The beach and the hotel staff are rated a 5. However, when we checked into our "Garden View" room, I believe it was the worst room on the property. Upstairs right above the "Raw Love" outdoor restaurant and right next to the maintenance shack. There was constant noise coming from both of those. We asked to move after 2 days... More

We held our wedding and reception at the Ahau on June 3rd, 2016. Planning a wedding for 55 people in the US in 4 months is a super aggresive schedule and we were very hesitant about trying to pull off that timeline in Mexico 3000 miles from home. Thankfully our fears were completely unfounded and everything turned out perfect down... More

I want to begin by saying that I read the few negative reviews about Ahau and feel it must be said that if you are looking for a Cancun style "booze-cruise" or to be pampered like the Queen of Sheba, go somewhere else; that is not Ahau. What Ahau IS: a welcoming, friendly place where all walks of life are... More

Had a great time relaxing on the beautiful beach. The food was delicious, especially the club sandwich and ceviche! The staff were so accommodating and friendly and really made you feel at home. Would definitely stay here in the future. The massage on the beach was amazing and so inexpensive! Dante was great!

The hotel/resort was fantastic. All the staff were excellent, especially Marco, Gabriela, and Ricardo. The food, drinks, and service was top-notch. The restaurant looked out to the beach and ocean was the grounds were immaculate, The only downside we experienced was the heat, but that was to be expected in July. A fantastic trip and resort.
