Help finding affordable honeymoon Tulum/Cancun
Posted 12 October 2007 - 03:12 PM
I've gotten FI to say he wants to stay two weeks in Mexico for our wedding. So I"m on a mission to find the perfect honeymoon resort, but I still want to be somewhat frugal so I was thinking of moving resorts when our guest leave Dreams Tulum. I want something more affordable that has romantic potential, it doesn't have to be 4star or anything fancy. Just nice, clean and decent food.
It can be in Cancun or somewhere between Cancun and Tulum since we fly out of Cancun anyways.
I'm also asking Tammy(TA) for advice on this, but wanted some feedback from others who will do/have done two resorts/hotels.
Advice on going with a non- all inclusive would be appreciated as well.

Another suggestion might be to take the ferry over to Cozumel? Check out Reviews of vacations, hotels, resorts, vacation and travel packages - TripAdvisor There are many hotels that are very reasonable in price.

We went to three locations (ranked in order of preference) and LOVED the whole honeymoon:
-La Casa Que Canta - This is the most amazing place! It's expensive, but such good food (the food isn't expensive, just the lodging) and SOOO relaxing. It's just what we needed right after the wedding. Note - there is a party boat that is out until 2:30 or 3 in the cove. Either be on the party boat or don't stay there on a Saturday as you'll be awake. Tell them you want the Besame Mucho room (I think it's room 10) -It's the best room: A romantic resort - La Casa Que Canta
-Hacienda Santa Rosa in the Yucatan. This place is really amazing and beautiful and peaceful - you can hire a driver to take you around to all the pyramids - it's SO great. Luxury Collection Santa Rosa Hotels: Hacienda Santa Rosa - Hotel Rooms at luxury.com
-Hacienda Temozon - Great place, less convenient that Santa Rosa Luxury Collection Temozon Sur Hotels: Hacienda Temozon - Hotel Rooms at luxury.com
We were also looking at Hacienda Campeche - I would recommend it over Temozon

Option #2: Tulum faves: Mezzanine boutique hotel looks so chic: mezzanine | tulum, mexico ; or you could also stay at Tierras del Sol which is a small hotel with beach cabanas. Rustic but romantic!
As for All Inclusive being better than staying at a small hotel and eating out, I really can't say. I don't stay in AI's.

I was looking at tripadvisor and am thinking of Playa del Carmen.
Any body recommend a hotel in that area?
