A week ago my family a group of 8 stayed at this hotel for two weeks. We had a lovely holiday, the hotel is wow and overall we were very well looked after.
Towards the end we were picking slight faults out of it but nothing that would stop us returning again. I dont think that we could stay in any hotel without picking a few slight things that could of been better because there is always room for improvement!!:-))
The food was very good, great choice and good selection of a la carte restaurants. Our fave being the steakhouse.
All in all a very good hotel :-)

We enjoyed 2 more great dives and saw some sting rays, lobster, massive parrot fish and lots of cool disco fish. Sean took the Go Pro camera out and really enjoyed the diving, feeling more confident. After heading back, Sean's PADI certification was sorted and we left the island after a great few days. Isla mujeres ...
So back on the mainland we headed south again. Tulum was the detination having decided to skip Playa Del Carmen which funnily enough was where I had originally planned to spend some time when i first decided to go to Mexico.
Tulum township was nothing to write home about. Set on a highway a few kms from the beach it felt a bit more like a truck stop to a town.
Visited the beach which was nice but ...
... now all bearing witness to my inability to practice moderation in the face of all you can eat self serve popcorn butter). Then I took it one step further – I packed up my **** and moved to Tulum.
Tulum is burgeoning tourist town a couple hours south of Cancun famous for a set of Mayan ruins located on hills overlooking the ocean. There is even a small white sand beach right on sight. Unfortunately, the town of Tulum itself is a few kilometres from ...
