We stayed for 9 days and came back on 1/13. The good: 1. No seaweed in the water 2. New, clean facility 3. Nice beach and awesome pools (5 of them) 4. Water slides The not so good: 1. At lunch, sometimes the buffet was closed and you had to go to the one open restaurant out of 5. The Italian restaurant was not good. 2. There's a show every night. If you are ocean facing, it will be loud until 11. They particularly like Michael Jackson and do tributes to him. I think no one has told them the news. 3. At checkout, (12:00), we asked for an extension since our flight did not leave until 4:45. The resort was not full but they wouldn't give us one, unless we paid 880 pesos. I agreed to pay. When I presented my credit card, they wanted to also see my passport. Then they asked me to re-sign the credit card exactly how my passport was signed. Apparently, people don't like paying the extra money and dispute it as a lost credit card. I didn't like not being trusted after I spent 9 days there. 4. Too many kids. If you have kids, then you won't mind. If you don't, they will get on your nerves. Overall, a nice place with good employees but there are better places to stay. Probably won't be going back there.

Nothing much for kids to do. If you're planning to go there with children, look else where. The beach is not that great, either. Expect to step on lots of seaweeds on the beach.

As I saw on other posts The pool is very warm, too warm to cool off. The beach was covered in seaweed. The food had a lot to be desired; over cooked, or several days old.

Nice and clean. Newer facility but did not appear to have room service. Restaurants were good. Coffee and tea did not seem as readily available as other resorts in the morning. Drinks were good but sometimes needed to wait a little while especially ordering from the beach. The 24 hr sports bar is limited and the only place to get food after restaurants close at 21:30. The choices are not good; hot dog or bad nachos. Maybe a cold sandwich, that’s about it. All staff were friendly and helpful. Water park is a plus for families. Pre book a shuttle b/c it’s about 30-40 mins north of airport a taxi would be expensive.

Our family of 5 stayed a week at the hotel and we were pleasantly surprised how good it was. It is not close to the night life of Cancun, nor are their any retail/shopping opportunities close to the hotel. But, if you are looking for a place to relax and chill out, this is the place for you. Options for all ages includes four pools, a large outstanding beach (the water was a little cool in December), a water park for the kids, some of the best food choices we have had compared to many other places we have stayed, nightly entertainment, and a willingness of the entire staff to handle all are needs. The alcohol was available in the rooms and at their many bars providing excellent choices of beverages (not watered down). The rooms were clean and well appointed. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely place it on my revisit list for the future.

Fantastic place

Some of the reviews were low that I read and I'm not sure why. Food was above average and free. Staff was unbelievably great. This hotel is new and plants are still growing so there are some thin areas but still looks great.
