All in all Mexico in general is one of my favorite places to visit. The beach at this resort was great, lots of opportunities to boogie board. Food was pretty decent, and of course the booze was always a quick grab.
The resort itself had a mixed bag of people. It definitely felt a lot more like Mexico then the Carribbean side that. There was an amazing seafood joint just up the beach, 10 minute walk that has an excellent menu. Best Seafood I've ever had hands down! Not too pricey either for the amount of quality grub.
Nightclub on the resort which was better then the ones we went to off the resort. Beach volleyball, multiple bars, 3 or 4 restaurants that I can remember.
Stayed in the lofts which were nice, the couch/beds weren't overly comfortable but how much time do you want to spend in your bed on a vacation anyways.
