Stayed at the Rui last winter. I felt like I was at an adult camp. Your table is assigned to you for dinner, and you remain at that spot for the duration...yuck!
Men must wear pants to dinner. This might be an European thing....wear nothing during the day, and dress up at night.
We like more freedom in our decisions.
We have been to cancun-playa around 7 times. If you have small children, the Gala is great! They have a camp for kids with two pools, a main pool, and an adult pool.
I would be happy to answer any questions.
