Loved the hospitality, everyone was so nice. Although it was the off season they kept everyone entertained with dance and poolside games. I was also fortunate enough to participate in the annual release of some baby green turtles. Amazing beaches, 3 different ones to visit. Ask Roberto to make you a Sangria!

I stayed there for a week and we loved it there. It's right on the beach. To go for a swim you will need to walk around 5 minutes to go down to the beach but when you do - it's wonderful. What I loved most the place isn't packed nor is the hotel. You get to feel the nature,...

Our stay at Playa Blanca was lovely. We booked a good deal and feel we got excellent value. Like a previous reviewer, my expectations were not high. We were prepared to shuttle daily to the big beaches given the reviews. To our pleasant surprise, there were 3 boardwalk access points just to the west of the westernmost bungalow with wonderful...

We were slightly dubious about booking this hotel after reading Tripadvisor reviews. We had a matrimonial suite which is a duplex and given that it is all inclusive, the stay was fantastic value. The beach side of things is a minor complication as the hotels beach is nice to look at but not for bathing. There is a mini train...

This was probably our 10th time vacationing in Cayo Largo and we were reasonably happy with our stay. Two things concerned us somewhat resulting in second thoughts about returning next winter. Upon arrival at noon, we were told our rooms were not ready for the next 2 hours - not a big deal. So we went to change out of...
