“I’m all about the kid-stuff: endless entertainment, family-friendly accommodations, child-centric restaurants and a Kids Club that’s cool as can be. But I’ve got that pampered, indulgent side, too, as a visit to my Kin Ha Spa shows – I always find plenty of fun stuff for parents to do while the kids are having fun. I’m like my sister resort, Oasis Palm – but a bit more upscale, with the extra amenities you’re looking for. I’m Mexican and proud of it: my dancing, dining and décor reflect the culture of Cancun, with my delicious Mexican food in the cantina and lots of activities for everyone.”
