We stayed for one week in June 2012. It was a graduation present for our daughter. We stayed in Building 2, 8th floor and had an outstanding view and really nice room which included a washer and dryer. We used the gymnasium in the mornings, and participated in a number of activities including yoga, tai chi, paddle boarding, sea kayaks, zumba dance, and swimnastics.
We ate at each of the restaurants and the food and service was outstanding. The pools were very nice, and the poolside service was good also. The first few days, we were asked by the concierge to see the time share presentation but we politely declined. Everyone was very friendly, and we had only two minor issues.
First the concierge gave a schedule for the ferry (which loads right next door) to Isla Mujeres. We learned from another guest that it did not run at 915 am. We also observed the comings and goings of the ferry from the pool deck and the next available ferry was at 11 am. This did not create a problem for us, but it did not give as much time on the island as we would have liked.
Also, we took the shuttle to Mercado 28 (which was supposed to be a flea market). Instead the van driver dropped us off at a store. We soon learned that the actual flea market was 3 to 4 blocks further away. It was pretty misleading.
We had a wonderful vacation, and had outstanding service at each of the restaurants. As others have said, it is quite a ways out of town, but it really had all we wanted in terms of food and entertainment. A nice place to vacation with a family.
