A few disappointing facts. No free room service; 30 peso minimum. 7 Restaurants? Never more than two open at the same time. You can't take snacks or food onto the beach with you. A quiet nights sleep? It's good they give you two pillows so you can cover your head with one. They have an open air bar where entertainers try to scream loud enough to wake the entire hotel. Tropical drinks? I asked for a Hurricane or a Mudslide and got a blank stare. They have very limited drink selection, and it's secret. Mixed drinks? None of the bartenders have a shot glass, so no two drinks are ever the same strength or taste. The food? It's better than McDonalds but not as good as Denny's. I stopped eating the pork and beef because they were so tough that my gums hurt. You have to call room service every day to get water bottles. All activities poolside are announced only in spanish. The rest was pretty much what you expect.
The good things were the room cleanliness, and some of the staff were very nice. The head waiter, Abel, was amazing. The concierge, Jorge, and the activities staff, especially Hugo, were great.
