New all-inclusive 4 star in 2006

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 6, 2006

This was my first time in an all-inclusive resort, and I was only there for 2 nights, but I really enjoyed my stay for those 2 nights. I'm not usually one who can sit around and do nothing all day. I looked forward to a nice hotel, but I had doubts as to whether I could keep myself busy on this last day. Well, it turned out there was not enough time to do nothing. I was way too busy swimming, doing aqua aerobics, playing beach volleyball, working on my tan, napping under the palapas, swimming some more, hitting the wet bar, chilling in the jacuzzi, reading a book on the beach beds; and enjoying the view of the torquoise water and palm trees, the sounds of the crashing waves, and the feeling of the cool sea breeze. Now this was life.

All-inclusive means that food & drink (including alcohol) & activities are included in the price. We were lucky & got a 40% off deal through cheaptickets.com, and we paid on $180 per night for both of us.

Unique Quality: Since the hotel is fairly new (openned in Feb '06) and it was low season when I went, there were not many people there at all. I did not have to fight for a beach chair, palapa, or anything. The pool was practically all to myself. Enough activities are scheduled through out the day to keep you busy also.

The only downside is that there is NOTHING around the hotel in walking distance. If you want to go anywhere else, you will no doubtedly have to book a tour or a car through the hotel, which may be expensive. You might want to consider renting a car from the beginning and drive there. Xcaret & Xel-Ha are not too far away from Puerto Moreles (20-40 min maybe). Cancun is probably 30 min away and I'm sure staying here is much cheaper and less crowded than the hotels there. (I did visit one 4-star and I couldn't even get a full-length beach chair cuz the pool area was so packed.)

Directions: in Puerto Morelos (you'll see signs from the main road down the coast)
