Replicating three regions of Mexico, this vibrant setting features stone fountains, handcrafted furniture, and colorful linens imported from the western state of Michoacan. Waiters dressed in sombreros dance between the tables while women in traditional costumes serve olive bread from wicker baskets. This is one of the best places in the Hotel Zone to get authentic Mexican cuisine—so be adventurous! Traditional fare like moles enchiladas (stuffed corn tortillas
covered with thick chocolate and chile sauce) is fabulous here—and if you're unsure about what to order, the waiter will explain the different chiles used in many of the dishes. Treat your palate to queso fundido Oaxaca, a specialty of bubbling cheese dripping from a stone pot onto handmade tortillas. The glass-enclosed patio with its water view is a great place to linger over tequila or a tamarindo margarita. The live music here is Norteño style. Unlike the neighboring nightclubs, this lively atmosphere will remind you that you are in Mexico. Meals are on the heavy side, so come with an appetite.

This was the worst experience in our 9 days in the area...Perhaps on any vacation I've ever been on... I purchased your Cancun guide and followed it religiously as I always do...this one was dead wrong. My husband and I are retired and travel quite extensively, I've purchased your books on every trip...We arrived on a Saturday evening and should have seen the red flags when only 4 tables were occupied. We were asked where we were staying by the host
when we walked in which I thought was odd but I believe that's how they determine in you are worthy of them. I ordered wine and my husband a beer. We noticed the table next to us had very nice glasses and I had some smaller cheap glass? The waiter was rude couldn't explain the menu, when I asked what cactus leaves were(a salad they offer) he didn't know. We are from New Mexico and had no idea and we still don't after ordering it, it was awful. We were given butter but the bread guy with a basket never came to our table. The mariachi's went to the other 3 tables at least two times and never came to our table. We ordered 2 salads and opted to split the beef filet-a $40.00 entree. One piece was fine, the other was a gristly, disgusting piece of who knows what...it was awful. I've never been treated so rudely in a restaurant. Please revisit this. On a better note Ziggy's in Tulum was fabulous! That was amazing! We ate at 2 of the Grand American Coral Beach restaurants by your recommendation and they were delicious. Thank-you for letting me vent...maybe it'll save someone else from going, it's not worth the ridiculous price they charge and for the worse service I have ever received.
