Dear Fellow Travelers:
We are going to get away alone w/o our kids for 4-5 days so leaning towards an AI, adults only resort. We've grown up just a little (but not too much) from the Hedonisms, Breezes-types reports. From all the forums, leaning towards Secrets Excellence or Secrets Capri, possibly the Ritz (has an AI plan) near MoBay.
Since my husband is the golf addict, have also considered Casa de Campo in La Ramona. It seems from the forums many prefer the Mexico Riveria over DR for a variety of reasons, primarily service. Have been to Cancun, Cozumel, Ixtapa many years ago, also Tulum, long before these areas were developed. Shopping isn't of interest, I've been to Tulum, my husband hasn't, just going for R&R.
Should we consider the less expensive resorts? Seems rates at others are a lot less than the Secrets resorts. Do you really get what you pay for?
Any great differences between Secrets Capri and Secrets Excellence? SE is sold out on many dates.
Taxi fares from Cancun airport to the resorts?
Are sand fleas/no see ums an issue?
I recall the water in this area isn't the beautiful blue as in many other Caribbean areas, but not a deciding factor as long as a good beach.
Thanks all for your input!
