Decent getaway

I travelled to the resort with my 23 year old daughter for a 5 day spring break. The resort is approximately 55 minutes from the airport and we purchased our transportation with the package. It worked but we had to wait for another couple at the airport which was annoying. The check in went smoothly and we reached our room quickly.The pools are beautiful as well as the beach. The entire resort is spotless and brand new. The room was clean and we were upgraded to a partial ocean front room which was awesome. Our AC worked well and the room was cleaned everyday and the mini frig was restocked. The dining options were probably the bummer of the trip. The food was like "cruise food". We ate a lot of fruit and salads. The lunch buffet was the best option. The alcohol was "no name" but the drinks were OK. Most of the employees were friendly but very few spoke English. The entertainment was fun. We spent a couple of days at the pool with the DJ and the team was fun. They had games in the pool and beer chugging contests with vacationers from different countries. Lots of laughs. The shows at night were fine. All in all do not be afraid to visit the resort. We stayed at the resort the entire time and went for R&R and that is what we got... I think it was a decent value for what we paid.

Relaxing

This resort did not try to make you buy something or insist you go on an excursion, they simply let you relax and enjoy your time. My husband and I enjoyed the beach and pool area. Some folks complain about seating, but we never had a problem finding a place. The dinner buffet was awesome, something for everyone! They didn't have any top end alcohol choices, but drinks were delicious and plentiful. My only complaint would be that our room had two double beds that were pushed together for a "king"...but we made it work. Everything was clean and we felt really safe.

Magnificent hotel, staff, cleanliness, activities and entertainment Not one complaint everything was fabulous Be sure to take the ferry over to the island Mujeres and rent a golf cart. Go on your own, not a tour group.

Ok

All in all a nice resort. Everything was new and the cleaning staff did an amazing job maintaining the property. A few tidbits that people traveling with children should note: our room came with two double beds pushed together- a bit odd for our family of four. The hotel was able to get us a roll-away bed which made the bed sharing much more tolerable. Second, and perhaps the biggest gripe I had- the bathroom had a large semi-frosted glass panel in the shower which barely obscured the view. Perhaps we aren’t European enough for this resort chain but I am not comfortable with basically showering in front of my kids. At night the same glass panel illuminated the entire sleeping area when you turned on the light to use the bathroom. Not ideal when sharing a space with small kids who are light sleepers. Also there wasn’t a light on the patio so after the kids went to bed we could only sit in the dark outside- couldn’t see to read or play cards- dull for nights in. Resorts website wasn’t very informative. Dress code rules for wearing long pants and close toed shoes for men seemed silly in the steakhouse(which occupies the same space as the buffet during the day and isn’t air conditioned). Food was good for the most part. No real culinary genius but what I would expect of an all-inclusive. They don’t offer steak knives in the buffet room which makes cutting some food items impossible- especially when preparing plates for small children. Bar selection wasn’t very good. I wish they offered an upgraded premium bar option- tequila selection was weak! I wish there was room service. We arrived at 3pm and had been traveling since 7am and couldn’t eat anything but some pre-made sandwiches and nachos in the sport bar until 6:30 when dinner service began. With so many resorts to choose from, I would probably opt to stay elsewhere next time we go to Cancún nearer to nightlife and such.
