  • It seems to be a beach here tentatively, but it is a ferry terminal than it. It is about a 3-minute drive from the hotel zone.

  • my visit to Cancun was a week ago and from what has been commented the sail the truth was one of the cleanest I visit, and that I have traveled several times to Cancun from the others is a reality that there is no longer water so clear or so full of this seaweed , you can see from the plane like almost all this cafe color, but the water of this beautiful beach, I even saw the beaches of other hotels that I visited in previous years nothing to do with the past years, that if it is a very public beach is piled up people crowded people , but the water is clear

  • Really good place, you can take good photos with friends.
  • relatively uncrowded. decent off shore snorkeling. clear yet kind of cloudy waters. free (?) seats with umbrella behind ocean spa hotel. this is a cute lil public beach between many boat docks. i was debating between a 4 and 5 star rating, and decided to go with 4. while this is a nice beach, it isn’t absolutely breath taking like some others.
