AI with great food??

We are planning a trip next year with another couple to this part of Mexico in May. The other couple are more into food than we are so I am looking for an adult only resort in this area that has great food. Snorkelling would be nice as well. In the past we have done several of the Rius (food was good but they are not adult only), the old Aventura Palace (but is no more), Akumal Beach Resort (the food was not great but the snorkelling was) and last year as a big family thing we went to one of the Palladiums and the food was not great there. So any advice appreciated. Thanks

Gran Bahia Principe Sian Kaan is adult only and gets regular rave review for the food quality, but there has been some recent less-than-perfect reviews.

Royal Hideaway is known for its excellent food. We have stayed there 3 times and highly recommend it. The beach and service are also outstanding. It is a sophisticated, quieter AO that does not appeal to the party crowd.

The AI in this area reknown for fabulous food is the Grand Velas - but it is not a cheap option.

If you are looking for something that's a step up food-wise from ABR and Palladiums, check out Secrets, Excellences, El Dorados and the Valentin Imperial Maya - all these properties are adult only.

nother option would be the Barcelo Maya Palace - and there's onsite snorkelling. The downside - it's not adult only and there's also a dolphin swim on the BMP complex property.

Is non-AI an option? Lots of good restaurants in the area with great food.
