Its hard to find a balance between tasteful modern ambience/decor (as displayed by the resort's minimalist cordoba/spanish style architecture and colour palate); good quality food and variety (my personal opinion is the quality of a la carte would be better than buffets, although the breakfast buffet is exemplary); family friendly environment without making it overwhelmingly childish (I hardly noticed that there's kiddie splash pool in the resort and there are ramps everywhere for strollers); adult oriented entertainment (wonderful outdoor lounge/sushi bar/swim up pool bar/wine/cigar/coffee tastings); and a focus on relaxation (spectacular spa!). The whole resort also felt very intimate without being intrusive.
The hotels consistently good ratings speaks for itself. Complaints about the food are unfounded (especially if its about soggy fries and dry burgers; I bet that reviewer didn't try Lupita's crab stuffed pablano peppers). However the desserts could do with a bit of an improvement. And if you knowingly go to a family resort and complain about kids then your judgement should be poor by default, and as a result should be disregarded.
Additional thanks to Alex at the beach for constantly bringing drinks and food. Sarasai (sp??) was also wonderful at providing over and above service.
