I personally loved this resort. I would be willing to go back 2 or 3 more times. The staff had to be some of the nicest people that I have ever met in my entire life. All staff speak both English & Spanish, and some even speak French, German or Italian! They do their very best to keep their guests satisfied which they did, and they have to love what they do. Another thing that was great about it is that the food & drinks there taste very good! And in addition to their buffet, they have authentic Mexican, American, Mediterreain, Carribean, Japanese restaurants including a very tasty Brasillan steakhouse that you can go to two of them throughout your stay. Their fantasia smoothies are very delicious, and they even have some swim-up bars. Oh, and did I mention that all of the food & drinks there are either free or prepaid for before you come? So if you ever feel hungry or just want a drink to quench your thrist, go ahead and get it. The room was all clean, the beds were very comfortable, and every day they would put towels on one of our beds and make them into a shape of a swan or an elephant. They have TV's with great shows on. The bathroom has lots of soap and shampoo in the shower, and there was plenty of room to put my contact lense case, toothbrush etc., Onto the sink. Now, onto the activities that they have there. The beach is very fun and large just with many activities such as dart tournaments, archery tournaments, volleyball games, or you can even create your own tournaments against a friend or another family member in ping-pong or foosball. This beach has a lot of hammocks if you're feeling lazy, or if you feel like you want some action or you are feeling daring, try jumping over some of the biggest waves in the world in the Carriabean Sea. It is very fun. Another thing is that they have a big large pool there right next to the beach that is a very convienent walk from some hotel buildings. They even have some swim up bars and an ice cream stand right by the pool. While I was there, they had some fun activities there at the pool like, throwing a football through a lifeguard hole circle type thing way up in the air and far back from you, and running on a mat that is over the pool. Another great benefit is that there are beautiful animals there while you walk around. Such animals include peacocks, kawatis, and many different kinds of birds. Those animals are very cute and friendly and will not try to attack you unless they sense a threat that you will try to attack them or you have a lot of food in your hands. Also, Spend a day at the historic Chichen Itza, a mayan temple about 2 hours away from the resort. They have a nice little town in the resort with many shops and restauarants, an Internet cafe, a bike tour offered somewhere around there, a gym, a convention centre for businesses, a free carousel, and a ring toss. a teen night club, and I think there is an adult's night club too! And even though we didn't use these two things, they do have a doctor on duty 24/7 that speaks English and they do have a kid's club. Drop off the kids at the kids club If you have small kids. It looked like that the kids in the kids club looked like they were very safe and had a whole lot of fun. So don't be too worried about the kids if you drop them off there. Then, after you are worn out from swimming or dancing or partying all day, go to a big giant theatre type of room and watch a concert or attend the awards ceremony from the tournaments that day. Or, try your luck at Mexican-style bingo! Then, have a great good night's sleep. I really hope that I get to go back here some day. More than 5 stars out of 5 in my opinion.
