Stayed here 7/19/16. This is one of the nicest beaches I have had the good fortune to enjoy. The hotel is off the beaten path, and I selfishly hope it stays that way. We enjoyed our stay here, the one area of improvement they could use since the rooms do not have air conditioning - would be better ventilation. The... More

The hotel is perfect to spend a weekend a week or a lifetime! The beach is perfect, calm, white sand and alone! The hotel is private and exceed your expectations since the beginning! We spent four days and definitely we could not leave the place! Incredible!

If you're looking for peace & quiet on a beautiful beach, this is the place. Great staff with great service and really good food and drinks. After a 20 minute taxi ride we arrived at this secluded small exclusive beachfront resort where we spent the day relaxing, snorkeling, walking on the secluded beach, having drinks and being served a delicious...

My wife and I did the day all-inclusive on our cruise when it stopped in Costa Maya. This was by far he highlight of our vacation. The manger was waiting for us when we got there to be sure we had everything we needed. The wait staff was attentive, lunch was amazing. They really make you feel at home. The... More

This resort is 10min by car from Mahahual (downtown), you can either take a taxi or rent a car (in Chetumal). The beach is out of this world, so clean, white sand and you can see several kinds of blue at the sea (stunning). Rooms are perfect and the staff is really nice. Free continental breakfast.

Our daughter hurt her foot on a rock at the resort. The manager was so nice and drove us to the port. We had a nice time and the food was amazing. A nice place to get away and relax. The drinks were not what we were used to on the ship. All were made fresh and very limited The... More

The best getaway hotel ever!!! The food ad drinks are excellent and not expensive at all, very fresh and well cooked! Best of all: the view and sound of the ocean just in front of my window. Not to close to the main road, but totally worth it!

I've been in several Eco resorts, but this one has the award for a nice view, relaxing beach and privacy. The hotel is not close to the town, so the entire beach is only for the guests. Just imagine how quite and relaxing is! Only 9 suites, with all the equipment, always clean, big enough. The hotel staff is so... More

"I found my happy place and they make a mean margarita" This place is amazing...we pre-arranged for massages and enjoyed a superb, secluded quiet beach and a fantastic lunch.

Booked a day pass at Almaplena when our cruise stopped in Costa Maya. This beach club is very secluded and about 17 miles away from the cruise port. Transportation is provided in a yellow cab which is an adventure in itself - no seat belts and very fast driver. Resort is very small, we maybe saw 6-8 other visitors. The... More
