Loved this place. It's easy enough to get the bus to the beach so don't be put off by that - regular and quick - plus there is a pool, all inclusive bar and buffet once you're there. The food is excellent and very Mexican, the rooms are lovely and the best part is the wild Coatis all around the...

Sometimes, the little things do count Having ice buckets in the room would have been perfect to go along nicely with the whiskey, gin, rum and vodka dispensers in our room. Instead, I was given a small cup of ice at the bar, and told to come back if I needed more. Also, tonic water in the mini-fridge would have...

It is 4km by bus to the beach from the hotel (15 minutes). The food was very good and featured a large variety. The room was clean. The staff behind the reception desk is useless in trying to resolve your issues. No ice buckets in the rooms so they tell you to get ice from the bar. They don't have...

Nice hotel in Mexico. Food 5/5, rooms 5/5, drinks 6/5. Privet beach, but you should go by bus. This hotel is the best. And when you are going back, from excursions you are the first to get from your ride, so you mustn't wait your turn to go home.

“Always ask for rooms on 1st and 2nd floor because on ground flood could be a problem with coaties who really enjoyed people's stuff. :)”

“I like the rooms in Buildings 12, 13 & 14 that back up to the golf course. They are far away from the bar and theater, and therefore quiet.”

“If Possible ask not to get a ground floor Room. The Coatis wildlife may visit you if you leave the fly screen or the sliding door open.”
