We stayed in a one-bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen and a nice living area with a couch and chairs, a large TV, stereo, DVD player, etc. (which we never had to watch or use because there was so much to see and do), with its own slider opening out onto a good-size balcony with a pool and ocean view. The other side of this apartment had a good-size bathroom, Jacuzzi tub big enough for two, and a separate bedroom with a king-size bed and another slider opening onto the same balcony. (By the way, that unusual "sitting area" in the bathroom mentioned by a previous member is where the Jacuzzi equipment is hidden).
The whole experience was incredible: the service and staff were great and the location is perfect, right in the heart of the Hotel Zone and walking distance from restaurants, flea market and storefront shopping, and those famous Cancun nightclubs. The resort is right on the water, with a panoramic view of the northwest part of the strip leading to downtown Cancun to the west and Isla Mujeres to the east. At night you can sit out on the beach (excellent security, so you feel safe but not bothered), hear the gentle waves caress the shore, and watch the sunset, then relax as the lights come on across the water and the stars appear above with a gentle breeze, cooling off the 80-degree January night. It doesn't get any better than this.
The best restaurants nearby are "La Joya," two hotels away in the unbelievable Grand Coral Beach, the world-class flagship hotel of the Fiesta Americana chain. Make sure you go when the "Mexican Ballet" is performing. This restaurant was recommended by Travel Channel on their "Best Mexican Beach Resorts" program, as was that hotel itself, and it did not disappoint us in the least.
"Alfredo Di Roma" is less then 5 minutes away and is the strip's best-kept secret. It's an amazing Italian restaurant with impeccable service, atmosphere (with romantic music playing softly in the background), and amazingly reasonable prices. We had three glasses of wine for me, two cocktails for the wife, an appetizer, two incredible dinners, coffee, and spectacular desserts, and our bill, including a 20% tip (not required but much deserved), came to just under $100 for the two of us.
This was our second trip to Cancun. We went in 2005 before the hurricane and were amazed at how this destination has not only completely recovered from that disaster, but has actually improved. We will go back every year.
