I wasn't sure what to expect. I was in Mexico when I was 12 (I'm 30 now). I went in January, and I must say overall I don't have bad things to say. I chose this resort because of the price.
The beach - GORGEOUS, absolutely stunning.
The food - was ok (the pizza's at supper are super yummy) but from what other people were saying, it was on par with cuban resort food
The hotel room - was nice, updated. Our cleaning lady was very nice, but the service times were sporatic (the first night we got there, room wasn't cleaned until 8pm) but she always did a very good job at cleaning. The biggest complaint I had was that the bed is super hard, very very hard. Not very good sleeps for hubby and I. And they had nothing to offer us to help with the stiffness of the bed, which was a bit unfortunate.
The staff - I found they were all super nice. They were short staffed in the main buffet. But if you are patient they will come, and they are very nice and helpful.
We only did 2 excursions, the day trip into town and the swimming with the dolphins. Both well worth the money in my opinion.
If you are not a patient person, don't go to Cuba. They run on "cuban time", which can sometimes be a bit of a wait (one trip the bus was an hour late). But the people in Cuba are SO nice and SO easy to talk to. I love it!
