I'll start off with I've been to Mexico 6 years in a row now staying at a different resort each time. This was the most expensive out of the six and our least favorite. We always travel with 5 people, getting 2 rooms.
As far as the pool, amazing. We also had a swim out room, which we had to upgrade. They told us $100 per night per room and we talked them down to $60 a night per room. My parents shower didn't drain so they had water all over the floor. Paint needed to be touched up, air didn't get that cool. We also found a cockroach in our room the first morning there.
The beach was only super sandy in one area. Otherwise it was all seaweed. And once the resort ended it became all rocks.
As far as the food, we were really disappointed. The buffet was closed 2 nights while we were there which is hard if you have picky eaters. The buffet was also limited and small. We have been to places where the buffet was never ending. Also the room where the buffet was, lacked air conditioning. Having lunch in there wasn't enjoyable since it was 85 degrees out. The specialty places weren't the greatest we have been to either.
The resort overall was older. They tried updating it but you could tell. We have been to RIU, Barcelo, Princess resorts, etc. for much cheaper and they were a lot nicer and newer.
