We absolutely loved it here. The resort is exactly as it is shown in the pictures on the website. We vacationed with our 2 children, ages 9 and 11, and had such a great time! The snorkeling right outside of the hotel was good, the pools were nice, the grounds were very well kept, the employees were very nice. Our server, Rogilio, was the BEST! We loved him. My kids said that he made our vacation more fun. :) The food was excellent- others had said that it was just "OK", but we found it to be very good. There was always something that all of us liked. No complaints whatsoever. The ambiance in the restaurant at night was so wonderful. There was a live band every other night, which was a really nice addition. Breakfast overlooking the ocean was great. Lots of food to choose from. We would definitely return to Mahekal!!
