Took my 18 year old son on this trip to send him off to the military on a good note. Some friends went with us, which made it that much better. We stayed in the Grand Mayan area of the resort. The two bedroom suite was awesome. It was perfect for us. The boys stayed in the living room on two sofa beds and each of the couples had a bedroom. This is not an all inclusive resort. First time for us traveling to Cancun without all inclusive. It actually worked out great. All the charges go to the room and are itemized on your room receipt, which is available at any time at the front desk. The pools are amazing the staff is very nice, but be careful with the waiters and the charges. Check your receipts every time. We had a bit of a problem at the end after we checked out. It all worked out, but I did make the waiter feel bad for his attempt at a shady deal.
Our taxi driver "Cartas" owns his own cab and will take care of you and have a great deal if there is a group looking to visit surrounding areas. We went to Tulum, Chichenitza, and a Cenote after. We paid out own entry fees, but without having to be on a tour schedule was a great benefit. Cartas waited for us and gave us tips on how long to stay to make sure to maximize the tour. You can get a tour guide at the ruins if you want and at your expense. We didn't and just enjoyed seeing them and taking pictures. If your are going there soon call him up at 984 807 2456 cell. You can also send him an e-mail at email@example.com
Overall the resort was great. It was a bit in the slower side during the end of October, but the weather was great at 85 degrees daily.
