We travel at least once a year, and this place was nice...We had 1100 block and were on third floor. The buffet was quite nice, found something at ervery meal, staff was very polite and did a great job. But we do tip a dollar or two at most meals and try to spread the money around they all deserve a little. I do wish they would only book alacarts daily instead of letting you book them all at once for the whole week. Did not matter food was great in buffet restaurant. The only issue being guest kept putting bagels in toaster and it got jammed everyday, kind of funny they would do it over and over,LOL. who needs toast everyday anyway, I survived quite well without it.
Reyna was our maid and she was awesome, left a dollar a day and some chocolate or candy...At the end lelt a gift bag of assorted items and five dollars. The pool entertainment and evening entertainment were a little slow, but the music was good in disco at night. All day in sun to tired to play late at night.
We took Chechenitza tour, my oh my 17 hour day. way to long for me, also a little dissapointing as Lara from Nolitours was not honest enough to tell us about the real length of tour, honesty is always appreciated, also the flea market atmosphere and begging children all inside and around this wonder of the world was sad. I wanted to experience the atmosphere,did not happen,,,but the jeep tour around Cozumel was awesome,,best day there,, the ruins are not so spendid but you get to experience them in peace and you feel in awe of this place.
All in all it was good, avoid the office beyond check in as they will suck you in to take a tour for cheep day trips, only 10.00 difference than booking with Nolitours, Sunwing, etc...but you won't lose three hours of your day and find out you can upgrade to Royal Club for $55.00 daily or buy timeshare at a low minium cost of $37,000.00 Minimum. LOL not kidding.
