There's been a mixture of reviews, some good and some bad, and most are bringing up the same issues: cold pools, brown/smelly water, rubbish beach, spotty maid service, lack of choice re. restaurants. I thought I'd start a thread so everyone can voice their concerns.
The cold pools don't bother me: I don't like heated pools on holiday, I like to cool down (yes, I'm odd!); beach doesn't bother me; and I'm sure all the restaurants will be open for all meals once the resort gets more guests.
BUT, I'm v concerned about the leaky showers, and the water. I'm HOPING the water issue is just because of teething problems; I'd really hate it if it was smelly all the time, yuk.
I'm also concerned about the maid service. I'm not bothered about turn down, I think it's pretty pointless; but not doing rooms until the afternoon?! I expect rooms to be cleaned by midday. If this is a problem now, I can't help wondering what it'll be like when the resort is at capacity...
I'm also a bit concerned by the fact you have to order room service once dinner is over. If we head into Cancun or Playa, we're going to want snacks when we get back, and having to order room service will be a pain.
How does everyone else feel?
