The resort is even better than the pictures! Ask the locals and they will tell you that this and Mayakoba are the two best resorts in Playa del Carmen, the only real difference is the all inclusive at Grand Velas. The food is worth every penny. Each meal tastes better than the last, all of the restaurants are delicious. We traveled with an 8 year old that learned to scuba in the pool thru the daily beach/pool activities and loved it. The guys in charge of the activites are great, especially Alfredo. Take the eco tour- it's about an hour and you will be able to see their gardens and taste the mint they grow as the garnish in their cocktails. The kids club at Zen is small and quiet- perfect for kids who like to play x-box,do crafts, lego's or watch a movie- Ambassador kids club is crazier with lots of kids. As for the rooms, we had the plunge pool which looks nice but is freezing and not worth the x-tra money because you cannot get in it. The "jungle" view is quite pretty, with lots of nice birds to view and very quiet. Mini bar is stocked daily with your favorites from beer to oreo's, just a nice touch. The Spa is one of the best in the world. The only draw back, there are not a ton of activities if the weather is not good for beach/pool- I would suggest and excersion for that day - downtown Playa del Carmen is very nice, totally safe- cute cafe's and kitchy shops. Can't wait to go back!
