Which hotel is better for All Inclusive and Honeymoon?

Which is better for a March vacation/honeymoon? Aventura Spa Palace Adults Only All-Inclusive or Sandos Riviera Select Club - Adults Only All Inclusive? Looking in the Riviera Maya area with a budget of $3k including fight (out of Philly or Newark). We'd like to avoid the younger spring break crowd

Better beach is Sandos hands down. Aventura Spa Palace has a man made lagoon rather than a true ocean front beach.
Prices at both will be higher in March because of spring break.
Both Sandos and Aventura have a "family" section so you will probably be exposed to children at some point at either of them.

Any other good hotels? I was looking at Blue Bay Grand Esmerlda. What about Iberostars?

Blue Bay does NOT have a nice beach.
The Iberostars are great resorts. The IB Paraiso has five sections with one being adults only...the IB Grand. However, if that $3K is for both of you, the Grand will probably be above your budget and the others will be filled with families. If you don't mind being around children on your honeymoon that will not be an issue.
It would help to know what else you are looking for in a resort. If you want a quiet adults only AI with a gorgeous beach look at the Catalonia Royal Tulum.
