No resort is perfect in every way, and that includes the Sian Kaan. We had a penthouse room. Only one air conditioner worked properly, the roof had a small leak, the restocking of the minibar was poor, and it could be furnished with a small dresser for socks, underwear and the like. Due to the sparse furnishings, there is a lack of sound absorbtion which is really noticeable when the music playing in the lobby resonates through the room. The maids were exceptional and made every attempt to clean the rooms early.
The buffet is very good with good variety. Breakfast tended to be repetitious, but lunch and diner were great. The two reservation restaurants were exceptional, and I personally loved the food at Alux the international gourmet restaurant. The lamb was perfect.
The bartenders were great, the drinks good and service was perfect.
The beach was nothing to write home about and we spent most of our down time by the pool.
I prefer the beach at the resort we are staying in. We had to be shuttled to and fro from the Kaan. As a matter of fact, waiting for shuttles was a big turn off. No matter which of the 5 Bahia resorts you stay at, there are shuttles to everywhere else.
Overall, we had a relaxing trip and we woulde recommend the resort to anyone. Personally, I will try somewhere else closer to the beach.
