Went on a short vacation with 20 work friends and their families. There is definitely something here for everyone of different interests, ages and speeds. Nice live entertainment nightly, decent food and a party beach atmosphere daily. Staff was friendly, especially if you tip well. Rooms were nothing fancy, but clean and we had a patio walk out to the...

Amazing resort, amazing Weather, and amazing staff! First time at this resort and I can honestly say nothing bad. The hacienda suites are huge! The pictures they have online don't do justice at all, the rooms are so spacious and nice. Maria and Marisol helped my husband and I make our day special, a beautiful wedding that words cannot express...

Moving from Azul 5 to here for our son's, after a week of pampering, was some what of a disappointment. When we arrived it was hot in the lobby and the staff seemed somewhat unprepared, unorganized and confused. There was no-one to direct us where to go, what to do, or what kind of reservation you had. When we finally...

This is a wonderful resort. Staff is friendly. Food is good. The French & Italian restaurants are awesome. Beautiful beach. Nice room.

To summarize: Great for families but not so great if going here for an adults only experience. I think this is a great resort especially if your taking younger kids. They do a lot of activities for the kids. However, if your looking into this resort for the adults only aspect then I would say find somewhere else. The reason...
