@CatyLady:  We always stay on the east coast near Playa del Carmen. Favorite hotel in that area, so far has been the Barcelo Maya. Theres 5 hotel sections within the resort covering roughly 3 different prices points.

Barcelo Maya Palace is their 5 star

Barcelo Maya Tropical / Barcelo Maya Colonial 4.5 star (weve stayed in the tropical twice, the last time was our wedding)

Barcelo Maya Caribe / Barcelo Maya Beach 4 star

Great hotel, amazing beaches(nicest resort beaches Ive been too) and the food is good.

I’ve been to lots of different all inclusives in Mexico and we got married in the Mayan last year but my favourite resort is the Now Jade in Puerto Vallarta. My husband and I got a good deal on it when it first opened and we loved it. The food was awesome, the pool was fun, there was 24 hour room service, and the lobby was gorgeous. The NOW chain has a few other resorts in other places around Mexico that we plan on checking out too because we loved this one so much.

@Nikkimcq:  The beaches in Cancun are amazing.  I live in Florida but nothing here comes close to the sugar soft sand in Cancun.

What kind of expereince are you looking for? Adventure? Laid Back? All inclusive?

I spend most of my time in Mexico in Isla Mujeres, a small island off of Cancun. There are a couple of all-inclusive resorts on the island, but they aren’t large. I prefer NOT to do all-inclusive becuase there are SO SO many awesome restuarants and hole in the wall spots to eat at!

The Excellence resorts.  There are 2 in Mexico….Excellence Riviera Cancun and Excellence Playa Mujeres.   They are both about 20 minutes from Cancun, just in opposite directions.   FI and I have stayed at Riviera Cancun 3 times and we are trying Playa Mujeres for the honeymoon.   They are the best resorts I’ve even stayed at!   All-inclusive and adults only with great food, entertainment and drinks!
