Stayed here for two nights after a week moving around the Yucitan peninsula. Great resort. Great food. No complaints! Hipolito was amazing at the Mexican a la carte restaurant - ask for him! Edgar and Armando at the beach bar were also fantastic! Make sure to pop in and talk to them.

Good food, clean and good location. Mom's getaway for 5 days so could have used some more nightly entertainment without having to leave resort to go to a club/bar. Walked to the market, love that we didn't have to make reservations for dinner, just show up and put your name in. Beach service was great, great time !
