The resort was extremely nice on the beach & you can use the 3 different resorts and almost all the pools on the property. There was a little train and golf carts that could take you around, but once you learn the routes, the walk was not bad to cross the resort. The people on the resort were extremely nice, however it does seem like you get a lot of people trying to sell you things on the resort and on the beach.
We got the loft suite; my husband hated it, I liked it. The problem he had was the bathroom was on the lower level, so after several all inclusive drinks, stumbling down the stairs in the middle of the night was not ideal. The rooms were nice and spacious with a roomy balcony. The housekeepers came in everyday to clean and place nice flower around the tub and sink. There is a mini-bar in the room with beer, soda,and water which was always nice.
Our biggest complaint is the food. The buffets were not to our liking and the restaurants at night were a bit better, but you had to wait a long time. Our group had 8 people and we often waited 1.5 to 2 hours. The 24 hour Sportsbar was the best, have them make you the food and you will want the quesadilla or fajita over any buffet. Otherwise, take some snacks if you have a sensitive stomach.
One tip is take US dollars. They don't want the peso and all the prices on resort is dollars.
