The hotel was amazing. Very nice grounds. Enjoyed the pool and beach. Belisario Perez was our server and took the stay from great to perfect! Very friendly and attentive. A great representation of the hotel! The hotel should be proud to have staff members like him as part of their team.

Royal Master Suite was perfect for our family (5 adults and 2 children). Beautiful rooms, excellent food, and a la carte restaurants every night because we were in the Royal category. We also didn’t have to stand in line for restaurant reservations- just needed to send a WhatsApp message the night before. So much to do and loved having the unlimited Xcaret pass

Some services are good, but others are not so good. And some employees treat people of diferente cultures differently than the same culture o Americans. The hotel was beautiful, the animals, and it was nicely clean. The food was not so good. But the restaurant food was amazing. Love the oriental and the steakhouse.
