This was our first visit to Mexico. We were very nervous about going because family and friends kept saying Mexico is very unsettled right now.
Well let me begin by saying that we couldn't of felt more safe in this resort. Yes there are areas in Mexico that are extremely dangerous, but this was not one of them. We felt safe in the morning as well as night.
This resort is soooo well taken care of. The employees are super friendly, and hardworking! It's absolutely beautiful.
I read reviews all the time, and a lot of people posted negative comments on the food. My husband and I are not picky eaters,but our younger daughter is. She never had a problem finding something good to eat at the buffets. We made reservations for 5 restaurants. All of them were great.
One of my favorite parts of any vacation is the ocean. Unfortunately this ocean (for me) was not that great. Too much coral and because the time of year we went, A LOT of seaweed!. But I got spoiled when I went to Cayman Island. This will be the ONLY reason I won't return.
The beach is beautiful though! And they do a great job cleaning it in the morning. There was always plenty of chairs on the beach as well as the ocean.
Make sure you bring plenty of sun tan lotion. It will cost you about $30 (american dollars!) for a bottle.
