TA suggested GBP Coba, Akumal, Barcelo Colonial and Secrets Capri ( this one at top of budget). We also look at GBP Tulum and Grand Palladium or Grand Princess.
Very important is nice beach with comfortable chairs and shade, nice sand to get into water ( few rocks ok, but no need for water shoes or search for easy trail in); quiet room and nice balcony; possibility to eat breakfast outside . We enjoyed royal Club at Occidental in Cozumel ( except for tiny balconies). All info and advice or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Ps DH smokes cigar.
