Amazing Vacation

Great staff, beautiful place. The snorkeling at the Xcaret park was so cool and we saw a huge stingray while doing it. The swim up bar at the pool was awesome as well, enjoyed Pedro, he was great! Must go, we will be back!

The resort is definitely beautifully thought out and planned. You literally feel like you’re in the jungle with the monkeys in the trees, iguanas on the pavements, and all the birds throughout the resort. My issue is with the room, the sheets were not changed up until we noticed and complained, and even then we were 5 days into our stay. The “mini bar”, was sub par and the drinks were not always replenished, they only provided us with TWO daily towels and our family was composed of FOUR, so we scrambled for towels and had to pay for extra. We had to pay for WiFi too, which is ludicrous seeing that we payed for an all inclusive resort, you’d think it’d be included. The food from the buffet was not good, the beach club restaurant was the one we went to when we had a chance and most of the time we went into Xcaret and had to pay for the restaurants there and return during the night when the resort specialty restaurants opened, and even then we had to wait over 30 minutes. The shows were amazing and the staff was nice most of the time, except the girls in the Xcaret stores, which weren’t so friendly. There’s a lot to do, we stayed for a week and boredom never struck, if you don’t like to walk, this isn’t the resort for you, as everything is spaced out and maze like.
* A huge thank you to MARK, over in the information booth, he was a huge help throughout our stay. He went above and beyond and showed us around the resort, when we were “lost” he walked us to our destination, gave us information on the expansion of the resort, let us know about the beach club, made sure that we had what we needed in our room, and was very attentive to our needs throughout our stay. Definitely made our overall experience that much better, gracias por toda la ayuda it really made a difference!

Beautiful Resort

Super nice resort with lots of wildlife. The lagoon was incredible. Fun and refreshing, nice for our 11 year old too. We saw a lot of sea life while snorkeling. We had a large group and the staff was very accommodating. Looking forward to our next trip!
