Posted this on the Playa Del Carmen but was suggested that I post in the Cancun side as well
Having hard time deciding between the two resorts for honeymoon. Would appreciate any thoughts on them...
Both seem like excellent resorts, the royal has a nice beach whereas reviews seem to indicate that Paradisus doesn't really have a beach worth noting... Not sure if anyone who's been the Paradisus saw this as a major downfall? I know some people mentioned there are public beaches next to the resort but are these good?
I like that Paradisus is in PDC but not sure if any tour operators do direct pick up and drop offs through this resort or if it can even be arranged through the resort... Couldn't find info on this in my search... I know the royal cancun is farther from PDC but seems to have tour operators on sight that take people out on excursions.. Only downside is it takes longer to get to places such as xcaret, tulum, etc.
My fiancé and I are thinking 7 nights in June and wanted to check out PDC or if in the royal a comparable town? The xcaret, tulum or chitzen itza, and also just rest and relax on the beach or pool. Also noted that people say just take a cab to town... I know it's easy enough to arrange one from the resort, but is it safe to grab any can from town back to resort?
Is it better to book tours before heading over to Mexico or just while there?
Neither of us have done much traveling so any info helps!
Thanks in advance everyone!
