Everything was great at this hotel. The drive from the airport was an hour and a half from the hotel. Having to take a bus everywhere sucked but the wait wasn't that long.

We vacationed at this location early April 2013. The resort is very well kept and looks like paradise. Although some rooms seem far from the beach you can get there by shuttle in just minutes. We had no problems getting chairs for 4 at the beach. The water was beautiful and although many locations in Riviera Maya have rocky shores...
