Swore I'd never vacation in Mexico again after an awful experience in Cancun, but my brother was getting married so I went. What a wonderful surprise! Excellent staff, food, location, room, beach, amenities - everything! I went with somewhat of a jaded opinion based on my previous Cancun experience and had a 180 degree change of mind. I would definetly go back with entire family in tow, children included, it's a very family friendly place. My only advice would be to go with the knowledge that apparently airconditioning systems in Mexico are water chilled systems and do not cool down like those in the states. However, that being said my room was always comfortable at night and cool enough to sleep well. We did ask the staff to add a mattress topper to the bed to make it softer, which they did readily, and earplugs at night helped to drown out the sound of the music from the disco outside. Sunrise walks on the wide clean beach were wonderul and the sunsets were awesome as well. I agree with other reviewers that the current is very strong and to be careful. The waves are big and they come in fast and go back out just as fast. Para-sailing is available right on the beach, which was beautiful to watch - I, however was not brave enough to give it a try. My brother and his new bride were treated to a room full of rose petals and their bed adorned with swans made out of the towels surrounded by roses and flowers with their names written in flower petals. Awesome! And the food! Impossible not to gain weight! This is a great place to stay at a very reasonable price. Tip well, they earn it and deserve it.
