    Good

    Location! Nice budget bungalow style beach resort. Food at dinner was very good!

    No refrigerator! Air conditioning was not strong enough. Safe was too small. Sand everywhere in your bungalow...

    Friendliness of staff, unplugged atmosphere, clean beach and pools, decent food, proximity to town

    Uncomfortable bed- mattress needed replacing

    Exclusive

    The verandah with hammocks and the separate bungalows were great, everything was just steps from the beach. Many palm trees around made you feel like you were in a somewhat remote area, yet you were only blocks from all the nightlife in Playa del Carmen. Security personnel were on the beach all the time to insure the resort chairs and grass huts (palapas) were available to the guests and to keep the resort private. I felt very safe all the time!

    There is a lack of instructional material that would help travellers visiting the hotel know what to do: ie: trade beach towels in each day at front desk for new ones, a menu in the room to help decide if you want to have lunch or dinner each day, whether there is take out food from the restaurant or whether food can be ordered at the bar and during what times, etc

    Beach wonderful, pool and gardens just unbelievable! Rooms set with air conditioner and fans are very comfortable. Very quite. Live music. Chill-out area to hang out and meet other couples. All in all a great experience.

    One can say that the breakfast was a bit boring. Always the same fruit and same menu.

    Fabulous

    The big plus is that this hotel is at walking distance from just about everything, but not in the middle of it. It has it's own beach which which seemed a bit better then the hotels around. Also, the dive centre is pretty good. I enjoyed the stay overall because the location is great, the set-up is nice, staff are friendly and the beach is good. Also found the hammocks outside the porch a very nice touch.

    This is some sort of eco resort. The rooms are very, very basic. No mini bar, screen, Wifi or any other services that would make it a 4 or even 5 star hotel.

    Perfect location for beach vacation. Very friendly staff, always attentive and polite. The general set-up of the resort grounds was excellent, very well maintained and spotlessly clean.

    Very poor accommodation! For "Premier" room, the setup was outdated and very poor. Some specifics: The thatched roof leaked, smelled, and meant that the room was constantly humid and our belongings damp. Often we had insects falling from the roof onto the bed, which was also offputting. The bathroom was at best basic and, like the general decor of the room and furniture, very dated. To add to this; mismatched (length) curtains which wouldn't close, with water stains and remnants of squashed insects. We chose this resort for a luxury beach holiday, and due to the state of the accommodation we left disappointed

    Good

    Walking distance from the centre of town (5th avenue with shops and restaurants). Good quality food. Flexibility to change halfpension - breakfast dinner to breakfast lunch. Nice and clean rooms.

    Make sure you are on the aventura side otherwise you will hear the music from nearby club/disco. Price is on the high side and ocean view is to be taken lightly - a glimpse in the distance is already considered as ocean view.

    Superb

    Originally we booked 4 nights. After the first night, we realized we want more! We booked 4 additional nights. This hotel is so gooood. The food, the staff, the private beach, the room, the nature in this place, everithing!!! I´m not happy to write this because I dont want more people to come here, but I must write it owe it to all other people who writes. So, if you are a couple, you just must be here....... This is a dream coming true.

    There are mosquitoes.. :(
