Built exclusively for cruise ships and cruise style holidaymakers near what was once the quiet fishing village of Majahual. They built it in the style of the ancients? But assuming the ancients were Cunard travellers. But the fact that it's new provides some benefits - mostly that the area is largely undeveloped, so the diving and snorkelling is on unspoiled reefs and the Mayan sites in the jungles behind it are some of the least visited and quietest along the peninsular...Kohunlich and Dzibanche. There's also sea kayaking and dune buggying? The down side is that it's very much for shore leave. Lots of shops and fast food outlets, but there are more food stuffs available in Majahual.
