LtoZ Offline
My husband and I like to get away from the hectic work schedules and spend time on the beach, swimming, snorkel (have not started to dive as yet), and AC looks so inviting. Does anyone have any positive/negative things to say about Captain Morgans Vacation Beach Club and-or Costa Maya Reef Resort? Thinking of planning sometime in Nov - Dec for 2 weeks. Any suggestions?

Stay in town the first trip...Bannana Beach or AquaMarina...
You'll be glad you did. Unless you like being at one place and not exploreing. Being in town allows you to see more without the hassle of taking a water taxi back each night.

If you want luxury, try Victoria House..
just my opinion...

Much as I love BB (my home away from home), Axe, I would not consider it "in town". Looks to me like the OP's might possibly be thinking of trying to swap out timeshare weeks.

realize there are two areas of ambergris, north of cut and the rest. cm's is north of cut,and to get to town one must take water taxi, which stops at 10pm ish (is that still true gang?). i no nothing about the other place. i don't know of any place one can swim or snorkel off the beaches, just off the piers. the beach is shallow and has sea grass. that said, AC has magnificently beautiful beaches all up and down.

i prefer to be out of town, some like in town. for south of town (my pref), check out xanadu, thatch and pretty, good reputation. sooo many choices, do not limit yourself to what you see on the net, look at lodgings on this site for other good options.

I would not listen to all my advice, it depends on the individual of course! All opinions count. There is something for everyone. Captain Morgan's is beautiful to me and it is 3 miles north (that part can not be disputed, lol!)

understood, k. i just know that when i stayed at journey's end long ago, it was lovely but i felt trapped there. plus, i thought reviews were overrated for service etc. MHO. did next 3 visits south and now continue. liked to be on my own schedule. as you said, to each his own.
