My wife and I spent 6 nights here in July for our 10 year wedding anniversary. It was outstanding!! Great, top shelf drinks (if you asked for them). Fantastic food (Tapas was favorite, followed by mexican). Absolutely gorgeous water/beach/grounds. Not too big and overwhelming. We loved that there were no other resorts nearby. some mosquitoes, so bring repellent for evenings....

My husband and I decided to book the CRT for 2 week (From July 16th to 30th) after many recommendations from the Isla Mujeres Forum and reading the 99.9% good reviews over here. We had very high expections (as it was our Honeymoon) but were still afraid we might be extremely annoyed by all the Italians, their smoking and rudeness....

This place is amazing; I don’t even know where to begin… Service - is excellent! All the staff is very friendly and the front desk and employees that interact with the customers know English. This is a plus. I’ve been to some resorts in Mexico and the front line staff do not know English. Bar – top shelf liquor is...

We had a great week at CRT. The staff was great, always friendly and willing to go out of their way to please you. Amazing service especially on the beach for drinks! The sand on the beach was white and soft, no rocks, always chairs available. Snorkeling to the right of the resort was not too bad for snorkeling off...

My husband and I traveled to Mexico for a much needed getaway. We booked our vacation through a travel agent (Apple Vacations). We flew a direct flight from BWI (Air Tran) to Cancun.
