My husband and I stayed at the resort for a short weekend jaunt to Mexico on July 26-28 2013. We accompanied some friends who chose the resort as a potential location for their destination wedding. To be fair, we likely would have never considered this resort as we typically stay at adult only resorts. To start with, the resort is a long cab ride from the airport (1.5 hr if memory serves me correctly) The check-in process was anticlimactic...We have visited Cancun several times in the past year, and this was by far the worst (not that this is particularly important, but it is fun) There was no one to show us to our room, so we schlepped all of our luggage up to the room. The room was average; clean with no real complaints. The stocked mini bar consists of 4 beers, juice, water, soda. While on the subject of beer, the resort offers only 2 beers which I believe were Corona and Negra Modelo (I could be wrong) on tap. We had to wait an inordinate amout of time for a beer at the adult pool. There was one poor bartender, who appered over-worked and with no sense of urgency. I did not see any poolside wait staff. There is no free wi-fi at the resort. I have no complaints about the food; I would give it an average rating as well. The one cool aspect of this resort is that the beach is situated in a little cove, so it is possible to venture out with some chips or peanuts and see a ton of fish, which was so much fun. However, if you are expecting an amazing snorkeling location, you would likely be disappointed.
