We got a very good 3 nights deal and decided to try a resort in Cancun (before that we only stayed either Playa Del Carmen or Shkaret).
After reading couple of negative reviews, couple of so-so reviews and few good reviews we decided to give it all to faith and never got disappointed. I loved absolutely everything about this hotel - cozy property, restaurants, bars, the fact that I could get coffee and time of the morning ( I'm a "5 o'clock" coffee drinker and lots of all-inclusive places offer coffee only starting 8-9 in the morning)... But what we liked the most is the staff. Really amazing and sincerely friendly people.
I would especially like to mention: Ignacio at the lobby bar, Javier at the buffet, Roman and Cesar at the Mexican Ala-carte restaurant. We really made new friends with all this guys and I would go there again just for a reason to say hi to all of them.
Other than that - food is great, drinks are perfect, service is excellent.
On the down side - gym is a joke, but it's pretty much the same at all the resorts, so we simply took a bus and went to the gym in the city, for 10 bucks per person.
Beach is not that big, but I had no feeling of it being crowded. I don't like the whole idea of limiting of the swiming area, but I had no problem walking a little along the beach and swiming in the open area.
