This is a wonderful resort. The food at the buffet is always plentiful and excellent. The Mikado is my favourite a la carte!! Certainly worthy trying to get a reservation for the show but the food is excellent all the same. The beach is great for swimming and the pools are full of activity.

I went there because it was the official resort for the Xel Ha's Triathlon. My room wasn't ready when I arrived and it was being repaired. I had to bear a disgusting smell in my room. The hotel is very far from everything and the resort is huge - the distance between every hotel is very large so you always...
