This was our first trip to Mexico with our daughter. Food: typical all-inclusive food, not incredible but not bad. Rent a cabana. It was so nice to have our own space on the beach. Raul is a great concierge for the pool and beach/cabana. The one day he was off, we noticed a lack in the service at the cabana....

All of the employees were so helpful and positive and the entertainment was always a blast to watch or participate in! The food was amazing I highly suggest the Mexican. There isn't that much room on the beach but there's plenty around the pool so there is always room for everyone!
