I still love this hotel. Excellent area right on 5th ave.
Of all the people on the plane, we were the ONLY couple that got dropped off at this hotel. I would of been freaking if it was our first trip there but we knew what we were getting in for. We asked for our same room we had last January and we got it......bonus!! It was perfect as wireless is in reception area so we just would go out onto the patio and log on. I think we were the only english (canadian) people there! Serious!
I would not say this is a family resort as there is no entertainment and the pool is very small (never used it). It is a walk to the beach but we dont mind. Beach is beautiful, little crowded at times but oh well. I do wish they would have some kind of snacks on beach. Serving alcohol and no food isnt good. Most all inclusives have something at beach. We ordered from Kool (associated resort right beside beach club area), expensive. Cheese quesidia was 80 pesos and order of fries was 55 pesos. Not much food at all. That i would really like them to improve on, food at beach. Burgers, hotdogs, fries, salsa with nachos etc...
At the common restraunt, it was not unusual to not have a fork! We ate some meals with spoons. Not a big deal, just an inconvenience. That was when it was real busy. I would like to see more salads at the buffet. I do not eat meat and the one and only salad they would put out, it would have ham or chicken in it. Green salads and veggies are good to have. Not everyone wants a hot lunch/dinner.
If you want to book an excursion, see MARCO in the reception area. We booked with him and he is great. Give him a try. Nice guy to talk too if you need info as well.
Overall if you want a quiet hotel (not resort) with nice courtyard and your not looking to be entertained......try it. Not a 5* so dont expect it. And last dont expect a soft bed. EVERYONE in Mexico has hard beds, that is just the way it is so stay home if you want a soft bed or dont complain. Take Mexico for what it has to offer you...especially the Mayan Riviera.
