The rooms are so gorgeous, not cheap at all. Everything looks brand new. The bathrooms in the rooms are all marble with a makeup mirror, hair dryer, bidet, private commode area, and all your soaps and shampoos, etc.
You can stay in the Royalty area and get the royal treatment. There's an area in the center of this royal area where you can eat continental breakfast every morning from 7-9, then they have snacks and beverages from noon-5pm. Hor d'oeuvres and cocktails are served from 7-9pm. They have all the liquor sitting out with mixers, and you make your own drinks. If a certain liquor runs out, just request another one, and they get it. You get a selection of a special scented pillow each night, and your bed is turned down with mints. They get you anything you need. You have to pay extra in this area though. We paid $40/pp each day for this treatment.
You get a towel card when you check in, and you can get as many towels as you want a day, one at a time, of course. If you lose it, you have to pay for it, though; it's like this at every resort. There are plenty of seats/loungers by the pool and on the beach. They have some areas that are shaded, if you don't like sitting directly in the sun. They have a swim-up bar at the south pool, and a bar beside the north pool. Waiters are always going around to see if you want something.
There are many restaurants at the resort, and shops. There's one shop/convenience store where you can get sandwiches, sodas, toiletries, at pretty reasonable prices. All the other restaurants are kind of expensive, though. Watch out, they will bring you bottled water if you don't ask for a glass of water, and they charge you for every bottle or every glass of tea/soda you ask for.
The resort has an all-inclusive plan you can purchase which is about $85/day, I believe. I would highly suggest purchasing it, if you're going to spend a lot of time at the resort. You can go outside of the resort and probably eat and drink alcohol a lot cheaper. Alcoholic beverages at the resort are rather high--about $6 each.
The resort even has a nightclub and a huge convention center on the bottom level. They even have different activies you can purchase onsite, such as scuba diving lessons, parasailing, excursions/tours, deep sea fishing. Aquaworld is the one that provides that. There's lot to do there, and it's so huge, you could probably stay there all week and never leave the resort. And you would feel like you were in heaven. Very, Very nice!!!!

The lobby and surrounding game and bar areas were all air-conditioned, which was nice, since it was muggy and piping hot outside. There are two shops within the lobby as well as two bars that open around 5pm every evening. There is also a game area with two pool tables (which are free) and an arcade.
Our room was nice. We had a lagoon view room with a king-size bed and its own private balcony. The room was also air-conditioned and very clean, with extra amenities, such as a refrigerator stocked with water and a safe. The beds were a little hard, but they did not bother my sleep at all. Overall, the rooms were quite nicely decorated and comfortable.
There is only one indoor restaurant, which was nice inside, and the food was alright (we were sick for most of our trip, so nothing really looked appetizing). There are two outdoor restaurants, one of which is only opened for lunch and midnight snacks daily and serves mostly barbeque-style meals. The other outdoor restaurant is beachfront and open for all meals daily, and serves meals similar to the indoor restaurant. All are buffet style, but the outdoor restaurant serves é la carte dinners every night and reservations are required 24 hours in advance. Mostly, there was nothing special about the food, and the breakfasts were probably the best meal of the days there.
As for the amenities, there is a ton of stuff to do at this hotel. It is located within the hotel strip, so there are malls and restaurants located within walking distance. The hotel offers amenities such as nightly performances (which we enjoyed) and daily activities, including beach volleyball, contests, water sports, etc. There is always something to do as far as activities, and yet there are plentiful amounts of lounge chairs for those who just want to soak it all in. The amenities are by far one of the best features about this hotel.
As for the beach, the beach is by far the best beach in Cancun, as the waves are big enough to play in, yet they don't overpower guests, and the sand is soft and white - perfection. One night we decided to go down to the beach and give a try at bodysurfing, and it was one of the most amazing experiences I will always remember.
Overall, the hotel is a nice place to stay. We were a little skeptical after our trip just because of our being sick, but for those who aren't picky eaters, this place is for you. The best beach, tons of activities, and nice, clean rooms: what more could you ask for?

However, it is a lot of fun and a great place to bring your family. Everyone has their own cabin, some have kitchens. All have separate bedrooms, etc. This place was built in the late 1800''s so there is quite a bit of history.
Has it''s own fishing pond right outside of the cabins and with a 5 minute walk though the woods, you will be at a larger lake. This is an all inclusive type resort, where food and activities are all included in your price. Different meals/menus each and every meal. Planned activities like hiking, games, story telling, etc. Most of the staff lives right there, above the main building. They do your laundry for you, basically whatever you need. Every Friday there''s a lobster cook out beside the lake.
And you have a very, very good chance of seeing moose and other animals. It''s in the middle of the woods, nothing for miles. The most silent place you will ever go to. Highly recommended IF you like the wilderness, outdoors, etc. If you''re a true city person, you''ll hate it. (Just being honest!)
Price per room may be wrong, I''m not quite sure actually.

The staff and maid service will bend over backwards to make you happy. They gave us a room to shower in when we did not have to be at the airport until the afternoon. The concierge gave us helpful restaurant and shopping tips as well as discount coupons.
