Let me start by saying I travel quite a bit and really not one to sweat the small stuff. I just have a lot of resorts to compare to and know what I like!
First impression checking in was not very good. Nobody was smiling...More
This may well be our favourite hotel in Mexico so far. We've just got back from two weeks there, never felt more relaxed.
First thing first - beach is incredible. Better than it looks in the pictures, perfect sand, great swimming, almost no boat traffic...More

Do not hesitate and GO! Food (5 restaurants + amazing buffets) is excellent, beach is beautiful with clean water and white sand. The staff is friendly and recognizes you as the resort has only 288 rooms.

I've paid extra for the privileged services and we had staff bringing us drinks. I'm not sure if the other side has the same service but there is a bar by the pool, really close to the beach that serves drinks and it was not crowded even though we were there on NYE and the place was packed. The hotel is really relaxing and it doesn't feel crowded at all. Most of the guests are couples, so if you are single and looking for a single scene it would not be very exciting, but you would NOT feel uncomfortable if you were with friends. The beach is amazing, and the hotel's grounds are really beautiful. I would recommend without a shadow of doubt. Does not feel like a huge place, it's much more intimate.

"All the rooms will bring you either closer to the lobby or closer to the beach, so there is no real advantage..."
