I personally have never been, but for those of my friends who have gone, the general consensus was the same : do not book any of the ones (xel ha or xcaret) that combine Tulum because you will be extremely rushed and not given as much opportunity to enjoy either site. (for adrenline junkies, I did do the Tulum Extreme which includes rappeling, zipline over the jungle, cenote snorkeling, and Tulum ruins visit...pretty cool!)
Everyone I talked to had fun at all of those above places mentioned, although they did say that they were a bit more commercialized/americanized and the amount of fish you see during snorkeling has decreased 3 fold in the past few years (but that is just THEIR perspective, please don't let it deter you if you really want to go because, they DID have fun)
If you are into snorkeling, there is one excursion that takes you to a cenote, an outdoor freshwater pool (where they have Newlywed Mayan Sacrifice, which is like a 17 foot jump into the pool!), and Yakul Lagoon in Akumal which is AMAZING because you start in fresh water surrounded by schools of blue and purple fish, then swim out a mile into the saltwater ocean inlets with stingray, turtles, coral, etc)
