The hotel was beautiful, and the service was impeccable.
A few draw backs, though:
The food was subpar at best. I suppose this isn't a huge surprise given it's an all-inclusive kind of deal. However, even the Mexican restaurant wasn't great (... and it's in Mexico...). The wine was cheap (Yellow Tail, for example)-- I would recommend ponying up for a decent bottle. (They have a list of wines available for purchase)
Second, you had to pay for the wi-fi, and the signal (marketed as "high speed") was sluggish and lagging. In this day in age, there's no excuse for not having free, working wifi. (On the flip side, it does kind of force your hand to stay off the grid and have a tech-free vacation.)
Third, the "hot" water was tepid at best in the shower, which was disappointing. Given the warm climate, however, this wasn't a huge deal.
