Riviera Maya Mini- Honeymoon - looking for secluded, private resort - opinions welcome!!

Recommended Posts

My Fiance and are are getting married this October at Azul Sensatori (Puerto Morelos). We'll be at that resort with our guests for a week and then plan to have a mini-honeymoon for 3 nights before flying back and re-entering the real world.

 

We're in the market for the perfect resort in the area, close to Playa (or farther south) preferably. We're leaning towards boutique, secluded, non-all inclusive resorts....we found a killer deal at La Reve for a bungalow, fell in love with the idea, were SO excited and then found out it's the ONE weekend in October they're booked :(. Very disappointing. They recommended The Tides, Zoetry or Maroma (I know there are a few there) so we'll look into those. I also found Banyan Tree Mayakoba which looks nice - they have the private plunge pools that we're now stuck on thanks to the La Reve rooms. 

 

Any opinions would be great. Thank you!

Here is where 2 photographers who have seen HUNDREDS of resorts stay when we take vacations from our life in paradise: http://delsolphotography.com/blog/post-485/Hotel-Esencia-ultimate-indulgence

 

Sounds crazy, but we live in playa del carmen and sometimes, we just need to experience private private beaches, hotel Esencia  and Xpu-Ha beach is unreal.  Corona actually rents the hotel for photo shoots and filming commercials.

 

here are more photos and a video montage:

 

Or next door to Esencia, and totally different in terms of a feel, is Al Cielo.  http://delsolphotography.com/blog/post-221/Al-Cielo-Hotel-vimeo-video-HD

 

You may want to think about Tulum too, there is along long list of amazing places :)

Good luck,

matt

Matt - thank you - you're such a great source for info!! We booked at La Reve (the bugalow, beachside, private pool) and then found out that a wedding booked a buyout that same weekend. We were crushed!!! Nothing is comparing YET (or is way more expensive). Esencia is gorgeous but a little pricier than we can swing at the moment. I keep checking back for deals. Have you been to The Tides or La Zebra in Tulum?

I don't know about either of those but the ruins at Tulum were my favorite part of our recent trip to the RM for a wedding! Absolutely gorgeous views. The best time we had in Mexico, period!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
