Two 50-something women looking for R&R, great beach, massages, and general vegging out

We leave the hubbies home and meet once a year. Any suggestions as to a Mexican resort where we can find all this? Can be anywhere in Mexico.

Yes the Spa Palace near Playa del Carmen, great resort, great service, and great food, everything you are looking for, it is the perfect resort.

PDC is a good suggestion. Also Akumal.

The Aventura/Spa Palace is in Puerto Aventuras (about 15 minutes south of Playa Del Carmen) and has next to nothing for a beach. The beach at the Spa Palace is a man made lagoon blasted out of rock. The Royal Hideway in PDC is very nick but a bit pricey . The Riu Palace in PDC is a good option. They do have massages there and they have good service, good food and a GREAT beach. The beach at the Riu Palace is one of the best in Playa Del Carmen. In Cancun the Fiesta Americana Coral Beach has a spa and again is a bit pricey. Some good room rates can be had but the food and beverage is very, very expensive.Good luck !! Peace !

Puerto Vallarta?? Is great fun. I'm 48 single female and have gone tons of times (alone, with friends, relatives, in a small group). Maybe stay in Old Town? Lots of shopping, restaurants, bars, massage available (even if not thru your hotel or a spa there's lots of places). Or stay down at Camino Real or Mismaloya resorts a bit south of town for more services and ammenities on the property?

OK I confess the ocean and beaches are not as nice on the Pacific as on the Caribbean side... but I LOVE this town anyway!
