This property is amazing! The grounds are meticulously landscaped and a lot of attention goes in to the appearance of the property. I would highly recommend it for anyone. The service is top notch and friendly. We stayed for 6 days in 45B. I would recommend getting a Palapa room. The food is good, you get breakfast and dinner or you can swap dinner for lunch. The restaurants on the property are very nice and clean. It is easy to access the very clean and beautiful beach, which is one of the best in Playa. If you want a relaxing laid back atmosphere, this is the property for you. Don’t get caught up on the other reviews about the food, it was good! Dinner each night was a different theme, mostly buffet style. Breakfast was light with fruits, yogurt, cereal, and eggs to order. There are many dining options on 5th Ave, which is only a 5 minute walk away. The rooms have no TV, Phone, or internet. They do provide internet in the lobby and bar areas.
