The great Riviera Maya debate!
Posted 09 June 2009 - 05:28 AM
I just got back this past Sunday from the Mexican Riviera Maya. I went down there for my site visit with my fiancee, both of our parents and his brother and brother's wife. We wanted input from our families, as well as an excuse for us to all vacation together.
We visited Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, Paradisus Riviera Cancun and Royal Hideaway Playacar. All were very nice, but so different from one another. We loved the layout of Paradisus, the romance and elegance of Secrets Capri and the attention to detail at Royal Hideaway. In the end, we have to rule out Royal Hideaway simply because it will be too expensive for our guests to stay there. We're now left debating between Secrets and Paradisus and can't make up our mind!
If anyone out there has any positive or negative feedback about either resort, I'd greatly appreciate it! I'm hoping to put down my deposit and lock in a date AND a resort by this weekend, but if I can't make up my mind I may be flying back AGAIN to check out more spots to better make up my mind. I'm hoping to avoid that!

A quick pro/con:
Pros: 1 wedding a day
Liked the wc
Beach-front ceremony available
Excellent restaurant/concierge service
Cons: Seagrass on the beach
Dislike spa and spa services
Kids - wasn't a problem while I was there, but an adults-only would
have been even better
Rainy day option is a ballroom
