This is my wife and I’s third time here and it was wonderful as always. We keep bringing more and more friends each time. This time it was a group of 8. The staff are so attentive. Victor (Volleyball master), Alejandro (pool service), Aparicio (Lobby), and Kristal (local host) were awesome. They made us feel like we were old friends. The food was wonderful. The staff is so hard working. They often say, “my pleasure,” when they provide a service. Certainly, it is “our pleasure” to have discovered this resort. We love our “home away from home.” Read less

It’s like your own chic Filet worker that can book anything on the resort for you. He was absolutely amazing! We highly recommend this resort for the pool staff and food. The beach left some to be desired, but the rest of the resort made up for that! Read less

I've stayed at this resort a couple times in the past and it was until my last trip my favorite resort in the region. Post covid, it's really a shame what this resort has become. First, the sales staff try to get you to invest in timeshares, the kind of stuff that the airport kiosks harrass you about. It's really terrible to be harrassed during your vacation. I figured, with COVID, they must really need the money. But they kept on insisting that the "Legendary Membership" is risk free, we have a week to think about it and completely refundable. I guess I was in good spirits and agreed against better judgement. Needless to say, it was a complete scam and still have not received a refund. Second, the food quality has really went from 5 star resort to 3 star resort... It was terrible. That was one of the major selling points of this resort in the past. I mean, I don't know how it's possible to mess up Mexican cuisine in a Mexican resort but they sure butchered the experience. Everything was salty and the ceviche made our party sick. Won't be coming back to this resort again. Read less
