Property was clean, food was good depending on the timw of the day. The food bar they had by the ocean was always empty. One person cooking for everyone was not enough, but he would stop cooking at 1:30 when closing time was 2. The entertainment was thw worse. The kids club was for kids from 4- 12 and most if not all activities were indoors which was sad. Jesus, one of the entertainers wouldn't let my 13 year old participate in the games because according tp Jesus, "the games were for adults". So young teenagers dont have much to do bc they cant stay in the kids club or play games with grownups. The night entertainment was boring. Who wants to hear English songs when you.are in Mexico. I don't go to China and expect them to have a mariachi night every day. When i go to Mexico i want to learn more about the culture, listen to songs in spanish, watch valet folklorico instead of Michael Jackson. They have a beautiful theater but poor entertainment.

2nd time staying here, loved everything about it. I came during November (rained the last 2 days but still hot and humid). I stayed in the villas with the ocean view; worth the upgrade. I loved that the villas had its own infinity pool and a waiter that brought you drinks to the pool. The beach is small but still nice; you can always walk over to the next hotel which is right next door the beach is a lot nicer. The staff is amazing, helpful, and extremely nice. I loved all the food options, food was delicious. The only thing I didn’t like was the serving hours for lunch and dinner. We often got back too late after 4pm and missed the lunch, so we had to wait for dinner to eat anything which didn’t start until 6:30pm. But overall great experience I would definitely come back.
