4/5 Good

They failed to tell about the renovations that caused closing of restaurants and a maze of going from one area to another. Also they have like 200 sun beds that were practically all empty due to the 40$ a day charge to utilize them that was ridiculous. With all the constructions going on giving a little on these would have been nice. Also why this 4.6 hotel gives packets of ketchup, mayo that one has to open with your teeth was tacky!! I will say Great food and service by the staff Everyone was friendly and kind and so helpful. Communication could be a little difficult with certain employees like maids and waiters but still sweet people. Hated the pressure Breakfast Sales pitch. Great location in Playa de Carmen. Always felt safe.

We were there for my sons wedding and were not made aware of the major construction that was going on. It was very loud and went on late into the night. Areas were closed and blocked off.

4/5 Good

Unfortunately we were not told of the extensive remodeling that was happening while we were there. But the customer service and quality if the amenities made up for it! The staff was amazing there and once the remodel is complete im sure the already beautiful hotel will be even more amazing!
