Avalon Grand Cancun is located on a 14-mile beach. Over 100 renovated rooms and suites feature comfortable bedding and plasma televisions. Ask the desk for a DVD player if you want to watch a family movie. Two restaurants offer Mexican and International cuisine for all meals of the day. Kids will love the two outdoor pools and enjoy their own kiddies’ pool, as well. Wild Things Kids program plans daily activities for younger travelers. Want to take an introductory diving lesson in the pool? Avalon offers it. Other activities include dance and cooking lessons and stage shows. Beach vendors rent personal watercrafts and banana-boats, too. Families can also use facilities at the two nearby sister resorts, Avalon Baccara and Avalon Reef Club Isla Mujeres.

Front desk needs training as after our checkin we had to pay for our room and tax on two separate occasions after our access cards were locked the following day. Menu items were not always available, although the food quality was great. WiFi was slow. Restaurant service was mixed.
Had a great time at this resort, its small and perfect. However, a band plays in the lobby almost every night so if you book a normal room you'll hear music until 12-1am. Better off booking a deluxe.
Aside from that, great resort, great food and great service :)
