    Location 3.0 /10

    Between the bustling Playa del Carmen and no less lively town of Cancun, the hotel is located in the small quiet village of Puerto Morelos. We are here precisely on the dividing line between the hotel zone of the Riviera Maya and Cancun. The international airport is just 9 miles away. It takes about half an hour of transfer by shuttle.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The hotel's 126 rooms are divided into small buildings rising on two levels. Comfortable and well equipped, they offer refined decoration in beige tones matching harmoniously the painted walls. The motifs are fine. The lighting is carefully designed. Spreading on a pretty good area (215 ft²), all rooms are equipped with satellite TV, individually adjustable air conditioning, telephone for direct international dialling, a safe, a mini-bar (soft drinks, beer and water included), a kit for making tea and coffee, a large balcony with a table, a hammac and two plastic chairs. The bathrooms in all rooms have a bath tub and a shower, well presented personal skin care products, several towels in sufficient quantity, a magnifying mirror and a hair dryer.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    Built in 2001 and renovated in 2004, the Ceiba del Mar is suitable for the guests seeking tranquillity and rest in the first place. The lobby sets the tone: Mexican sculptures, a huge wrought-iron chandelier dominates the room, furnished with rattan and surrounded with lush green plants. Specifically, the owner of the premises, a Mexican, wonderfully manages the hotel, and the latter enjoys an excellent reputation in the region. The reception extends onto a restaurant, then comes a big and beautiful terrace overlooking a lake in the centre of lush gardens. The rooms are divided in eight buildings rising on two levels, all close to the sea, beautiful swimming pools, and an Italian restaurant. Three basins form the swimming pools one of which is big enough to swim. There is a terrace with swimming pool on the roofs of each building, it is possible to make a reservation for a private dinner ($ 20 in supplement). The wooden deck chairs lied with cushions and hidden in the shade of beach umbrellas are kindly made available to customers up to the beach. A spa centre, a library, a water sports centre are scattered in the gardens starting just after the reception, followed by a Mexican restauran to the left of the lake.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant serves all three meals buffet style. Its tables, made of rattan, nicely dressed with perfect tablecloth, lie between the hall and a terrace, which offers a gorgeous view onto the gardens of the hotel. The buffet is located in the rear part of the dining room. Five to six hot dishes are offered at each meal, not to count the grilled dishes and omelettes served within the cooking show. Local, international, Italian and Mediterranean specialities fill the menu. In the evening, the meals are served a la carte only. The Italian restaurant, located on the terrace near the swimming pool, under a large palapa roof offers an idyllic setting. The service is a la carte, upon reservation. However, the cuisine is a little disappointing. The hotel has a second restaurant serving Mexican specialities.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    The hotel's beach, which is public, presents a surface of sand large enough for the customers that it should receive. A wooden pier is used alternately for diving excursions, organising meals, marriages and gymnastics classes. As for the entire hotel, serenity has prevailed over the place. The beach provides wooden deck chairs with mattresses, hidden in the shadow of straw huts with palapa rooftops, but still retains a certain wild charm and is protected from the agitation typical of such resort. The sand is white, fine and cleaned, but the sea water is turquoise without being clear. You should note, however, the presence of some algae. It provides access to the town centre by foot (a few minutes).

    To know

    The highlight of the Ceiba's performances is organising weddings and romantic dinners on the beach for its customers. The spa centre offers a variety of care treatments (aromatherapy, personalised care with biotension techniques...).

      The latest high-end Club Med born among the villages, the Club Med Cancun Yucatan has reopened doors on 11th November 2006, after 12 months of work carried out in the wake of Hurricane Wilma. After a renovation in depth, this is a brand new exceptional village - 4 trident family - that the guests discover. Completely redesigned, from the infrastructure to the decoration and philosophy, it is for the whole family and is an excellent starting point for exploring the beautiful Mayan sites that are the wealth of Yucatan.

      Somewhere between a time-share and a club, this outdated all inclusive property is somewhat sleepy. The entire hotel is more suitable for a quick stop-off than a long stay. Several storey-high buildings, no entertainment, very little choice and little in the way of facilities: guests here will be confronted with the disadvantages of both small and large hotels without the advantages of both, apart, perhaps from the size of the two swimming pools. It's a shame as the beach is superb, though again not very well shown off!
