One was charging $100 per person staying at diff hotel.

We've had people complain it's expensive, we just smile and say that we understand if people can't afford to come and that we would love for everyone to be there, but we really do understand.
There are a couple of reason we choose this resort, one being that we've stayed in the chain before and had an AMAZING time and since having a DW is basically planning a vacation for everyone who comes, we didn't want to risk it with a resort we've never been to.
Usually, when people complain about the price we tell them everyting that is in cluded and they are usually impressed...ALL food, Drinks (including liquor), taxes, gratuities and even some excursions if you stay 3 or more nights.
Anyway, choose a place you love, people will complain no matter what!

We looked at the Westin in PV and it is about $200 per ROOM per night. It's hard to justify that each person would eat & drink $100 worth of food make it equal. But an AI just seems so fun and relaxing. UGHH!
Water can be expensive at non-AI hotels, as can coffee. AI's just seem so much easier as there is usually something for everyone.
SO many choices! Good luck with your planning!

I did look at the Rui's in the Mayan Riviera and there were a variety of hotels and prices .... high end to more affordable. If you can find a chain, you can stay at the higher end and guests can choose a more affordable hotel if they like. There were no day pass fees this way.
