The resort is fairly new and the grounds and area were amazing. I was excited knowing that the ground that I was walking on was where the ancient Mayan culture once existed. If you looked outside of the the resort, it was dense jungle and we were situated on a private beach.
The guards at the gate were a tad bothersome, though. Not because they bothered us, but just because it is a little disconcerting knowing that armed guards are needed to keep people from possibly being kidnapped. The resort that we were at seemed to have the reputation of accommodating Americans who had money.
The rooms were standard, bordered by an open hallway that allowed for all kinds of creatures to come crawling in. The resort was nice and the pool was AWESOME. It has your standard pool bar, and if you think Mexico is a cheap vacation, think again. The food at the resort is pricey! But they do have a video that shows food and beverage handling standards, which are obviously directed towards Americans. All water and ice are filtered and purified, which is nice, and they have standards for their meats to keep people from getting sick. Inside of the resort, we had no trouble trusting the food or drink that we consumed and felt very safe eating and drinking it.
The only thing that I didn't like is that when they see an American, everybody seems to want a tip for doing the smallest thing. I felt like George Jefferson always having to tip his doorman.
