Mid 30's, Caucasian, Texas, Married Couple.
My wife and I stayed at the resort in July 2012 for our 10 yr anniversary. It was our first trip to an all-inclusive, and our first trip to Mexico. We had no expectations and nothing to judge the resort by, so I did not write a review at that time. Now we have been all over the Caribbean, and back to Mexico at another resort, so I feel I have earned some credit to respond now.
This is the best place you can stay in Mexico, and for that matter better than any place in Jamaica or Costa Rica. It is just simply perfect.
We stayed in the Excellence club that is on the lower level and has a small pool directly in front of the main pool. Here is a disclaimer. I like to drink and have a good time on these trips. I am not the sit on the couch and read a book type, so understand the reason this area is so great, is you are always in the action. Water volleyball is directly out your sliding glass door at 10:00 a.m., so pop a beer and get the party started in the pool.
The scuba diving was great, the shows were good, the full bar in your room is unmatched, and always take in a spa day on the last day, if you are going to drink heavy, as it is cleansing and refreshing.
Others have talked about the food, and room service, so I will just say they are great for an all-inclusive, but don't expect 5 star quality. It is just not possible for a resort to do that.
We are going back in October of this year, so I should have another update then.
