We're at the newly renovated ABR until March 6 so ask any questions.
We're really impressed with the renovations. There's a couple more things to finish (e.g., elevators and what looks to be one last penthouse in building #1) but we don't hear any construction. We're in building #4 on the 3rd floor which is really quiet and has a great view of the ocean (not that we spend much time in the room). We heard that construction at the new Secrets will be going until the end of this year so you may notice the noise if you're in building #1 but we haven't noticed it from the beach or anywhere else.
Our only complaint is the "towel game". We've never seen it this bad at a resort and we've been to many on the Riviera Maya. Maybe it just because the resort is small, which we love, but there a lot of inconsiderate guests who think they own the loungers. People in front of us just showed up since saving their chairs for at least 4 hours!!! All I can say is don't be afraid to take "empty" loungers since so far it's the only way to get a spot at the main beach after 8:30am.
