If you still want the feel of a big resort -- the Grand Mayan or Mayan Palace which shares the same grounds is a gorgeous place along the Riviera Maya. Anyone who stays here will love it! We've been there twice and plan on spending our second week of the wedding there.
But again check out locogrino, you will find tons and tons of ideas to choose from!

Also take into consideration how comfortable your guests may feel walking into a restaurant- will they need to be near more American places to eat or will they be comfortable eating at a more authentic Mexican restarant?
There are plenty of AI's that are under $200 a person per night- the Riu's , Iberostars just to name a couple.

There's also other non-inclusive resorts in the area - La Tortuga, La Petite Lafitte, and if I could afford it, Le Reve looks really nice and private.

I don't think you'd want a non-inclusive resort outside of town, it wouldn't be useful if there was nowhere nearby to eat.

However, at the last minute, after our invitations were sent out! (eek!) we found Sandos Playacar Beach Resort and Spa. It is VERY REASONABLE for an all inclusive. I believe it's $180 a night for 2 people. That of course includes all you can eat and drink and 24 hour room service! So...the difference I believe was $40 a day between the resort and La Tortuga..so we just decided that w/ drinks and food..it would be close to $40 a day staying at La Tortuga. So we decided to do the AI resort..and everyone was all for it! so although we loooooooooooooooooove staying in town, we decided that it would be better that way. Plus to have your wedding at an AI is so much cheaper! We are having a legal ceremony and I believe minus the photographer for 28 people it's only $1800!! so it's a great deal since it is an AI, the meal and drinks are included.
We would've loved to have our reception on the beach, but they charge an extra fee for that. We figured we are at an AI so why pay extra for that? we are going to do it at one of their restaurants..and since there is no dancing or partying allowed in the restaurant, we are bringing our guests to the Blue Parrot Beach Club for the after party since we have a deposit w/ them. So we won't lose out on any money!
Good luck on your planning.
if you are planning to stay in town..there are a TON of hotels. Go to tripadvisor..and you can see there. They list them all!
