Rented a private yacht and left us stranded!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We rented a yacht for “7 hours” that included snorkeling. Upon arrival at snorkeling location they provided a mask and snorkel, NO FINS! We tried for 1 very long minute but without fins we were not getting anywhere. Thereafter, we went to Isla Mujeres for 45 minutes and we were told it was time to go. We were like what! We rented it for 7 hours. We asked to speak to the “boss” from the guys cell phone but the “boss” refused to speak with us. They left us there stranded and we had to pay and catch the ferry back to Cancun. Horrible business.

Hostlers and closed restaurants
Jan 2021
If you want to pay for sitting in a junkyard, this is the place to go. Everything is closed and all you will find is people that want to sell all kind of stuff and they will not leave you alone.

People are not very friendly and they will keep follow you until you buy something from them. It's a horrible place. We left after 5 minutes.

Beach club & snorkeling tour
Jul 2020
The beach club is fantastic, and Julio booked us an amazing snorkeling tour with David, Chippy, and Cecilia. The tour and guides were the best. We highly recommend this breathtaking tour, concluding in the beautiful El Cielo.

Kids Club Royal Cancun
Jan 2020
My daughter had the time of her life while staying at the Royal Cancun and it was all because of the Kids club at the resort. The workers there were amazing! Each day they played with many children and brought them to their families when they were finished. If you have a small child - they will love it there.

Lovely beach
Sep 2019 • Family
They are all public beaches in Mexico. This was next to our hotel. There was a bit if seaweed but they were cleaning it every day and it wasn't in the water. The ferry for isla mujeres goes from here. It's worth a visit but beware the island is full of scammmers.

One of the nicest beaches on this coastline!
Aug 2019
Playa Tortugas was one of the most attractive beaches that I explored on this stretch of coastline in the State of Quintana Roo. The sand was ultra-soft, the water a translucent shade of aquamarine and the conditions balmy and softly seductive. We whiled away a fabulous afternoon here.

The place itself is typical - but the walk along the beach is excellent
May 2019 • Couples
Great stroll along the beach on the north side of the Hotel Zone. Walk from there along the beach heading east. Beautiful sand. Calm waters. Actually some very good snorkeling just from the beach. Very few people. Playa Tortugas itself is a ferry stop. There will be lots of people trying to sell you tours, etc. Typical of similar places in Cancun.
