This was my 3rd time to this resort and have enjoyed each visit. Yes the place is full over the weekend with locals, but we love watching the kids play and having fun. It seemed too quiet Mon - Thursday. I must mention that I don;t think the food was as good this time, had one lunch that the meat was so over cooked it has not edible. But that was only one meal, there is usually always a great selection. The pools were clean except the swimup bar pool, alot of dirt and bugs in this pool. The only problem we encountered, which they can't control was the amount of bee's around the bars. Second time there at this time of the year, no bees last time, on scary to us because my friend is highly allergic. Went to Mr Lionso's 3 times this time, we love that restaurant. All in all our trip was very enjoyable. Stayed on the 14th floor and the view was amazing. No trouble with the elevators this time. Will definitely go back again, I agree with previous posting, if you don;t want to holiday with Mexican's go elsewhere.
