The room itself was nice and very clean, but when I booked this hotel, we were told that we would have a full ocean-view room, which was not the case. It seems that the hotel gives the RCI members rooms that are not as nice because we have a timeshare already. The people without a timeshare are offered the better rooms and then are pressured into going to their timeshare presentation at the Moon Palace. As this being our first experience in exchanging, we were a bit taken aback.

The lobby was a nice size, not too big; it is connected to the lounge area with bar, and at night there is something always going on there. The had a happy hour each night starting at 6PM with special types of food, which was very nice to have after getting back about that time on some excursions.
They had a couple of special shows in the ballroom of the hotel, which are a must to go and see all of them. Circus night was one night, which was fantastic, along with different types of dancing shows. All a must see.
The pool area was small, but very nice and very clean, with activities throughout the day depending if people wanted to participate. The beach was very nice, with huts and lounge chairs all around, and bar service now and then. The water when we went end of June was warmer in the ocean than in the pool. The waves were kind of large at times, but a lot of fun - no undercurrent when we were there.
The rooms were nice and clean, and the maids are very friendly and try very hard to please you. Except for the problem we had when we first checked in the unit they assigned us (TC108), our second room was very nice with a very nice ocean view.

Our room had a great view, a hot tub, and a big bathroom. It was spacious and very comfortable. I wish it had indoor entry into the rooms for a more luxury feel. It was very warm and humid when we visited and I would have loved an air-conditioned interior hallway.
If you are looking to honeymoon here in Cancun, like we did, beware... it still has a "Mexico" feel to it. There is a constant raw sewage smell everywhere you go and the crowds are a bit young (spring break-ish). We had a good time and enjoyed ourselves, but didn't ever feel like we were staying in a luxurious place and never felt pampered as you should on your honeymoon. I recommend this resort/town for a young couple vacation spot, but not necessarily a honeymoon location.

The food was delicious. One of the restaurants was under construction while we were there, so it was a little limited, but we could always go to one of the other resorts and try their restaurants. Each night there was the option of a buffet, or a la carte. Most nights we went a la carte, just so we didn't stuff ourselves.
Taxis were expensive, but the bus was cheap, 6 pesos per person. We went diving in Cozumel while we were there, through one of the resort tours. It was beautiful but a very long day! We also went to xel-ha! It's an ecological park that was recommended to us over Xcaret because we were told we would see more fish and things. That was pretty neat, it was an all-inclusive park, so all food and drinks were included, as well as towels and snorkel gear. There were a lot of people there, but it's a huge place! I highly recommend it (the resort and the park)!
