This was my second trip to Cancun with my last trip in 1994. This resort was beautiful! Very clean and pretty. I highly recommend an all-inclusive resort. We had no worries about our meal or drinks and never had to worry while sitting by the pool because someone always came by to offer us a drink. We ate at the Steak House one night which was good but is outdoors and right next to "party" pool and Riu Cancun (construction) so it was rather noisy! The buffet was excellent and offered a wide variety of choices for the pickiest eaters. I cannot say enough about the staff who work so hard and were always available to meet any of our needs. We always saw people cleaning as well.
My only two negative comments would be a slightly hard mattress but I've slept on worse. The lobby has a musty smell that you adjust to but I've heard others say that's common in Cancun.
We booked a tour through Lomas Travel for the Jungle Maya adventure. We took our 12 year old daughter and had a great time snorkeling, swimming in cenotes, rappelling and zip-lining. It was booked with alltournativetours.com which did a great job!
Overall, the best part was sitting in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean with no worries whatsoever. Probably my all-time favorite vacation!
