Just got back from the most amazing holiday to Cancun. This hotel from start to finish was the perfect place to stay, and I would love to go back right now!!!
It is not the most modern hotel in the world, and the lifts are a bit annoying, but apart from that this place is faultless and these things are easily forgotten when everything else is perfect.
Room was a good size, and was always very clean, as was the rest of the hotel.
I was worried that I wouldn't like the all inclusive buffet, but it was really fantastic - great quality and good variety. There are also three specialty restaurants - the Japanese, Rodizio, and Steak. The Japanese restaurant was lovely, the other two not as good as the buffet.
It really was all inclusive, you could not get hungry or thirsty in that place!
The staff were great, really helpful and kind and made this place special. The entertainment staff were good fun, and work so hard to make sure everyone has a great time right from early in the morning to late at night with poolside entertainment, and then evening shows, and then trips to the nightclubs in Cancun.
There are four swimming pools to choose from, all of which are lovely. One is used mainly for entertainment and is where all the action is during the day, the others are more chilled out. One is a bar inside the swimming pool, so you can keep cool and drink cocktails all day! The beach was great too.
As the clocks went back whilst we were there, we lost an hour of sunshine each day. Most of the sunbathing areas are shaded by about 2.30 pm, you do need to get out early to have a full tanning session. But not sure what it's like the rest of the year.
Could go on for ages about how much I loved this place. Ignore the bad reviews. This place is perfect for any type of holiday, whether you want to chill out, to have fun etc.
The location was excellent, only 5 minutes walk to all the bars - Coco Bongos, Senor Frogs, Dady'Os etc...
