What could have been.. with greater quality checks

This was our third all inclusive Dreams vacation. I was advised that Now Sapphire was owned by the same leadership and would surprise me with the higher quality. It was disappointing overall. The transfer from the airport was excellent. Once we arrived at the hotel at 10 we were told we needed to wait until 4 pm to check in. We paide for preferred. We ended up walking around in the heat. The "free" wi-fi would not work until we got our room number. WHY?!?! We planned to celebrate a birthday at a hibachi restaurant. We checked in on Wed and I was told it had been book out for the week since Sunday. I could try again on the following Sunday (the day we were departing). We went to sit by the pool. EVERY chair had towels on them and no one was there. The procedures in the book in the room stated no reservation by towel is permitted... but it happened everyday. Reservations at the preferred pool were to be booked at 0845 the day prior and had to be taken by 11. We had two morning of excursions at 645 and 0710. We obviously missed the reservation period for the following days. Actually in the 5 days we were there we were not able to reserve a cabana. There were only a FEW chairs and only in full sun available. Why not have more chairs if you obviously have more clients. It was unfortunate we arrived when the seaweed WAS IN. 3 -4 feet of seaweed covered the entire beach coast and beach access was not possible our entire visit. No walking... and certainly no swimming. But we could pay to go on an excursion across the island to swim....Instead of dozing the seaweed like the resort next to us, there were 1-2 workers with pitch forks. In a day he cleared about 20 feet of beach. All Inclusive drinks? They can afford to do this because the drins are watered down. I observed the bartenders often and figured the watering is in the bottles prior to delivery to the bar for use. . No question!! There were six of us and my kids are mid-20s. We came to enjoy--not over-indulge but the drinks were sweet and weak. Only those drinking wine or beer got what they ordered. Even in the premium lounge we focused on wine due to the our experiences throughout the resort. The rooms were large and potentially luxurious, however they were not clean. The edges and corners of the floor around the room and bathroom were dirty. I had to put a towel down in the shower to prevent slipping from the soap scum on the floor. The air-conditioning did not work and they came to fix the antiquated system. Water dripped from the ceiling of the AC vents. It never got below 24 degrees Celsius (75 F) The refrigerator would not cool. We were told not to drink the water but it took two days to get more than one bottle of water was placed in the room. Again we paid for preferred. We got 3 random airline bottles of liquor in our room. Room service is advertised as 24 hour service. We needed to order breakfast (three) due to early excursions. Breakfast is served after 0600. When we called we were all told something different. "yes the menu offers eggs but we don't serve them until after 0700". Sorry you only get muffins", I got an omelet one morning and then told the next morning they never prepare omelets. Who's in charge of the kitchen and room service. One morning I got 6 forks and knives (for two people) but did not get the pot of coffee. Again nothing that could not have been resolved with some quality checks and managerial leadership. We vacation often but I doubt we will visit this resort chain in the future.

Highly Recommend!

My boyfriend and I visited this resort in May for our first vacation together. It was great! We didn't want to leave. Service was great and the staff is so friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and there were plenty of activities on the schedule. We visited XCaret and Xplor parks, which were so fun. We also took lessons for scuba diving and went twice. Lessons and tours all purchased from the adventure kiosk next to the pool. A great value. Food was okay, Wouldn't recommend the sushi place, but everywhere else was fine. The drinks were a little weak, but that's to be expected. Overall we would highly recommend this resort to our friends and will be back. Travelling in May was nice because it wasn't too busy, although there was a lot of sea weed on the beach, so consider that when deciding when to go. Enjoy!

Disappointed

This was my first time to Riviera Maya. Unfortunately there was a seaweed issue throughout the Caribbean and we could not go in the water. The pool was beautiful but was not refreshing because the water was so warm. The grounds were very pretty & clean. The staff was kind, but nothing out of this world. The entertainment team did a good job - again, nothing special. I was disappointed in the buffets. I am a vegan and although I was able to eat something at every meal, the choices were limited and the food quality was just ok. We hung out at the night club almost every night. The music was good but we heard the same songs each night. I would've liked more games at the club or on the grounds. For the price I paid, I expected better.

What's to Love

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

Bali beds around the pool and ocean front kiosks that give you the ultimate in rock star beach bliss.

The friendliest staff. You'll never want for a thing. (They can read drink requests in your mind).

Photo op at the main pool - the ocean view is drop-dead-gorgeous-good.

Evocative architecture and decor inspired by ancient Mayan Culture. (See? They weren't all ruffians).

Spacious Jr. Suites with cozy bathrobes, slippers, furnished balcony and 24-hour room service.

Activities for the kiddos, tweens and teens, keeping them busy (and away) for hours.

Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan menu options available at the a la carte restaurants.

 

What We'd Change

The restaurants open on a rotating schedule, so some may be closed on a particular evening. But the rotation means you won't get bored. For specific cravings, 24-hour room service has you covered.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 15 minutes from the airport - paradise is waiting for you with a welcome cocktail.

Upgrade to Preferred Club and enjoy an adults-only pool. (Kids are fun, but pool water in your drinks, not so much).

Rejuvenate with a Myoxy-Caviar Facial - it's ok to spoil yourself. You deserve it.

The world's second largest coral reef is just off the shores - snorkel envy is here & it's real.

Complimentary green fees at Grand Coral Riviera Maya Golf Course. Woot!

Spend a day at Xcaret learning about Mayan history and exploring the lagoons and parks.

Hop on a bicycle tour - a great way to see the resort and the natural beauty around you.

Starting your day with an energizing Zumba class - dance, sweat, hit the beach.
