Jennifer (Forest Lake, MN) said, 'Our family of 5 with 3 teens had an exceptional experience - very classy but not intimidating - great place - would recommend to anyone looking for a safe, clean, beautiful Mexcian getaway!'
Pool: gorgeous, clean, great setting
Beach: Beautiful WHITE sand and aqua water - they rake it each morning - nice places to be in the sun or shade
Food/Drink: nice variety of foods - great to be able to choose to eat at a restaurant or the buffets
Entertainment: we didn't really take advantage - just there to relax
Accommodations: I'd say for 5 star, they were a bit dated and possibly need some improvements, but the location near the beach and our rooms next door to each other were perfect
Service: Great staff all the way around - they continually pick up to keep the place looking amazing - FRESH sheets everyday - and a clean room to come home to after a day at the beach was wonderful
Overall: We have never done "all inclusive" with the family -would DEFINITELY do it again! We really loved the resort, the variety and that it WAS just like the pictures we saw - of course having EVERY day sunny helped too :)
