We had bought a package to stay here for a birthday weekend with family and friends (in total 4 double rooms) We had additionally booked tickets for a pirate ship cruise on Saturday night (which happened to be convenient because the port where we had to go to is like 2 blocks away from this hotel). Our transportation got us to Cancun at 6:00 am in the morning and check-in time is not until the afternoon, so we decided to kill time by walking around Cancun and buying some stuff...we reached the hotel around 1:00 pm. and were told that we had to wait a 'little while' because they were still cleaning 2 rooms. The little while waiting turned out to be literally around 3 hours and half. Everytime we asked, they said that either the rooms were still being cleaned or even that the people that were in the room had not checked out yet! By then, other guests had arrived and the lobby was full of mad guests that had to wait for hours along with us just to check-in. We were already tired from the all night travel and all we wanted was a shower and bed to be able to go out later that night, so much so that 1 of my friends even fell asleep and woke up back on 1 of the lobby seats. We called the rest of the group that were to reach the next day andgave them our room numbers so they call us when they got there. The next day, (not surprisingly) the rest of the group was downstairs from around 1:30 pm and they called form reception to our rooms to let us know they were there. They had them and other people waiting too with the same excuse, but they were a bit 'luckier' because to calm down the angry group, they gave them their all inclusive bracelets and told them they can start enjoying the resort and that they would go for them when the rooms were ready. (The day before, they didnt even give us our bracelets until the time we checked in).
Anyway, we did not let all that mess up our trip, we truly had a blast and for the rets of the trip, we made sure we had some fun enjoying the great food & drinks, the nice pool, played volleyball and soccer sports with other guests etc etc. I fell in love with a dirnk they prepare called the 'mangorita'. You should definately try it!
If you are a fan of margaritas, try the mangorita drink!
