We are debating between Excellence Playa Mujeres and "The Royal" in Cancun for a friend's 40th birthday next year. We've been to Secrets Maroma and Iberostar Tucan and each beach was nearly flawless. I've heard the beach at EPM is not that good and we are beach people so we do not want to be disappointed.
Can anybody shed light on either resort? The beach obviously is very important but any comments are welcome.
