Went on the Student City spring break trip to Cancun last year and could not have been more disappointed. For starters, after originally telling us we would be flying United, we were switched last minute to Spirit Airlines (an airline which literally makes you pay for even your carry-on and get this...
a 40 pound limit for checked bags). Beyond the terrible travel, the hotel was a complete flop as well. Half of the hotel is sectioned off for non-student city guests and not only is the pool nicer on this side, but the restaurants are off-limits. At the restaurants which were available, the food was absolute trash and was often paired with a wait of at least an hour for dinner time.
Lets see what next? Oh yea the drinks sucked too. We traveled all the way to mexico just to margaritas made with the cheapest margarita mix and bottom shelf tequila money can buy. To top it all off, many of my friends had the A/C in their rooms go out during their stay.
We also bought the club passes, which was not an entirely bad decision considering there is absolutely nothing to do at night on the resort, however the pitch they gave us about having our own private line to get into the club was ***, student city is the line.
To sum it up, this trip is completely overpriced and will constantly try to nickel and dime you at every turn. If you really want to go to mexico, put in the extra effort and plan it out yourself, it will literally save you $1000.
