I have been contemplating booking either Sandals Hicacos or Secrets Excellence Riviera Cancun for a while. Has anybody been to both that can help me choose one? I know that SERC is a *true* 5 star resort, no booking specialty restaurants, close to Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Sandals (at least this one), is a little less expensive, and on a very nice beach from what I can understand. The rooms, from what i understand, are comparable.
Thanks for your help!!
