A majestic Resort soars about the Caribbean Sea in the center point of mainstream Cancun, steps from the Galeria and Caracol shopping centers in the heart of nightlife and activity.

Sensational architecture sweeps the skyline,a grand Resort is filled with imaginative flourishes in design. High hand-painted ceilings are adorned with flowers and frescos, and Spanish-style oil paintings will appeal to the art lover. The d├ęcor is rich and stately but also on the wild side and will tickle your fancy if not your fantasy!

Domes which are decorated with intricate mosaics cover the pool bars; the ambience is Moroccan- Mediterranean outside, with the color white brightened by flower beds, crystal water and tall feathery palms. Long walkways front the restaurants offering seating areas and a vista of the ocean, perfect for an after- dinner drink on a balmy night.

Two swimming pools face the ocean and a third has a tiered waterfall flowing like a glass wall.


This beachfront property is located in "Corazone", across the street from the Convention Center.
