As other reviewers mentioned, the property is beautiful and well kept. Rooms could use some upgrades (bathroom, TV). The main negative for us was the food: buffet restaurants had limited variety and menu basically did not change from one day to the other. Quality of the food also was far from what we expected: most of the food had no flavor and everything was poorly presented. Last year we stayed at Grand Palladium Kantenah and food was way better. They could use a couple more cooks preparing omelettes during breakfast and past at lunch instead of leaving a single cook struggling to attend everybody and creating long lines. The a-la-carte restaurants were not better: not many alternatives and same lack of flavors (we tried Trattoria, Mexico Lindo and Kyoto). Most of the desserts looked like they came straight from a box. Drinks weren't great either, with only local low-end liqueur available. Since most of the guests are international, it would be good to have staff that speaks English (even communicating with Guest Service was a challenge unless you speak some Spanish). Too many things not included in the all-inclusive package which ends up being annoying.

The view and the cleanliness of the hotel is awesome! The staff very helpful! Although the buffet food was absolutely horrible! It was a different theme but same food. You could tell it had been sitting there awhile. Not much flavor. It had a lot of different food that I noticed not a lot of people ate. The snack bar was better than the buffet. The restaurant had very good food, there wasn’t a fair warning to let us know they book up fast so that was an issue. The bugs were everywhere I know it’s an open resort but I don’t think they did much spraying to help prevent so many. I would recommend this resort if the food wasn’t so bad. Thats honestly what will stop my family and I from coming back. While purchasing the package we were also not told about having to pay for the bowling or water park or mini golf. They put it out to be as if it is all inclusive online. Then once you get there it’s very expensive for even a family of four to enjoy an activity. Beautiful place they need better details and food.

Wonderful Experience

Pros: The resort was huge, there were plenty of pools, rooms were clean, staff was very nice and most of the shows at night were very good.
Cons: Pool at our area was very quiet, could use music. 3 shows at night are all at the same time. Times should be staggered so that you could see 2 shows.
Location: We did not leave the resort.
The hotel was very pleasing, the beach at the Barceló Maya Beach area was very nice, other locations were very rocky. The grounds were beautiful, the pools were clean and very nice. The food at the specialty restaurants was excellent, otherwise it was just OK. The resort is huge, has its own mall, bowling alley, water park, dolphin park, and casino. Most shows at the theaters were very good and you had three shows each night to choose from. I would definitely return to this resort.

Would definitely stay there again!

Pros: All the hotels felt beachfront and pool front. You weren't on the 12th floor of a hotel which is 100 yards from the pool.
Cons: Maintenance on the rooms was a little lacking - our safe didn't work properly, the screen door was torn, sliding door didn't lock.
Location: Almost everything you need to on-site - Dolphin Show, small mall, bowling, mini-golf, lots of pools, close beach, tour companies to schedule excusions
It was a great vacation. I have a 4 year old who loves pools and water slides. This place was perfect for that. We upgraded to the Premium Level which was worth the money. Our room was great - spacious, comfortable, great view, hot tub on balcony - however there were some odd maintenance issues (the hot tub knobs were broken, certain #s on the safe didn't work, etc), but those didn't ruin our trip. The food was pretty good (comparable to Beaches resorts) and the staff was very helpful. Getting restaurant reservations was an issue for some people but we ate early so not a big deal for us. The resort was sold out but didn't feel crowded which was nice. All the hotels are basically, beach-front and pool front. The beach has the softest sand. I remember the water being clearer in Cancun but still better than most. Everything that you need is onsite - Dolphin Show daily, mini-golf, bowling. Overall, we would gladly stay there again.

Last but not least, it fills us with pride that you could enjoy the gastronomical efforts of our chefs as we strive to satisfy the many culinary wishes of our guests offering the most delicious international and local dishes. Thank you again for this heartwarming review of your stay with us, we look forward to your next visit. Regards

Great Mega Resort

Pros: The kind staff and service. Super clean!! Beautiful grounds!
Cons: Better teen centered activities. My teens disappointed in this.
Location: Cenotes Azul, Cristobel and Chicken Ha. Tulum quick Collectivo away.
Quick check-in! Great ala carte restaurants. Buffets didn't care for. Always found something to eat though. Can we as big or small as you want it to be. Walked out of hotel wing straight to pool on one end and lobby the other. If you want to explore the other hotels, you can. Loved you can walk from your room to buffet and the mall completely covered in case it rains. Cannot even get a drink at Palace. Knew you could not eat there but after the long walk down there, we thought we could get a coke at least. Not sure if you are allowed to use their pools but we did. Missed out on water activities. Ocean too rough for water bikes, paddle boarding and kayaks. They DO NOT take you out on hobby cats like other resorts; use have to do it yourself. That left us out! Snorkeling was okay. Maybe for novices. Didn't see much fish. A lot of dead coral. Snorkeled way out too. Didn't see turtles even at different times of day down by Palace. I am sure if the weather was affected, it would have been great. Entertainment, okay. A lot of similar acts. Loved the fact they have a mall for shopping and also outdoor market type shopping. Cenotes across street were great visit! Walk there. Used the hotel bus once to try it out to go to Palace. Quicker to walk there. Pluses...bath products...shampoo, conditioner, body wash dispenser, small tube of toothpaste, a toothbrush, shoe shine kit, sewing kit, vanity kit, slippers, robes, snacks and plenty of drinks.
