We stayed here for our last night in Mexico, as an alternative to staying in Cancun before flying out. The 'loft room' we had was beautiful; huge double shower, super comfortable bed and a great living area with a second tv. There isn't a fridge or mini bar which seemed a bit odd but other than that I cannot fault the room one bit. It's stunning.
The rooftop pool area is, as other reviewers have stated, just like the photos and it really is lovely. The music was a bit hit and miss as the volume was all over the place but other than that it was nice to hang out there in the morning and not at all busy.
Breakfast was nice enough but small and if you wanted a refill for your juice there was a charge but the lovely waitress refilled mine anyway as I wasn't drinking coffee.
My only, but quite major, complaint was the noise. We were unfortunately located facing the street and it was very, very, very loud. I put earplugs in but they didn't help. I tried to sleep on the sofa in the front room but could hear the music from the rooftop pool where a party was most certainly kicking off. If I managed 2 hours sleep, I think that was good going. Oh, and it was a Friday night so not sure if it's like that all week or not.
I really did like this hotel but my advice would be that if you stay there be prepared to stay out and party too. I'm pregnant so didn't have this option but if I was wanting a great place to stay where I could party hard into the early hours then you can't go past this hotel. Not ideal for pregnant ladies :) As much as I like the hotel I was thankful to only be there one night.
