Good and Bad

So my boyfriend and I booked this resort as my birthday getaway. 6 days 5 nights in what seemed to be “the best adults only around”. Let me just start by saying the room was beautiful. The double vanity & humongous glass stand up shower with a king size bed and 2 sofas was phenomenal and that’s not even including our amazing 4th floor view. The thing that was the absolute WORST was the simple fact that men must wear long pants and a SLEEVED shirt to dinner everyday & to breakfast and lunch YOU MUST HAVE SLEEVES so no tank tops for men because they won’t let you in. The food choices were okay. I really enjoyed breakfast with the omelette station, fresh pressed juices & all the other variety that was given (OH YEA AND THEY HAVE LIQUOR FOR BREAKFAST) Lunch was okay. You had the choice of the buffet a small tapas outdoor restaurant && the personal brick oven pizza by the beach that was nice. Dinner choices were disappointing. The buffet was usually just decent , the italian restaurant is cute and romantic but the food wasn’t the best, we did not try the french or mexican but the hibachi was definitely amazing we ate there two days in a row. The top shelf liquor everywhere does make up a little bit for the lack of food choices but it would of been nice to have some variety. The two pools you’re allowed to use (if you’re not a vip member) are unique with lay out chairs inside the water and huge mattress loungers . But the music at the party pool is absolutely AWFULLLLLLLLL ! All they play is techno electronic house music from day till night and it’s the same beats NON STOP. The foam party is fun but once again all you hear is the same old electronic music. There is no nightly theatre entertainment FAIR WARNING && the club is your only option and it gets so crowded that it’s uncomfortable to even dance or stand around. They have hookah which was nice because we enjoy a good relaxation after dinner but it was a little on the pricey side. The beach was not swimmable due to seaweed which was very disappointing because my significant other loved the beach The staff was amazing to us. They were extremely attentative and fulfilled all our needs. Always kind and willing to go to the extreme to save your seats at the pool and restaurants. Overall i liked the resort it was very clean and updated. I wish they would change the music and do some night time entertainment to give us options on what we would like to do at night. Also the dress code for breakfast and lunch is a little much; you’re on vacation who wants to wear short sleeves non stop !!

Amazing Time

We had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed every second. We were very happy to have been placed in the party section of the hotel. The activities were amazing and fun. The music by the pool was awesome so a big applause to the DJ’s. My only complaint was the beach and apparently the seaweed situation it a natural occurrence and happening everywhere. Nothing the hotel can control. Thanks for having the great activities by the pool !!! Looking forward to going back.

August 13, 2018

I arrived in Cancun exhausted, after no sleeping well for two night due to our flight being very early and traveling from Palm Springs. Our shuttle service operated by Amstar was "shaky". Once outside of the airport there were more Amstar agents than arriving guests!! Still it took them 30 minutes to put us in a bus!! First they could not find our names (flipping a dozen pages and looking at names handwritten) finally another agent arrived with an I pad and they at last found our names. I would suggest to take a taxi it may be a bit more money but really worth it! Once we arrive at breathless hotel the check in was not fast I must say, I could not wait to be in my room and lay down but it did not happened that fast! A "sale pitch" was waiting for us and had to listen to the lady until we were able to put two words in and telling her we were not interested. We now arrive to our room and surprise!!! The ocean view I paid for was obstructed by a big tree! (see photo). Who would plant a tree in front of a room hiding the ocean view?!!! the fallowing morning I explain to the front desk that I ordered an ocean view room, they could not do anything, another room was available the fallowing but she did not say that it would be an ocean view, we decided to stay in our room without the ocean view. The beach was not swimmable, ( book a resort on the Caribbean side if you want to swim in the sea). the ocean side is not good, large beds of floating Algea and everything else, like most of us I dream of beautiful aqua turquoise water, this is found on the Caribbean side, keep this in mind. The pool was great (infinity style) and very large! the food: hit or miss and not really great, too many choices at the buffet and not good quality. Actually breakfast was the best meal for us, omelette made to order were seriously good done by experience chefs! We tried the steak house, a filet was on their menu,I ordered it but after tasting it I realized it was not a filet of beef! it was a cut of beef cut in a medaillon form to make it look like a filet and was tough. We spoke with the manager of the evening and he knew what I was talking about, he did not attempt to argue with me (I have been in the food business for 30 years). Embarrassed, he offered us a T bone steak for the fallowing night ( I do not like free stuff but expect to receive what I pay for). We did not want to go but decided to do so because the manager was genuinely kind and sorry about my experience). I hope that they will correct their menu and be honest about what they serve. The same night I order a cocktail, and it was water down, I am not a big drinker but enjoy a couple of drinks while on vacation, I ask the waiter to bring me another shot of alcohol and I will be happy to pay for it, the shot arrived and quickly was poured in my drink, my guest and I tried the drink again and still was really weak!!!! Man! Did they water down the extra shot as well? By then I was really disappointed. Again why constantly deceiving the consumer??? the drinks at the pool were very weak as well but they added more Tequila to our request. (I am almost done I promise!) We were given a resort coupon booklet. I decided to go for a 25 minutes facial, and when I presented my coupon it was not accepted because it would only be valid if I had chosen a more expensive facial ($200.00!!) Nowhere in the booklet was written that coupons are for top priced services only. I could go on and on about breathless but it is not necessary, the only thing that save the day was the staff, each one of them super kind, very efficient, my sincere compliments to all of them!! I am not saying to go or not to go to this resort, my intention is to make you aware of what the reality is once you arrive. Like many of you I am not a snob and get along with simplicity very well, what I find ridiculous (to remain polite) is advertisement not reflecting the truth or honesty. God bless!

What's to Love

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

Blow your hair back. Beyond chic. It's an all-inclusive, adults-only wonderland in a tropical paradise.

24/7 festive vibe replete with music shows, beach parties and mega dance parties.

Treatments like the hydrotherapy circuit, therapeutic showers and Water Lily After-Sun Soothing Wrap.

The communal tables at the aah-mazing restaurants where you can meet & dine with fellow beach revelers.

 

What We'd Change

This lively resort is a lot of fun, and sometimes it's hard to find that quiet corner, but when you are looking for a little bit of peace, take a break in the resort's spa.

 

Why You Should Go

Just 15 minutes away from the airport - you're a whisper away from all the fun.

Upgrade to the xhale club, and be treated like rock stars - personalized check-in/check-out, private pool & more.

There are monthly shindigs like Fashion Frenzy & weekly partays like the Lingerie Black Light Party. Muah.

Don't miss mingling in the giant 35-person Jacuzzi.
