1. Good price for what you get - ocean front rooms have a great view
2. Clean rooms, good room service (they do a good job cleaning)
3. Good Food all the way around - nothing special - but good enough
4. Service is excellent - the wait staff - hotel lobby workers etc... are all very friendly. No one every told us we couldn't do that, or have this - they were all extremely accommodating and friendly.
5. Nice Pool area / Pool Bar
1. Beach front is lacking room - hard to really enjoy the beach here because it is so small (next trip might look at a hotel where there is more beach front)
2. Sun gets blocked by the hotel when you are near the pool (depends on time of year, but there is more shade here than I would have liked)
3. Hotel seems a bit older, not as fancy as the pictures looked - probably because the hotel is 10 years older than some of the pictures they used.
4. Beds are not the most comfortable - and heads up: When you order a room with double beds, they are pushed together, so it will be like you are sleeping with whomever is in the "other bed"
Lots of reviews mention a mold smell, and yea, something smells a bit, but that is impossible to avoid based upon how much moisture is in the air - I didn't smell anything out of the ordinary.
Overall I would not rule this place out on my visit back to Cancun, but I would also shop around and look for potentially a newer hotel with a larger beach front that gets full sun all day. If I could give it a 3.5 rating I would have. (don't forget to like this review if it has helped you!)
