8/10 Very good

Resort was great and so was the customer service. My children had a great time. There is no hotel transportation included.

2/10 Poor

Emotional stress and bodily harm were all we got
Here's our experience from the worst to it's a joke. The waterpark is one big safety risk. There were seven three-story tall slides. No age or height limit was posted; kids and adults are playing mixed. No mechanism exists to ensure only one user in the slide at a time. Only one guard was watching all the slides. Unfortunately my wife fell victim to the situation. She tried the low level one. The design was such that the middle section slows you down to a stop. While she was stuck in there, another guy came down hitting her in the back. We protested to the guard and asked to speak to management; they refused for being "busy". We changed flight to leave the next day. The resort blasts loud music every night at least till 11. The first night, Friday, it went on to 1am. We complained to no effect and learned "it's a special event". The many advertised food options are a sham. Only an international buffet is available for breakfast and lunch. We went to the Italian buffet once and had seafood risotto with half-cooked rice and not-so-fresh scallops. You need to make reservations for popular places; that means waiting for 20+ minutes outside in 90+ degree air; the workers have shade and the guests don't. We tried their Animal Keeper activity for kids. Our son got 2 small carrot sticks to feed a couple sheep and a piece of apple to feed a pig. Then it was over. We have farms close to our house that are 100x times more fun. And the towel card is worth $50USD each if lost. Precious!

So many things to do and explore on the property. I feels like you're staying in the jungle. If we'd had our kids with us, they would've absolutely loved it.

8/10 Very good

The property is great with so much to do and explore, animal sanctuary, mayan ruins, cenotes. Plenty of activities you can sign up to participate in, and the evening shows are great. Downfall is it's next to impossible to get a reservation at a la carte restaurants, we stayed 6 days and had to eat at the same buffet for every meal. Super disappointing

6/10 Good

The restaurants were good, but waits were very long. Buffet was average with long waits. Would not have chose this resort if I knew about the sea weed issue. You couldn’t swim in the ocean due to sea weed. Complete lack of coffee shop was disappointing. One espresso machine for the entire resort is ridiculous . Overall resort was very busy.
