The resort is very clean and pretty, but small. We had issues from day 1, re: our room category, dinner availability, the pool bar service, and entertainment crew are great! The cust service for the resort itself could honestly care less. There are a ton of unpleasant review on many sites with the same complaints. They are quite pricey compared to other resorts, and you do not get as many ammenities. We paid for preferred club, which really gets you NOTHING! It said preferred mini bar, we had 4 coronos and 1 airplane bottle in our room, and not everyday. M&M candy 2x. Out of 5 restaurants, 2 are closed each night, and hibachi is only 1 taking reservations. You have to wait on line there at 3PM day you want to go, needless to say we were turned away 4 times, and ate at the VERY SMALL not so great buffet 2 nights, because the wait for a table in a restaurant was ludicrous. CIBU is supposed to be al a carte breakfast daily for preferred club, it was closed the whole week while they did timeshare business in there. It was open for dinner, we got in, and the food was excellent.The alcohol is watered down....FACT, and there are NO JACUZZIS except in the oceanfront rooms, we were mislead at booking, and were celebrating our anniversary. I have never in 7 yrs in a row vacationed without a jacuzzi. We explained this, they said they were all booked up, but chased us down and asked for 700$, and then they had one for way. The pools close 4:30, and the resort becomes almost isolated. Gift shop was under renovation whole weel, and they were weedwhacking while we were at the pool..haha, honestly, was soo disappointed, used to a huge buffet, lots of meal choices, and paying for preferred means something. NOT HERE, when I booked, cheap carribean told me my room had an indoor jacuzzi, and was a tropical view, so FYI, there are NO indoor jacuzzis except oceanfront rooms...Sad my holiday is over, and was not like every trip we usually take. Go to a TRS, amazing...Sorry

Good Value

My husband and I came here for our honeymoon, and overall it was a good experience. Pros would be the sweet honeymoon decor they added to our room, the pool was very lively, the staff was friendly, and the food was pretty good. We ordered room service a few of the nights and really enjoyed it. My biggest con was that I had booked a romantic dinner on the beach that a thunderstorm ruined. We only sat out there for about 10 minutes before the wind took out our tablecloth and we had to move inside. Obviously I did not blame the resort for this, but when I tried to remove the dinner from my bill at check-out, I was told that I should have told them when it happened so they could have re-done it or something. I just didn't want to be charged for a dinner on the beach that I really didn't have, but I am not much of a complainer so I wasn't that bothered by it. The other biggest con for me would be the beach. It was covered in seaweed our whole stay. They tried to keep it off the shore but it was a futile attempt. I'm a big beach lover so that was a bummer, but the really great pool made up for it. Overall, it was a good experience and it was not very costly. I would recommend it to anyone looking to have a weekend getaway at a good value.

First time--great experience for large group

Over the past several years, our 18 member family has traveled to Mexico for a week at an all-inclusive, around Christmas and New Year's. After 2 years in Cozumel, we were up for something new. This was recommended to us by CC, and it was a fun experience. Key positives: --Rooms were nice sized, clean and very comfortable. The staff was in the room multiple times a day cleaning and turning down the bed. --Food was good, no reservations policy was very good. The buffet was a solid choice. The specialty restaurants were a treat, from the Hibachi (fun) to Cibu, Paramour and even Fresco's, which served food distinct from the buffet and had excellent service (and good food). --The Preferred Club was an excellent addition. We were able to stay near each other, and the access to the adults only pool (with palapas) was awesome--quiet and away for the noise at the larger pool --Great gym. --Lots of activities. Bike ride into town was a nice change. --Night time shows were a cut above our prior experience. --Beach is comfortable--less rocky than many in the region. You could walk in either direction and see the other resorts --The staff is VERY nice, and helpful at every step. --The spa was also clean and nicely set up. I did the free hydrotherapy, and enjoyed it so much I purchased the day pass (a bargain) to get a sauna, steam and jacuzzi almost every day. Things to note (and they were minor): --As noted, it's not a private beach, so people may wander through. --Service at the Paramour for breakfast was a bit scattered on occasion. --Sometimes the activities did not happen. The yogi did not show up for scheduled classes twice. There was a Spanish class that might or might not happen. --Nothing dries! I would pay for access to a dryer. --Wish the pool bars stayed open past 5pm. We are already planning to go back.
