    My husband and I had our wedding at PJC on November 4, 2019. We also stayed at the resort for 8 days along with our 74 wedding guests. The hotel was wonderful! We preferred the smaller resort as we could easily run into our guests and enjoy drinks and meals with them without even planning it. The beach was perfect and kept extremely clean. Barely no sargassum. The staff work very hard to keep everything clean. Both adults and kids in our group loved the resort! Our ages ranges from 2 years old to 82 years old. The service was top notch and everyone was extremely friendly and attentive. Our boy Jimmy at the lounge bar was our fav! He had such great charisma. Daniel on the beach was such a hard worker and always made sure we were taken care of at the cabana and at our beach walk out suite. Jeni was also on top of it and took great care of us on the beach. We had great chats and service from Josue at the beach bar. He was such a sweetheart and always a step ahead of us. Miguel with the security team was also super friendly and always checking in to make sure we were well taken care of. The staff and service were top notch and one of the best we’ve seen in Cancun. The food was actually really good and I enjoyed all our meals. The service in the ventanas buffet was also top notch and that VIEW! Wow! You truly felt at home anywhere you went in the resort. Our wedding day was hands down the most amazing day of our lives. We planned our wedding within 10 months and the process was seamless. Paola, Mariana and Maria were extremely professional and on-top of everything. I never felt neglected by the WCs even when the wedding was several months away. Thank you Mariana for all your help leading up to our wedding! Maria was our final coordinator and she did not disappoint. She went above and beyond for us and was the sweetest person. You could tell she genuinely loves her job and we even had a “moment” when I was thanking her during our reception where we were both almost in tears. I am eternally grateful to Maria for all her hard work and ensuring our day was as perfect as could be. There were some hiccups, as there are in ALL weddings, but there was nothing she didn’t handle and none of our guests noticed any of the issues. We had our ceremony in the chapel and moved our reception indoors due to weather but it was the best decision. We even extended our reception from 2 extra hours to 3 and it was the best decision. Best 6 hour reception and worth every penny! The service, food, and drinks were all on point! PJC is an amazing resort! We are already planning our return trip. This was my parents first time in Mexico and they set the bar high! The are ready to go back. Thank you PJC and team for making our time with family and friends and more importantly our wedding the most memorable day of our lives!! See you soon! With love, Almidred and Jose

    Flight cancelled so Am Airlines put us up.

    Lovely beachfront resort. Various dining options. Clean spacious room. Particularly liked the Italian restaurant. Very kid friendly. Nice lounge space. The staff was friendly. A little noisy and crowded.

    I usually tend to stay at adult only resorts. That being said my goto's were out of budget for my short stint. My friend and I chose Pj's because it is part of the playa brand, and they seem to do things right. Check in: super easy and great service. We were 3 hours early for check in, but a room was ready. He gave several options and we chose what worked for us. Our luggage was brought in promptly by the bellhop. Food: we tried all the restaurants, and liked the Italian the best. The 24hr lounge didn't have anything that looked appealing. Just my opinion. As far as buffets goes, the Ventanas was supirior to Deck 74. I was disappointed that between 11 and 1230 there were very limited options for food. Coffee shop: my favorite stop! Every morning I would get up, get an iced coffee and a small pastry from the coffee shop. Jahir is the best! He would greet me every day and every evening with a warm, genuine smile! I looked forward to seeing him every day! We ordered the room service for breakfast one day and it was absolutely fabulous! Beach: spectacular beach with plenty of chairs. There was never a problem to get a good spot. Norma was our beach server and she was fantastic! Pools: we only used the main pool a few times, as it is smaller and usually filled with kids (family resort, so not a problem, but we didn't have kids). Again, never a fight for chairs and no need to get up at 5am and stake out a spot. The entertainment crew was great though. I enjoyed the 11am and 4pm water volleyball. That's my favorite wherever I go. "wait for the whistle!!" Nightime entertainment: we only watched 2nights entrainment as the first night we were exhausted. The outdoor dinner and fire show was spectacular and the lasting dance in the ballroom was also top notch. I am surprised that more people didn't watch the Latin dance. They missed out. Room: we had a basic room on the first floor with a view of the kid area. Nice hammock on balcony. Honestly, we spent very little time in the room that I didn't care about it's view or location. I was sad, however that we only got towel art on the first day. My other playa resort had towel art every day (and had turn down service, but it was higher end). The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean.

    Panama Jack & Real Club Presentation

    Panama Jack This place is great they have like a lot of restaurant to choose from, 24 hours snack place, gym, sauna and the service is top notch. The food in every restaurant is great. A lot of options Mexican, American and Italian. The food in “At The Sunset” was fantastic! Make sure you get there early because seats get occupied pretty quick and there’s no reservation. Real Club Presentation After checking in they pointed me to the women at the back, her name is Geri. She was very nice but, told us that she will tell us about what’s in the all inclusive package. She then told us that they have a 1.5 hours presentation for us. It’s not, it took us 3 hours. We were introduced to Alfredo who toured us to the other hotel, Zilara then he brought us back to Panama Jack in their office to give us “the offer”. Note that in the beginning, I already told them that I’m not planning to buy any kind of time share whatsoever. In the office there were two other person who talked to us. They presented us with the packages that they have. To be honest I felt the pressure while I’m inside that office which makes it really hard for us to say no to the stuff that they’re offering. I just want to go out and go on with my vacation. In the end I almost said yes to one of the offer but told them that I want to think about it until the end of my vacation. I don’t want to make impulsive decisions. Guess what, you can only get the offer during that presentation. In the end we get the freebies 2 hats , a beach bag and a 2 days free when we com back. Those free two days can only be used a year apart not 2 days within the same year. Overall, Panama Jack is a fantastic all inclusive resort we definitely enjoyed our stay except for the real club presentation that’s totally not worth it.

    15 day stay

    Newly remodeled and very nice. Elevators still need work, but are safe. We are a big group (30+), and have returned for 14-years. The workers ALWAYS treat us great! Food this year was exceptional in all restaurants. But be aware, depending on your priorities, the new Mexican Law stops alcohol service until 11:00am in bars, and none after 11:00pm - even though "all-inclusive". We were told a "special license" can be purchased, but Panama Jack's doesn't have this. Do other hotels?? Just so people know because we were not told until there. We WILL be back to spend time with our friends.
