Need help deciding which resort/island to vacation at in September

Jump to last reply

Hi. We need help narrowing down where to go for our September trip to the Caribbean/Mexico. My husband and I are leaving the kids at home for a relaxing getaway to recharge our marriage after he graduates business school. In order to accommodate our overall budget we are looking for a resort that is around $500 AI or $300 non-AI (assuming food would be around $200/day separate).

Below are some of our criterias:
1) Our main goal is to have a nice room to relax, read books and drink wine on a gorgeous balcony/patio. We prefer the room to have some space to sit not just a bed. We want to feel secluded in our own world (but still have entertainment/activities on site) and a space that immediately transports us to the Caribbean state of mind.

2) We are big foodies so some options on the resort would be good so we don't feel like we are eating the same thing every night. Room service to our room would be good too.

3) As for resort amenities - we definitely want to do the spa, maybe snorkeling and/or swim with dolphin excursion. We like the beach but are not big ocean swimmers but do enjoy floating in a lazy river/pool.

I have looked everywhere from Excellence Playa Mujeres to Renaissance Carambola St. Croix. We are over the map on trying to decide which place is the best for us.

Thanks in advance for the help.
