This hotel is clean and well kept up. There is always something going on activity wise and always a variety of nightly entertainment to choose from.

Absolutely brilliant we will go again. The local animal life was fascinating. As there are three hotels make sure you try for akumal or tulum as coba is a long way from the beach and we prefer the sea and the beach. Food and drink were excellent and service was above expectations.
