We didn't have too many expectations coming here as we got a really good deal. I have to say nevertheless that this place was excellent. Food was definitely one of the highlights boasting a bountiful supply of areas to dine in. We experienced top shelf drinks during all of our stay and extremely friendly service (call out to Gerardo, Orlando, Martin, and Webster). Amongst the various In-house activities, the tequila tasting won our heart thanks to Carlos, the sommelier.
There are two main pool areas, but the one near the bar tends to get too crowded and attracts the well known "spring break" type of crowd that everyone talks about in Cancun (must admit we needed up moving to the other pool).
Their Tempo restaurant was incredible, great place to celebrate a special occasion.
