    “Good family location”

    We spent a week here as a family of 6. Overall a good spot and are thinking of going back near year. Pros - lots of things to do. Nice beach, nice pools. Beach volleyball Basketball, table tennis etc.... Buffets were good and the la cartes were excellent. The staff were all very good from the check in to the bars and restaurants. I hope the resort pays them well! Cons -'Our rooms were dated and not the cleanest, also try to get a room further down the hall not to close to the mall it's very noisy until early in the morning. -There were some topless ladies on the beach which we found disturbing as we were there with our family. All in all a really nice place I would recommend to anyone.

    “Miscellaneous Thoughts on Caribe”

    I'll try not to repeat the other comments on Caribe, but we were extremely happy with the property. A couple of thoughts: A La Carte: We were fortunate at check in to receive 2 nights of A La Carte, though we only qualified for 1, so it's possible if one nicely asks, you might receive an extra. That said, we used one at the Seafood Restaurant on the same night as the Seafood buffet at Caribe. My husband snacked on a few items at buffet and looked it over, and felt after dining in the restaurant that he would have done as well at the buffet. The restaurant was frenetic, and hard to relax, though the food was good. Our favorite A La Carte was the Japanese Tokyo restaurant. Although we thought we weren't going to get a table at the cooking grill, somehow we did and enjoyed the performance greatly--the steak and lobster were excellent. My husband just mentioned that a dessert other than the one he had ordered looked good, and it appeared along with his order. Service was exceptional, both in the restaurants and throughout the hotel complex. Entertainment at the Carbie theater was good, especially considering the demand for talent with so many resorts. Our favorite was the Circus act. The Michael Jackson review was okay and the Tenors had lovely voices, but seemed repetitive after a bit. But the seating was great and visibility great from many locations. The mini-golf seemed like the best-kept secret for entertainment. If one plays during the day before 7, it is free. It's at the Caribe, right next to Strikes. It is mostly shaded and instead of corny clowns and windmills to shoot through, the 18-holes are set in a tropical setting, with wicked sand traps, rocks, and wood "fences" to go around. We had a great time--especially since we aren't ones to sit for hours in the sun. Another note on food: We had to leave on an early 6:40 excursion and the buffet wasn't open. Luckily the Strikes lounge is open 24/7, I believe, and we had a lovely breakfast before we left. I have a few notes on an excursion we took to Chichen Itza, but will title it elsewhere. We've been to a few resorts in the area, and loved the Caribe--only downside is the 1 hour plus drive from the airport.

    “2nd visit - not sure if I will return”

    My wife and I stayed here in June 2011 for our honeymoon and liked it so much we decided to return. The resort is large and sprawling which we liked as we could generally find an area that suited our mood. The beach is gorgeous and well maintained as are all of the common areas. The staff are excellent and I am always surprised at how polite and courteous they are when dealing with guests that don’t always reciprocate. The bar service is generally excellent and I feel like you get a good value for the money spent in this area. The room we had was average and had the basic amenities you would expect. My complaint is with the food served at the buffets. It is terrible and mind you that I am not a picky eater. I’m not sure if it is the buffet that was in our section or what – we tried another one and it was marginally better. I don’t remember the food being this bad when we visited in 2011. I got 3 tacos in the Cancun airport that were better than anything that I had at the resort. On a positive note you get your choice of 4 dinners at the various restaurants on the property and these were substantially better. Get your dinner reservations immediately upon arriving as they fill up fast. I want to love this place and give it 5 stars but the food is lacking.

    “Beautiful Resort "s"”

    My wife and I thought we would throw in the towel on the other islands this year and check out Mexico for our first time. After much research, searching for the best beaches in the Maya Riviera, we came across this resort. The property"s" are beautiful. Everything on the grounds is well maintained. There was never a shortage of chairs on the beach or around the pool. The buffets were good, with a few hits and misses. We went for dinner every night between 6:30 and 8 and never had any troubles with line ups for food. We were given 4 a la cartes for the week and selected the following. Mexican-Great atmosphere and excellent service and food. Seafood- Very rushed, lobster was great. Steak House- My rib steak was no lie 1cm thick. Tasted great, but I need my meat! Great salad bar to make up for it. Spanish- Amazing! The beaches were absolutely beautiful. We chose this resort as we love to snorkel. We were able to go off the pier a few days, but there was a bit of a chop on the water for 5 of our 7 days. All seaweed was raked and collected by 6 a.m. If you like to walk for miles, this beach is for you. Pools were very clean, you could eat off the deck. Bar service was great, longest wait was maybe 3-4 minutes for a drink. They do offer beer taps for the guests to use instead of waiting in line while Joe-Blow orders 6 Mojitos for the whole family. My only complaint was the cleanliness of the room. I have given the resort a review of 5 stars because I only use the room for sleep. We had cleaners in 3 times. We had blood stains on the bathroom walls from the previous occupants. The tub was clogged and the drain would back up into the tub. I pulled it apart and pulled out a razor cover that had been there for some time. If it wasn't the bedding, top of toilet seat, or the general floor area, it wasn't getting cleaned. Fridges were always stocked with cold drinks and snacks and coffee was replaced if needed. I would recommend to all. We left our 3 kids at home, and in some ways regret it as there was so much for them to do. We also took part in the deep sea fishing, cenote tours and snorkeling with turtles. Definitely a trip to remember.
