My husband and I traveled here from May 4 to May 11 for our honeymoon and had a great experience minus the lunch options (only buffet and same thing every day - boring and wasn't great quality).
I definitely recommend staying at the adult's only if you aren't bringing your children because you have access to ALL the facilities but you can always go back to the ever-so-chill adult's only side.
Beach was beautiful. Restaurants were good but not amazing. Room was comfortable and all you needed. Room service took forever and wasn't great (and also not included in the all-inclusive package). Drinks were as strong as you wanted them.
English is NOT spoken by a lot of the staff so brush up on your Spanish.
Tip: English is NOT spoken by a lot of the staff so brush up on your Spanish. Make all restaurant reservations/excursions/shuttle to the airport the day you arrive or the following morning as things book up very quickly. Men - no shorts or sandals at ANY of the nice restaurants. Wear sunscreen even on a cloudy day and expect rain showers or thunderstorms in the mid-late afternoon so get out there early.
Overall, great deal for the money!
