We aren't picky and didn't spend much time in the room so that didn't matter too much to us. Shivors put pics up in the first Reef TR of the room. It was simple and clean with AC.

The only thing I would warn them abt is the on property sales pitch. They'll get hit up to do the tour for the vacation club no question...don't bother...it's a huge rip off...take our word for it
I really like that more intimate feel and the price can't be beat. I think I've gotten used to time share sharks at the resorts in the riviera maya. the worst i think was at the Occidental. We literally avoided certain people and walk different directions cause No, was just not good enough.

Awww.. i hope you didn't fall into that trap I hear those things are terrible to get out of.. or nearly impossible.
