Hi, I am considering giving up the Oasis Tulum (not Grand) for one of the following.
Grand Sunset Princess (&350 more) no snorkeling but maybe a chance at Puerto Morelos snorkel tour (to windy in March?)
Riu Yucatan ($150 more) We havent' stayed in Playa before. No snorkelling could we do cozumel? Would that week be an absolute zoo anywhere near Playa given spring break and all.
Riu Tequila ($50 cheaper than OT) no snorkelling same as above but nicer pool area but the long walk to the beach. It may be quieter then though.
I love snorkeling from the beach but I just can't get past the current troubles Oasis Tulum is having. It's mostly the lack of washrooms, beach beds, water and the chance we may end up in Cancun. I have looked at the Grand Sirenis (been there) Barcelo (been there 3 times) and Palladium (way to pricey) The Bahia Principe( sorry I got issues with penned dolphins). All of these are far more pricey like 6 or 7 hundred more.
Has anyone been to any of these that could offer an opinion....am I making a terrible mistake....lol have you all got a crystal ball....
