I'm puzzled by the amazing reviews of this hotel. It's nice enough, but is definitely not flawless or better than other hotels I've stayed in (which somehow get ratings of only 3 or 4 on tripadvisor). Good news first: the hotel is clean, staff is friendly, the food is decent, the gym was great, and the on-site supermarket is very convenient. There are some lovely, delicious restaurants nearby, and the concierge was very helpful with suggestions and reservations.
Here's what I didn't love --- the pool area is too small and poorly designed. While there are technically three separate pools, they're right on top of each other and in the same area. This meant that, even if I was at the "quiet" pool, I could still hear the loud people and music coming from the swim-up bar. The hotel room decor was dated and some of the moldings/materials seemed a little cheap. Finally, the hotel only has one restaurant option for dinner, and it's a pseudo-formal steakhouse. I don't know why anyone would want that kind of dining experience while in Mexico, but I guess I'm alone since every other reviewer thought this hotel was perfect. I didn't. I had a perfectly nice time, but it just isn't deserving of a 5-point rating.
