Best Rooms in Playa Mujeres / Cancun

Looking to book an anniversary trip to the Cancun area for my wife and I. Which hotel would you say has the best room? The most "wow" factor. So far it looks like the Excellence Playa Mujeres is hard to beat with the two level rooftop pool room. Wondering if anyone has other recommendations like that?

Can also been Cozumel or other parts of Mexico... help me out travel experts!

The nicest room we have ever stayed in is the Grand Class suite at Grand Velas. Everything about it was pure luxury, as is the resort overall.

Next would be the Governor's Suite at Le Blanc, the Beachfront Casita Suite at Blue Diamond, the one bedroom infinity pool suite at El Dorado Maroma, the Aqua Suite at Live Aqua.

We have stayed in an Excellence Club RTT at EPM and preferred the rooms/resorts above to that.

I think it's a matter of personal opinion. If you like a room with private deck and plunge pool then certainly EPM fits the bill.

Others would prefer something right on the sand overlooking a gorgeous blue beach. The oceanfront rooms at Secrets Maroma or iberostar grand may be best for this.

Others may prefer the large villas that are typically off the beach and have plunge pools and lots of privacy.

jungle rooms and high rises would never make it to the top of my list, but again just personal taste.

Agree that this is a matter of personal opinion.

The "pool" at EPM in the RTT was a surprise, as it was actually more of a large plastic tub, not an actual pool. And the uncomfortable beds and inexpensive linens did not make for a luxurious experience IMO. For me, it is about more than a deck and plunge pool.

The rooms at EPM are gorgeous. We have stayed at a roof top at EPM and absolutely loved it.

As far as favorite rooms go, our favorites have been the Swimup Honeymoon Suite at Secrets Maroma Beach (just steps from the ocean, very warm private pool), and the Grand Class Suite at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit (by Puerto Vallarta).

I for one am grateful for reliable, unwavering unbiased opinions from posters like Caviar. I prefer to find out in advance of spending thousands of dollars and ending up disappointed.

We also recently stayed in the Governor's Suite at Le Blanc, and it is a very nice room, also.
