Put this is Cancun forum but realized this is more accurate forum:
Planning a trip that is likely to include Excellence Riviera Cancun. We like a true oceanfront room, but that is a huge upgrade at this resort that we're not willing to pay on this trip. The ocean view room is $80 per night more than the basic pool view room. I'd like perspectives on whether to seriously consider this. I'd like it to be a decent ocean view if I'm paying for it. Please provide specifics on the quality of this view (links to pics taken from an ocean view room would be awesome).
I'd also like a room that is quiet 11pm-8am. If these room types vary in that regard, please comment.
Also, am I correct that if you don't get a swim-up room then you're not on the ground floor? We definitely don't want ground floor.
