I love that place, everyone who work there make certain you have the best vacation. Moore than a luxury vacation because of the clean, secure, confortable, spa, golf, good food etc.. place. If you want to be with people you may, if you want privacy the resort is so big you have complete privacy. Great restaurant with a variety of food, excellent for kids and family and grand-parents.In some way they give so much that some guess, I have seen some, abuse or complain for some little detail. We become member and are happy with that but it is very important to read your contract before to confirm with a signature because some promesses might be only verbal and do not meet what you expect and what was say at the presentation. Make sure to understand very well your contract if you decide to become a member. Being a member is very good but sale people should say the exact privileges instead of telling only half of the reality. Read less

The resort is close to Cancun but secluded. Nice restaurants and pools. Friendly staff. Clean and tidy. Great place for a family vacation. Not a great beach but plenty of great pools. Plenty of shops and a great golf course with nice restaurants there as well.
