The JW Marriott is in the process of replacing all their beds, with comfy ones! They are probably all in now! It's a great resort too!

Mexicans love concrete beds!!! Is good for your back... They are orthopedic... =)

Just a joke... The thing is that most of the resorts try to renew mattresses often in order to avoid complaints about bad beds... I have no idea if all of they buy expensive or "discount" mattresses.

Welcome to Cancun.

This could happen all over the world.

Air mattresses are indeed bulky and a bother.

Have you considered getting a foam mattress pad, cutting it to the size of your sleeping area (it is superfluous to have the whole thing) and then putting it into one of those vacuum packed plastic bags? My wife does this as she very much dislikes a hard bed. Takes up very little room in the suitcase (consider doing the vacuum shrink thing for your clothes, too - it is amazing how much you can pack into a small suitcase if you have the right mindset).

If you don't want to bring one with you, stop by Walmart and see if they have one when you first come to town.
