How has everyone booked? Flights and hotel separate or bundled through a travel site?

Just read on a hotel review that Hotel Hacienda Morelos now has coffee makers in the rooms.
Refrigerators are available for $10 extra per day.

Yea for you BB and I am looking forward to seeing you again.
 
I still haven't booked flights but I know I'll be there at least 5/1 to 5/11 but perhaps a few days before or after.

BeachBilly, just a reminder for you to make sure you inform your bank of the dates you will be in Mexico so that you can use your debit card to get pesos. Good news is that there are now 2 ATMs in the new Chedraui Selecto right across the street from Hacienda Morelos.

Wag more....bark less.

Badger, Is US money readily accepted? I don't even use my debit card at the gas pumps here. And I freaked out when I mistakingly used my debit card to book my trip. I don't use it on the computer either. Can you say paranoid? I always notify my CC companies when I go to Mexico. 
 
If you pesos are a must, I'll see if I can get some here.

BB, yes, every place that you will be spending money at like restaurants and the Chedraui will take U.S. dollars and give you change in pesos.  Even the taxi drivers and most street vendors will accept them. The only thing is you will not receive a great exchange rate, but since you will only be there for a few days, it shouldn't be too bad. Also, at the end of your trip if you have any extra pesos I will gladly buy them from you with dollars. 
(and give you a pretty good rate.)

I'm sure you know this BB, but be careful to bring only $$ that are in good condition. Many people there will not accept bills that are torn or in poor condition.

Thanks for the reminder Badger. I had forgotten. A collectivo driver refused a bill of ours once. I didn't think it was that bad

I thought I would post a list of some of our favorite restaurants, if you check them out on the Trip Advisor Puerto Morelos Restaurants section you can see some great food porn photos.
 
 
Our favorite "upscale" restaurants...
 
Taninos, Punta Corcho, El Campanario, and La Sirena. Even though I consider them upscale, you can get a great meal at any of them for about $10-15 U.S.
 
 
Medium Priced Places
 
Our all around favorite, with what we think is the best seafood  and margaritas in town, El Pesquero, be sure to tell them Pablo sent you, although Pablo (me) will probably already be there.
Note: opens at 1 pm, kitchen closes at 8.
 
Best burger in town, a relatively new place, Burger Underground, great selection of brew pub style burgers at a good price.
 
Our favorite pizza and pasta place is My Little Italy, owned by a very, very nice gentleman from.....Italy.
 
A very good breakfast can be had at El Nicho, known for their variety of Eggs Benedict.
 
 
Cheap Eats
 
The two best cheap eats places on the port side, Caribelos and Tuch Tlan can't be beat for authentic breakfast and lunch. At Caribelos you can get a shrimp omelet for about the equivalent of $3, huevos rancheros are even less than that, tortas for lunch for about $2 . Not quite as large a selection at Tuch Tlan, but great food and similar prices. Their serving of Chilaquiles is huge!
 
We can also recommend several places in La Colonia, but better to ask me in person so I can give directions.
 
Also, most evenings in the center of the town square there is a small stand selling marquesitas and churros, traditional Mexican dessert type treats, definitely try them!
 
One more thing, on some days you may see/hear the fruit and vegetable trucks that drive slowly around town announcing in a droning loudspeaker voice what wares they are selling that day, definitely check them out.  We can usually buy a pint bag of sweet, fresh orange juice for about the equivalent of 50 cents and all of their fruits and veggies are "just picked" fresh and also cheap!

Starting to look good that I will be able to join you guys for Adult Spring Break.
I'm thinking of arriving in CUN on Tue. 4/30 and spending several days to a week in Po Mo at Hotel Hacienda Morelos before going down to Akumal and staying with my buddy Steve in his new condo in HMB for the second week.
Steve won't do Po Mo so I'd be looking to share a room with someone if anyone else is going solo.
Matter of fact, I spend very little time in my room so would even consider sleeping on a couch or cot if anyone wants to cut the cost of their room rate.
Peace, Bimmy

Hey Bimmy, it'll be great to see you again! Sorry, but right now I can't think of anyone who is travelling solo for the trip, but if there are I hope they see this.

Excuse me?  
I reserved a king room. Would that be appropriate ? Do the rooms even have a couch? What ever would help or needs to be done.

BBilly, I am SHOCKED, SHOCKED I TELL YA!!
Actually, Bimmy arrives a couple of days before you do, so I didn't think that would work and I would never be so presumptuous to suggest that you share a room with someone you don't know. Although, Bimmy is a pretty good guy...sort of,...kind of.
Also, there are no couches in the rooms.

Geez Badger, thought we were buds!!!  LOL
I can change my dates, nothing in stone yet.
I'll be talking to Claire on FB so you peeps with your minds in the gutter can't see our conversations. LOL
Peace, Bimmy

Here's a cool site of Po Mo.
http://www.puertomorelos.com/en/accommodation/hotels/hacienda-morelos   
 Scroll down to the map and zoom in on restaurants and other attractions and click on the name for pics, or you can drag the little yellow person icon and release it on the street for street view. You can then navigate around town by advancing along the street and stopping and doing a 360 at desired stops.
I spent several hours on this site refamiliarizing myself with Po Mo. Fun time
 
Badger, I LOVE pastor tacos! I'm looking at Taqueria Mike's and they look awesome. Your thoughts please?https://www.google.com/ma...4d-86.8764023?hl=en-US
 
 
Peace, Bimmy
 
Edit.....Sorry....Click on restaurant's name....when box pops up click on (blue) google maps...then click on pic on left for more pics and info.

Thanks, Bimmy! I recognize many of those streets on the North side of the town square. Heard that Cancun Billy's is closed....
 
Badger, you can officially add Sweetie and I to the Attendee List: 4/30 - 5/8, HM. Gracias!
Can't wait!!
