OMG! If only I was back at Sin Duda this instant! My husband and I wanted to go some place relaxing and romantic for our honeymoon. We wanted some place that was beautiful, serene, warm, and adventurous, but also AFORDABLE! After reading the reviews on this site we chose Sin Duda, and we could have not picked a better spot! We were a little worried about driving there from Cancun, but it was remarkably easy! There were even a plethera of cenotes and parks to explore right off the highway...which I would highly recommend doing if you have the time. Dave and Les (the new owners) were so welcoming. They greeted us with "Margo"-ritas (named after the original owner, Margo), and a friendly easy-going vibe. We stayed in the "Ocean" room, which was "muy bonita" to say the very least! The view of the ocean looked like a painting, and we had our own private balcony to lay around in. I read some complaints on this site about cieling fans being on timers, but there was a floor fan in the room as well, so we were always very comfortable (not to mention the constant ocean breeze). The beach itself was like a magical garden (I know that sounds cheesy, but there's no other way to describe it) with all these private nooks and crannies and palapas...and very private. The snorkeling just off the beach was just as good as any diving I've done...a huge moray eel lives in a reef head just off shore! Sometimes we joined the other guests with Les and Dave for happy-hour, which was always fun, and sometimes we had quiet evenings to ourselves. It was really an amazing experience for us, and we both can't wait to come back!
