The shuttles don't come around often enough and are often too full to get on, which is very inconvenient for a large resort. Also we booked an a al carte on our last night but the re4sturant was closed so we never got to enjoy it. A al carts are booked up for at least 4-5 days ahead of time so you can't get to enjoy them all. Would not go back

Stayed 9 nights, beautiful beaches, kids really liked the pools. About a15 minute walk from the family section to the beach with kids. Don't rely on the trolly, it's slow and full. Restaurants were good, but really hard to get into. Beer was cold, Sun was hot. Buffet was just ok. Kids club looked underwhelming but the kids loved it!

The beach is beautiful. It is kept very clean and there is plenty of space for everyone. No fighting over chairs or position. Do not expect staff to go out of their way to help you. Tipping doesn’t seem to mean anything there, so I would advise not tipping unless you feel obligation. Stay away from the cart transport. It’s really only a 10 minute walk to the beach from the farthest rooms, and you won’t have to deal with everyone shoving each other for a seat. It was ridiculous how everyone was behaving trying to get on the shuttle. Food was good everywhere. But here is a huge tip: when you arrive, download the app for the hotel and book reservations to the specialty restaurants asap. Even if they show full, you can call and get on the waiting list, which worked 3 times for us. Resort staff will not tell you anything about how things work there when you arrive, so download the app straight away and you should have what you need to make the best of your trip. When we arrived, the reception had “no record” of our reservation, even though they had been emailing me confirmations regarding transportation and my stay before my arrival. After a stressful hour, we were finally given access to the room we had booked. It honestly felt like we were being taken advantage of, and I had to haggle just to get what I had paid for. They were “out of hacienda suites” and then apparently one appeared out of thin air when I pushed back. Find somewhere else to stay.

Probably the worse one ever. Food wasn’t good at all. Doesn’t take much to make your guest happy, but they couldn’t even do that.

I like to walk, so there is a place to walk here, but comparing how we were before, a couple of years ago, I would say that it has not gotten better, on the contrary, it has gotten a little worse.

Check in was not good. We booked 3 rooms 6 people, 2 people per room all inclusive. When we were checking in we were informed that only one room with 2 persons the other 2 were booked with only 1 person per room, so we had to pay a lot more money at premium rates.

The unique thing was that the beach and the water in the ocean are excellent, we were not hungry, but there was not much seafood. The sauna became paid, although before that we were free. The transport that transports people was not enough, the influx of people was large and it was necessary to wait for a long time. Thanks to the service staff, they work perfectly. Thanks.

This resort is outstanding! The staff at the Festival Restaruant Belinda and Iztel were incredible. The attention, the quality of the food was amazing. The only thing I didn't enjoy was seeing the recycling options were not the best. This is certainly an area of improvement. Perhaps offering more options to separate glass from.paper from plastic would be helpful. Other than that, my stay was great, I highly recommend this resort!

This property reeks of cheap. Cheap food, cheap, bottom of the barrel alcohol, zero pool-side service, just yuck. Pictures are better than reality. TONS of walking. No convenient with kids or families.
