Amazing hotel on the beach - highly recommend

We've just returned after spending 10 nights at this beautiful resort and would go back in a heart beat. The highlights were their fabulous staff.... restaurant staff really look after you... butler service was very professional allowing us to book a la carte restaurants, order room service, provide clean beach towels as often as you need...beautiful rooms, meticulously clean, massive swimming pools and safe areas to swim on the beach!!
The resort is huge, taking in 4 massive separate hotels but a golf buggy service is provided to get you around which is fabulous.
There are loads of pool options, we used the infinity pool and the quiet pool during our stay. Our only criticism would be more parasols would help as a lot of these beds were reserved by 9am, even though the hotel doesn't allow this!
Food is very very good whether you choose the buffet restaurants or eat a la carte (Arlequin was exceptional fine dining and superb service). Again our only criticism would be the lack of air conditioning in the restaurants and in the public spaces generally. As we visited in rainy season the bugs were out in force so if you go at this time of year make sure you are protected with repellants... some places were worse than others... Koba hotel restaurants and Si'an Kaan were really bad.
In summary, this has been the best hotel we have stayed at and will definitely be returning (maybe at a different time of year)... thank you to all of the staff who made our holiday an absolute pleasure... Will miss Perpetuo serving us our champagne at breakfast!!


After reading some, shall we say, not very happy reviews we were starting to feel a little uneasy as we had not been to this area before. But from the time we arrived to the time we left every single member of staff from waiters to managers could not do enough to help you with every request and they all work very hard to keep everyone happy. This is a lovely place to relax and chill out. We stayed in block 83 in the adult only section and it was spot on. You could always get a sun bed on the beech anytime of the day and didn’t have to get up at sunrise as stated in some other reviews. So if you live in the real world you will have a great time.

Destination Wedding

My husband and I stayed here August 26th and yes it's a beautiful hotel. The wedding we attended was very nice. My only issues I had was the food at the buffet didn't have a good selection. Also the temperature of the food wasn't hot enough. Our room was great along with the daily maid services. We stayed at the adults only section and I would stay there again.
