Positive :

Complex with its beautiful marble everywhere and spotlessly clean places, nothing wrong .. Room clean and large enough, all services on site. The buffet restaurants were up to my expectations after reading the reviews here before I left, it's repetitive as food, but there's something for everyone. From largest to smallest everyone was satisfied. The pools are beautiful and there is plenty of palapas and chairs around the pools. For the beach, c politically correct but do not forget your water shoes you will regret it deeply. Again palapas in quantity more than sufficient, no need to book up at dawn to his. Beware of waves some days it is sometimes quite violent depending on winds .. The a la carte restaurants are very good overall, again everyone finding his account. Go to Playa Del Carmen ca worth a visit for shopping, you will make a good business if you hold on to your end!

Negative :

Small cement sidewalks are not more when it rains .. my daughter is injured by slipping and I almost took myself a nice landed more than once, either barefoot or in sandals ... WARNING! The service either buffet or a la carte restaurants is actually very slow but people are pressed on vacation .. enjoy your wine (laughs). The hotel is not prowling the fact is, there are still some adjustments to be, for cons with the low prices this year enjoy AC worth the cost .. For those who do not like small walks and do not go well, you have to walk much the complex is huge. Bon Voyage on this ..

Positive :

place beautifully located, very large and very beach longue.La majority of staff is of Mayan origin and are very proud. We were upgraded in Platinum class, privileged section overlooking the sea at will Internet, 24 hour service, private pool etc. ... the complex is new, so there are some small minor adjustments to make to get everything A1.La food is abundant and very varied. The complex is built with a very rich architecture and its mirror helps us find us easily. There are over 1000 rooms, that is so very grand.Nous have paid $ 1272 for the royal treatment ... s must wait for a price increase for the winter prochain.c is a magnificent 5 * impeccable

Negative :

No, n 'not being like "whiners" apart perhaps the very large number of Americans. Just do not be invaded and AC, that is true everywhere, but when you go to Mexico, the Americans are still very many, you have to go to Cuba or with (laughter) ...

Positive :

Very clean, really a beautiful complex, the activities proposed by the animation are really interesting. The beach, I was expecting worse, there's just rocks on the edge but once past the first few meters it going. The pisines are beautiful. For the price I paid is nothing major to say. I will return tomorrow morning. Free Internet.

Negative :

Little choice to the buffets, but at least it's good. I have not done a la carte restaurant as it does not appeal to me. The famous shower that inundates the bathroom .... The chairs are very close to one another at the beach. No snack outside, it would be nice for dinner.

Positive :

We went from May 3 to May 10, 08. The hotel is very nice, very clean and new. The decor is modern type (zen) there is marble everywhere and lots of place to relax it. There are different pools according to what you want with or without music. The sandy beach is beautiful and the color of turquoise water enough. There is always music or entertainment on the central square in the evening around 20:00. Note that the Saturday night only merchants sell their items Handicraft. There are several excursions available but prices are very expensive. We can go to Playa Del Carmen by taxi (about 15 minutes) it costs $ 26.00 round trip. The buffet restaurants are open late at night until 23:00 and buffet restaurants open early in the morning (7:00).

Negative :

We made eight trips to the far south and in hotels of all categories and it's 4-5 star hotel where we ate the least. The diversity of food is not the only problem but the way it is cooked or primed. For a la carte restaurants is the same. We have a very difficult to do a drink either at the buffet restaurant or bar service is very long (15 minutes before being served). We also find it hard to get reservations for a la carte restaurants. To the beach it's true there are rocks in the water, but it is only the beginning, more off the bottom of the water is sandy. In short, we are on vacation .....

The pool is great. A beautiful beach with a little rock when you enter the water. The buffets are correct and a la carte restaurants are excellent. The staff is courteous and the site and the rooms are worthy of five stars.

Positive :

The hotel is absolutely gorgeous ... there is marble everywhere! The rooms are beautiful, the scenery is beautiful, beautiful beach and the evening with the lighting is very warm and relaxing! (By the way, we are eternal whiners, my list of negatives is longer than positive, but I would still recommend this hotel, I spent a truly dream and I would stay here again!: ))

Negative :

For a 5 star, the food was fine, but nothing much in the buffets in restaurants to choose from ... The service in restaurants and bars is really crappy (few exceptions): no smile even when you leave the tip, the wait is very long to get service to bars and buffets, there was no service either, I even had to service myself a coffee morning .... Be careful when you go to the beach, it will bring sandals to go in the water, the bottom is very rocky, it's dangerous for injuries ...

Positive :

I loved my stay at Sunset Princess. The hotel is beautiful and exceptionally clean. The pools are incredibly beautiful. There are several and different activities. There is entertainment both day and evening and the staff is very courteous. The dricks are excellent especially the margarita. I will return one day for sure!

Negative :

The sandy beach is beautiful but in the sea there are corals so you have small shoe range to not get hurt. The buffet is very cold and often redundant.

Positive :

Very nice site. Nice room. The facilitators of the Kids Club were great.

Negative :

Far too great for families with small children. You can walk 1km to go from our room at the beach, depending on room location. No regular shuttle to take us to the beach. La carte restaurant very disappointing for a 5 *. Service very ordinary for a 5 *. Very rocky to swim in the sea

Positive :

Very nice hotel, the site is very extensive and comprehensive. The room is beautiful with a nice bathroom. The food is very good at the buffet and in 5 of 7 restaurants in the map. The beach is long and works well as a side than the other. The Spa is nice. The music on the central square in the evening sounds great and is catchy. The Platinum option was able to meet all our expectations with the concierge for all services included.

Negative :

When we arrived, there was nobody to greet us and we waited at the reception at the Riviera for 1 hour needlessly because our enregristrement Platinum was at the reception in the Sunset. In addition there was no Bell Boy and we took care of our luggage to our rooms ourselves. It was a bit hard as the first approach. Because the site is large it takes a long walk, there are shuttles, but not very often and they stop at 23:00. The room was always cleaned in the late afternoon between 16h and 17h00 that I found unpleasant because we were leaving every day at 8:30 and did not return that evening. The food at the restaurant a la carte seafood that has well and Grill Vaqueria means there was not any kind of steak that was served there no longer is correct. For five other restaurants was excellent. By cons, the service is often too slow between courses. As for the sea is rough seas we had the entire time except one day. The sea corals so difficult to get inside without getting sore feet. When you go further there is more sand in the bottom. For those who do not swim or are fearful it is not pleasant. There is no Latin music, salsa, meringue, etc.. on site or at the disco, too bad.
