We checked into this resort for one night at the beginning of our vacation and three nights at the end. If you're expecting a typical Westin, this hotel may not meet your expectations -- it's a bit more shabby (sloppy painting, orange water came out the tap in the bathtub, outdated decor) but still a great place to stay -- the AC works well, there are plenty of pools and a great view of the ocean. (Even when hotels in Mexico say you can drink the tap water I still don't drink it just as a precaution). They give you bottled water, which I use for drinking and brushing my teeth.
Tip: Stay on the first floor. The rooms have gorgeous rounded ceilings painted blue.
Also, the Sunset bar has the best guacamole and ceviche we had the entire trip. The meal at the restaurant inside was disappointing, though.
If you've never been to the Cancun/Maya Riviera area I would only stay a night or two here. It's in a very touristy area and therefore feels safer than Playa Del Carmen bc so many people speak English, but you don't see the real Yuctan. Even though Isla Mujeres is touristy now it feels more authentic than the hotel zone, so does Playa Del Carmen.
Also, you can save money by taking the R1 or R2 buses around the Hotel Zone area.
