I booked for me and a friend not knowing what to expect, being afraid of all inclusive resorts. We both were very happy with the resorts (actually you have access to four hotels within the same huge resort). The food was great at the buffets and at the à la carte restaurants. The rooms are showing age a little, but...

We stayed at this resort, June 29-July 13 and had an awesome vacation! I booked our holiday in February and read Trip Advisor everyday until we went and it really helped our holiday be amazing. There really were no surprises for me when we arrived. I had read about the $5/day safe charge we brought our own suitcase locks. I...

Pros: 1. The local Mexicans that work there are awesome. They provide excellent service (I suspect they receive little pay or tips). 2. The pools are very nice. 3. The buffet and drinks are pretty good. 4. The value is great. Our kids stayed free through bookit.com. The only expensive part of the trip was the direct flight there. 5....

Spent 1 wonderful week floating in the pool at the Coba. We really had a very very nice time.
