What an amazing hotel. Great staff. Great service. Great room. Even though we were in a room near some construction the noise didn't bother us any. Food was amazing. I was nervous about getting sick from the food, enjoyed all the fresh fruit and didn't get at all sick. Just a beautiful location, beautiful beach and a perfect vacation!
More than I expected...

We went to the Gran Porto Real in March 2006 for 5 nights. My dad had checked into this resort last year and was disappointed to see that the hurricaine had wiped out about 2/3 of their beach, so there wasn't much to that. There were many boats moored to the beach, so not much room to swim. The hotel was beautiful, staff was friendly. We were stuck in a horrible room at first (room 313) which was the smallest Junior Suite and located behind the elevator, so the noise level was high. We were swiitch the next day, by our request, to a nice room (332). Very spacious rooms, clean, and great housekeeping. The biggest thing that impressed me was the quality of the food; we had never stayed at an all-inclusive before, and I was always warned about them, but the food was fabulous. Basically anything you wanted for any meal. Albatros, the buffet-style restaraunt, was where we ate a couple evenings, but mostly breakfast and lunch. Il pescatore and Maria's were also great; great service as well. The biggest disappointment of our trip was that it apparently was a prime spring break location for high schoolers; there were a couple large groups of kids with minimal adult supervision. They were so out of control at times that the bar at the pool was shut down early in order to stop serving them. I was under the impression that they didn't allow spring breakers, that was one of the reasons we chose this resort. They also had nightly entertainment, which was very impressive. I would definitely stay here again, however, there are so many places to eat in PDC, that I would like to venture out more. The resort has a prime location just blocks off 5th Ave., the main shopping area.

Top Local Tips for Playa Del Carmen

Too many vultures Too many vultures and if u wander watch out for the deviants

Tipping For the all inclusive, you don't have to tip, we did at first, but found there was no need. We did leave a tip for room service and transportation.

arranging airport transportation/arriving early or staying late If you fly into Cancun and come on a tour, the "free" shuttle from the airport to your hotel can involve lengthy waits and unnecessary side-trips to take other travelers to their hotels. Conserve your vacation time by taking a taxi in half the time instead; your $30-40 will be well-spent. ***Also note that, if possible, hotels will often make available to you a "hospitality (free!) room" if you arrive early or wish to stay beyond check-out time (as in the case of an afternoon flight); ask for this accommodation and spend a little extra time having fun instead of sitting at the Cancun airport!
