This resort/timeshare was nice and the staff extremely friendly. I would rate it 3.5 star place. Right on the beach which was nice, little rocky getting in and out of the water, but mostly small smooth rocks so not that big of a deal. The locals selling stuff constantly was annoying, but probably a common issue for most of the resorts/hotels that don't have an exclusive private beach. The buffet was good, always able to find something we liked. My 4 almost 5 year old boy loved the resort. We avoided the timeshare pitch so can not comment on it. We were there in late August, the other guests were mostly Mexican residents 60%, a few others from USA 10%, a fair amount of Canadians 20%, and a few other from different places 20%. We saw dolphins in the bay in the mornings that was neat. The free ocean kayak was neat to try but not as fun as I thought it would be. Being August it rained most every night but the days were nice and sunny, rain would start sometime after sun down, usually after 9:30pm. We were usually tired from the days activities by then and on our way to bed. The rain was usually over before 9am when the pool opened, it was open from 9am to 9pm I'm guessing for treatment and cleaning. They had several over 7 tennis courts, not a tennis player but they looked okay. The snack bar food was just so so, buffet was much better. The restaurant that required proper attire and reservations was average, not missing anything if you don't go there. We took taxis everywhere pretty cheap $7 to most places. Not knowing better paid $18 from airport to hotel, but better than the $18 per person transfer I thought about buying online prior to starting trip. At airport avoid the timeshare people that you initially encounter, unless you like doing the timeshare thing. Almost all the hotel staff spoken well enough English, maid service was top notch. The pool was large and my son loved going back and forth between the toddler part and the deeper part. The sunsets every night were quite nice, ocean was calm in mornings as day went on waves got a little bigger but not much, though our last day a storm was brewing somewhere in the Pacific and the waves got huge, no one was swimming in the ocean that day, but the sound and the crashing waves were awesome to sit and hear and watch.
