We first visited this property in 2007 and returned last week. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in the past 7 years and also things haven't changed.
Property: This is definitely starting to show wear. Not much has been updated since our last visit. The TV's are outdated, the beds are still very hard and uncomfortable. Minor maintenance issues were spotted throughout.
Atmosphere: The age of the guests has greatly dropped. It's now more of a Carnival Cruise atmosphere. There were large groups of single Mexican guys having a good time with tequila volleyball and beer drinking contests on the beach. This was a big turn off for more mature visitors like ourselves. It was more loud and rowdy. The pool was clean and quite warm. The grounds were clean and well kept.
Food: The food was average to slightly above average. I can't say we ate anything outstanding for the three nights. However, we had good food with decent service. The sexy coffee is still a big hit.
Room: We were upgraded to a suite and liked the room. It was clean. The bed was uncomfortable. We NEVER had hot water in the shower. The lamps needed to be repaired. The ceiling fans were loud.
Value: We went not expecting much for our $600 per person Funjet deal, including airfare. So, overall, we gave it an average rating. We got what we paid for. The hotel is more of a Holiday Inn/Marriott Courtyard catering to Mexican tourists. The non-Mexican tourists like ourselves had an enjoyable time.
