I traveled with a group of 10 people: my mother, my father, myself (19), my younger sister (15), my best friend (18), my grandpa (82), my aunt, my uncle, and my two little cousins (7 and 9) and the sunset lagoon made accomidated all of us. Traveling with such large group and having such large age differences, we all were worried about how the resort was going to turn out especially after having a nightmare expereince with Delta Airlines that caused us to be two days late for our vacation. Sunset Lagoon went over and beyond all of our expectations. Being very squirmish about sleeping in hotel beds, I was nervous about sleeping in my first hotel bed in Mexico. But as soon as we got into our spacious rooms at the Lagoon, I found that this hotel was the cleanest hotel I've ever been to. I normally don't sleep very well in hotel beds, but I slept like a baby in these beds. They were freshly prepared each day, so you knew all the linens were clean and fresh. The food at this resort was beyond amazing. Each day they had different types of GOURMET food available for you to eat and everything was soo delicous. I don't think I've ever eaten such good food on a vacation before in my life, it was that good. To say that the staff of this resort was amazing isn't doing them justice. All of the employees of the Sunset Lagoon were so friendly, helpful, and genuinely nice. Because the resort is on the smaller side, it's easy to befriend the staff because you see them around all the time. My friend and I became good friends with quite a few of the staff before our week-long stay was over. I will put this disclaimer out there before I write this next section: No one in our group had difficulties communicating with the employees of the resort. Although my parents (who only speak English) were a little frustrated that they didn't speak as much English as they would have liked, my friend and I (spanish speakers ourselves) would strongly disagree. Between our spanish and their english, we were able to communicate just fine. I would advise anyone traveling to any country to at least learn some of the basics of the language before traveling- just in case. It's important to remember that you are in a different country and that they speak spanish there, so being putoff that they don't speak fluent english isn't really right, so to speak. That being said, I felt that there were many employees there that spoke English, even if it was a little broken. They're doing us the favor by learning our language even though they don't have to, that's what I kept reminding my parents. Anywho, they were excellent regardless. Extremely warm and welcoming. To end it all, I have to say that this has been my favorite vacation that I've ever taken. I've loved everything about this resort and I'd recommend it to anyone and everyone who is looking for a place to stay in Mexico. While people may be bummed that it isn't on the ocean side of the strip, they make it easy enough for you to travel back and forth between the sister hotel (which is on the ocean). If you are considering staying at Sunset Lagoon, please please make the decison to go! It is a beautiful resort with wonderful employees that really want to help you make the most of your mexican vacation in paradise. All 10 people in my party gave Sunset 5 stars... each!
