2nd time there. Met us at the front door with champagne and a wet scented hand towel. Arranged our activities quickly, and pick-up for airport at end of trip arranged right away. Checked us in quickly. Junior suite is way to go...small bungalow in the shade of coconut trees. Looked remodeled, solid furniture, patio view green with ocean in background. Gorgeous well kept grounds with iguanas wandering around. Mexican people as always extremely good natured and pleasant. Tip them well and they go out of their way further...one reason why I like Mexico vacations. Restaurants very good, room service acceptable. Pools, grounds, room service timing, room quality, all excellent.
You can rent a "hidden beach" (nude beach) room or standard. None of this resort is for children. Usually destination weddings there, fun people. Mostly young (30's-40's) but enough our age (50's & older) to be comfortable.
Went to Indiana Joes, which is worth it to zip line and swim in caves. Snorkeled. This is not on site but they transport you. Problem is one van was bad (picked us up with check-engine light on and barely made it back) and we had this happen to us on our first visit...the main problem with this visit. Looks like they are getting new vans but shouldn't take you out if van is limping. Activities such as para-sailing, fishing etc are at a different hotel, not far but just a little inconvenient. You can rent small boats/canoes at seaside. Also, it is about 75 minutes from airport...not as bad as all that since they have cervesa in the transport van, can arrive a little drunk already.
Beach is pretty. Sand is a little gritty for bare feet, shallow, and some rocks. Stays shallow for quite a distance.
The quaint beauty of this resort is hard to beat. There are many beach hotels but most seem "generic" hotels...this is unique and meant for romantic trips. Grounds are impeccable and shaded completely by coconut trees.
