This review is long over due. We went to this resort in June 2009. Overall the resort was what we expected. The beach was beautiful, the rooms sufficient, and the food average if not below average.
We went during the "swine flu" scare of 2009, so the resort was way below capacity. So much so, that the "beach" and "caribe" section of the hotel was closed and those guests were moved to the tropical/colonial side. I didn't mind as we received excellent service as a result, and all the beach we could ask for.
The resort is big, but my wife and and I like exercise, and would rather walk everywhere than be cramped up with no where to walk.
As stated before, the food was average/below average. The buffet was bland and lacked variety from day to day. The ala cartes were not horrible. The italian was blah, and the seafood was OK. The Japanese was the best of them all. I think hibatchi grills generally can be easily forgiven because of the show that most places put on.
The spa services were good--one of our favorite parts. I think if there were more people at the resort, then it might not have been as tranquill. In spite, we found it tranquil, and the massages were decent.
Because of the multitude of places to stay in Riviera Maya, we wouldn't go back. We had a nice time, and were treated well--It just ddn't have the "wow" factor that i'm sure other places have.
