We just returned from a really NICE vacation and stay at the FAVC in Cancun. It was booked through our Hilton Grand Vacations timeshare. We stayed in a really nice one bedroom but had to be moved from our first room - DO NOT STAY in rooms 106, 206, or 306. They're RIGHT next to the pipe room and you will hear banging and clanging all day and all night!
The positives: family-style atmosphere, quiet, quaint, beautiful rooms, excellent location in the hotel zone, friendly and extremely helpful staff, beautiful pool, nice palapas on the beach, gym and spa are great, fantastic kids club, very clean, and be sure to take a nice walk along the beach from the hotel. Additionally, there was a waitress taking drink orders on the beach and at the pool (contrary to other reviewers feedback). However, the Bikini Bar is a literal stones throw from the beach and pool (in fact, part of the bar is IN the pool) so if you're not a lazy bones you can take a short walk and place the order yourself!
The "areas in need of improvement": pipes are not insulated so you will hear every flush, shower, faucet above you/next to you; mediocre beach (not much sand and areas to swim but really nice beaches are a short walk); $22 per hour charge for tennis at their sister resort (FA Coral Beach) which is 15 minutes away; $3 per day charge for maid service; expensive restaurant on site (then again, all hotel restaurants are expensive in the hotel zone); HARD SELL at the hotel to buy into its time share (in the a.m. you'll see tours going on all of the time) - Norma, a concierge, will give you an attitude if you turn her down.
Overall, a good place to stay although I don't think I'd go back to Cancun again.
