Nice gym, bad staff

The gym is really well equipped. A bit expensive: 300 pesos for one visit. The staff at the reception is not friendly or helpful at all!

My husband and I just returned from a great stay in Playa del Carmen. Each morning we started our day with a workout at The Gym. The Gym offers good workout equipment, classes and nice atmosphere. The energy there is young and positive. Our last day we had a late flight and an early check out. Rather than waste our... More

I was staying at El Taj and this gym was free to visit for all guests. It is a very nice gym and much nicer than your typical hotel workout room. It was spacious with all of the free weights, nautilus and aerobic machines that you would need.

I really enjoyed my workout at The Gym tonight! There were many people, but plenty of equipment to go around. I went to a boot camp class and it completely kicked my butt. I was impressed my the variety of classes that were taking place at the same time- cycling, kickboxing, and boot camp were all taking place at the... More

I'm not sure if this many beautiful bodies preening in the mirror is motivating or mortifying. Equipment in so so shape, great classes and buff trainers. NO sanitizer anywhere and no one wipes down equipment. EVER. Bring Purell. Best in town though so bring your own sanitizer.

Take Regina's class! I highly recommend it, do not feel intimidated. She is a great instructor. She explains everything really well and the workout is amazing! You will feel awesome afterwards!

We worked out at the Gym for the month of September. Great facility. Nice selection of machines, and weights. I trained with Carlos a personal.trainer at The Gym, he was outstanding. Pushed me hard to be stronger. I'm looking forward to returning in a week and continuing my workouts at the gym.
