Read too many negative reviews- if you are prepared for a big resort, it is lovely. We are beach people so we spent most of the time at Tulum beach and pool. Activities and food were great. Snorkling is easy, you can see the fish without the snorkle.

This resort was absolutely amazing. I don't usually care to go back to the same place twice, but I can't wait to go back here.

This is a wonderful resort. The food at the buffet is always plentiful and excellent. The Mikado is my favourite a la carte!! Certainly worthy trying to get a reservation for the show but the food is excellent all the same. The beach is great for swimming and the pools are full of activity.
