The Oasis has a club in it so its going to be louder plus the time you are going is all spring breakers so it will be loud. Where you stay depends on what kind of trip you want. Do you want to go somewhere crazy or more relaxing? Are you a big drinker/partier or into doing excursions/sightseeing? Will you be out all night at the clubs?

Also most hotels in Cancun will only allow guest at that hotel to enter so if you are wanting to get girls and get laid you will want to stay at one of the larger hotels that cater to spring breakers as depending on where you stay you wont be able to bring girls back from the bars unless they are staying at the same hotel you are.
well i'm only 24 so i will be definately partying and drinking it up and trying to slay some dragons. i think the reviews i've been reading, they were older couples that expected to have a quiet and romantic honeymoon but instead they got sloppy teens running around with their penis's on the hunt for some poon. haha i think oasis wouldn't be too bad. i think i'm gonna bite the bullet and go here

The Oasis is the big spring break party hotel if you are looking for the really wild place. We went for a week and went through a local travel agent and spent about $1000 for air/hotels. We did the clubs everynight and most of the bigger hotels will have a shuttle from your hotel to take you to the bars with the hotel activities staff. Most of the time it would cost about $50 which includes immediate access to the club and all you can drink. You will have to take the public bus home which is only 60 cents or take a taxi but the public transportation is fine as it will all be spring breakers. If you are a drinker I would definetly stay at an all-inclusive(we did). My wife and I did an anniversary trip last summer to Cancun and stayed at Sun Palace but its a couples resort and alot pricier. There are several big companies that specialize in Student travel so look into them online.

Cancun is not as dangerous as some make it out to be, they depend on tourism and if you stay in the Hotel zone you will be fine. Its just like anywhere if you pay attention to your surroundings you will be fine but if you get crazy drunk and act a fool expect to get messed with.

You will have a blast and the week will go by faster than you want it too.

BoardWalk Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe is pretty nice. We had a group that stayed there a couple of years ago. It's a very large gated resort, nice rooms, bars and pools all over the place. I think we payed something like 1200.00 per person (all inclusive) for 6 days 7 nights with air fare included. Good food too.

CheeseForSteeze Western Mexico (Yucatan and Quintana Roo) are fairly safe, touristy and developed. I'm not sure on resorts, we stayed at a few different ones with all inclusive and they're all pretty nice. Some might have slightly better customer service, some might have better amenities. There are basically three tiers: bargain bin which aren't that great, mid level which are probably what you want (look for age of construction) and then the ones for honey-mooners and people with loads of dough.

Keep in mind that in 2005, a huge hurricane came through and wiped out a lot of stuff and the rebuilt most of it in '06. So if you can find something like that, it should be fairly new and nice.

forestfalcon Tulum is pretty sweet. Nice beaches, nice water (not a bunch of crap to step on in the ocean), a really nice, pretty quiet place if you're trying to work off a hangover. It's mostly eco resorts, so if you're a fan of a/c, not a place you'd find super comfortable. I liked it, but I've also had to stay in bad biology lab stations in the middle of the rainforest...

Tulum and Xel Ha were also really cool, but again, these are not really party places, they're ancient Mayan architecture and basically an aquatic eco-park/zoo.

what about the resorts? which ones do you suggest? if you've stayed overnight there
