This was my third trip to Cancun and I have stayed at two other hotels that were great but this one takes the cake! We stayed from January 19th to the 25th and the hotel was right in the middle of the hotel zone, so it was easy to wonder to the malls, flee markets and nightlife. The hotel was very clean and the hospitality was great. We had an ocean view room that was beautiful and it was quiet as we slept with the patio door open every night. The food was really good especially on Spanish night! The waiters were very friendly and staff greeted you everywhere. The beach was kind of spilt into to ends of the hotel shore line, one end had a ton of large rocks and coral with sand and some swimming areas and the other end was soft sand but there was plenty of room for people to sunbathe, play volleyball, swim and walk along the beach. The pools looked very well maintained but we never managed to make it into the pools as we swam in the ocean everyday instead. The sports bar was amazing! Be sure to visit Angelito as he was the best bartender and made our drinks to perfection!!! He is the Kindest person to have conversations with as well! The nightly entertainment was pretty good and the disco had a great selection of music. The excursions we booked from the hotel to Chichen-Itza and Xel-ha were amazing and the service was great as well. The Wi-Fi was a little weird as you had 90 minutes a day which is plenty BUT you basically had to use it in one session so if you couldn't get through to whomever you would have to wait and try the next day. Overall this hotel was amazing and we definitely plan to go back!!!
