All ages, but active types will be in heaven here.
Any – they all offer plenty of space. King and Deluxe Lofts earn their name via a loft with twin beds, perfect for young explorers.
The kids club – open daily from 9am until 6pm – organises an array of outdoors and sporting adventures (including mountain biking, zip lining, abseiling, fishing, archery, kayaking, stand up paddle-boarding, paragliding, horse riding and climbing). Cookery classes, arts and crafts sessions and mini-theatre experiences are also on offer. Bookworms can dip into the stash of tot-tailored tomes.
Little Smiths are welcome to splash around the family-friendly swimming pool. Parents should keep a close watch on less confident swimmers, as it’s not supervised.
Children are welcome in the restaurant, which even arranges fun activities for them such as pizza-making sessions.
When the kids club closes, babysitting (MXN$200 an hour) can be arranged. (Book a week ahead.)
No need to pack
