We ate here the first night we were in Cancun and the cuisine was more upscale Mexican food. I had the shrimp and it was delicious. The sirloin was good, too. My husband and the other men had that dish.

Amy, the hotel concierge can help you make the reservation. I believe the Mariachi performances start at 8pm, but talk to the hotel concierge. They will set you up.
