1. Last year, we had booked and confirmed a specific hut that we had stayed in twice before. We really liked this hut's...More

Just got back from ten days of relaxation, discovering new places and meeting new friends! Spent the first several days in an ocean view room, which was very nice and then upgraded to an ocean front room. We loved the ocean front room and enjoyed...More
Agreeing with all the other reviewers, this is a wonderful resort and we will definitely return.
We were very happy with our room, an ocean view palapa, although the rooms further back also seemed great. Higher floor is the way to go, the ground floor...More

Due to our proximity to Quinta Avenida, the main street of Playa del Carmen, most guests want the option to dine and enjoy adult beverages in town. We do offer a half board plan package with breakfast each morning and then a choice of lunch or dinner daily. It doesn't include drinks, alcohol or gratuities but it is a great deal. We also have happy hour each afternoon from 5-6pm with 2 for one drinks.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Thank you for your message. Typically September is a quieter month at the resort. We recommend stopping by the concierge to see which restaurants are open that night and what the theme is. We do a beach BBQ and will rotate our main evening meal locations. We also recommend making reservations at Fuego since this restaurant is popular and can be busy, but in September is less crowded. It's a wonderful time in Playa del Carmen. Also be sure to check out the "FAQ" section on our website where we answer other questions you may have prior to your arrival. There you will learn about airport transfers, wifi, meal plan information and more. If something is missing, let me know. I am always looking to add more information to help our guests!
See you in 2018!
