Good value but the beach is quite small. Fun activities, great evening entertainment. The food was good with a great selection. Not far from downtown. It's a very comfortable resort for not a lot of money.

I went to Cancun for few days, and the hotel offered me a lot of amenities for the right price. Close to both downtown and the night clubs. It is affordable but nice, and I would recommend the pool bar to stay there some time.

We stayed 2 nights here and we had a very enjoyable time. Very clean, the staff is very helpful and the all inclusive option is the way to go. The buffet offered for every meal has plentiful options, is fresh and everything tastes amazing. I must point out Luis, Angel and Laurentino. These employees are golden nuggets. Very attentive and...

Ok pool, large rooms with standard holiday inn decor, comfy beds and nice view from the balcony. Free wifi and easily accessible, only a bus ride away from the town centre. Breakfast was good with lots of choices.

We stayed one night and were glad we hadn’t booked any more. We had no bath towels in our room on arrival at 7pm and after waiting two hours for reception to send some, I had to go down to get them as we needed a shower after a long day sightseeing in hot and sticky temperatures.

My husband and I stayed one night before we headed over to Cozumel. The room is huge! It has a fridge, cook top stove, microwave, mini coffee pot and even a blender! We didn't make it to the pool, but it was very busy. There is also a beach that seemed nice. The food was ok.
