This hotel was brilliant. Our room was clean every single day with fresh towels and fridges restocked. The maid even tidied our room and made our beds! Our shower was huge! You could fit 4 of us inside! Only one pool; but you don't need that as you have the beach.. (hotels personal beach is small) Howeverrrrrr you can walk along every other hotels beach included on the strip barcelo was on from your beach as there were no barriers. We walked for miles in the sunshine! Staff was incredible... making it really fun. Table service for cocktails in all restaurants. They make them lovely and strong. I will say to the ladies to watch there drinks because i got spiked on my second day out there at night by the pool bar (probably by a hotel guest) and it was really scary. The food was nice. Some days it was really yummy, and some days not so great. But the a la cart places were exceptionally nice. Breakfast was always delicious. We went for spring break. For people wanting to go for that time of year i wouldn't suggest this hotel as it is much further away then the main action. Your better of staying at oasis which is the main spring break hotel. But for a relaxing holiday it is just brilliant. They also had hammocks outside nearly every room which is a nice (and comfy) touch! The entertainment is not great. But then again i'm 22 and was there to party so i wasn't gonna enjoy watching fire dancers etc.The one bad thing is that if your hungry in the middle of the night your only choice is hotdogs and salad and dry pizza. Please believe i never touched that! They have a spa which is free to use (obviously not the personal treatments) but its split into mens and womans which is annoying seeing as i was alone with 4 of my guy friends. Tried to sneak in but got caught 10 minutes in lol. Make sure you go to chitchenitza... INCREDIBLE. I went on my own as nobody wanted the 12 hour day. But it was 100% worth it. Got some incredible cheap silver jewelry. Pure silver necklace for like 20 quid. And its beautiful. Make sure u take a stack of dollars for tipping as over there they actually ask you for it as its expected. DO NOT GET CABS IF YOU DON'T HAVE TO. Its only a dollar or 20 pesos for the bus. And its got a stop right outside the hotel and the buses are air conditioned as well. Wherever you are in mexico, when out and about look after your belongings as my friends money got stolen out of their bag on the bus. I would definitely return to this hotel!!!
