Bel Air Collection Xpu Ha Riviera Maya
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Xpu-Ha
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Took a family trip Xpu-Ha Palace prior to the hurricane that devastated the area. What a wonderful place it was, the round bungalows were very spacious and comfortable. Cleaned daily and were a delight to see the towel animals on the beds. The grounds were outstanding with pathways through the estuary to get from place to place. Along the way you were lucky to see harmless wildlife. The lagoon was so much fun for the kids to snorkel in. The all-inclusive food and staff were good. I love how the décor was of the ancient culture. My favorite decoration was the center light piece that hung in the open lobby. Day trip to the ruins or cenote’s was a blast and the resort had on onsite car rental company for your convenience.

We stayed during six days, and we did not had enough time to be able to enjoy all the activities offered by this great place. We have visited several times the Riviera Maya , because we really love the beach, but this trip changed our perspective of fun in this wonderful place. The theme is "The Forest", and it is decorated with a great zoo, with a huge variety of animals, where you can "coexist" with beautiful birds in an aviary, and other amazing species , also you have chance to see exotic wildlife animals, which are easily living in their habitat. And we saw animals that we do not even knew, that they existed.
In addition there is a "cenote" where you can ride a kayak, the water is very cold, but the experience is incomparable. Also there is a pools area where you can prostrate in their confortable beds, and you can relax after a walk along the hotel. Bel Air has an excellent service, all employees are always aware of what you need, and they are very friendly. From the hotel take you to a visit to a virgin beach where you can enjoy a view of the most spectacular late afternoon, and meet one of the most beautiful beaches of the world.
No doubt, we can highly recommended this awesom Hotel , which also, can offer a very good prices.

Room Tip: The "Villas" are very confortable and with great space, you can see the nature of the tree...

If you like the jungle feel with critters running around, this place is for you. We loved it, but if you are squeamish about wild animals such as racoons, etc. then you will not be impressed because they come right up to the tables begging for food. We are farm oriented, so no problem for us, but others were not impressed. The food options were very lacking as there was only one buffet, a grill & sometimes the little restaurant on the beach was open in the evening. It was fine for us and we never went hungry. We found this great deal online & 5 of us got our flights, 7 nights, all-inclusive & transfers for around 5000, so was a good deal for a great vacation @ Riveria Maya, Mx. Beach is non-existing because it was all rocky! Had to walk down over rocks to adjoining resort where we (were not welcome ) to find sand.

My husband and I had gone for our honeymoon. It was a warm welcome when we had arrived. They served us with mimosas and quickly loaded our luggage. Sadly we had gotten there at 1130pm and were still charged for a whole day for the all inclusive package. It was wonderful seeing the animals everyday and the friendly staff. I would say that the staff really makes the place what it is. The food however was the only downfall. The places were only open certain times and only had certain things. It was the same menu every night at the fancy restaurant and sometimes they didn't have what you wanted. Also room service was not included, and if you did have room service, it was from whatever was open and off of their menu. The beach is what it is. We had found out from Hector (who you MUST get to know there, along with his partner in crime, Lydia) that before the Hurricane the beach was swimmable, but they have a beach that they can shuttle you to which is beautiful!! The pools that they have compensate for the lack of swimmable beach front that they have. Tip for people going there-bring money for tips. Although it is all inclusive, the staff (most of them) go above and beyond to please you.

This hotel is wonderful for kids of all ages, we went with 2 teenagers and 1 9year old and all of them had a blast. When you check in yes they are a little slow but your on Mexican time not American so relax. The pool is really nice and there is a kids area with some slides very clean and not crowded. The beach that you can walk to is nice but there is another one that is literally 5 min away and is very beautiful white sand good food. The beach that is close to the hotel is very rocky but my kids loved exploring. Lots of animals the kids also loved the adventure with them, Tecate the baby lion cub is so cute. The rooms were fine there is a jacuzzi in the room which is a nice touch. We all thought the food was excellent, there is a nice variety the kids ate really well and the service was good. The only thing that we did not like are the mosquitos you will get eaten alive if you do not have bug spray on!! For some reason the front lobby is really bad and they do not have bug spray for you. I am serious keep your bug spray in your back pocket and have it with you at all times. Would be nice if they would put some candles at the lobby to help with this problem. And finally please ask for Hector he picks you up in a shuttle and takes you to and from the pool, lobby etc. He is so friendly and is always asking you if everything is ok and will tell you great places where to go. He was very interested in pleasing all who came to that hotel!! So if you are looking for a 5 star hotel to just sit at beach and pool it is not for you. We liked it, it was different and quiet not a partying place! Remember your walking shoes, bug spray and to say hello to Hector he is a diamond in the rough!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the 900 which was a little far from the pool and dining but I wanted quiet. So if you d...

we stayed for 4 days and it was a great experience, this is an Animal Park / Hotel; Lots of animals around, tigers, lions. crocodiles, turtles eta

The pool is amazing and it is very relaxing, the place in general is out of the ordinary; this place is incredible for kids and for the adventurous ones; lots of things to do inside the property lie kayak, snorkeling etc; they have a cenote inside the property (deep natural water pit) where a family of manatees swim around

They have a private beach that a shuttle takes you every 30 minutes, amazing beach with bar service and lots of beach activities to do (volleybal, jet ski, deep snorkeling, water boarding, fishing etc etc)

Price was excellent considering the place, we paid around $200 per night for 2 persons

Food is a la carte, it is very close to Xcaret and around 30 min away from Tulum ruins

So you will have a fantastic time; beds are super comfortable and all rooms (cabanas) have a huge Jacuzzi inside


Ask for Mr. Anwar the manager, excellent, friendly gentleman.

Room Tip: All rooms have AC, get the rooms close to the restaurant, they have golf carts that take you

I took my husband there for Christmas. It was a great escape from the New York winter. I would say, though, that the grounds keeping could have been better. I felt that the leaves and debris, not garbage, around the property would've been cared for had it been the summer season or when more people were there. With that being said, I love the natural environment that allowed us to be ONE with nature. It was a great experience and I would recommend this place to anyone who loves God's creation. One down point, no beach swimming, we had to walk down the beach to another property to put our feet in the water. Not good

Room Tip: Try for a higher floor for more privacy.
