Posted this in the Cancun forum but thought I would ask here too.
My wife and I decided to make a last minute trip to the Cancun area in ten days. We just want to get away and relax.
We have been to Cancun and the Riveria Maya numerous times. The last two times we stayed at the Royal and Le Blanc.
Do to poor planning on our part, there are few options options available within our budget for our upcoming trip. We are currently booked t Secrets Silver Sands which looks like a nice resort and good value.
Our concern is all the negative comments regarding the beach. The beach area definitely does not look up to par with our resorts we have stayed at in the past. We will probably spend at least 6 hours a day on the beach and te rest by the pool.
Our question is, would we be better off changing to Aqua Live, Sun Palance, Riu Palace Las Americas or something else? Aqua and the Sun Palace would add about 400 total to our vacation package. We would clearly expect something special for that upgrade.
Also, we were trying to stay relatively close to the airport as we have arrive late and depart early.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
