My daughter and I went for reading week and we enjoyed ourselves. It was a lot larger than I like, many French speaking guests. One issue was that no matter where you went at the resort there wasn't any bottled water. I ended up going to the onsite liquo store and paid $5.00 for a bottle of water. Other resorts...

I had the privilege of visiting this resort with my daughter over a short weekend through her job. Although we only spent a brief time there we truly enjoyed our stay. Our room was pretty nice. The food at the buffet was consistently good and varied. The drinks were not bad either. We were not able to get reservations at...

Our room overlooked the little pool and was next to the Restaurant Tequila. That is where we enjoyed every breakfast and lunch. Our servers, Saul and Carlos were outstanding. The...

We checked in on Saturday afternoon. Check in was swift and they carted us to our villa on a golf cart. The resort is huge and requires riding golf carts/trolleys unless you are an avid walker. We enjoy walking so we were able to get around on foot ok but we did use the trolley to go to the market...

My 18 yr old and I venture to GBPTulum last week for a mother daughter trip. We opted for a less expensive resort as she was paying half. In all fairness, my husband and I typically stay at Secrets or Excellence Adults only so take all this with that in mind. Arrival was easy. We took a private shuttle through...
