There are more than 700 guestrooms at this all inclusive, beachfront Cancun hotel. Families will love the five outdoor pool options but the onsite water park, Splash Water World, will be the highlight for the kids, along with kayaking and snorkeling off the beach. The kids’ club offers a full day of fun for the kids every day including things like water games and dance routines. While the kids are having fun there, the adults can enjoy the spa. Live entertainment is always taking place and there are a variety of onsite restaurant options to enjoy with the all inclusive package. The bright guestrooms offer a king bed or two double beds and a sleeper sofa, free Wi-Fi (also throughout the resort), a mini bar/mini-fridge, air conditioning, flat screen television and a balcony or terrace to enjoy the beautiful beach views.

Late review, stayed in April
At 700 rooms this is not a small resort, but we gravitate to huge sprawling low resorts, so it was a departure. We bought because of price. Paid 1150pp from Halifax NS when the typical cost is 1600-1900.
As beach people we loved that it was less developed than many other resort beaches but still a short enough walk to drinks/bathroom. Love that it is trees for shade and there were still some side tables if you arrived early. The water got deep quickly which is great for swimmers, we had a few windy days and it was rough water, we loved it but paid attention.
We are not pool people and the pools looked busy/lively, not our thing, didn't use them.
Splash world was a treat, I went twice for less than a hour to slide, climb, slide....no waiting....med level trills for a intermediate level rider.
Food was excellent. Some of the best buffet food we've had. the format for the a la carte's was not our style. It mixed menu/buffet and although the food was great the turn over was quick. We were never rushed, but the sheer format/pace meant a slow, quiet, table service meal wasn't happening. Pagers, no reservations, our longest wait was 40 min.
Decor was......? My husband calls is Ikea flip decor. It was fine but not high quality.
Added bonus, short drive from the airport.
Overall for a hotel that doesn't fit our vacation style the beach and food made it a vacation winner.
Arrived from England for a 11 night holiday. Check in was swift and seamless, we was given a free WiFi pass code all of which work fine all across the hotel including beach. The greeting was great, we was served a cocktail drink.
We was awake early, breakfast starts early and there's more than enough to keep you going including freshly made omelettes. Coffee is served to you and there's always a seat waiting for you. Fresh fruit, cereal, milk and so much more all come with the breakfast.
Pool areas are great, we found that you could pick the atmosphere, both pool bars have different music etc and then we found if you wanted a sleep or to relax around the pool you could either move to the spectacular beach or move towards the water slides. The drinks trolly, wow you don't even need to move away from your lounger.
Lunch service around the pool is mainly BBQ burgers, fries, chicken and main lunch service startes a little later in the main buffet restaurant.
Dinner service, well where can you go wrong. There's vast amount to chose from. Buffet is changed around and there's always things to eat, all the other restaurants are 100 percent. Steak restaurant we found is the best.
The wine, its great and they offer a variety of white, red and rose. Sparkling wine/champagne is available all day long also with the meals.
Deserts, vast amount of options and coffee if you want it.
The rooms, free air conditioning, flat screen TV massive king size bed that's really comfy. Yes there's a window in the bathroom, but that's not a problem as you can't see a thing.
Sports bar 24, nachos, burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs, nuts the service was great here.
The entertainment staff are fabulous and friendly. I've found with other hotel chains that they ask to much for anticipation however they know when not to ask e.g when relaxing and when you're most likely to take part.
The staff clearly take pride in what they do. Everyone is so polite, there's plenty that looked after us and there's so much more I could talk about so if you have any questions please send me a message.
