Much smaller than MR or PC, little smaller than Jamaica, lots of stairs, resort is built on the side of a hill which means lots of stairs, but some excellent ocean views, did I mention lots of stairs? If mobility is an issue give this some thought.

Haven't been since 2014 but staff was awesome, try to score an ocean view room, small resort only about 5 or 6 bars, Hemmingways, lobby, adult pool, main pool, old royal pool...might have missed one, there would also be a bar up in the Travel Club lounge but only TC members would have access to that.

A must excursion would by Rhythms of the Night by Vallarta Adventures.

Oh and sunset, well I guess that really depends on what time of the year you are going but you will be able to catch some nice views from the resort.

Ah forgot about the boogie boards if you are into that, they had a guy down by the dive hut teaching people how to use them.

NIce salt water pool as well, different then RM, a more natural pool, very nice.
