Positive :

Many things were positive , the resort is very clean and well kept, we stayed in the riviera section , rooms are wonderful and new , the bathroom is very modern , be careful if the tilles are wet they can get very slippery , all of the staff and the desk clerks were very helpful and smiling all the time. anything you ask for they just at your service. Cecilia at the desk is the best.
the bars were all good except the two on the beach the drinks tasted like water. there are 3 buffets they were all basicaly the same , food at any resort becomes repetitive after 3 days , the a la carte restaurants we tried the french which was very good , the steak house and the brisillian were not good. there was a BBQ grill on the beach Hambergers were very good.
the animation team were excellent they had a bikini party on the beach on Saturday, it was very enjoyable. they were on the pool close to the beach every day making lots of games and it is your choice to participate or not.
to my surprise they were no rocks inside the sea at all, I bought water shoes but never wore them once , the bottom of the sea was very good and this was the contrary of any review I read before.
the swim up bar was great , Raphael was the best to make our favorite drinks.
the visit to 5th avenue was great , you have to take a taxi $5 each way ,the street is very long and very enjoyable , lots of Mexican stuff to buy.
comparing to many resorts in Riviera Maya and to the many reviews I read , this is by far the best.

Negative :

the beach is very nice except for the sand bags on the left side which is affecting the view but after a couple of days you get use to it. and it does not bother you any more.
the sea was very wavy almost the whole week, the weather also was very windy, sometimes cold wind other times a very nice breeze.
the beach section of the resort is very crowded with many children running around , I don`t know how you can sleep well or relax at nigth with all that noise ,if you want to have a relaxing time you have to boock in the riviera section as we did because the pool is very quite there isn`t lot of people in this area and no children running around
the riviera section is far from the beach but the shuttle is running every 5 minutes , you won`t find that to be a problem.
