In our opinion...stay was in January 2013
* Reception and bar staff were ok
* Waiters in the buffet restaurant very friendly
* Beach area is not very large but does the job and very clean, but watch the current
* Food in buffet restaurant where we ate every time except once, was of a good standard
* Drinks were good too. Corona on draft. Pay about an extra £1 for Jack Daniels, but Smirnoff and Bacardi included
* Room maid was great
* Fridge topped up daily with 2 cans of Corona and Corona Light, water, coke/diet coke, fanta and filter coffee
* The 24 hour bar is especially useful if you go on a day trip that starts early
* After 9 pm the shows start around pool area and the music can get very loud
* Also had a massage from the spa which was fantastic
* We booked with Thomas Cook and our trip cost £1200 each for 2 weeks – take off the cost of the flight about £500 and that would mean each day cost £50 for all inclusive, with sun - now you don’t get that in Blighty!
* Also had a night in old Cancun - beers 25 peso's about £1.30 and a wide selection
* Buses run all the time. We caught over 10 and longest we waited must have been 20 seconds! Cost about 40 pence
* If travelling with others you may want to think about paying the extra and booking seats even if you travel in Premium
* Did the Dolphin trip with Dolphin Discovery which was great. If you want the photographs afterwards hold back a bit and you should get a discount.
* Chichen Itza was good but fairly long day. About 7am – 6.30pm.
* Value for money - we have rated this 8/10 for what we paid
