PLEASE HELP! I’m an over planner, over researcher and I can’t make a decision!
I just can’t seem to choose between Secrets Marmora Beach or Excellence Riveria Cancun for our Christmas trip. Can anyone who has stayed at both properties please give me any feedback on the differences. We are late 40’s and early 50’s. We both work in the hospitality industry and unfortunately have really high expectations when it comes to the food. We are not high-maintenance, but have discriminating taste. We are traveling from Northern Nevada (coming along way) so beach view is important to us. Don’t care about night life or party scene –though it doesn’t bother us either. We want a luxury experience because we are seriously splurging. Are the preferred clubs worth the extra money if the view is top on the list? The price comparison between the two is about $1k difference. Secrets comes in around $6500 for 7 nights with airfare. I’ve never been to the area and never done an AI before. I’m still in sticker shock on the price (which I know I will get over as I’m truly a believer in you get what you pay for) I have read many of the reviews and I think I’ve made up mind; then, I change it. My gut says Secrets is the one. But I’m one of those people who have to completely and totally rule out all options to know I made the right decision. I’m a complete Pain in the butt! I freely admit it. I’m a travel research junkie and I’m looking for enablers to keep me going or help me stop! Thanks everyone.
