Fabulous Vacation !!
We had a fantastic stay at The Fives this month! Our days started with an excellent breakfast with wonderful service provided by Isidoro, Santiago and Alejandro at Flavours. Then we enjoyed the beach and pools. Great service and conversations at those locations provided by Pedro and Bernab'e. We had so much fun there! And we had Great lunches at the Taco Stand! A big Thank You to Ceasar- our very kind, knowledgeable and super generous Butler! Our evenings were spent dining at excellent restaurants with exceptional food and services. Later we enjoyed the entertainment, craft markets, and time at The Gin Bar. We also had a wonderful morning Spa. Excellent service and beautiful facility. The housekeeping was very nice. We always found treats in our room and everything restocked. We are so grateful for the excellent service and kindness the whole staff at The Fives gave us during our stay.
We had our wedding here and brought a whole group. It was perfect. Best customer service. Everything went perfect for the whole visit. The jungle/monkeys/pigs made the trip so much more exciting too! The food was amazing. We cannot wait to go back!!!!! 100% recommend.
We are a couple with a baby and we had a Memorable stay at the fives beach. Everything was so perfect, the rooms are so clean and meticulously decorated, the food and service in all restaurants is succulent and presented with finesse (our favorites: Thai, Mexican and Japanese). The pools, gardens and the beach are perfectly maintained. Last but not least, a big Up and Kudos to each and every member of the personel we met during our stay who are working hard despite the COVID to make our stay MEMORABLE. 1000xThank you. Perfect hotel for the perfect vacation. We will definitely come back.
A Lifelong Memory!
Our family had the pleasure of getting away during the holidays and enjoying some time in Playa Del Carmen at The Fives. Besides some room issues the trip was much needed and worth it during the pandemic. The resort did not require a mask however to ensure your safety as well as those around you, please mask up - it only helps and is just the logical thing to do. The restaurants and bars were pretty decent - not sure if it’s because of COVID but this trip and the vibe was different to ones we’ve taken in the past. Felt like the all-inclusive wasn’t fully all-inclusive as certainly things had additional costs associated with them (I.e the ice cream shop or certain drinks on the menu). The Gin Bar was definitely a sweet spot - make sure Paulina is there - she’s super cool and sweet and her drinks were on point! One of the highlights of our trip was by far our photo shoot with Javier Alvarez. He was extremely professional, courteous, understanding and patient. He did not rush and our hour session become a fun filled hour and half one. The best part was seeing the lovely pictures he captured a couple weeks later and WOW...simply wow! We are so glad we decided to do a family photo shoot because it captured some wonderful memories which will cherish for a lifetime. This is definitely something we will be doing for every future family vacation as well. Highly recommend booking with Javier if you get the opportunity - you will not be disappointed.
Spring Break at Last!
Overall we enjoyed our stay very much. The staff are friendly and helpful everywhere at the resort. The resort is well maintained, landscaping is beautiful. Because of Covid and the past hurricane, not all the restaurants are open, which was a bummer but the food was good (some places it was great) everywhere we ate, nice selection. We got to experience everything as we were there for 2 weeks. We had some favorite staff, Bernardo at Flavours was the best, he totally got our family! We missed him the few days that he was off while we were there. Juan at Arezzo, Fernando our housekeeping person, Julian kept us entertained with water aerobics and of course his fun Spanish lessons, our concierge Jorge kept us on track with our reservations and then their was Carlos the bartender at the adult pool, ask him for a mini beer, yum! Not included in the all-inclusive was Casa de Rosa, a must to experience. Its a 3+ hour dinner experience that is well worth the extra cost. It was fun and delicious! Rosa and staff are incredible. Lastly, masks were worn by all staff, and most guests. Hand sanitizer available everywhere. We felt safe and that they were doing all they could do to sanitize and keep us safe.
