This property basically offers you to enjoy the beauty of nature and the beach in the absolute best way possible. I will never forget waking up to monkeys in my balcony and the other wild life that are literally roaming freely through the hotel!

The location of this property was great. We loved being right next door to Xcaret and benefitted from the unlimited pass. The property itself was pretty tired. The food was ok but we got tired of it by about the 3rd day. The speciality restaurants were better than the buffets! We received a $920 resort credit when we booked but it turned out that it was just a bunch of coupons and not a credit at all. Our room was a little mildewy (as many hotel rooms in tropical locations are) but that smell is still not out of our clothes 10 days after returning. We couldn’t adjust our air below 22 degrees and that was too warm and uncomfortable for us. Many of the shops on site are vacant. The larger pool was definitely a party pool and not great for families. Finally, it was difficult to obtain seats at the beach and the pool ... when we finally did find seating up the hill from the beach we were asked to leave because we didn’t have the correct bracelet (time share sales people were abundant & aggressive). In general, the property could use a facelift. Our main attraction was Xcaret and we enjoyed our time there and the convenience of being next door. However, I wish we would also have looked into the other Xcaret hotel and we would not return to this property.

The property was exceptional with many activities to do and the large pools were great. However I asked for a room closer to the room my grandchildren and father were staying in but ended up the opposite end of the resort. A lot of walking and stairs since they put me on the 3rd floor with no elevator. I am 75. Also the key code did not work three times so I had to walk back to the lobby and have it re-keyed. One day as I was getting out of the shower, in walks a couple into my room. There key opened my door! This was unacceptable as I told the front desk.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and the staff. The friendliness and professionalism was exceptional. The atmosphere and freedom of choice was exemplary. The location and amenities could not be beat. I would recommend this resort to anybody and everybody. The opportunities for adventure nearby were endless. The entertainment at night involved a lot of local culture. Mexico and Mexicans Should be very proud of what they have to offer in culture, natural beauty and friendliness. Be sure to experience the adventure park in titled X Plor. Also, the X Caret park and show at night from 7 to 9 PM. The entire staff from the cleaning crew to security to hospitality are smiling at all times. I have to say it was really hard to go back into the real world after spending a week at this hotel.
