We stayed at Secrets Maroma Beach when we got engaged. It’s slightly cheaper than Playa Mujeres and I think just as nice.  Adults only.  Very classy.  Delicious food.  Gorgeous beach. Just perfect.

We did Secrets Capri and I would NOT recommend it. There were too many annoying issues we dealt with depsite the fact that went into it pretty open-minded without the highest of expectations.

We are going to Valentin Imperial for 7 days in June. It’s cheaper than some of the others (by a few hundred $$) and right next door to Secrets Maroma I think, but still checked all the boxes of what we wanted in our honeymoon. The reviews seem to be pretty good.

I stayed at Barcelo Palace Riviera Maya and it was gorgeous! There were kids but they stayed at the kiddy pool.  I would definitely recommend it!!

We stayed at the Excellence Riviera Cancun (in the Riviera Maya) and it was absolutely amazing. My younger brother just got back about a week ago and told me that everything I described about the place didn’t do it justice. They loved it just as much as we did. So you have double the votes over here!

From the research I’ve done, Secrets looks decent although I haven’t stayed there. What I like about them is they don’t require bracelets! I hate looking back at photos from other all inclusives I’ve stayed at to see the bright yellow band around my wrist! Not to mention, nothing screams tourist more than that indicator!

I have stayed at The Palace resorts though, 3 (two in Cancun and one in Cozumel) and visited two in the Riviera Maya. We had 0 complaints staying at any of them (I think they are now called Palace Wyndham though)

We stayed at the El Dorado Royale. I HIGHLY recommend it. We had a wonderful time there and it’s adults only and all inclusive (except for excursions which of course are extra). I know several other bees have stayed there and had a pleasant experience too. (Oh and there are no bracelets!)

We also went to Excellence Riviera Maya for our summer vacation last year & LOVED it!!

We have stayed at several all inclusive resort & Excellence has been the best so far: great food & EXCELLENT service! Seriously, they really cater to you: champage as soon as you walk in the door to check in, waiters on the beach so you don’t even have to get up to get a drink/food. We had a great time!

The only thing I will say about Riviera Maya is the water isn’t as clear as Cancun b/c RM seems to churn up the sand more. Also RM is about 30mins from the city center of Cancun and is isolated. So if you wanted to go out bar hopping, the resort does have a party bus option, but this would be a one time thing. So, if you are wanting a super fun nightlife scene, then I would not recommend Rivera Maya (doesn’t matter which resort.)

We are staying at the Royal in Playa del Carmen.  It’s all inclusive and right off of 5th Avenue.  Haven’t been there yet, but I will be in about 3 weeks! Round trip air-fare, ocean view room, swim with dolphins was around $3500 for us for 5 days.  And that’s for June which is definitely peak travel season.

@vintagemodernbride:  I love the El Dorado chain, we’re doing 9 nights at the El Dorado Seaside Suites!! Im glad you enjoyed your stay.

@blondie_bride:  I recommend El Dorado as well. And I love that you can go between the sister hotels while staying at one, so you can check out the different restaurants, etc.

We are going to Aventura Spa Palace! My sister went there on her honeymoon and she said it was awesome.  Plus, you get $1500 in resort credits if you pre-pay the all-inclusive fee 30 days in advance.  It;s adults only, which is a plus.  Also, I think it was/is being bought by Hardrock but that won’t change anything for a while they said.
