We loved it! We weren't sure what to expect after the negative comment posted, but they were so wrong! Especially enjoyed the 'hidden away' feeling of really being in the Mexican jungle, yet right on the beach. We didn't do any diving but had a great time. There is plenty of exploring to do in the surrounding area, fly fishing, and visiting the shops in the town of Mahahual. For those just wanting to relax, hanging out at the estate pool was a great opportunity to do that. No big crowds like the large resorts farther north. The owners and staff were very focused on insuring we were comfortable and enjoying our trip. Food was excellent! We were able to dine on local cuisine all week. No worries about drinking the water, it is made fresh as the resort. Will definitely be back and recommend to other, divers or not.
