“Very beautiful beaches”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel before and "LOVED IT". There is plenty of things for everyone of all ages to do,the second time around it looked like they added an area for children which is a great improvement if you have them. Staff are friendly,food is good but beaches are amazing.

Room Tip: Coba is not directly on the beach so you might need to choose one of the other hotels for this.

We recently went and had an amazing time. We spent a week and it was not long enough. We felt welcomed and taken care of from the very beginning. Food was great. The a la cart restaurants were fantastic, especially the Japanese. Nightly dancing after dinner that our two boys (8 & 6) could enjoy, too. Free daily child care as needed and a kids water park to top it off. We will be going back again very soon.

Stay in the Golden upgraded section. It has it's own private pool and breakfast/lunch buffet. Love the trolley system and the cleaning of the resort. Great value. LOTS of food choices and snacks until midnight. Akumal is the best of the 3 in my opinion.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Golden Section

Been there 3 times and loved it more each time. The place is just beautiful. Staff is very accommodating, the buffet is excellent, and choice of a la carte is unbelievable. Can't wait to return. The last time time we went we had friends come with us and they could not believe how wonderful the place was. If you like being closer to the beach you also can stay at the Akumal or the Tulum. You are also able to eat at either one. Beautiful resort can't say enough

My wife and kids were on hols here between 15th August to 29th August 2013 and found it to be fantastic. We did have a couple of minor issues along the way but these were all sorted out well.

Firstly, on arrival, we found that the room on our documents was not available due to the tropical storm that had just happened. As such ended up in a different one in Block 1 which was a great location for the pool, premier lobby and bar and 24hr snack bar.

Room was cleaned well every day and mini bar was restocked on a daily basis with water, Sprite, Coke, Diet Coke, Tango and Beer.

Buffet restaurants were all very good with a great range of food obviously good and fresh. A la cartes were all good with the exception of El Pescardor where the service was poor and the food arrived cold. We complained about this to the Guest Relations people and they happily organised an extra A la carte to make up for this - we chose the Mexican restaurant and it was great.

Beach is great for snorkelling - loads of fish to see. Took a Hobie Cat out three times, just signed up on the day and came back a couple of hours later at the right time.

Great service in all the bars, you could see the bar staff were busy but if you waited your turn then they got to you and produced some great drinks.

Trolley carts ran everywhere to drop you around the site as it is fairly large (although definitely still walkable).

Some reviews on this site have said that you had to tip to get great service - Not true at all - I never felt pressured to tip and got great service from everyone whether we tipped or not.

Did the Virgin ahoy trip which is basically a visit to the Dolphins in Dolphin Discovery followed by a boar trip. Had a great time feeding the manatees, meeting the sea lions and being with the dolphins - photo package was expensive but worth it. The boat trip part in the afternoon was a bit pointless as we drove around in a big circle and then stopped to snorkel just 10 minutes away from where we had started off from!

Took a taxi a new miles up the road to Akumal Beach and snorkelled with turtles there. Also had two dives there with Natalie (dive trainer and leader) which were fantastic. Saw loads of fish at 15m down including a seahorse and swam with a turtle for 5 minutes as well.

Took the hotel's trip 'Tulum Express' as well as this was $30 compared to the Virgin price for $48 dollars. Minibus took us to the ruins before practically anyone else was there, 3/4 hour guided tour in English and then an hour and a half on the Beach before heading back. Great trip!

The guest relations people in the Premier lobby assisted with a couple of other things as well and I found them, as well as all the other staff, to be very friendly and helpful.

Overall, great holiday and will very likely be going again.
