We spent the first week of July at this hotel. I live in Guadalajara, Mexico which is a large and fast pace city with heavy traffic so I was really looking to get some peace and quiet (hard to do with 2 young kids!). This hotel is wonderful for someone that wants to get away; the pools are great for the kids. There is also an adult pool with bar and many other activities for adults that I was unfortunately unable to enjoy :)
One word of caution on the adult pool, there are 2 shallow navy blue circles that would appear to be a way to get in to the pool...but they really aren't. It is more like a spot for folks to gather around and have their drinks. Since I was unaware and quickly tried to get in the pool and I slipped, fortunately no major issues...but just wanted to highlight this as accidents during a vacation can be a pain.
They also have a kids club for kids over 4 years old. During my stay everything was very relaxed, never felt crowded.
The hotel is located on a lagoon, so if you are looking for the beach you can take a super quick and inexpensive ride in boat to Barra de Navidad. I particularly enjoyed the lagoon because of my young children, they were able to play in the lagoon and make their sand castles without me having to watch them every 5 seconds to make sure a wave didn't crash on them.
This hotel is not all inclusive, but I found the prices to be fare...they are pretty much what you would pay for at a restaurant in a mall in Guadalajara. The food is tasty; I particularly enjoyed the Sushi bar at the lobby bar.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay and agreed that we will definitely be coming back and make it one of our frequent vacationing spots.
