One of the biggest selling points of this hotel is the food. The 6 restaurants offer fantastic variety to suit every taste and the food is great quality - refreshing for a 'resort' hotel! We particularly liked Las Ventanas which serves really creative dishes.
The hotel feels very friendly - the staff were attentive and fantastic and because the rooms are split up into 'villas' it doesn't feel too big. There is also the advantage of 3 smaller pools located away from the main pool where you can have a quieter swim.
This resort doesn't have the loud music and drinking games of some of its neighbours but its atmosphere suited us well as we were travelling as a couple. It would be perfect for honeymooners for this reason.
The location is good - a lovely beach - but if you are staying here with the hope of walking to Playa del Carmen (and/or the ferry crossing to Cozumel) then be aware it is a good 25 minute walk down a hotel lined road in the heat.
