Whether your one for relaxing with a book in hand, taking part in watersports or having some splash-filled fun with your little ones. The Sensatori Mexico caters to all with its 5 pools, including an adults-only pool, a kids’ pool and an activity pool.

Do you suffer from a bad case of withdrawal symptoms if you don’t get your daily gym fix? Well, don’t worry because this hotel has it covered. The property has a fully-equipped gym which guests can take full advance of with its opening hours of 05.00-23.00, so there’s plenty of time to burn off those All Inclusive calories. Or, if the gym isn’t for you there are plenty of activities to get involved in from kayaking to beach football and yoga.

If you prefer to go on holiday to relax then a day at the world-class Vassa Spa* is essential. Treat your toes to a much-needed pedicure or sweat out those unwanted toxins in the steam room.

Sensatori Facilities

Time For Indulgence

The Sensatori prides itself on its culinary excellence, so guests can expect a gourmet experience like no other. With 5 restaurants as well as a main buffet there’s something to suit even the fussiest of eaters. The seaside Mexican restaurant Zocalo is a must, serving up a selection of authentic dishes such as tasty tacos and stuffed burritos you’ll get a true sense of Mexico’s world-famous cuisine.

Now it’s time for some evening drinks and the Mojito lounge is the place to start. Offering 18 speciality mojito’s you can try a different cocktail every night. The kiwi mojito is pretty special but it is still worth putting the hard work in and working through the menu. Still something missing? Entertainment perhaps? Then catch one of the nightly shows in the Roof Garden lounge.

Time For Relaxation

Depending on your preferences there are a variety of room types to choose from. The hotel is split into sections – adults-only, premium and family. A junior suite is classed as a standard room type, but for those guests looking for the ultimate lap of luxury, swim-up, sea-view and honeymoon suites are also available. The adults-only swim-up junior suites are a great choice as they come with a king-size water lounger ideal for those days spent soaking up the sun.

Insider’s Tips 

We suggest that you try the Zavaz restaurant for lunch. This eatery offers plenty of Caribbean treats, but if you’re simply after a snack the gourmet burger is a must! Open to everyone Zavaz is a great choice if you fancy a change from the buffet.

When it comes to beaches in the Caribbean you can’t go far wrong, but just to warn you the beach at this resort is often filled with seaweed. However, this is cleaned up regularly so don’t be put off. Alternatively, there is a bus service to the stunning Playa Maroma beach. Offering 500 acres of sand this shore is one of Mexico’s best kept secrets and is worth the short bus ride. Fancy a spot of shopping? Then Playa del Carmen (also, part of the hotel’s bus service) is the place to do some serious wallet damage.

Such trips will come at a small cost, but to make things easier for you there is a hut located at the end of every block with your private concierge inside. Here you are able to book trips and if you head down early you can choose from a scent and pillow menu to make sure your every requirement is met.

Finally, your stay won’t be complete without a visit to Le Chique.This Heston Blumenthal-style restaurant offers a modernist cuisine, captivating setting and whole new world of flavours. Besides, if you are booked with Thomson one visit to this restaurant is included in the cost of your holiday.

*Some restaurants and activities have an extra charge.
