Hi. Go to the more specific forum, Puerto Morelos. That's where most folks are posting and replying to EDR questions. Remember though for every bad review theres a good one and it's all what you make of it.

Good luck and congratulations.

I was there last year. We booked a regular room and once we got there realized we needed a casita. we loved the casitas but did not like the rest of the resort too much. The casitas are much nicer and you get treated much better. We upgraded for an extra $900 for the week. Well worth it.

We have stayed at EDR and the biggest problem is the beach as many parts of it are not great. They also have an artificial reef made of large sands bags that looks hideous.

That being the case I would definitely recommend you look at one of the two Excellence Resorts for your forthcoming honeymoon.

ERC is #1 in it's locality and the new one at Playa Mujeres has taken accommodation in Mexico to a whole new level.

EMP only opened in November and as with all new resorts it has had the odd teething problem but these are now mainly fixed - we have booked to go in May and have no worries.

Recent reviews are mostly 5's and it is rocketing up TA league table.

In the recent Tripadvisor Travellers Choice award the Excellence Group one ten awards so it does show that it is a quality operation and are well worth a look if you have not already done so:
