My husband and I (retirees) specifically returned to this resort as it offers most everything people in general are looking for in resort with a flair above average. It offers the mature character of an older seasoned resort which carters to the happiness and welfare of their clients. The grounds are beautifully kept. We enjoy the "tame" wildlife often seen around the resort. The choice and quality of food was a much higher grade that more expensive resorts that we have stayed at in the Mayan Riveria. The buffet room offers a large covered terrace seating area where we enjoyed are breakfacts. Lots of daily activites to select from. Often daily arts, craft and cooking displays happen around the pool during the day. Clean and sandy beach. Short 15-20 minute walk into Playa del Carmen and the local Mayan ruins along the beach area. Small shopping mall across the street with a Starbucks and internet cafe.
Spacious rooms with balconies are very clean and maintained, although a bit dated in appearance. In room bar and fridge. Lots of storage room for clothes and luggage so you are not living out of a suitcase as in some resorts.
Live nightly entertainment at their theatre, as well as, in the lobby before their big evening theatre show.
Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Great value for the price. Diffinetly would return again.
