Ok, an older property, wouldn't...
Pros: On the beach close to my dive boat and downtown
Cons: In the mornings, before 7AM: Loud conversations in the halls, suggest respect guest trying to sleep. Workers walking up dawn halls with hard heels, suggest worker wear soft sole shoes. Construction jack hammer most days for hours and hours, suggest major work during off peak season. Other: Screeching kids, nothing you can do about that I need to stay at adult only hotel.

Very friendly and helpful staff,...
Pros: Al pastor tacos were the best
Cons: Very humid rooms with a bad draft from the ac. Neighboring rooms were loud. Lots of pigeons in the restaurants and beach. The pool area always had a party atmosphere- multiple speakers playing different music. I think this place fits college party goers better. Massage was mediocre at best.

Wonderful stay at a wonderful...
Pros: The beach area was incredibly clean. Staff was constantly cleaning and grooming the area. Beach staff will move lounges and umbrellas around for you. Just ask!! The pools were wonderful. There are 3 pools. One pool is adult only. Loved that one. They are adding another pool with a swim up bar in December. All the staff is very "friendly". It was rare to see someone without a smile on their face. There is plenty of food and drink. You can always find something that you like. The resort is extremely family friendly, but you can find places to be alone. The resort is all inclusive. The Frida restaurant is part of the all inclusive food, but reservations are required. Definitely worth it!!! The Akio Asian has great food, but its location in the hotel leads it to be under-utilized. It's location would be better suited to an ice cream parlor.
Cons: The hotel IS dated. They are in the process of renovating and had a whole wing of the hotel closed while we were there. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not for you. The lobby bar is open from 5pm until 1am with dancing just about every night. It would be nice if it were open more during the day. During the day, the only bar is out by the pool.
