We stayed 5 nights at this hotel in our vacation trip to Cancun. We had a king size bed and a crib for our baby daughter with a side view to the ocean.
The location of the hotel is right in the middle of the Zona Hotelera (hotel zone), right in front of the beach. The hotel is grand and luxurious with a conventions center feel to it.
We found the room a bit small, nice furnishings and the bathroom is a little dated, although everything is well maintained. Most days we left our room early and came back in the early afternoon for a quick refresh and found our room still not done by housekeeping. We finally called after a few days and got the issue corrected. Also, at this level of hotel you would expect some perks included such as WiFi, however, there is a daily $15 for it.
There is a 7 Eleven, and OXXO (convenience store), a McDonald's and a Papa John's within walking distance of the hotel. There is also a little fish taco place next to the Crab House restaurant with excellent fish and shrimp tacos (15 MEX pesos each! about US $1) which are worth trying. Also, if you stand near the Crab House restaurant you can use their WiFi for free! :)
For transportation, we also recommend the local buses which are US$1 per trip. We suggest choosing the nicer buses (digital signs on top) which have WiFi on them.
Overall our experience with this hotel was good and would recommend it for your visit. I hope they work on some of the smaller details.
