This resort is absolutely breathtaking! The rooms all have private balconies with views of the ocean which make it pretty hard to even want to leave the room. It's a very quiet resort which makes it the perfect getaway from reality. The staff is all VERY attentive and are what seems to be more than happy to work there. They have a 4 restaurants to choose from and one bar. We ate of 3 of the restaurants but missed out on the fine dining one. We were there earlier in the week and I believe the restaurant is only open Thurs, Fri, and Sat. There restaurant that serves the fresh catch of the day is Really good though.
There were two downfalls to the the place which was 1-mosquitos. They have complimentary bottles around the hotel, so that indicates just how bad it can get.
2-For me personally, I would of enjoyed a little more music or atmosphere in the evening. After a full day of doing nothing I think some hotel activities as an option would of been nice. They do offer cooking classes and tequila tastings too but it's still pretty low key.
Outside of the resort the town itself was nothing special. I feel like if you've been to one part of Mexico then you've seen it all as far as the style and shopping element. The town was definitely cleaner than most parts of Mexico that I have visited.
