          Prices are pretty much the same if you convert, pesos is always better when staying in budget but if u can always bargain it's Mexico after all, safe trip!

          I have not been able to get a response from my emails to the concierge or through facebook. Is there a better way to reach someone at the resort?

          The lobby is usually packed there is always a line in front of the concierge and in reception. I would try to address my inquiries to the adult select club there is always someone to answer questions
