My fiance and I really loved that you could walk out the front door of the hotel and be surounded by the city. You really felt like you were in old Mexico, not just some resort city like Cancun. We also liked that it was a smaller hotel, not some giant complex.
The hotel is nice and very clean. Room service was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Food was just OK, but we didn't expect it to be amazing. Omelet station for breakfast was really good, and they were nice enough to serve us Mimosas each morning. Fajitas/shrimp were awesome, and oddly enough, the onion soup was really really good. Wish they had a few more options for beer, but the Sol they served was just fine. We are not a picky couple, and just enjoy being in the sun with a drink in our hands. I never understand these people that complain about stuff as much as they do. You probably paid $90 a night for a ROOM, FOOD, AND ALKY. AND LOTS OF IT. And you are going to complain that the food wasn't 5-star quality? Or that the ketchup tasted funny? It's Mexico people.. it's basically a 3rd world country. And you didn't pay $400 a night to stay at the Ritz. Try to relax and enjoy yourself. Things will not always be perfect. You may order a meal you hate... who cares, just order another one until you find something you like. It's ALL-INCLUSIVE.
