It is a small gated resort, so very safe, about 15 min. taxi ride to Playa del Carmen. I would go back to this resort. The food was excellent (for vacation in the South, I was amazed). The restaurants are all very good, we particularly enjoyed the japanese and crepe ones. The only negative point would be that they are hard to get into. You need to be in line very early in order to put your name down. Their reservation system is terrible. The room was nice, the beach small and rocky in the water, so bring water shoes, but great place to snorkel, lots of fish. That was so much fun! The marina is a short walk (5 min.) from the resort. They have dolphins there and little shops. We went on a couple of trips. We really wanted to see Chichenitza, so we did. It's amazing to see! but be aware they do take you to their friends or cousins to have you buy things. No pressure though, just their way to help someone get a bit of money. We also went to Playa del Carmen to shop and have lunch. It's a nice long main street with lots of shops, ice cream places, lunch spots, bars and a large nice beach. It was a fun day!
I would go back in a heart beat!
