This was our first trip to Cancun and we had a wonderful time. We've traveled to many other All Inclusive Resorts in Mexico, Jamaica and Panama, but this was by far our favorite.
Room: We stayed in a club room and it was lovely. Everything worked and was very clean. We even got some lovely towel animals. Never lacked for towels, water or beer in the room. The jacuzzi tub was fantastic - used it just about every day. We tipped $1/day.
Pool: Very nice, but a little small and can get quite crowded later in the afternoon.
Food, Restaurants and Bars: We ate at all the restaurants, buffet and snack bar. Food was very good at all, but Pier 12 was our favorite - really great seafood and pasta. Good selection of quality liquor at all the bars. Not watered down. House wine was ok, but the sparkling wine was really nice. Dancing at the 60s Bar is a lot of fun. DJ will play requests as soon as you ask.
Staff: Everyone, including maids, servers, cooks, bar tenders, front desk and entertainment staff were exceptional. They all should get a raise.
We also walked down the beach to the Great Parnassus every couple of days. It's about 40 minutes south down the beach. The pools are better for swimming and they also have an adult only pool/bar on the second floor which is very nice. We usually ate lunch there. Kind of like a food court but had lots of choices. Same great service.
Overall, we really loved this place and plan on coming back.
