After a lot of to-ing and fro-ing between my favourite destination and Mexico I think we edging towards taking our first ever holiday there next Spring and I would really appreciate some input on resorts based on our criteria below.
Travelling from London during the last week of March
Staying for 10/11 nights on an AI basis
Budget up to around £3,500
Adults only wherever possible
Really want a Jacuzzi for two in the room
Some snorkeling from the beach would be great
Some informal evening restaurants, eg, where long shorts would be allowed (unless this is REALLY abnormal)
No preference on resort area at this stage, we just want to relax with some sort of pampering and some great food and drink where you aren't hassled for time share/tours/massages etc.
Sounds simple but there are so many hotels it's hard to choose. The Royals and El Dorado properties seem to be well within budget and good options at the moment and offered by mainstream tour operators but I am happy to look at some of the more unusual areas.
My pet hate in large resorts is noise from other guests - slamming doors etc so I would tend to favour a smaller resort but it's not a problem I see mentioned often in reviews so perhaps not terribly applicable.
