We were deciding between the Secrets Maroma & Secrets Silversands.  I liked the Maroma’s decor, but it seemed like the Silversands will have more to do.  And the package was a fanastic deal!

Also – my sister has stayed at the Excellence Riveria Cancun several times and absolutely loves it.

You’re in luck-I’ve been to both!

Zoetry is stunning. There are a lot of resorts that try to be classy, but Zoetry really nails it. Everything about the resort is amazing. But, if you’re looking for nightlife, you’re not going to find it there.

Royal Hideaway is also exceptionally nice. It does have more dining options than Zoetry, and the rooms are very well done.

If you’re looking for something with a plunge pool, and some nightlife, I would try Excellence, El Dorado, or Secrets Silversand.

You can see photos of both Zoetry and Royal Hideaway on our Facebook page.

Hope that helps!

We honeymooned @ Zoetry. It is really beautiful with amazing service, food, and amenities. No, there’s no nightlife, but you can hire a car or call a cab and go into Cancun if you really want to dance or experience a vibrant nightlife. We talked to a lot of people at the resort who did this (but consider booking cars or call cabs either online or through your travel agent… the resort’s transportation rates are high, and you can find a much better deal elsewhere). 

As far as the plunge pool, I really liked the idea of one too, but after seeing them in person, I’m glad we didn’t get one.  They add a lot to the price of the room @ Zoetry, they’re not private at all, and the water is only a few feet deep. We walked by many of the rooms with them, and we were glad we hadn’t splurged. I could imagine a jacuzzi being really nice, but those aren’t available @ Zoetry. 

Hope that helps!
