I want to start off by saying that I have been to Playa Del Carmen about 10 different times...love the area! My family has stayed at The Royal about 5 of those times, and most recently, we stayed at Aventura Spa Palace. I absolutely love The Royal (the luxurious atmosphere, delicious food, and especially the location). At Aventura Spa Palace, I loved the $1500 resort credit (allowed us to get free spa services, go swimming with the dolphins, etc.) and the ability to travel to Playacar Palace, which is right in the 5th Avenue area. Although I would jump on the opportunity to go back to any of these resorts, my fiancee and I (in our 20's) want to go to an all-inclusive that neither of us have been to!
Therefore, the reason for this post.... what resort is better than The Royal and will give us the perks of a Palace resort? Secrets Maroma sounds beautiful, but we will be going on our honeymoon in the summer time, and reviews about mosquitoes and lack of air conditioning scares me! Also, my fiancee and I love 5th Avenue, and we are afraid that taking a cab to 5th Avenue every night may become too pricey due to the distance. Any thoughts and/or recommendations for other resorts? Adults-only is a must....Edited: 11 July 2012, 23:09
