You will not be disappointed with this hotel! It was 5 star customer service from the moment we arrived till we were dropped off at the airport. We LOVED this hotel so much, we booked another trip while we were still there! The staffs at this hotel are extremely helpful, and courteous. Everyone there made our stay a memorable one. We had the pleasure of being checked in and out by a wonderful lady (GMOLI732 – sorry I can’t remember your name) who made sure that our room was ready by the time we arrived. And not only that, she made sure that our room had all the baby amenities that we need so we had the crib, bottle warmer, bottle sanitizer, and a high chair in the room waiting for us! Tips for travelers: Go down to the beach super early (I went down around 645-7am) to snag the blue lounge at the beach for only $35/day. They don’t take reservation for those lounge; first come first serve. You can also make advance reservation for the big casitas for $235/day. Sand toys – they gave each kid a set of sand toys when you checked in so no need to pack these bulky items unless you want to. Forgot your sunscreen? No worries, they have stations thru out the pool & beach area with sunscreen and aloe vera just in case you get too much sun. Do book a casita ($100 fee) for dinner – it was an intimate and romantic dining experience (even with 2 kids running around). We had Marcos and David the first night we arrived and they were rock stars! Food – we ate lunch at the property for the whole week. My husband was hooked on the Yucatan Chicken Sandwich, my daughter who doesn’t really like chicken loves their chicken quesadilla, and you can’t go wrong with any of the grilled fish. And if you like spicy, be sure to ask for the habanero spicy sauce that the chef makes in-house – they should sell that sauce! I also love their Mango Chile Margarita – spicy and refreshing! We certainly also ordered quite a bit of pina colada. Seaweed – I read some reviews online complaining about it. We really didn’t see any when we were there (Thanksgiving week) so maybe it only comes during the summer months? Not sure. Ocean – the waves can be rough but they do have 2 life guards on duty during our stay. We got lucky on 2 days when the ocean was calm. The life guards will tell you the areas where you can swim in. In-house photography – we loved them! They did such a good job especially with a raging toddler on the loose. Make sure you bring outfits to do family photoshoot, they charge $20/picture with no sitting fee and you get one free from your resort fee. I would suggest doing the shoot on a cloudy day so you don’t squint your eyes too much. Book a couple of sessions on different days and hopefully one of them will be cloudy? That’s how I would do it the next time we are there – Oct 2022! Restaurants – there are a few restaurants that are walking distance if you get bored with the options at the hotel. The concierge can help with reservations or you can do it yourself as most of them are available on open table. Shout out to David (the server), Marcos, Edgar and Reynaldo at the restaurant/beach/pool area. They took good care of us while we were busy sun bathing and playing in the ocean. Ruben, our bell guy remembered us through out our stay. Miguel at concierge was ever so helpful with all our needs and questions. Juliana who made sure our room was always nice at the end of the day. I only wish I can have my house cleaned twice a day! Thank you all for making our stay there a memorable one. A couple of improvements - they can add a little more alcohol in their drinks and they definitely need to change their baby wash & shampoo as both are not tear free. Found out the hard way so we stopped using them on day 2.

Upon arriving a refreshing tropical cool drink awaits you. I was not doing the check in so I relaxed in the cozy lobby chair and observed the florals displayed in long black vases on a huge table just feet away. You have arrived. You know you're in the best of hands. The Staff and Management all made our short stay so relaxing. The Pool area and service were so attentive and the Food/Beverage choices were quite extensive. A little shout out to the very accommodating Breakfast Hostesses and Staff that dealt with all the COVID protocol making us feel very comfortable and safe. Josue, Genaro and Angel looking forward to your wonderful service and caring manner on future visits. All the Housekeeping staff thank you also for the maintaining and tidying our suite. From the time you arrive to check out there is a sense of innate hospitality that is so appreciated. Thank you all......

We spent 5 nights over Thanksgiving and it was so amazing! The pools were great. Always clean. The wait staff was very attentive. We ate almost every lunch by the pool and everything was so good & fresh. The ocean was a highlight. In November it was warmer than the pools. You can walk right in. The intensity of the waves seemed to change daily but there are life guards watching, we even watched them help someone who was having trouble getting back to shore. We did an ocean view which was worth the extra cost. Sitting on the balcony watching the waves & sunsets was amazing. We also traveled with our 7 & 9 year olds. This is definitely a very family friendly resort. Every restaurant offers kids options. They give all the kids sand toys upon arrival. Overall a great vacation & we all want to go back!

While the hotel is nice, the property needs to be updated. This was our second time staying here on the club level and both times we were not impressed with Antonio's attitude. While I completely understand the club levels dress requirements after five pm, there is no reason to say something out loud to a customer that is grabbing something to go to the room. I was wearing a beautiful dress, and definitely not wet, but he felt the need to say something out loud in front of everyone, which was completely inappropriate. Maybe next time ask a customer in private or wait until they actually sit down in the club because that was not my intention. I will honestly not stay in the hotel again now, because there is always a time and place. The food is ok, and the service is ok as long as you get certain people to help. If you do stay make sure you get car service from the hotel and do not wait. No one told us this from the club level, and we were stuck at the airport. If you eat at the Casitas for Thanksgiving it is a set menu and the kids have to eat from the set menu. There is no other options for them. Just a heads up.
