The hotel was a little bit difficult to find initially, but we were happy when we arrived because of the beautiful private inlet in which it is located. The front desk agent was friendly but not able to speak English well so my lack of Spanish left me a bit confused as to how to take full advantage of the resort. We traveled as a family (6 adults) and requested rooms near each other, unfortunately we were not put in rooms anywhere near each other. (Floors 1, 6, and 18) We were fortunate enough to find a valet who was originally from Minnesota and he was kind enough to explain how things worked at the resort.
We were on the all-inclusive package- *There is one buffet restaurant and two "fine dining" restaurants. If you don't want to eat at the buffet for each dinner you need to reserve a table each morning (yes, stop at her desk and reserve daily) with the concierge in the lobby. They alternate Italian/Mexican nights for the fine dining. Honestly the food was ok at the buffet and traveling with six adults we probably enjoyed the multiple options at the buffet more than the fine dining- but I would suggest giving both a try. The buffet is only open certain times of day, so plan accordingly. The lines weren't too bad at the buffet. There is also a snack bar off the pool which is open most of the day.
The hotel has one large pool with a swim up bar. There is also a beautiful beach with nice beach chairs and a few covered tent areas. One of our favorite things about this hotel was the view. The ocean views are amazing and the beach is very private. (Some of the other more "value" oriented hotels are not on private beaches...think graffiti.)
There are activities each day, a large board near the pool lists the times. (beach volleyball, water aerobics, etc.) There is also a kiddie area at the back of the hotel- I believe there was mini-golf and a playground. The hotel also has tennis courts. There is also a free rental area for boogie boards, etc near the pool. You can reserve your outings in the lobby. There are adventure company reps in the lobby daily. There is also canoe and jet ski rentals on the beach. In the evenings there are shows- sometimes on the beach and sometimes on one of the upper patios. Nice, family fun.
If you choose to stay here, remember this is Mexico and this is a beach resort. The salt water is hard on the hotel, but you can tell the hotel is taken care of.
We sincerely enjoyed our trip and would stay here again.
