The good: excellent location, AC worked great, nice balconies, refrigerator, our maid was great, TVs worked well with CNN,Fox News,2 or 3 ESPNs, 4 or 5 movie channels, the front desk changed my dollars to pesos all week at 12.55 pesos/$. This was the best rate I found by FAR. Transportation choices were great-bus was 6.5 pesos (50cts), bus with AC was 10 pesos (80cts), pulmonias (large open "golf cart" taxi) were 50 pesos ($4) to most places, a bit more at night and for longer trips.
The bad: My 4th floor room was at the perfect height for the palm trees to block most of my view, including sunsets. The suites have bedrooms with 2 double beds, none with 1 King as far as I could find. I am 5'7" and my girlfriend 5'8" and we were cramped in a non-romantic way. The 2 beds took up most of any floor space. Speaking of non-romantic, the place was packed with Mexican families (and screaming kids), including both pools and the beach. Wrong time of the year to go for romance. Or maybe wrong hotel choice?
The ugly: The tour desk is a thinly veiled timeshare racket. Don't bite! They were so nice trying to get us to go for our free welcome breakfast! Never once mentioned the sales presentation. Fortunately I knew better. Peddlers on the beach directly in front of the hotel's beach entrance. At least they left me alone. The beach was filthy. Pool areas start clean, but by the time everyone eats (bags of chips inside the pool? Really?) the pool areas were rough as well. Last, EVERY afternoon a mariachi/banda band was on the beach. Excruciatingly loud!
