AllMusic4/5 stars[3]
The Village VoiceC[4]
Rolling Stone3/5 stars[5]

In a contemporary review for The Village Voice, music critic Robert Christgau gave Ricky Martin a "C" and dismissed its "slicked-up rhythm workouts and romantic pap" as conventional tactics from "one more crappy pop star".[6] Rolling Stone magazine's James Hunter gave it three out of five stars and felt it lacks the excitement of Martin's 1998 album Vuelve because of its remixes and Diane Warren-penned songs. However, he said that Martin's take on Latin pop is made interesting enough by highlights such as "Livin' la Vida Loca", "Shake Your Bon-Bon", and the "perfectly constructed ballad" sung with Madonna.[7]

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, senior editor Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the album four out of five stars and said that despite moments of filler and outdated production, its songs are balanced well between uptempo dance-pop songs, power ballads, and midtempo pop songs on "a big, bold album with something to please everyone, from his longtime Latin fans to housewives with a weakness for dramatic ballads.[8]
