my boyfriend and i spent a week at CPC and we'd had a fine time. i had mixed feelings based on some of the reivews on tripadvisor, but we really had a good time. there are in deed a lot of children at CPC, and it is geared towards them, but we are in our mid to upper 20's and really didn't notice the kids too much. they must keep them pretty occupied during the day, and there is also an adult pool away from all the children - which we'd only taken advantage of twice. the only time we'd noticed the large amount of kids was when it rained - everyone was confined into a smaller area (and it was superbowl sunday so everyone was closer together watching).
the beach area here is just great and you can basically walk for miles and miles. it's just beautiful. also a lot of beach chairs for use.
i have no idea what some of these reviewers are saying / complaining about as far as the food goes at the specialty restaurants. i'm a picky eater and i had no problem finding things to eat, and they were good! and there is no was it was the same food that was on the buffet but presented differently... i'm not sure if they'd changed how they do meals at CPC, but we'd even commented during dinners that we had no idea what the complaints were about... we really enjoyed them. also, we had absolutely no problem in making dinner reservations, as a matter of fact we'd ate at a specialty restaurant every night of our stay. i'm not sure if it was due to the fact that we were in the club rooms, but we were never denied a restaurant or time, nor did we have any difficulty getting through on the phone to make the reservation - and we were told that they were at maximum capacity. if in the club rooms you can also make the reservation in person at the concierge desk in the adult bar on the 8th floor. we'd ate breakfast at the 8th floor adult only lounge/bar most mornings. the view from here is awesome. the staff here were extreemly friendly and helpful.
speaking of the club rooms, we were in the newer/upgraded building. we paid for the upgrade (through expedia i think it was like $100 more during booking) for the week. it may seem like a waste, but again, from hearing people disliking their room or not being able to make reservations, etc., we thought the upgrade seemed like a great investment. before arriving i'd emailed CPC requesting a room in the updated building and one higher up (as to avoid the noise others had commented about). we were on the 7th floor near the adult bar (8th floor) and it really was wonderful. we didn't hear any noise from... anything! we had a great view and the interior of the room was great as well. the furniature is all new/updated down to the light fixtures. everything looked new and crisp. there was plenty of space, even with the jaccuzi, for the bistro set and our other things. the bathroom was quite spacious as well, with a very large walk in shower, dual sinks, and toilet in a seperate room. there is also a safe that fit all of our valuable belongings, including an ipad. there was a mini fridge, stocked daily with water beer and soda - if you want more of one thing, or none of another item, simply tell them or write a note and leave it in the fridge. they staff are very helpful and understanding. we were expecting hard beds but there was an egg crate foam on our bed so it was very comfy. besides the welcome bottle of champagne, they had a small cake for our birthdays upon arrival in our room - we thought that was very thoughtful.
again, i can't say enough about the staff here. from the bartenders to the staff at the desk to the bell boy to the cleaning personnel. these guys really do work their butts off and try to make the best of your vacation. can't say enough about them. also ericka was extreemly helpful to us - we'd emailed multiple times regarding different questions prior to our arrival and she was over the top helpful. helped us find a place to watch the superbowl, our room request, and how we could travel to playa del carmen. everyone was so great!
this place is definitly geared towards families and children, but as i said, we are 20 somethings and really had a fun vacation.
