Would not stay there again, would not recommend to a friend. Let me explain...
We stayed at the ME for 4 days. What does a person look for in an all inclusive? If you're me, you hope for great food, great drinks, quick service of both food and drink (so you can get back to the pool/beach), great availability of food and drink (options) and lots of spaces around the pool an on the beach to relax at. ME ranked poor in all these areas, plus had the added nuisance of having to sign the receipt for everything. (We read about this in reviews before going and thought "how bad could it be?". It's a major nuisance and slows down service big time. Trust me.)
During our 4 day stay, we were only wowed by the lunch at the Beachouse. All other food was mediocre and we sampled each option.
Drinks - slow to get, limited selection , often you would get something entirely other than what you ordered and then be given a 'beggars can't be choosers' shrug by the bartender.
Beach/pool seating - have never seen an all inclusive resort with so few beach/poolside deck chairs. Have also never seen an all inclusive with so many cabanas/couches/beds etc you must pay to reserve or buy bottle service to sit at. (Want to sit in the infinity pool area? Bottle service only if you want a place for your towel. Cheapest bottle option? $1350 pesos)
Other miscellaneous head shakers: Two of our 4 nights the Rose bar (the only bar open after dinner is over) was open to the public as well. It was full to max capacity, couldn't get a drink, so we wandered the entire hotel to find another option. nothing else was open.
The service - prepare to be ignored by rude bartenders. We had one really great, friendly waiter and two great friendly waitresses our whole stay. Of all the resorts I have stayed at have had better service and English speaking as well. We had a couple of situations where our traveller's Spanish couldn't get us by.
They ran out of towels at the pool 2 of our 4 days.
There is no entertainment other than a DJ playing house music from noon - 4am (at top volume). No poolside games, no night time show, no group busses into the Cancun nightlife or pub tours, etc.
The rooms don't have patios or balconies, and inside the room it is so humid your bathing suit will take 2 days to dry. (We walked up and down the beach - every other hotel has patios on the oceanview side.)
Like I said, death by 1000 papercuts. All the little things on vacation add up, and if you really want to be wowed and get the most out of your time, stay somewhere else. I wanted to have a great time, and really did have a great vacation in spite of the resort. Seems like they're going for a very young and sexy vibe with all the decor and bottle service and whatnot. I'm under 30 though and it's not my idea of a good time.
Redeeming factors? The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. The beach in Cancun is lovely but that's more thanks to mother nature than the resort!
