Fabulous 8.8 From 99 reviews

Good 6.0
Not bad but...
Paid for upgrade but A/C wasn’t working in any of the rooms and some heavy leaking from the coming from the ceiling. Next day 2 A/C working but final A/C in bedroom not - three hours of maintenance team in the room with no success. Finally, massive construction work at the entrance area. Service is great, location is awesome and the restaurant does a decent job.

Late Flight Accommodations!!!
I have stayed at the Embarq before but this was first time I took advantage of their hospitality room program. Our flight out wasn’t until 4:30 and checkout is 11am so they have solved this dilemma with offering a hospitality room to shower off before you leave. This allowed us to have an extra complete beach day while they stored our bags and then when we were done they checked us into a nice room to shower off at no charge. Such a cool accommodation. The stairs are the only challenge but the golf cart service to the beach is great if they are too much. Love this place. Stayed in the two bedroom setup and it was beautiful and spacious.

First Class all the way
A little pricey and remote. However the staff is great. Ask that your room is fumigated before you check k in. It's a jungle and there are lots of mosquitoes

Week with family
The trip was amazing, the staff is excellent and other then the fact that I injured my leg and had to stay off my feet the duration of the trip.

Exceptional 10.0
Most relaxing vacation ever.
The hotel was exquisite. The architecture is exciting and creative giving you a wonderful Mexican feel. The entire property was immaculate throughout the entire weeks stay. The staff is knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and accommodating especially Rene at the front desk, Armando and Angel in the restaurant, and Eloy who got us wherever we needed to go. The restaurant serves breakfast and great dinner specials while lunch is served by the pool which also has a great bar. There is also service down on the beach.

Amazing views, staff and great pool happy hour
We had a great stay at the Embarc hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Our suite was large and the suite looked over the beach and pool with an extremely large patio with a cold water outdoor tube. The adult pool had a great happy hour (3 PM - 5 PM) and we met a lot of fellow vacationers who were also quite friendly. The pool staff were extremely pleasant and provided great service. I would definitely stay here again.
