In the Area
In addition to the beach activities, All Ritmo Cancún Resort and Waterpark is a 15-minute drive from Cancún’s tourist center, where plenty of shops and restaurants are located. A longtime favorite is La Habichuela, known for Caribbean seafood and Mexican specialties. For a daytrip from the hotel, the legendary pre-Columbian city of Chichen Itza is 120 miles from the property and is one of the best examples of Mayan architecture in the world. There are more than 10 world class golf courses nearby, or for a different type of outdoor adventure, Laguna Nichupte offers a chance to view wildlife and natural ecosystems.
How to Get There
We just returned from out vacation at All Ritmo Cancun Resort and the family had a great time! Initially when we pulled up to the resort I was like OMG what have we done. It was obvious the resort was old and the curb side appeal was not the best, however we decide to keep an open mind and not just a book by its cover. Well, I'm glad we did because the resort may be old but they make up for it in other ways. Our room (jr suite with ocean view) was nice and clean with modern decor and colors. The bed itself was not the most comfortable but we made due. The resort is truly a "family" resort with lots to do for kids. My 10 & 15 year old boys had a blast. There were pool activities, kids club, games, snorkeling, kayaking, water park, miniature golf,theater shows and more! There was always something for them and the adults to do. The food was mostly buffet style which worked great for the kids and it was not too bad. During the breakfast buffet they also had an omelet station making freshly prepared omelets. Also, if you did not want buffet style food, they also had 3 restaurants (mexican, italian, and seafood) that provided 4 course meals which were pretty good, but you have to make a reservation for them.
The pool area was ok, but they needed more seating. The beach was ok because they were battling seaweed, which was not their fault. They did their best to keep it under control daily. Their beach was not luxurious by any means, but they have done the best they could with what they have and they have an ample supply of beach chairs, tables, cabana beds, etc. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and seemed to always go out of their way to make sure you were happy. During the day, the pool bar provided drinks (not the expensive stuff of course) and the grill next to the pool provided hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, and pizza to keep your stomach full. The only thing I didn't like is that they had no staff waiting on guest laying out by the pool or beach, you had to get up for everything you wanted.
All in all my family had a good time. If you are looking to party non-stop this is not the resort for you. However, if you have a family and you are looking for a true family resort then this is the place for you!!!!! I tell my boys all the time, DONT JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER.......this time I learned that valuable lesson.
Fun activities in the pool every evening. Everyone is very nice. Food SUCKS !!!!! Everything else was great but the food was not good at all. Fun for families and individuals. DJ skills could use improvement. I’ll definitely come back to All Ritmo in the future.
I will try to make this fact filled. Buy the VIP package, but do NOT do so when you originally book. When we got to the hotel, we were offered the VIP package for $50 per night instead of the $150 that was offered when we originally booked.
What the VIP package got us was:
1) a room on the beach which had a stocked refrigerator (beer soft drinks and water instead of just two bottles of water.
2) premium alcohol in addition to the local liquors (but only at lobby bar on 2nd floor)
3) the ability to book all of the premier restaurants all at once the first day instead of having to book each morning for that night. Apparently, several people never got to eat at the premier restaurants because they were all booked up. Also, if you get the VIP package (u have a gold band) you are definitely catered to first. This is also the case for people with black bands since they are with timeshares. I think some of the bad reviews are by people that got green bands and were treated as such. The restaurant we liked best was oysters. To give u an idea —it is a five corse meal. One night I got the following 1) octopus razor thin cut under a salad with basic stuff. 2) portobello mushroom soup. 3) Cesar salad 4) Steak in a cream sauce with shrimp, potato and zucchini. 5) cheese cake.
The water fun park was my granddaughter’s favorite part of her dream vacation, as it had about ten slides, 4 of which were a couple stories high. Lastly, the staff was very helpful and tried their best to speak in both English and Spanish when explaining activities/events. I can imagine it being difficult to include “everyone”, but they do their best. There are many locals who vacate this resort, but they make a conscious effort to explain and say announcements multiple times. In fact, during a performance of Lion King, at the end they invited all children on stage. During that time, my son brought our granddaughter up for pictures. She started crying and one of the actresses proceeded to pick her up, hold her, wipe her tears and give her a kiss on the cheek. Needless to say, the staff cares. 5 stars!!
