First of all i would like to say why i gave this hotel 4 stars instead of 5 - The private beach area supposedly reserved for Sian Kaan guests was completely full everyday with people from the Tulum hotel which is directly behind. We were unable to find a sunbed for the entire holiday so were unable to enjoy the beach.
Now on to the rest - This hotel is one of the nicest places i have ever been fortunate to stay in, i have travelled extensively and this trip was the best i have ever taken. Honeymoon 11th-18th April. We stayed in a Junior suite superior attic with jacuzzi - just the view from the terrace is worth the money.
The food was incredible - the buffet is extraordinary, there is a huge range of all types of food and the staff are not only friendly and professional but genuinely interested in your experience there and your life. Thanks especially to Daniel who runs the team and Jose who was an absolute sweetheart to us everyday.
The staff - What can i say, they really are there to please, but one man stands out - Rolando. He is apparently a trainee but he acted like a manager. His local knowledge was unrivalled and he moved heaven and earth to help us out and give us all the information he really could to make our stay more enjoyable. I salute you sir.
The transport - there are numerous carts and mini trains that take you EVERYWHERE in the entire complex. the beach is 5mins away and the trains come every 5mins or so. Fantastic.
We had a lovely time around the swimming pool, the snack bars and cocktails make the all inclusive thing really work.
Amazing holiday, highly recommend this hotel to anyone, just hope they sort out the beach for my next visit!
P.S - Check out the TAO wellness centre - it really is as incredible as they say. It's right next door to the golf club.
