Location Information


• 13km from Playa del Carmen
• 25km from Cancun

At night, the hotel lays on a buzzy beach party – perfect if you’re heading into town after – and live theatre shows. Food-wise, there are six à la cartes including a cracking Mexican place worth putting your glad rags on for.

Please Note

While you're away, you can speak to us anytime - we're available 24/7 via the TUI App. You can also reach us by phone and SMS if you prefer. The easy-to-use TUI App is packed with info and tips. It sends you important updates, like your airport transfer times. Download the TUI App for free from the App Store or Google Play - if you switch on notifications, we'll be able to keep you updated.

Pools

The hotel means business when it comes to pools. There are three, as well as a couple of swimming spots for kids. Loungers are spread out all around the water’s edge.

Pool Scene

The sand is only footsteps away, and there’s loads of space for sunbathing there, too.

Food & Drink

Food from around the world is dished up at the international buffet, while the six à la cartes offer Mexican, Italian and Asian cuisine. If you get peckish between meals, snacks are served 24 hours a day.

Freshly-caught fish and ceviche is plated up at the seafood eatery, where the tables look out over the ocean. Then there’s the grill restaurant for filet mignon and New York steak.

Entertainment

A DJ gets the crowd going at the nightly beach party – many guests head out to sample Playa del Carmen’s nightlife afterwards. Entertainment, like karaoke, is on from time to time, and the sports bar is open around-the-clock.

Sports & Activities

When you’re by the pool, you can play a game of giant chess or compete in a volleyball tournament. Sailing, kayaking and waterskiing* are up for grabs at the beach, and there are two tennis courts.

Facility Overview

Three big pools sidle up against the sand. This is where most of the action takes place, including water volleyball, giant chess and poolside games. On the dining front, you’ve got a whole eight restaurants to choose from – ticking off Asian, Mexican and Italian cuisine. And after sundown, you can head to the beach for one of the nightly parties, or work your way through the cocktails at the bar

For sporty types, there’s football* as well as a pair of tennis courts.

Health & Beauty

The BlueBay Spa* deals in facials, massages and other body treatments. There’s also a state-of-the-art gym that comes with steppers and treadmills.

The room was garbage. Clean, but old, poor quality, the humidity caused the floors to be wet and very slippery (dangerous). The partial ocean view was dead trees. The balcony looked like it was...
