Travelled with husband and adult daughter and son, we all loved the resort. It is made up of 4 x hotels, each are fully independent, you only need to go to the others if you want, so the hotel does not feel massive. We easily walked from room to pool and restaurant each day. But trains fun every 5 minutes...

I travel to Mexico a lot and found this resort way to huge. So many people everywhere and service was not up to par in general.
