Just returned from a weeks all inclusive break over Christmas. Hotel rooms very good, modern, and extremely clean. We had 2 single beds, which were quite hard, and the pillows not great...but they never are!! Rooms comes with safe, tea making facilities, fridge (V useful) &tv (only small) with 4 x English speaking channels, We had a large, walk in shower, which was excellent, there was also a hairdryer provided.
The view from our room wasn't too bad Room 1249), bit of a sea view, but directly in front of us was door to another room, not idea-however, we did get some sun on the balconyl! We asked if there was a chance to change the room, which they showed us another the day after we arrived which had a better view, more private, however, this was over the garden to the back of the hotel, and we didn't think it would get any sun-also it would have costed more, so we stayed where we were. Overall we were happy with the room, but it would have been better on a higher floor.
The staff are all very friendly, and always try to help if possible.
This is not a large hotel, even though it is called a village, and is based in Playa De Los Poccilos. We had never been here, and it was only a 10-15min walk in Playa Del Carmen, however, there were a small amount of shops, supermarket & restaurants closer. If youre stopping here-I would say it is best to be either AI of Half Board, unless you don't mind walking. However, the walking here is pretty good-its quite flat, and is a nice area. The beach directly opposite the hotel is huge & lovely.
The entertainment & choice of food I would say is the only thing that lets this hotel down. There is only 1 restaurant, which is buffet style. We never had trouble finding something to eat, but I would think a 4* hotel, would have had at least 1 other choice for eating. With there only being 1 restaurant this did get a little busy at times, and we were part of a group of 8, so sometimes we were unable to all eat together (however, where the staff could help, they did). We were there for xmas day-and the hotel really tried to make it special. They festively dressed all the tables, and had candles etc on each one. The food, again, was buffet on xmas day-but with a good choice, freshly carved turkey, whole salmon, huge fresh prawns etc. The only let down was the lack of veg-a minor grumble.
The entertainment, I would say was pretty poor. There is only 1 room to watch the entertainment, which subsequently gets very full quite early. There is the usual kids mini disco, then the main entertainment. This wasn't very good-we watched 1, then didn't bother again. If you want a quite holiday, this is a good place, as the bar shuts at 12.00pm, and pretty much everyone disappears by then (if they even last that long). At one point, our group of 8 at 11.30 were almost the last ones in the bar!!
The pool area is lovely, with a good secure barrier around the pool (would stop anyone accidently falling in!). There is a also a jacuzzie, (which was heated), so this was the only thing we used, however, we did see some brave souls in the pool. There are plenty of beds (although not the comfiest!!), which a good choice of areas to put them in, either close to the pool, or in smaller,more secluded areas.
We could have stopped in the Riu next door, but this would have costed another £100 each for the week, I don't think if it would have been worth the extra, we were more that happy with our choice. Would we go again - yes, definately, if the price is right. This is a good hotel, not in a really busy location, but within easy access of plenty to do if required.
Towels are provided, for a deposit, and changed twice weekly.
