    Hi all!

    We're trying to decide on a hotel for our honeymoon and looking for help! Here are the hotels (and rooms) that we are considering:

    Rosewood Mayakoba - deluxe overwater lagoon
    Fairmont Mayakoba - signature casita suite
    Mandarin Oriental - deluxe palafito
    The Tides - royal villa
    Maroma Beach Resort - oceanview room
    Banyan Tree Mayakoba - spa pool villa

    Two of our main concerns are food (mainly variety -- we're not looking to travel offsite, so are concerned that there may not be enough options) and insects (most of these are carved into the jungle/mangroves, so we want to make sure that bugs aren't an issue).

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

      How fun! Planning a honeymoon...

      I've stayed at the Rosewood Mayakoba, the Fairmont Mayakoba and The Tides. The Tides is beyond romantic but the food options are extremely limited and it's very buggy. Very. The Fairmont Mayakoba in my opinion is a little "mass" produced and better for a wedding, not a honeymoon. Rosewood is extremely romantic and not buggy at all! It's a gorgeous hotel, very modern.

      Hope that helps!

        We are going to stay at the Tides. We visited it back in December and absolutely loved the intimacy of the litle bungalows lost in the jungle. The Spa is beautiful. We were not bothered by bugs at the time - nor in the hotel we get married in (Le Reve, which is 2 hotels away on the same beach). This might be because it was not hot yet, though, we'll see one month from now !

        As for the food : the Tides is located on a beach where you have several other places that serve food. There's the Thai Beach Club of the hotel princess (5-10 min walk towards Cancun), it's typical cafe food - salads, burgers, sandwiches. There's the restaurant of Le Petit Laffite (just next door). And there's the restaurant from Le Reve (as I said, 2 hotels down towards Playa del Carmen). So if you're tired of the Tides, you can walk to each of these places for a change.

            Is the Rosewood all-inclusive? Any idea how far it is from the Cancun airport?
