About halfway between Tulum and Playa del Carmen, Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya features a good white-sand beach with a protected cove swimming area, and caters well to families with an array of on-site water sports. Part of the beach is rocky, the fitness center is only so-so, and some of the restaurants fail to impress; but the property offers large swimming pools with excellent swim-up bars, a beautiful spa with a Temazcal area and a top-notch hydrotherapy circuit, impressive rooms for the price with double whirlpool baths and a good amount of space, an above average kids club with a separate swimming pool, a dolphin park (a pro for some, a con for others), nature trails along the coast and through the surrounding jungle and mangrove forest, a lazy river, a fun entertainment team that keeps activities going, and outstanding dining variety (two buffets and eight a-la-carte eateries with various cuisines). Activities include jet skiing, parasailing, beach volleyball, bocce, darts, dance lessons, live shows, snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing.
Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site for guests traveling back to the United States. In the event of a positive test, guests can extend their stay at the resort for up to 14 days at no additional cost.
