Hello all, we are a young couple planning a honeymoon in Mexico in January and have a couple of all inclusive resorts in mind so far, but we would like to get some feedback from people with first-hand experience with some of the resorts in Cancun and/or Riviera Maya, as well as any other parts of Mexico such as Cabo, Puerto Vallarta, Tulum, etc. We would like to stay under $5,000 for everything (flights + resort + miscellaneous activities).

Our interests include: relaxing (of course, pool side, jacuzzi, tanning, beach), swimming in the ocean, snorkeling, sports, sightseeing, good food, and romantic vibes!

Here are the hotels/resorts we have in mind:

Hyatt Zilara Cancun

Excellence Playa Mujeres

Finest Playa Mujeres

Unico 20 87 Riviera Maya

Any experience or information is appreciated, we would just like to know which (if any) of these resorts work with our interests. Other resort ideas are encouraged!

    My parents went to Excellence Riviera Cancun and were blown away. Playa Mujeres is supposed to be their nicest resort. Finest is owned by the same company. The beaches in playa mujeres are supposed to be phenomenal too. I don't know anything about the other 2, but you definitely can't go wrong with Excellence or Finest.

    FYI, I don't believe Finest is adults only, so keep that in mind as well if you don't want any kids around on your honeymoon. Excellence is adults only.

    OMG girl!!! Congratulations first of all!!! I wanted to get married at Hyatt Zilara because it looks so amazing and it’s adults only! But I had to change it because of a couple of children in our family.. so I looked into Hyatt Ziva!!! So beautiful too but it was going to be out of my budget with the 55 guests.. I’m getting married at Finest Playa Mujeres next year and I can’t wait!! Their reviews are amazing! Their pics are so beautiful!!! We are staying at their Excellence rooms for the adult section only with a swim up pool!!! We are using a travel agent and we are paying $3800 for a one week stay with that room and airport transfers..

    We stayed at Secrets Maroma Beach, which was not on your list, but we also looked at some of the ones on your list before choosing Secrets. IT WAS AMAZING!!!!!! We paid 4,400 for 7 days with travel and transfers. I'm not sure where you're traveling from, which could change the airplane ticket prices, but I highly recommend Secrets!

    I have stayed at the Hyatt Zilara. It is beautiful. I had a great experience there. Best part is that ALL rooms are oceanview.
