I stayed in h10 resort in mexico so i was expecting the same quality. Unfortunately, our room was old, bathroom leaking and the beach was so small and staff was unattentive. Also harrashment from timeshare staff and excurstion people constantly. Even food in the resort was dissappointing. Also had a late flight and they did try to accomodate late checkout.

We enjoyed the variety of food options and never had a bad meal. Staff were very energetic and friendly. Great pool options. One of the large pools had more activities and entertainment throughout the day while the other large pool was a bit quieter. Only thing that really bugged us was the time share presentation pressures and other individuals selling their "experience activities" and activities but I found if you were considerate, honest and got to know the individuals (same people every day) after a day they would just come up and chat and ask if we were having a good vacation. Not a big deal, just be aware.

1 star! Terrible! Make sure your bring another bag with food! Worst food ever! Staff is on their own schedule and pretend not to understand english! They force you to eat at their buffet restaurant for breakfast and lunch and only offer the others at dinner.Atmosphere is like spring break for 18 year old kids. If you want to relax, go to another hotel!

I have never been to a resort as terrible as this one. At check-in we were given the wrong type of key to open our door. However the concierge at our building was able to get someone to open our door to let us in to wait for our luggage. Once the door was open the mold/mildew smell about knocked us down. Immediately we noticed that our beds had no comforter/blankets only sheets. Once our luggage arrived I walked to the front office to get the key situation correct. After going back to the room I informed our concierge at our building that we needed blankets. He made a call and told us to go to dinner and that we would have blankets upon our return. We returned from dinner and no blankets. So I called the front and asked for blankets. After 30 minutes still no blankets, so I called again at that time we realized we had no wash cloths so I requested them also. A lady arrived shortly after with wash cloths but told us there were no blankets. This was not acceptable I called back down to the office for a 3rd time and told them this was unacceptable and to find us some blankets. A few minutes later a lady arrived with blankets. Moving on to day 2, they would not leave us alone about the time share after telling them NO several times. I reluctantly wasted 1 hour of my vacation listing to their spill on buying into their time share. Buffet food is not that great, restaurants are ok. I would not recommend this resort.

The hotel was nice once - 15 years ago! Since then, they have not fixed anything. Whatever is broken or need a refresh, will not be fixed! Fridge in the room does not work, the vanity mirror was hanging from the wall, something was heavily dripping water from the ceiling in the bathroom. All the rooms smell like mold. And I tried 3! The staff is awful! Never smile and "hate" you. Service is terrible. I gave up on asking blankets, the missing remote control, etc. The hotel "ruined" my vacation time. It was horrible!
