Live Aqua vs. The Royal Cancun vs. Le Blanc

I have narrowed down my choice for our anniversary trip to Cancun to these 3 resorts....please help me decide which one to go to! I know LeBlanc is the most expensive, is it really worth the extra money? We just want romance, luxury, pampering and a beautiful beach to lounge on and a nice pool scene. We are in our 30's but not big partiers.

I've been to both the Royal and Le Blanc. Loved the Royal, but it could not compare to Le Blanc. Its worth the extra money especially if you are celebrating an aniversary. Consider booking with a member for a better rate. I think they are still offering 1500 resort credits to be used at the spa if you book through an elite member.

Yes, the $1500 to use entirely in the spa is a very nice perk. I've booked 2 couples on it. LeBlancs definitely the place to go for that very special trip - honeymoon, anniversary.

Been to LB 4x and LA twice. LB wins in every category except rooms in the higher categories.

LB has much better food with more options, consistently excellent service in all areas of the resort, top shelf liquor in all venues and a nice included wine list as well as evening entertainment.

Both have nice beaches and good locations, nice spas and good fitness centers, though LB wins there as well.

We visited the Royal once for a tour and did not care for the vibe which was just too busy for our tastes so we have never stayed there.

LA was nice and we enjoyed it but it does not compare to LB.

Ok, if we go to Cancun, I think we will go with Le Blanc. Our other consideration is Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica. Any thoughts on choosing between these two properties?

I have stayed at most of the Sandals resorts but not yet Whitehouse. The location, which is remote to everything, is not appealing to me and when we go to JA we just prefer Negril for the beach and water. Couples is our preference for JA but they are not luxury resorts.

SWH has more inclusions in terms of water sports, activities than LB or LA. You pay a lot more for butler service and IMO at other Sandals resorts since the butler and concierge levels were instituted, butler guests enjoy things others do not: dinner reservations, reserved chairs at beach and pool, room service. At LB, all guests are equal.

How do you book thru an elite member? I've read other posts that suggest to look on ebay but it's confusing and i'm concerned some of the ads maybe scams? Any advice? THX
