If you’re willing to wait till you get closer to your date, travelbyjen.com has AMAZING deals on all-inclusives, including those in Riviera Maya.  My Fiance (then boyfriend) and I went to Secrets Silversands last October for $750 each including airfare and tax!!!  It was adults only, very high end, and all inclusive.  We had an amazing time, and definitely didn’t break the bank.  But I dont think the website advertises anything beyond 4 months out.

I just checked the site and she has several options in RM available in the $800 or less range, including air, depending on your departing city.

We are looking at Secrets Maroma beach, and I believe that some of the cheaper rooms are less than $3500 for 7 days

I also went to Secrets Silversands, also.  I would read tripadvisor’s site though about the resort.  So you know what to expect.  If you have very high expectations, this might not be the resort for you.  I had a great time. I think it’s a very nice adults only, all inclusive resort and the best deal.  If I go to Rivera Maya again, I will definitely go back to Secrets Silversands.

Did you check out if the Excellence is having a promotion? If I recall we got 20% off at our time of booking, and one of our friends actually ended up with 35% off. They do run promotions from time to time and imo the Excellence is definitely worth the $$, so keep checking back!!

The Excellence will price adjust too—so if you book now and see a lower price later they will give you the lower rate.

We stayed at the Excellence Playa Mujeres in a 2-story rooftop terrace room for 6 nights last June. It was $2925.

@Lunakim77: If you read the reviews from tripadvisor, you’ll see.  Secrets Silversands is considered a 4.5 star resort, not a 5 star.  Some people go there expect it to be a 5 star resort, but it’s not and so they are disappointed when they go there.  I read the reviews before going so I knew what to expect and I was 100% with the resort. I would have spent another $1000 for a 5 star resort and I honestly it wasn’t in my budget.

I just have to say….when we were in our shuttle to go to the Excellence Rivera Cancun, we stopped at the Secrets Silversands to drop a few people in the shuttle off. I have to say from the view of the resort I was able to get, it really did not look as great as I had expected it to and I was really glad we did not book there. Make sure you know what you are booking for.

I’ve been looking at Secrets Maroma.  The cheapest rates I found for that resort were through hotels.com.  A ocean view room was 3300 with a flight from my location (new orleans).  There was another room … I think partial ocean view that was less than that also.  There site has a wedding registry on it also.

Yeah, me and the Darling Husband were a bit worried when we first arrived to Secrets Silversands.  I think it is surrounded by protected parkland on 3 sides.  But once we got to our room, we weren’t worried anymore.  We had an amazing time.  It was definitely well worth it. Like, I said, I would read the reviews on tripadvisor so you know all the pros and cons.

If you’re trying to keep it under $3500 I would really recommend that you go someplace amazing, but keep it at 5 or 6 nights, rather than going to a place that’s just so-so for 7 nights.

we just booked our honemoon for secrets maroma and got a GREAT deal at around $5,000 for 2 weeks so I imagine you could stay within your budget if you’re looking to stay a week.

also, Secrets Hautlco is opening early summer of this year and they are running an amazing special, $99/night for a standard room (and nothing at this resort looks standard) if you book by a certain date. i would definitely check out their website.
