First timers to Cancun. The location was great, withing walking distance to everything. 20 something sons have a great time at the clubs a block away.
Food was everything you could ask for. Wine not so good, could have been a better quality of drinks in our rooms. The view was to die for, but the beach was a bit small. Staff were awesome especially with all of the events that they had during the day. Night time lots of fun for us older folk but the younger generation needed to head to the clubs. The nightclub on site was not so great.
The gals in the spa were wonderful and I would recommend a pedicure.
Overall our trip was great, the weather was overcast , but that was no fault of the Hotels. I would recommend this place to anyone. We give it a 4 rating because it just is one step below it's sister Hotel the palace. When we booked we were told it was a 5 star, but I think 4 better rates it. But again no complaints because it was much livelier than the Palace. Guest from that hotel would come over to ours to party in the pool bar.
