We just visited for an all inclusive timeshare promotion week of June 2 2014. We were very pleased with everything---We liked the mid-size (we usually vacation at the very huge Mayan Palace, and this was a refreshing break from that large resort), the location, the amenities, the restaurants and especially the staff. The only thing that took some getting used to was the belching car transport ferry just to the left of the resort beach, but that was only for a few minutes a few times a day.
The beds were the most comfortable in Mexico--unlike the rock hard mattresses in most Mexican resorts and hotels. The room was well appointed, even having a mini kitchen in the lock-off room. My husband loved the hammock on the porch.
Special kudos to the enthusiastic activity staff of Pedro, Tonya, Alexjandra, Victor and Eric the Amazing bilingual MC. We went to some sort of exercise class every day, yoga, water aerobics or Pilates. The staff kept the classes fun There was some sort of entertainment every night---much appreciated unless you wanted to go clubbing.
The restaurants had a great deal of variety, and we enjoyed trying some new Mexican (and Greek!) specialties. We went to the outdoor buffet one of the days for variety and liked that too. We found there were hangouts---the lobby bar and patio for after show socializing. We took the stinky ferry to the island that protects the beach one day, and zipped around the island on a golf cart---we particularly enjoyed the park at the end that traverses the bay and Atlantic ocean. We did not experience any of the service problems or delays reported by other reviewers, and were quite delighted all in all.
