The views were great! The ocean had such sting under current that it was not safe to get in the ocean off the beach. The pools were very clean. Our room was on the 3rd floor and it was hard to get it cooled down in the daytime. The food was good and there was a variety. Drinks were always... More

Rude front desk staff Daniel and She said her name was Victoria but she did not have name tag. Gave us the run around on room options and we asked to pay for room upgrade to building 7 and was told that there were no available rooms to find out later that people who arrived the same day that we...

I have been to many all inclusive resorts through Mexico, so my review is based on past experiences. This is a solid 4 star out of 6 stars. Hotel people are friendly, grounds are kept perfect, pools are all crystal clear, rooms are a little out dated but comfortable, buffets are repetitive but all fine, no one out of the... More

I've been here twice and never a dull moment spent here. Amazing and reasonable hotel near downtown area where you can cab for nightlife. The hotel itself was nice enough where you don't even have to leave this resort. Food was pretty good.

My wife and I went for a 1 week trip with our 6 month old daughter. We had a great time. Stayed in ocean view top floor in building 7 and had no problems with noise, or fighting or negative things like that at all I had read in previous reviews. The pools are great, ocean is not swimmable in... More

I will write an over all review of the entire resort to include the food, the entertainment as well as the room and service. People have complained that there is not a variety of food. I disagree they have an Asian, an Italian, a steak house as well as a Mexican restaurant. On top of those especialty restaurants they have... More

This being my first REAL vacation in Mexico i was happy that it was at an all-inclusive resort and i was with some really great friends. The place is definitely as advertised in the photos that i have seen online. The room we stayed in which was in building 7 had its own restaurant and really close to the pools... More

We spent three days there. The place is huge, well maintained and has lots of options for activities for people of all ages. It is an all inclusive place and they even stock the rooms with beer, liquor and sodas. Food was very good in the main dining room but was disappointing at the steak house and at the Asian... More
