Chelem for 5-6 nights in October -- Hotel or Rental?

Hi, we'd like to explore Chelem and would like advice on hotel vs. rental, restaurants, etc. We rented a villa in Chuburna last year, but thought we'd like to see what Chelem has to offer for this trip. Any advice is appreciated!

We just got back from renting in Uaymitun. I can't even imagine doing the area without a car if you want to have any sort of time table control at all. Buses were very sporadic and it's not like we were way far out - about 3 km from the flamingo observatory is all. Car rental was reasonable for us and we had it two weeks. We flew into Cancun and rented there. That gave us the flexibility to spend time in Valladolid, Santa Elena, Merida and Progreso area before heading back to Playa del Carmen for two days before flying out.
