My best friend and I stayed here a few years ago & had the best budget gals week ever!! The staff was very attentive and kind ( and no--we aren't Mexican--we are American) and our favorite concierge/bellman always had helpful tips for us on siteseeing and things to do. We didn't check in thinking this was the Ritz Carlton--we knew it was an economy hotel. We encountered NO bugs & our housekeeper was there every morning w/towels & anything we needed. Then again, my best friend & I treat people the way we like to be treated--we don't treat hotel staff like slaves. Maybe that's part of the reason we had such an awesome experience at the Aquamarina! I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. As to the "uncomfortable" beds--I slept like a baby. Not sure what kind of beds/mattresses all these little princes/princesses are accustomed to!! This resort is definitely for those of us who don't plan on "living" in our hotel. My friend & I were more interested in taking in old,downtown Cancun than being waited on hand & foot,so if you're looking for laidback the Aquamarina will do very nicely,thank you!!
