My husband and I would've absolutely hated this place BEFORE we had kids. Now that we're traveling w/ 5 and and 2 year old, we liked it so much that we actually bought a timeshare. This time around, we got this incredible deal through Groupon, around $200 per night for 4 people, ALL INCLUSIVE. It's a bit overwhelming if it's your first time, once you get used to the lay out, it's easy to get around. In fact, riding the trolley around the property was one of the high lights for my kids. We stayed for a whole week and ate pretty much every single meal on the resort. There're plenty of options to choose from. We even had fresh oysters one night at the restaurant at Del Arco. My kids never got tired of fresh pizza (which they had for lunch everyday.) Drinks are sometimes hit and miss, but the beer is always cold and pina coladas are always marvelous.
We ventured out to the town one day. You can get much better deal on local trips if you just deal w/ those guys in town in person. You just have to stay your ground and be ready to walk away if you don't get the deal you want. There's always the next guy. Our group (I think 12 including the kids) got a boat tour to all the major beaches and spots and a ride back to our hotel for $50. We paid more than that getting into town on a van taxi. The guys went deep sea fishing for half the price of what you can get from the hotel. After they came back w/ a huge yellowtail and some other fish, we just tipped the chef at the hotel and he grilled it for us w/ all the fixings. I've never had fish that had no fish smell at all. It was amazing.
My least favorite place to eat is the buffet. Our favorite was California grill where they serve amazing Italian dishes.
