Resort with no seaweed problem

Does anyone know of a resort without the dreaded seaweed problem that that has been occurring in the Playa del Carmen or surrounding area?

Cozumel is seaweed free because of it's west facing beaches.

The seaweed impact is the entire coastline. As stated above Cozumel facing West is very clean.

I have the same question. I haven't been there for 2 years because of the seaweed but planning a trip this year. Looking at tripadvisor reviews for some reason Barcelo reviews don't mention seaweed as problematic as the other hotel reviews (I've looked at Dreams in Puerto Aventuras, Grand Palladium, really most towns in that area). I don't know if it's a coincidence that people just don't concentrate on seaweed reviewing Barcelo or if it could possibly be true that Barcelo (since it's got that little "nook" there) has just a bit less seaweed. Anyone can comment on that?
