“I was here in December for the wedding of my long time best friend. It’s a medium sized resort split into two different concepts. One thing I loved about it was the natural space they kept in the middle of the property. Lots of trees and native species to photograph. Overall the food and service were good, it’s got a deep and long beach and it was clean. we It’s also, as many resorts in the area are, a quick trip to Playa del Carmen for a day or night out.” – Eric B. 3/19
“My wife and I had the greatest time. The beach is beautiful and most days the water was clear enough to see the bottom. The hotel was excellent! All of the hotel staff were friendly, the food is excellent, the rooms were clean and comfortable. Our favorite part of the morning was the jungle outside of our balcony. Nearly every day we would find monkeys playing in the treetops as we would sit on our private balcony. I must say the perfect day is sleeping in, eating whenever we want and as much as we want, laying out on the beautiful beach and enjoying the sun. We can’t wait to go back. Loved every minute of it. There are several full day and half day excursions available nearby and shopping within walking distance. I give it 5 stars in every category.” – David L. 2/19
“Wonderful experience, my wife and I were here for Christmas. Very nice people, excellent attention to details, great service. Several restaurants to choose from, not all buffets. Superior value for an all inclusive. Beach, food and access to tours (on your own dime) make this a repeat destination.” – David L. 1/19
