I appreciate all the response we got about lodging. I took your advise and did the "search" thing about Costa Maya. This gave me mixed feelings. I have an uncertainty about the quality of stay there.
Several items are causing concern:
1. The distant to town without reliable transportation. We tend to stay at remote places so this might not be too bad. Sounds like the "golf cart" routine will be a must. Or is the water taxi sufficient. Need advice on best deals there.
2. Read that the restaurant sucked. Is that true? Wher is the next best one? Also there was a lack of cooking utensils. My wife and I are good cooks but we don't necessarily want to cook all the time. "it's vacation, mon!"
3. Also the absence of staff at nite and the "rape" thing. Several stated that the place was run down.
Anyway, I may be "sniveling" and should perhaps shutup and enjoying, BUT.... I would appreciate anybody input on this place. If it's too bad I may try to cancel out of the reservation and book elswhere. We are staying at the Coral Bay Villas for the first five days
