No AC in the room

Our room did not have air conditioning, after multiple calls a technician finally visited and told us it was fine. After the next call, the new maintenance man told us the slider wasn't closed properly, after the next call, maintenance told us this is the best that it gets. The hotel staff was completely rude and refused to move us to a different room. The bedding also smelled sweaty like the AC has not been working for a while.

This is a fantastic place to visit, for a relaxing get away. Great rooms, lots of activities, daily entertainment and outstanding Buffet restaurant. BUT.............the 24 hour snack bar is a concern. A group of us booked at this hotel for my daughter's wedding. The night before the wedding, my daughter and 4 friends went over to the 24 hour snack bar. They had hamburgers. Unfortunately, 3 of them were vomiting in the middle of the night.........including my daughter (bride)..........and the other 2 didn't feel well for 2 days. Luckily, my daughter felt better by noon, the next day. When I reported this to the front desk to a guy named Victoriano, he simply said "are you sure she wasn't sick because maybe she drank too much?" These people at the front desk don't seem concerned about customer service. Would I go back to this hotel, yes.........but I would warn people to avoid the snack bar and expect average service from the front desk.

From the day we arrived....till the day we left...we were pampered!!! The grounds are beautifully maintained...the pools and ocean were stunning. From the hotel staff, to the bartenders, wait staff, and couldn't ask for more friendly or welcoming people!! We loved every minute and hated to leave!! Looking forward to our next trip!!!

Excellent resort when reading up on the grand bahia principle you will see two one called tulum the othe cobra it's on the exact same resort but you pay more for stopping in the cobra. But tulum is the best one. You can visit both anytime as the resturants are split between both resorts. Trolly cart takes you around the resort day and night.. Plenty of entertainment day and night. Caters for all ages. Right on the beach which is very nice clean and long. Water sports of all types. Plenty restaurants some need to book in advance. If you want to adventure out lots of trips to go for. All tour operators on site or book with the hotel. Shop around with both as they compete with prices. There is a small hasienda at the Start of the hotel routes and have entertainment on plus market at night. Would highly recommend if you want to stop in this area.. one hour from the airport so we never went into Cancun. Oh dear that means I will have to go back lol enjoy
