Very pleasant stay, we’re planning to go back - user review
After several trips to Central American beaches, this was our first experience with all inclusive resort and, although we thought we would miss the experience of eating at a different place each night and enjoying the local culture, we were very happy to not have to dress for dinner or decide what t...

Nice Hotel Great Value - user review
Felt secluded and yet close enough to everything we wanted to see. Smallish beach, nice pools. Food very average. Grounds were immaculate. Great value for price. Awesome staff. When getting drinks ask for top shelf and you will get it otherwise they will pour liquor i have never heard of. Traveler's...

Would go back in a heart beat - user review
Great place, absolutley beautifal gardens,yard. Much better then concrete palace next door with it's palm trees in perfect rows. Every staff person was kind, happy and helpful. Food was good. Hard to get into Mex resturant for evening meals but possible. Drinks were very good, plentiful. Nice locati...

great place - user review
Great place, very clean, amazing plants and trees. The food was good we had a great time and I'd recommend it to anyone. 10 mn walk from playa del carmen with lots of trendy shops, cafes, nightlife...The kids club did not accept toddlers under 4 and th...

Very cute resort with forest and beach. - user review
Great place...

Accomodations were nice & clean/food and drink not so great - user review
I think for the same price, if you plan ahead, you could get a better quality all inclusive for the same price. Unfortunately, the above ranking does not separate all inclusive aspects such as the food. The food was the most disappointing part of the hotel. It was OK. In addition, the bar seems to r...

Good value - user review
In December 2006 there was a tidal surge, and this hotel lost a good part of their beach. However, the food was delicious and the facilities are beautiful, so I would stay here again. The Playacar subdivision in which this hotel is located is very nicely manicured a...

Outstanding staff and super friendly service. Very recommendable also with kids - user review
location, size and arrangement of rooms in smaller house units just right. Although hotel is a little aged it is very well maintained. food and drinks are plenty and served by extremly fast and friendly service (even without tipping). Would go back at any time. .very family friendly. plenty of activ...

Can’t wait to go back - user review
Love the hotel and it's surroundings. It's not huge and luxurious but suits us just fine. The staff are friendly, more than accommodating, and the food has always been very good. As buffets go, this one demonstrates variety and quality. The Italian specialty restaurant is excellent. They did lose so...

Small Boutique Hotel! - user review
Love the hotel. It's small but filled with everything you ever need. We love the natures around the hotel filled with tropical, lush plants. If you like a small all inclusive hotel open air hotel, then this place is for you! Traveler's tip on shopping.Save your local souvenirs shopping until you get...

Good hotel for the most part - user review
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay in the Reef Club (as it is called) for the most part. A few pointers: 1. Get a top floor, unless you want to hear crying babies. The bottom floors are usually for families. Walls are thin. 2. The hotel allows timeshare people to pose as hotel workers who try to h...

Nice hotel grounds and good food - user review
The grounds of the hotel were great. It was like a lush jungle. The food was good and the service is great in the buffet. Some of the rooms have a musty smell kind of moldy smelling. Overall the place was great. All of the rooms are 3 story villas, get a room that the balcony faces to the inside of ...

Solidly positive experience, but don’t expect a beach - user review
The Reef was well run, with comfortable rooms, great pools, quality (in comparison to other resorts) liquor, and friendly service. The buffet is standard mediocre fare, althought the two reservation only restaurants can be highly recommended! Unfortunately, their beach has disappeared, as have most ...

Nice grounds, lacks in service - user review
The resort grounds where very nice and jungle like lush vegetation. the service at the restaraunts was mediocre at best and the foo...

Don’t waste your money - user review
The service was absolutely horrendous. We sat through two breakfasts where we were never offered coffee or water to drink. Not only did the wait staff act like they were doing you a favor by waiting on you, they were short handed everywhere. We nick named the pool snack bar girl the warden by the ti...

Just as charming as I remember it from last visit - user review
The small room capacity of this resort,it's unique jungle setting, and friendly staff make this hotel a very comfortable place to relax. The ambience is not unlike that of a B&B, where becoming acquainted with guests from all over the world is a natural occurrence. In general, the food is well prepa...

Mixed feelings - user review
There are both very good and not so good things about this hotel. The overall tropical jungle like setting is attractive and relaxing. The small size of the property is also a plus you're never too far from whatever you need. The kitchen and wait staff are all very nice and helpful. The close proxim...

not impressed - user review
This was a nice small resort if that is what you are looking for however, the staff ran hot and cold. There was alot of eye rolling when asking for drinks or food. When we needed a taxi back to the airport we had to pay a deposit to the belboy of which the cab driver never recieved. the mexican and ...

Beautiful - user review
This was our first all inclusive hotel stay and we enjoyed it greatly. The hotel's grounds were absolutely beautiful and the staff really made an effort to keep everyone happy. It happened to rain every day we were there so the staff improvised several activities to keep the rain from getting everyo...

Wouldn’t return.... - user review
Time share gimmick is horrible... stay away! Every time you want to look into an excursion, they are there trying to sell you a time share and give you the excursion free . Trust us it's NOT. We saved maybe $10 for the 5 hours of our vacation time we devoted to them. They don't even show you the com...

Nice hotel but no more beach - user review
We came to this hotel the second time after a visit in November 2003. Overall we enjoyed this stay very much and can recommend the hotel. Just be aware that hurricane Wilma has taken away most of the beach and what remained of it got washed away while we were visiting this December. So do go if you ...

Would definately go back! - user review
We just returned from 5 nights @ the Reef and when I can afford it again I will return. I loved the pool location and pool area which is right next to the ocean with beautiful ocean views and right next to the restraunt for easy access to meals when you are @ the pool/beach. The staff was GREAT and ...

We Loved It! - user review
We just returned on 04/30/07. The rooms are comfortable, good food, nice beach and pool. We travel after tax season every year and this was one of my favorite places. The staff is great and very trustworthy. We lost our passports with over $500 inside one of them and it was returned before we even n...
