Everything was perfect, the resort, the staff, the food, they offer many restaurants to chose from, no need for reservations , There is a different theme of animation each day on the beach, that is by the way, large and long , a short walk to Playa del Carmen,we loved our stay, and we would go back for sure

Loved all the...
