The beach is a very long one, with beautiful sand and super see-through water, so clear that in deeper areas you can see thru almost 160 feet. Must do snorkeling and many other activities at this hotel.
Dining: There is a main restaurant and a snack bar for all guests. VIP's have access to a very elegant and exquisite Italian Evening Dining Restaurant (must wear elegant clothing). Restaurant has superb a la carte dining. Staff is very friendly, and do everything to satisfy you.
Nighttime entertainment is in two languages(English and Spanish), but very cheesy!
However, besides all this positive stuff here comes the warning: You can get poisoned from some of the food! My dad and I did, and we lay in bed for 2 days, and just went to the pool (no sightseeing). However, my mom was OK - probably it was the water they had in the restaurant. My dad and I drank water from the restaurant, while my mom always drank Evian bought in the shop, so maybe that was it. Overall: Very Good Hotel!

The timeshare units are set in four buildings located on a private section of the resort.
We stayed in the two bedroom units, which is a studio and a one-bedroom unit (attached). The one bedroom side has a privacy bedroom, combination living room/dining area, small kitchenette, nice size bathroom and a private Jacuzzi on the outside deck. The studio side has a queen bed, sleep sofa, sitting area, and bathroom. Make sure you bring an alarm clock, as they are not provided.
The resort has three swimming pools - a private pool for the timeshare section; an activities pool (with music and games), surrounded by an eating area with two bars, the beach and the lobby; and an "adults only" pool with swim-up bar.
The beach is large and clean, with plenty of chairs and straw umbrellas. There also are non-motorized water sports, and beach games.
Check-in was easy, quick, and efficient. The staff was cordial and friendly throughout our stay.
Activities are provided every evening.
Scuba diving is easy to arrange as the Reef Club has an excellent dive operation (Sand Dollar Sports) on-site. The dive masters were tops.
Additional activities can also be booked through the resort, eg. windsurfing, wave runners, etc.; take a tour of the city and/or Mayan Ruins; rent a car; and much, much more.
The resort is a little remote from the city, so if you plan on going to the city, plan it around a tour of the island and the Mayan Ruins.
Food at the resort varies. There is a Buffet Restaurant and two other restaurants. For breakfast, the buffet is very nice, and the selection is bountiful. Lunch is available at a poolside/outdoor area or the buffet section. The lunch buffet includes fresh fruit and vegetables (including artichoke, asparagus, mushrooms, hearts of palm, etc.). I can't recall staying at a timeshare resort with such an extensive fruit/vegetable selection. Dinner is another story. We tended to stay away from the Buffet Restaurant for dinner. It really wasn't too good for dinner (outside of the fresh fruit and vegetables). For dinner, we made reservations at either of the two "plated" restaurants. One restaurant is Italian Fare and the other is International Fare. We ate at these restaurants for dinner (almost exclusively), and had excellent meals each evening. Just make sure that you make reservations (early) for these restaurants ... they book fast. Even though there appears to be plenty of seating, the resort intentionally limits the seating so that you have a pleasant dining experience.
I give high marks to the Reef Club. It is a well-maintained full-service resort that will provide a wonderful vacation experience ... especially if you are a scuba diver. Taking into account its ease for a scuba diver (and excellent scuba diving operation), I rate this resort an 8.5.

But wait, the second year was wonderful as well, and in the third year, things got even better. We saw the resort built out of coral rocks. The addition of flowers and a new á la carte restaurant made it a place to relax.

The beach is large and clean, with plenty of beach chairs and straw umbrellas. There also are non-motorized water sports, beach volley ball, tennis courts, etc.
The resort has three swimming pools. One is a private pool for the timeshare section. The second pool is the activities pool (with music and games - our kids had a great time) which is surrounded by the outdoor eating area, two bars, indoor buffet eating area, the beach and the lobby. The third pool is an "adults only" pool with a swim-up bar.
Resort Experience:The timeshare units are set in four buildings located on a private section of the resort (not far from the Scuba Diving operation ... Sand Dollar Sports). The two bedroom units are a studio and a one-bedroom unit (attached). The one bedroom side has a privacy bedroom, combination living room (with sleep sofa) dining area, small kitchenette (no stove, but does have a microwave), nice size bathroom and a private Jacuzzi on the outside deck. The studio side has a queen bed and sleep sofa, sitting area, and bathroom. Each side also has easy to operate air conditioning system and a computerized safe for your valuables. One thing missing from the rooms is an alarm clock. We were aware of this before we went, so we brought our own. We also made sure that we had a wake-up call each morning ... in case the electricity went out at night.
We arrived early and weren't able to immediately check in, but we were invited to have lunch, etc. by the pool. Our rooms were available when we finished lunch. We were two families, and the resort staff did there best to make sure that our two 2-bedroom units were in the same building (in fact, we were next-door to each other). Check-in was easy, quick and efficient.
We met many owners and guests who return often.
