Positive :

Bouf Good, Good Choice, House beautiful, clean, but usually for a 5 *, great site, very nice clean, More swimming, MORE bar, More buffet, white sand beach, friendly staff.

Negative :

Bring your beach shoes rocky lot at the entrance to the sea and all the rest is hunky-dory, sandy beach blanc.Nos bedsheet stained but clean, our bed quilt the zipper was not working so all the cozy sorait time for a 5 * but all is not supose OK not often in the room anyway. Very humid in July, during our excurtion in Tulum it seemed to be eggs in a pan but it was better than being in Quebec with all the rain, put cream: the 30 and cap with a water bottle in hand and all is hunky-dory. Site so long a lot of walking but that's OK we beef like pigs and drink we drink a lot of time as it fattens least you always see the positive side of things.

Positive :

WOW, WOW, WOW! It's a place just beautiful! We liked everything. Those who have commented negatively, I wonder where they found them. The deluxe room Ste Jr: Exceptional, beautiful, a total cleanliness. Food: Hmmm, a real treat for the eyes and mouth (and I am picky) as well as in the buffet a la carte restaurants. Just to see the wonderful buffets awakens the appetite, not to mention that there's something for every taste. As for a la carte restaurants, really no problem in the book. I must mention the artist of the best shooters or Zacharias. Wow, besides being a very nice person, it is obvious he loves his job. Visit him at the Lobby Bar, it will make you one of his wonderful and so beautiful shooter. All the hotel staff is a real kindness. How beautiful to walk on the site that is very clean, well maintained and very Zen. Many beautiful pools surround this wonderful site. The hosts are really not achalants. They ask you nicely if you want to participate in an activity and if you refuse, they do not insist. They are very nice. Now about the beach. It was really something I dreaded ... But very pleasantly surprised. Well, yes it is better to have water shoes to enter the water, but beyond a few feet, it contains the very fine sand. Let me tell you that I really have not been disappointed with the beach and the sea of ??this site, quite the contrary! The beach is very long to make wonderful walks. Outstanding service on the beach for drinks. Very often we were to ask us if we wanted something. Bring bread in water and you'll be surrounded by lots of fish. Children (all ages) love! Listen, I can only recommend this hotel both his twin brother, is the Sunset. They are both identical and you can eat exactly the same restaurants you are in one or the other. We stayed two weeks at the Riviera and we have NEVER had a complaint about anything. Honestly, you will not regret.

Negative :

Only small problem, which is not really one. It must still be booked early to a palapa to hide from the sun. He hits really hard ;-) But it's really not a real catch for that is exactly the same in all hotels. This is part of the holiday in the south :-) Especially when we go in busy week ;-)

Positive :

We were four, two adults and two children aged 7 and 15 years. Very nice hotel. We have made several and this one in a tick more than others. We were in the Platinum section, mounted on the sea We had our small lobby staff and a private pool. There are lots of little goodies in this section of the hotel. Very satisfied. The cleanliness of the hotel is breathtaking. The beach is really beautiful (nothing to envy of Cuba). After the rocks in the water, there were small sand dunes we had water knee, we could feed the fish, really beautiful. The Salbe is like a white powder. We are not very pool and they were very nice, big. The buffet was very good, very good. In the evening we still had a la carte restaurants, we have made it 5 (because book too late). We made the Seafood (correct), International (very good filet mignon), Japanese (good), Italian (very good) and Mexican (very good). There is not much seafood in restaurants. The room was perfect. 2 double beds and one single bed. Small seating area with table, flat screen TV, DVD. Jacuzzi in the bathroom, shower and toilet, 2 sinks. Jacuzzi on the terrace with two chairs and a table and two chairs with a little lower cushions. The person was very friendly. We have not done any activity included and no tour. The farniante .. We recommend this hotel to 100 mph!

Negative :

2 negative points: at the entrance of water, we must wear shoes to protect against rocks, about the first 50 feet and the room smelled really bad. They have offered to change rooms three days later, but we were already installed, then we went through and put the "febreze"!

Positive :

The sun was at an appointment 8 days of pure good weather. Sensitive attention to it fesait 44 has 48 degrees celcius with humidex every day. By cons we were in July. The rooms are spacious and the hotel is gorgeous. beautiful beach.

Negative :

This is a complex of 1,600 rooms immence extent of several miles, we should always walk, there were well over train but it was extremely rare to powers. There were many people and we always expect. We waited over an hour and a half for a drink at the pool, and we had to wait over the buffet in the morning 40 minutes of my day to lubricate my aillor Tostes with a spoon. When we arrived there was a colony of ants on our patio, we could go after several requests they came settle the problem but after three days .... We have already had more than a 3 star service, the Mexican was not always too busy smiling and never available. This is a very expensive destination they want dollars for every American, even to go to the toilet, we would often some dollars $ to the maid and never what we had that something special. This hotel should be rated below 4 stars just because of a service, it does not make us feel important, is that Imperial is a 5 star.

Positive :

I loved it! I would go back anytime. We had a plate and well worth the extra. The room was beautiful, with ocean view, private pool is great, service is impeccable for Decks, thank you and Felix Romano. No problem booking the a la carte restaurants. I loved the Japanese and Grill, it seems that Le Fleur is excellent too. The beach is beautiful but there are rocks in the water, Do you bring beach shoes. The drinks in the Platinum section are really best, Mango Tango and Pina Coladas are delicious. The massage at the spa included in the package plate was excellent, as are massages on the beach. If you have a chance, go for your turn in Playa del Carmen, it's really fun. The Blue Parrot and Coco Bongo are really fun as bar and restaurant as Terra Merra is excellent. Finally, it is truly a 5 stars and especially after Platinum. I recommend this hotel to anyone. Marriages looked really good in this hotel and there were several couples on honeymoon. Excellent choice. I will definitely go back.

Negative :

The only negative comment I could say is that our Jacuzzis and our room on our balcony was not washed daily. But I guess it's something you can ask ...

Positive :

Super nice hotel very luxurious, well-maintained with marble everywhere and beautiful vegetation. The beach is beautiful. It should however water shoes to enjoy the entrance to the water as there are many small pebbles. The bottom water is by cons not always right and sometimes there are big stones. The pools are numerous and specific. There is a good animation around some and some are quieter. There are two main buffet restaurants where you eat very well. In seven days, neither do buffets presented the same menu and the dishes are many and varied every night. Nothing to say about it. The food and atmosphere are excellent Italian restaurant. There are also 5-6 other a la carte restaurants with reservation that morning or the next day. When it gets busy, the disco is a great place to have fun and dance. The bars at the beach and pool provide all the drinks imaginable, but are of variable quality. The drinks at the lobby bar is excellent! The room was very clean every day and always small refrigerator full of bottled water and soft drinks. All staff are very welcoming and smiling and tipping their obviously very happy even if it is not mandatory for such servers. The hotel attaches great importance to monitoring baggage and security of tourists. All departures and entrances to the hotel are noted. The animation team is excellent for entertaining everyone and there is a different show every night in the great theater which hosts 1,500 people. There is always the evening entertainment outside: music and exotic dances. With two trips to Coba and Tulum catamaran and two towers in downtown Playa del Carmen, with the sun at all times, it was an amazing week!

Negative :

Few negative comments. Sometimes it lack of towels for the beach when you come to borrow one with the card that is handed to us in check. The seats may be scarce on the loungers on the beach depending on the time of day, but it is still a place quickly if we try, even if it is not in the shade. All rooms are not near the sea but walking is not very long. In short, do not look for negatives, appreciate all the positive offers here! That's what I did!

Positive :

Luxurious, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean. Food at the buffet varied and more than respectable. Staff polite and courteous. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Negative :

He must get up early if you want to reserve a chair in the shade either the pool or beach and it is not as nice as I would have thought.

Positive :

The earthly paradise on the site (oasis vegetation, birds singing chairs at the pool and the beach in large numbers, bar service to our regular chairs). The rooms and impeccable service. The restaurants and buffets which the food was always great variety and high quality, friendly service and attentive. Shows and meeting places or relaxation in large quantities and all the more enjoyable than the other.

Negative :

Unfortunately the pool at the end of the week was cele problematic because it has greened and the rest of the week, seemed less clean though it took steps to maintain it. Unfortunately the beach was narrow and there are corals in the sea rather difficult to walk. The site if you like to walk if TB is difficult if one has trouble moving his or lon did not like to walk a lot but the trails are so nice and pleasant that many do not pass quickly.
