We visited early September as a family, we have twin 4 year old boys. We had an absolute blast at this resort. It was perfect for us, and we enjoyed everything about staying at The Fives. It definitely deserves a 5 out of 5, but you there’s a couple of areas which are worth mentioning. 1) The beach - It’s not your typical picturesque beach that looks like paradise. It’s rocky the second you walk into the ocean, and the sand banks they’ve built to act as wave breakers are such an eye sore. If you’re looking for that perfect, Caribbean beach so you can take pictures for the Gram, you might want to look elsewhere. The beach here also has the seaweed problem which is plaguing most of the Caribbean, but the staff here do an amazing job cleaning up as much as they can. 2) There are not many activities to do when it rains. Visiting in September means you run the risk of storms, and it rained every day for at least a couple of hours. Any worse, and we’d have been stuck in our room as there’s no indoor activities in this resort. If you have young kids, it’s something to consider. If you’re just adults, you can prop yourself up at one of the bars and ride out the storm. Good points. Everything else! The food was truly great. I’ve read negative reviews on here about the food, and honestly that was not our experience at all. We are a well traveled couple, who have lived all over the world, and we could not fault any of the food we had. The themed restaurants are on point, and nailed every dish we had. They all had options for kids, so that made it so easy. We didn’t have a single issue with getting reservations for any restaurant. The rooms are really nice, we got a 1 bedroom suite which had a decent sofa bed our twins shared. I loved how there were so many pools on this resort. If you didn’t want to hang out at the main pool, you could swim in one of the pools by the rooms and pretty much have it to yourself. My favorite thing about this resort? The staff. Every person we encountered was so customer focused, and extremely helpful. They were always so pleasant, and everyone seemed genuinely interested in working here. They take pride in the resort, and they should, it’s a great place to visit. We would highly recommend staying here. We enjoyed our short stay and would for sure visit again some time in the future. Can’t wait to have those poolside tacos again!!

We brought our 2 kids (3&5) for one week and had the best time. It was so relaxing and exactly what we needed to get away. We’re already ready to go back!! I can’t say enough about the great staff - so kind and helpful- with absolutely anything we needed. They were so accommodating. Including our concierge, Claudia. It was so nice to have someone to help us each day; and she’s awesome! Everything was also very clean. We felt very comfortable and safe and appreciated all of their protocols to sanitize and keep guests safe. The pool and beach area was amazing. Unbelievable. We loved all of the space and that it wasn’t difficult finding chairs. Each day, we bounced back and forth. Within the big pools, they had shallow areas about a foot deep which were awesome for the kids playing! And, aside from the big pool, there are pools throughout the property - which was so nice to “change the scenery” for afternoon vs morning (so spoiled, right?!). Plenty of pool bars, which was awesome for us parents too! On that note, the property itself was so beautiful and a huge plus of the resort. Big property, with varying landscape. We loved that they have a jungle walk and paths. It made it really fun for the kids. The food and restaurants were also great. No complaints. It was really nice that each restaurant had plenty of food options for kids - and they would put together anything requested outside of their normal “kid options.” All you had to do was ask. For example, we asked for grilled chicken, rice, vegetables, etc. based on the restaurant and it was no problem at all. They say you need to have reservations, but the resort occupancy was so low when we were there that it really wouldn’t have been an issue if you didn’t have them. I do wish they would have more lunch or all day food options - for snacks, lighter food, etc. For example, they have one full service sit down lunch, but they would benefit from another beach grill type restaurant (aside from the burger bar they have, and taco cart). I do think they are working on one (construction phase). The gym onsite was very nice. About 4-5 treadmills, at least one bike and one elliptical plus great weights. It looked onto the main plaza area which was nice for treadmill runs. My one word of warning/caution: they will try to offer to you to get you in a sales pitch meeting. We sat through it and it was high pressure. About an hour time commitment (no cutting it short) and it’s awkward because it is so high pressure. I feel like there has to be a better way for them to go about this. It’s a great resort and family of properties, but the sales approach could be a bit more mature. I have such wonderful memories from this trip and am appreciative for such great staff and the resort. Highly recommend!

My children and I had a lovely time at The Fives Beach Resort. We found the service excellent, all staff was kind and helpful! The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The fauna and wildlife is exceptional. Love the monkeys and pig! The food options and quality is fantastic. The alcoholic drinks are watered down, though plentiful. I’d say the main take away is the rooms. While they are nice, they aren’t five star worthy. They are good enough, clean enough, comfortable enough; just a bit worn. The beach area is beautiful, yet is small and crowded. This was our first time traveling to an all inclusive resort, we enjoyed ourselves! We would recommend The Fives Beach Resort!

This was our second time at The Fives, last time was 4 years ago. I again really enjoyed my time on this resort: great pools, beach was super clean and chairs were always available. I enjoyed all the drinks I had on the beach and at the pool bar. We received great service everywhere on the resort. The grounds are absolutelty fabulous. Our room in villa two was vey clean and we appreciate the size of the suites! The older suites are starting to show their age… they need to upgrade the shower and jacuzzi area. Also 4 years ago they wouls also put some snacks in the fridge with the beers and cola but not this time ( are they cutting on cost ?) The food was still good but the quality is definitely going down. The advertise themself as a gourmet resort, if they continue to lower the food quality, they will surely lose customers. Also try to go to the concierge as few times as possible as it is all a trick to force you to go to their pressure sale session.

During our check in we agreed to go to their time share presentation in exchange for a free Bali bed on the beach some time during our stay and after we did the presentation the concierge Stephane asked us if we’d like to add the seafood platter for only a $25 USD charge which we agreed. Later that day Alejandro the man that says he was in charge of booking the beds came up to us with a receipt for over $4000 mxn and all in Spanish saying we had to sign it for the bed the next day or it wouldn’t be able to book the bed. So we signed, but then immediately went to talk to the concierge because something didn’t seem right. Stephane had already left for the day so we talked to his partner about what the charge was for and how we were only supposed to be paying $25 USD and he said that if that what was promised they’d honor it and to talk to Stephane the next day, which we did and he also said that we were good. So when we went to check out they told me bill was over $100 USD! And all they could do is lower by $10 USD and refused to change it to the price promised to us. After talking to 3 different people they couldn’t do anything for us so we were forced to pay. We absolutely will not be back again!!
