Fodor's Review

There's no such thing as a standard room at this all-suite resort, where the most basic option is a spacious junior suite with a sofa bed, sitting area, flat-screen TV, and balcony. Family suites have bunk beds. Due to its size (477-suites in all), it may feel a bit crowded at the check-in line or at the pools, but if you're lucky (and quick) you can snag a chaise in the outdoor areas. The aqua park with a pirate ship and waterslide—one for kids and one for adults—is

the perfect way to cool off. Mayan-inspired artwork is found throughout the lobby and other public spaces, whereas the suites are decorated in a Mexican-colonial style that features ornate beige and gold-tone accents. Guests are allowed access to the resort's four sister properties in Playa del Carmen and Cancún.
