Ambiance-The words that fits best when you arrive at this property is tropical paradise. This is the newer section of the mega 4 resort complex, Grand Palladium Kantenah, Colonial, White Sand and Riviera. After staying here in 2010, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality and service.
Beach-One of the best beaches in the Riviera Maya. All 4 resorts share the same beach.

Little Known fact-The resort is marketed as 4 different resorts but really is one large resort with 4 sections.

Opportunities-The Royal Suites is the adults only section and if you can splurge a bit they have their own private pool and restaurant. I loved it!

Protection-In room safes.
Recreation-Between the tennis courts, water sports, jogging trail, fitness area and pools, families will have plenty to keep them occupied.
Rooms-All the rooms here are either Junior Suites or 1 bedroom suites. If you need two connecting rooms, they are in the White Sand and Riviera sections and need to book a Suite connected to a Junior Suite. There is the new Royal section with Suites and Junior Suites that is adults only.
