Reviewed yesterday NEW

It was already our 5th time visiting this resort in addition to vacationing at the El Cid in Mazatlan for many years. The kids love to jump from the cliff and swim in the large pool. We adults enjoy the excellent service and food. Everyone in the resort is super friendly and we feel like coming home, since the staff...

Great resort and staff. Beach is rocky but restaurants and pool are great, My kids loved the cliff and the swim up bar. The buffet line was a bit long and cumbersome. I would go back here again in the future.

So we have never been to Playa del Carmen or Cancun this was our first experience and we picked a great hotel. Facility was clean and kept clean, service was good as well. The food was good overall specially for an all inclusive. Would recommend for families to visit!

The resort is beautiful, grounds are very well maintained, room very clean, comfortable and well stocked, most of the staff is excellent (our butler, Carlos, has been very present, kind and helpful) and the food is good, but they have a big problem with the beach. If I could rate separately resort and beach, the resort would be 4 or...

The beach was not good for swimming. There were so many rocks and so much seaweed. Food were not very good, not many options. Worst thing was that you have to pay for the lost room keys and towel keys. They didn't cost much, but they made you feel very uncomfortable when you were in an all inclusive resort. We...

This resort is so beautiful. The food and customer service is amazing. I loved the rooms facing the ocean they are convenient and have a nice view. The only downfall was the beach. But he resort makes up for not being able to swim in the ocean. Would totally recommend this resort!😎😁🏖
