Lol, I love this post.
I was looking at Mexico for October, but I've now decided, money permitting, we're going to Peru.
Anyway back to Mexico, I wanted to go to the Mayan archeological sites, which is just west of Cancun & then south to the beach, can't remember the name of the resort, now, but more archeological site, I know that's not helpful at all, but I feel better for sharing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've downloaded a few travel apps lately from triposo, you can get alsorts or areas, including Mexico & they are free

I have most of those, and have been browsing trip advisor, it hasn't helped much lol. We're definitely more chill out (me) or history (Kev) type people as opposed to clubbing folk, so was unsure of Cancun, but that could just be reputation rather than reality (spring breakers etc) I think from my research so far, Tulum and Rivera Maya are quite interesting with ruins etc
Visiting the Eco park sounds really interesting and is easily accessible from Rivera Maya on day trips, unsure from Cancun although I did see a pirate evening thingy from Cancun (can't remember the name, but along the lines of a themed dinner, location being a pirate ship) that looked fun, which I don't know if you could get from Rivera Maya or not but it's not really a good idea to base a 2 week holiday on one evening lol xx
Tulum was the other place I was looking at!!!!
I went to Mexico for my Honeymoon, we stayed at the moon palace resort which is just slightly south of Cancun.
This is a great hotel and ideally located if you want to visit the riviera maya and Cancun/Isle Mirables (spelling) just off Cancun as is central to both.
A choice of about 12 al-a-carte restaurants & a golf course, only downfall was no crystal clear blue sea like up in Cancun.
Thanks guys, just what i wanted, ideas and names! There are just sooo many! xx
Hey. I stayed at the Grand Palladium in Akumal in December 2012x Weather was stunning the whole time. Hotel was brilliant - but it's massive! Easily 40 mins to walk from 1 end to the other. Lots of food options. Entertainment was a bit Butlins-eque but I actually thought it was fun!
The ruins at Tulum that Michelle mentioned are a 15 min Collectivo ride away - costs 35 pesos each way. The beach at Tulum is amazing too.
Everyone has stayed somewhere different!
Is there something I should look for it to have? Maybe that will help narrow it down?
I do think Maya would probably be the best as sort of in the middle of Cancun and Tulum and you can do equal exploring and relaxing as there seems to be a lot to do there x
I always look for free wifi in all area & breakfast, a bar & pool are a bonus.
what do you want out of a hotel? Do you like larger or small hotels?
I'd probably look at Playacar if you want to be in the middle. It's about an hour to Cancun & Tulum in each direction. There is a big complex of Riu hotels in Playacar - you can use all the facilities in each I think. Also, being All inclusive is less of a requirement if you're in Playacar as there are loads of places to eat & drink
Whatever you do, go to Coco Bongo for a night!!!
Will probably be all inclusive as it means can save spending money for days out free wifi would be a bonus, when we went to Cuba there was none just a little room with two ancient computers in and it was $11 for 5 minutes...it was so slow it took that long just to log into my email, let alone read any lol
drinks to be included, pref cocktails because We only really drink on holiday so tend to make the most of it
thanks guys xx
