Hi all – This is actually for a vacation with my SO, not a honeymoon but thought I might get some advice through the honeymoon board. Anyone been to playa del carmen or surrounding areas? Recommendations on where to stay? I’ve been to Cancun twice but want something a bit different. I am leaning toward one of the Barcelo restorts technically in Xpu-ha (i think) or a RIU but just based on tripadvisor and travelocity reviews.

Depends on your budget and how close you want to be to playa drl Carmen – walking, short taxi, etc.
I have been been to cancun and puerto morelos and have research playa and cancun a lot LOL. We are going to cancun ultimately for our honeymoon and love playa/mexico in general.
I can make some recommendationa as to what to review on trip advisor if I know your budget and location

We honeymooned at The Royal Playa del Carmen and I can’t recommend it enough! Amazing!

I am also a huge fan of ‘Bahia Principe’! Love that resort!
I would also recommend ‘Excellence riviera maya’ but its a little further from Playa del Carmen.

We went to the Catalonia Royal Tulum in July and absolutely loved it. It’s actually in Xpu-Ha, which is a mile-long beach that is the most perfect white sand beach I’ve ever seen. It’s the only “big” resort on the beach (it’s not even that big, but the other places are small hotels). The pool is amazing, the beach is awesome, the food was really good. We actually enjoyed it more than the resort where we honeymooned (Royal Hideaway Playacar), which was much more expensive.

Thanks all, we’re thinking about that royal Catalonia in xpu ha or one of the barcelo resorts in that same area. Looking at travelicity flight and hotel packages for around $1400/person in april or May
