I came here on business. I know, not your normal place for work but its what they chose so I went with it.
-The rooms: BEAUTIFUL views! I had an ocean view and it was amazing. You could see the pool and the ocean perfectly. The curtains did a nice job blacking out the sunlight as well.
The temperature was a bit cold but you had control so it was fine. I had a couch and dining table in my room that were nice to have. The mini bar was nice, always stocked with drinks and a small snack (there was other stuff as well for purchase).
-All inclusive: awesome. The service was great for an all inclusive. There are drinks and snacks that can be ordered poolside, all of the restaurants and bars and even room service (there is a $5 charge on each time you order).
You can even tip on the bill and they just have you pay at the end of your stay (although they say tipping is not necessary).
-Spa: I had a deep tissue massage. Alejandra was awesome, I definitely recommend her. Wasn't too expensive and the tip is included. You also get to use the jacuzzi, steam room and sauna while you wait or after your massage. Its definitely worth it.
-Fitness center: Open 24hrs!! Great when you're working and have weird hours off. Has tons of cardio equiment, free weights, weight machines, yoga mats, step boards.
-Salt Restaurant: DELICIOUS! Best paella I've had in years. It also had the best service of all of the restaurants.
-Brunch: It is a buffet in the Salt restaurant. It has every food you could imagine. Omelette bar, smoothie bar, french toast, pancakes, chilaquiles, oatmeal, etc. The list is endless!
-Beachhouse Restaurant: Nothing to rave about. For Mexico, their Mexican food was pretty terrible. I'm white from Chicago and can make much better food. It was edible just not thrilled about it.
-Room Service: Good food but for the $5 charge, the quality just wasn't up to par.
-Pool/Beach: I loved the pool and the beach was gorgeous but there just aren't enough chairs for everyone. Everything was taken by 10am and if you wanted a spot, you had to pay for bottle service. I ended up waiting until the afternoon to lay out when some people had left.
-Internet: The wifi was just awful. They had four access points and you never knew which one to connect to! The first day I had no connectivity in my room, which is so frustrating, You were better off going to the computers they had for public use. But good luck trying to log in. None of the staff I asked knew the password and I had to ask a couple of guests before I could get in successfully.
-Staff: not terribly friendly. Yes, they are polite but they all seemed irritated when you asked for help or had to use a service. Of course, there were exceptions (especially at the restaurants) but overall I felt like I was burdening them when I approached someone.
-Restaurants: You cannot go to a restaurant at night without a reservation. I think they should reserve some space for walkins. As I was working the whole time, I did not know when I would make it back from the office so I did not want to make reservations. I ended up eating room service more than I would have liked to because they didn't have any open seats at any of the restaurants. I can't imagine I was the only person who felt this way.
-Confusion: I was confused for most of the time spent at ME. The hotel is just not intuitive. They have someone explaining the all inclusive but they just don't do a great job. I had a hard time finding how to get out to the pool, the password on the public computers, on which of the four wifi access points to connect to, on where the restaurants were, on how to work the TV/Cable/DVD player, how to turn on the shower, etc. Everything just seemed to be opposite of common sense.
Overall I liked spending time in Cancun so that took over my experience. As far as the resort, I think there are so many other options with comparable prices that you're better off trying one of the resorts that had everyone raving about the food/staff/beach. That's really all you need when at a beautiful place like Cancun!
