Prior to our trip, we had a discussion with the boys about alcohol, and decided that they would all receive NON-drinking wrist bands (even though by local law... More

Just a short note to share Mexico vacation highlights...high points - excellent service in the a la carte restaurants (particularly the Arlequin) and the bars (particularly the Coba beach bar Los Cocos and Jose Vazquez). We had a great time.

Grounds: The grounds are kept very clean and not a piece of litter in sight. Everything is absolutely beautiful. You don't have to set up anything to take a picture - everything is just an absolute eye candy. Grounds staff/gardeners etc. work extremely hard to make sure the hotel remains in a next to perfect state. Pools: Again, very clean.... More
