This was a wonderful hotel on the best beach in Cancun. Given the hotel's location, the beach was not distroyed by the recent hurricane. The sand is powder fine, and the thatched umbrellas offered plenty of shade if you need to stay out of the sun. Mario worked our area of the beach with a passion delivering water, food, drinks, even suntan lotion - whatever was needed. The service was excellent. The hotel also has a beautiful pool - but we are beach people so that was where we hung out.
