Lucifer has given a pretty good account of this hotel. There are usually a lot of cool people partying here during the day and a ton of hot girls on spring break. But that is about the only thing good about this hotel. They do tend to treat everyone under thirty like crap. Despite what they say online and in the brochures, you will not have access to any of the ala carte restaurants. This has nothing to do with who you book your vacation through. If you have a problem, the staff will pretend not to understand you even if you speak fluent spanish. Yet they will understand a middle aged person's english perfectly. I found out the hard way about the bracelet issue and it really destroyed my mood for the rest of the vacation. I hadn't budgeted for this and it felt like paying for sex. What is the point of even going out to the nightclubs if you can't hook up with someone from a different hotel. After this I concentrated on the girls in the hotel itself. This worked out slightly better but I found that even then a lot of the staff will give you a problem if you have a phase 2 band and try to enter phase 1 and vice versa. Although it usually wasn't that difficult to get around these people. The buffets look straight out of Fear Factor. Despite 8 days of constant drinking, I managed to lose 15 pounds.
