Me and the wife came here for our honeymoon and we absolutely loved it. The hotel is built in and around the forest so their is an abundance of wildlife. Althought you can hear the noises the animals make its strangely relaxing and you feel completely secluded from the rest of the world. The food options are great with all... More

I loved this place. It was so relaxing and absolutely beautiful. No Kids, I loved it. Yes I will go back. The drinks were good and strong for me. I know people complain about the food. But I'm not there for the food only I want the whole package. It was great.

This is a great resort reasonably priced. We came here with friends and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The food was good in some places and not so good in others. The Italian was excellent, Spanish tapas was good, rest was ok. Lunch was good by the bar, we didn't care for the buffet. Drinks were plentiful. Resort employees were extremely pleasant.

We came here to spend New Years alone. First off, I will say, the place is absolutely beautiful. Definitely "5" star on it's appearance. Unfortunately, that's where the rating drops off a cliff. OK..FIRST!! Before you book this place, please understand that the resort does not offer Hotel/Airport transfers, so you will have to arrange getting there from the Airport... More
