This resort hotel is set in an eco village of jungle featuring various mammals and birds. What a joy to look over your balcony and see an iguana staring up at you or watching a tree monkey swinging past. The hotel is currently undergoing a facelift but sadly it appears, will lose its Mexican feel.
Our room was comfortable and spacious but unfortunately had no privacy between bedroom and shower area, which is needed when sharing with a teenager and/or 3rd adult. One of the quietest air conditioning units ever experienced.
Quality and selection of food was excellent, one reason for choosing this hotel. The all inclusive element including drinks was first class and good value. Entertainment was excellent and the team worked very hard to make your holiday special.
Unfortunately, Mexico suffers badly from mosquitos and recommend their "Off" cream which has no strong odour and worked for us.
