Without any hesitation I would highly recommend this resort. I must admit that I did a fair amount of research before booking this resort, which also included visiting local forums and asking lots of questions. With absolute honesty, I can say this property far exceeded my/our expectations. We stayed at the resort from Mach 16th until the 23rd. We had... More

This was a wonderful resort about 20 km south of Playa del Carmen. I highly suggest you upgrade to a privileged package. The room, although, not huge, was lovely. The KS bed was very comfortable, unlike many Mexican beds. The room was spotless and everyday we would be greeted with a cute little towel sculpture. The bathroom had a lovely... More

This was our second trip to this resort. Good value for money. We did notice that the service has declined slightly. The small rooms definitely need upgrading. We stayed in the "privileged" suites which are fantastic.

This was our second stay here in 3 years. It's a beautiful resort. On our first trip I felt there were a lot of service issues that would cause me to rate this resort at less than 4 stars. This trip did nothing to change my mind. In fact it was worse. This is one of those places where you... More

My mother booked this trip for the two of us, having stayed at the resort twice before. After reading some of the reviews prior to travelling, I was a bit aprehensive about what the place would be like. I'm not sure if the people who have written poor reviews simply have outlandish expectations that can never be met, or whether... More
