Right off the bat, we were encouraged to buy alcohol. There were too many "extras" that required more charges. I'm not a regular Bingo player but I was astonished it cost almost $50 for my daughter and I to play the basic game for 1 hour. The shore excursion to Tulum was well worth the price though and the food was good but the staff wasn't particularly attentive especially after they received their gratuities

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I enjoyed the food but the service was lacking. The bar staff, where the free drinks were located, was consistently inattentive (maybe because they didn't receive tips).


5 out of 5
Singers were great and dancers were very good . The revue show content wasn't phenomenal but was pleasing. The comedian was so so but comedy is't my first interest anyway

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
No one went above and beyond and some were even less helpful than that, especially after the tips were doled out
