Check in was the longest check in process I've ever experienced, the key cards stopped working in less than 24 hours for all guests and we had to reset it at reception every few hours. Reception was extremely rude to our last guest who checked in later

4/10 Fair

We chose this property for the partial all inclusive option because we had never vacationed without AI. Very disappointed with the food options because there were next to none on the buffet. The breakfast was the same everyday just about. They did have a la carte menus and that food was actually the bar especially. We ordered the Mini burgers, the pizza and the chicken on a stick several times. The partial all inclusive does not include alcoholic beverages. Thankfully the drinks are cheap (30,000 pesos) so our hotel bill was only $190 USD for the extra food and drinks that we bought during our 5 night stay. There is a beach, but it is not directly in front of the hotel. It is maybe 2 minute walk. I wouldn't waste my money on upgrading to the level because that part of the resort is not beachfront. There are no hotel chairs on the beach. There are vendor tents set up where you have to pay for chairs. The sand is dark so the water doesn't look very clear, but it was very clean. No seaweed. The pool needs some major renovation they have broken slats all around it. No one really comes to take your drink order unless you're native. There's almost no life to this resort. Entertainment was a band, no shows. If you don't speak Spanish you will be overlooked and ignored most of the time. Because the resort is about 25 minutes away from town Uber will cost about 45mil pesos ($9 USD) each way. Biggest complaint no hot water most of our stay! Why?!?!
