“A wonderful hotel, definitely would recommend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2010

Stayed in this all inclusive hotel for 8 days in Sept 2010 and it well and truly exceeded our expectations. Hotel rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean, in fact the whole hotel is just so clean & well maintained. We had an ocean view room which costs a little extra but its worth it for the fab view. The hotel has several restaurants, the breakfast buffet in the the Albatros restaurant is excellent with loads of choice. Lunch times again there is a buffet, there a good choice again but after 8 days I must admit I was starting to get bored with it.
The staff in this hotel are excellent, so so friendly and so helpful. There is entertainment most nights in the lobby bar, some nights it was better than others but most nights it was enjoyable plus there is a great cocktail menu.
The hotel has by far the best beach facilities for its guests, lots of pagodas on the beach and the bar on the beach is great for those who like to sip on a cocktail whilst lying on the beach!
This is a family hotel so there were quite a few children there despite the fact that is was September, if you are not tolerant of children then I'd think twice about booking this hotel as sometimes its not so nice to go for a romantic meal and have to listen to a crying baby at the next table..
Overall I would definitely recommend this hotel, we had a wonderful holiday here.

My husband and I went to this resort for our 20th anniversary and could not have been happier. After months of researching hotels in cancun I chose this one because of the reviews I had read . We could not have been happier. The service was tops,the cleanliness was incredible,the food was good and the atmosphere was authentic. We walked the beach and realized our hotel was the only one with plenty of cabanas and chairs on the beach as well as the pool.There were palm trees everywhere which other hotels did not have.The hotel was open air from the moment we walked in,there was no door,just open.Plentyof restaurant choices and if you wanted to be entertained poolside there was plenty of that too.The staff was very friendly and efficient.We plan to take our kids with us, in two years because there is alsoplenty for kids to do.We look forward to going back to this resort and would suggest it to everyone!

What a great place, really enjoyed my stay there. firstly the negatives, the pool gets a bit too busy at times, the entertainment doesnt last long enough, the check in is a bit of a mess. Now the positives, excellent food, staff, location, beach , room, childrens pools and an overall excellent holiday. The staff really will do anything for you and the place is spotless.I will return in the next few years.

Hi,
Stopped here for a week at the end or August 2010, with my husband and 2 girls 18 and 8.
What can I say.......
Rooms... Good sized with 2 double beds. Bathroom was a good size and very nice. Fridge in the room which is re filled each day and 4 optics boxed on the wall. Coffee making facility also. The room was cleaned and beds made each day to a high standared. We booked for a lagoon view, but were very pleased to find that we had ended up with a sea view, how lucky were we!

Food.... There are quite a few dfferent places in the hotel to eat that are included in the "all inclusive" One of them you have to book, but we did not go to that one as we were more than happy in the others, But I must say that the meal in the Steak house was fantastic! There was pleanty to choose from. My youngest daughter is very fussy but even she found plenty to eat. There is a 24 hour food bar that you could help yourself to at any time and my daughter loved their burgers!

Pool..... There are a few pools. The main large one, then a smaller one on the oppersite side with a pirate ship next to it and then 2 large water slides. The pools were very clean with plenty of things going on.

Hotel..... This is a great hotel for a great price. You can not fault the cleanliness as there was always people cleaning all aspects of the hotel. The staff could not have been more helpfull and friendly. There was a gym but we did not use this so I can not comment on it. There is a shop inside that sells allsorts and to me it was a life saver as my feet were killing me and I got the most cumfy pair of shoes that I wore for most of the week! There was also entertainment but we only managed to get to one show which was good, but I can not comment on he others.

There was loads going on around with trips, snorkeling, swimming with dolphins etc which were all fantastic! The location of the hotel was also great being roughly in the middle of cancun strip, so close to all the shops and clubs, which were in walking distance.

To sum it all up, it was a fantastic holiday, at a fantastic hotel and at a fantastic price! Would I return..... definatly yes! The weather was also fantastic with only about 5 mins of rain in total. The only one complaint we had was the room service that never appeared.

Gran Caribe Real is the best hotel i have ever stayed in, they have a large variety of restaurants, and choices of food. the rooms are cleaned everyday, & well the entertainment staff are lovely . they are - miguel, jerry, andoni, andrea, bierley, omar and danny i think thats all of them "/, they are round the pool all day making sure you have a good day with things to do and then they present the show on a night with fab dancers from the hotel. they all work so so so hard and so long hours but are always up there bright and early giving there full attention to everyone around the pool making people happy, they are the most nicest amazingest people i have ever met and i hope to be back for a 2nd time next year and hope the entertainment staff dont forget us :D & we will miss you all, The bar staff and the waitresses are so kind and just cant do enough for you. & they have room service which was very good for us... well to be honest people overall this hotel is just fab, everything is, & wil hopefully see you again soon, xxx kayleigh, courtney, theresa & wayne

Kudo's to Continental tours,from transportation from airport to rose petals on bed@Gran Caribe Real, the food,drink, & view were spectacular. Sevices was impecable. easy to get around and safe. Do watch out for the Scottish, they tend to pilfer the booze fron your in room bar. It was worth it to find out that Nessi is an abberition, just a tourist ploy. It doesn't matter we love the Scottish. Ha ha. Even the bands in the lobby bar were good. Reserve an Ocean Front room or upgrade to it upon arrival. Opening your curtains every morning to see nothing except ocean is worth the extra money. My lovely wife informed me that the spa was absolutely deilghtful. From her mood after this spa I REALLY recommend it to every husband, boyfriend, significant other, etc.
