Amazing holiday with my friends

I´ve stayed at the Kantenah with my girlfriend and some of my friends for two weeks. We really enjoyed our time there. During our stay the ocean had a lot of seaweed which caused that we didn't used the beach to much. Instead we spent our days at the pools. Furthermore our group had a lot of fun when we did the archery and riffle shooting at the sport center. Joselyn gave us a pretty good instruction and we also meet Manuel there who recommend us to take part at one of the sports activities like soccer or tennis. We definitely will come back soon and hopefully will experience the same great time we did last time.

Lovely holiday

After 3 amazing weeks away we just had to share our incredible experience. This holiday had been long awaited as we have visited here four years ago and after an amazing time then we had to return again and with no regrets at all. All staff in all areas were polite, friendly,happy and so attentive to our needs. Big shout out to Mary who offered pool service, Patricia in the main lobby area and Isabel these three lovely ladies really made the extra special effort with us and we got to know them and looked forward to seeing them. The hotel is absolutely stunning so clean everywhere, there are always staff around cleaning up all over the complex. The food was brilliant and always had such a wide variety of freshly cooked food that catered for everybody's needs. Our main reason for this review is to inform others about the kids club. When we researched this hotel years ago we never once saw a review about the kids club, but never really wanting to use the facility before we departed I wasn't really that bothered. On day one 4 years ago my eldest son was begging me to take him there, I was very reluctant and explained it was a family holiday and he did t have to go he could be with us after hours of grinding me down I gave in and took him I let him go for 45 minutes and watched the whole time anyway by the end of the holiday our son had to be prized away from the club and I had completely changed my mind about the service that is offered there. The staff were great with him and he enjoyed the various activities on offer, so when flying out this time around I had no concerns about both my boys going to the club. My 8 year old threw himself into everything going and the staff were great with him, however my 3 year old tried it and decided it wasn't for him this was until his big brother told him all the things they did and the amazing shows they did. Soon they were both off with the staff sometimes us not seeing them for most of the day they did craft activities, learnt basic Mexican dressed up as various things but it was the fabulous shows they loved the staff work so hard with the children ensuring everyone of them is involved. Not only go the staff work long hours they then stay on and see these fabulous shows right through until the end. The effort and passion put in by this team really does shine through we were all very sad on our last evening and both my eldest son and the staff were in tears saying goodbye to each other. So for anybody who is against kids clubs just think again and give it a go because my boys had the most amazing time there. A massive thankyou to Brenda, Valeria, Nayelli, Alejandra, Tania, Daniel and Berenece. We miss you guys lots lots of love your prince and Taker.

Fantastic holiday

First time to Mexico, we spent a week there end August my husband and I. Very happy with our choice, beautiful resort, big choice of restaurants, food was great and service as well. Room clean and comfortable, we really liked the snack bar in front of the beach where a live band was playing at lunch time, and thanks to our nice bartender Valentin, always cheerful! The only thing that was a pity but it’s nobody’s fault, there was a lot of algaes from the sea, depends on the period I guess. But they worked hard to clean it up and the whole resort by the way, was also kept very clean . Special thanks to Paola who greeted us so friendly at the reception , and also to Victor at the Ribs And More restaurant . We most certainly would go back!

Wonderful hotel
