My husband and I spent a week there to celebrate or anniversary. The rooms are outstanding and if there was availability again we'd take our entire family. We took the trip as an Interval International trade. The food at the pool bar wasn't all that great and all the "fruity" drinks get watered down during happy hour. However, if you stick with margaritas you'll be just fine. Our only true quarm is that they charge you to death for things that should just be standard. There is a charge to use the gym and even to weigh your luggage before going to the airport. There is a shuttle to get to Playa del Carmen however you have to book it in advance. They don't really publicize it well I actually learned of it from other reviews. If you don't book - you don't go. It really puts a damper on vacation to have to plan when you'll return to be picked up or not get on the shuttle. May there is a good reason, just wish I knew what it was. They also have a laundry room Czar monitoring how much clothes go into the machine. I do think that's a bit much. All in all, awesome place, just a few quirks.
