This was my first time visiting mexico and I went with my best friend (her second time at this resort). We are in our late twenties. Upon arrival we were greeted with fresh juice. Check in was easy and fast however we arrived about two hours before our rooms were ready. You leave your luggage up front and we packed swimsuits in our carry ons so this was not an issue at all.
Service: everyone was extremely friendly and courteous. I'm not fluent in Spanish but I can hold a conversation and can understand spanish and was fine. The bartenders were always generous with liquor. Make friends with the staff working the activities and they can get you in the clubs for free (I was looking at playacrawl and decided against it..we ended up going to all of the same places for Free.. Sitting in the same VIP sections and received one free drink at each location). Ps..staff come from all parts of the globe and they all speak a variety of languages.
The food was similar to food you would get on a cruise. Since we stayed 5 days 4 nights we made 1 reservation at a restaurant on site and it was delicious and filling. The snack bar by the pool opened at 11 and went all night.
The rooms were extremely clean. The only random thing I would complain about was that they don't have washcloths. Being that my friend stayed at the hotel previously she let me know ahead of time so I was prepared and brought my own.
WiFi only works in the lobby and you can usually only check Facebook and email. I tried to get on groupme and instagram and was denied access.
Take advantage of the non motorized water sports that are included -catamaran, kayaking, paddleboards, boogie/body boards, etc. We also rode bicycles to the city and it was so much fun.
My only complaint -the hallways echo so If a kid is being loud you will hear it.
Overall it was a great trip and I would recommend this hotel for anyone not looking to spend a heap of money in mexico but still looking for a great all inclusive experience.
