Modern interiors, alfresco lounges, infinity pools and slick restaurants bring some serious style to the all-inclusive concept of this private beachside resort. Each of the 433 suites features white-on-white decor offset by dark rattan and boxy wood furnishings, with marble Jacuzzi tubs for two and furnished balconies and terraces overlooking the Caribbean. Golfers of all levels can enjoy the free greens fees at the nearby Grand Coral Golf Course, while sun worshipers can lounge by the pristine beach, wade in more than 43,000 square feet of interconnected swimming pools and rejuvenate with hydrotherapy and treatments like a warm seaweed wrap at the 12,000-square-foot spa. With eight restaurants on-site, there’s little need to voyage far for a variety of tastes. Nosh on fine Mexican cuisine at El Patio, try the inventive French fare amid the whimsical décor at Bordeaux and nosh on fresh seafood at the al fresco Oceana.
In the Area
Cancun gets a bad reputation for body shots and foam parties, but there’s another side to this Caribbean party spot. Trek downtown to the Mercado 28, home to the city’s reviving art scene with boutiques, galleries and Mexican handicrafts. Choose the up-scale Yucatan cuisine at Labná (Margaritas 29), or tapas accompanied by live Mexican guitar at El Rincón wine bar (Calle Alcatraces 29). Make Isla Mujeres, a short boat ride away, your launch pad for a survey of the world’s second largest barrier reef. Here, beach dwellers roam barefoot on pristine white sand and swim up close to 20 impressive acres of base coral. Have the resort concierge arrange a direct transfer to the island, or board the Punta Sam ferry for just $3 (35 pesos), each way. The reef looks best on the island’s west coast, at Punta Nizuc National Park, where the coral is 125,000 years old. Of course, a trip to the Riviera Maya is not complete without seeing the ancient Mayan Ruins of Chichén Itza, the seaside structures of Tulum and the jungle-fringed peaks of Coba.
How to Get There
Perfect trip. GREAT FOOD! Barefoot Grill was fresh and different everyday for lunch. I gave this only 4 stars because the property, rooms, pools, and food was AMAZING. But there was a tad lack in the beach scene. Very rough beach out in water and the beach felt far away from everything because of the amount of pools everywhere. Perfect service & staff. Wonderful trip over all!!!!
Rooms are clean, hotel is well kept, good entertainment, excellent staff, try Roger's Jalapeno Margarita at the main Lobby, top shelf liquor is hard to find. The restaurant by the pool area has Argentinian meat you must try.
Trust me.... this resort has all the ingredients for a superb relaxing sunny getaway. The food, service and overall comfort were top shelf. The cleanliness, the friendly smiles and the attention to details are making a return visit very likely.
Let me start with my two complaints. First, check in was too slow and poorly staffed. Second, with the age of the resort our room had some minor repairs needed. The toilet seat was attached with only one bolt, we had no lights around our bed and one of the bathroom faucets was broken. I was not concerned that there were small repairs, it was that after reporting it to front desk nothing happened and when I returned to ask them to please get these issues fixed I was told that they had been done. I was asked to go to the room and wait for the maintenance man, I said no, I'm on holidays. It was finally fixed that day.
The good stuff.
Great food, super clean, many activities and cultural events. The very best part of the resort was the staff.
My favourite was Rodulpho at the Barracuda Bar. Excellent at his job, but also a very interesting man who shared his knowledge of the area its history and the language of the first people. Axel and Dylan wither the entertainment staff were exceptional. Dylan is wonderful at his job, and Axel is his perfect compliment. Daniel and Berenice at the concierge desk went beyond expectations to assist me with all my requests. Jose at the breakfast was fun, energetic and an amazing server. Finally the beach and pool service team were great. Tania always made sure we had a drink and water, thanks.
Unfortunately I had to head to Cancun for a business meeting so we added some fun into it. Staff was generally top shelf as resorts go. Food as expected...don’t expect gourmet. They try but really it is what it is. Karla at the bar was amazing ...really took great care of my group.
Rooms are adequate, not new so don’t expect that.
I’d go back anytime I could. Oh...the seaweed was there but you could spend some time in the ocean if so inclined.
