We went all inclusive, and really enjoyed all the services available through this option. Shuttles, restaurants, activities etc. Its a fair distance from the city, 40-50$ taxi ride. Hotel shuttles (free) work well if you don't mind spending an hour or two in the city. This place is all about the money, from tips to activities, its not the place to go if you A) want to party all night (place is quiet at 10pm) or B) want to be near the action, or c) travel on a budget. You do have to sign for meals and drinks all the time, if you get friendly with a bartender he'll leave your tab open for the afternoon. You can't help but feel pressured to Tip. They really do go above and beyond to remember what your name is and what you drink. We are about 30yrs old, and traveled for the week of Christmas to New years. Lots of families there and it seemed great for them. Mexico can be hectic, so this truly is away from all the madness of vendors and traffic. Super Nice & New, well-maintained property. Hard-working staff and only improving from what I read. I'd book again without hesitation.
PS:Restaurants really were great. good variety and quality of food.
