We travel to Cancun/Playa very often and were familiar with this condo complex. This was a full family trip with grandparents, siblings, kiddos, etc. So we rented two 3 bedroom condos. We emailed to get the rooms next to each other or at least close. Well when we arrived we found out they booked one of the condos across the street. Not cool. So we fought to get a condo closer and got one, but it had 2 bedrooms with twin beds. So one married couple could not sleep together. Again not cool. I don't find too much to complain about in my reviews, but this was not a good start. The rooms were nice and clean with good A/Cs, the location is stellar and the pool is nice and spacious...something not found in this crowded strip of beach. As far as any noise, we heard none. The service was a bit weak. We asked daily to have the internet connection reset and it never was. I don't think we would go back as I think we would prefer the full service of a resort. I still gave it a high rating though because it is nice, cheap, and in the perfect spot to roam Playa/5th Ave. I understand the problems of traveling with a full family of 13, and I think most couples or families would love it.
