I rented two villas (equivalent to the 2 bedroom full lock-off villa) for my family of 6. Me, Wife, 3 kids (9,12,13) and my Mom.
The studio villa was occupied by my mother and oldest daughter. The rest of the family occupied the 1bedroom + full kitchen villa.
It was clean and spacious. The decoration is done with taste and sobriety. We were provided with a 300 pesos taxi ride to the Superama to fill the fridge up (the dedicated taxi driver waits 1h in the parking lot). I was able to feed the family of 6 for a week at 170 USD using one of the BBQ in the courtyard and the full kitchen in the villa. We went two nights and two lunches at restaurants: Fish Fritanga (cheap but excellent), Johnny Rocket (bad! avoid), Fred's House (expensive, delicious, outstanding service) and Captain Hook (restaurant on a pirate ship!)
The prices at the bar, the grill and the market inside the resort are reasonable also. So it did not cost a fortune getting fed. I ended up paying 200$ less than expected on food and alcohol.
All and all, a great vacation. The wife, mother, father (who surprised everyone by showing up), and kids loved it.
We did not visit much of Cancun. The family went to Tulum and Xel-Ha in one day, and I went snorkeling solo at the mornig glory tour the day after.
The rest of the time, we enjoyed the magnificent pool, the ping pong and pool tables, the mini-putt, the volley-ball games, the beach soccer games and the waves.
I recommend trying at least once. We loved our 2011 hawaii vacation a bit more though.
