You didn't say where in Mexico, but if it's got to be Mexico I would say Cancun FTW.

There are several nice resorts there, but it depends on the budget.

I stayed in riveria maya. All the resorts are roughly the same but I would suggest getting a 5 star. You'll quickly see the benefits of AC in hallways and lobbies and such forth instead of just the rooms in the 4 stars. Also food is better and you'll have better booze. But end of the day the water and sand is all the same. It's just comfort your paying more for.

Yeah sorry Cancun, have been browsing the usuals to get an idea and it seems to start from around 850 pp all inclusive with flights which sounds pretty good to me. The 5 stars are around a grand pp so don't mind paying a touch more.
It's just people I've spoken to have said just make sure you get a good hotel as it will make or break the hol so just looking for recommendations.

We went to the Grand Serenis on the Riviera, and would happily go back. The beach probably wasn't the nicest, but the pools and activities were spot on. The staff were all great, and the food was better than we'd had anywhere else on a package holiday.

All that and a nice big jetted bath to boot made it a really nice time. And we were only 1300 for the two of us for one week, in June, so it was really good value for money.

Make sure you go to Coco Bongos. It blew my mind...

We did a week at the Grand Bahia Principe hotel in Riviera Maya a few years back and it was fantastic. Highly recommended!

Great stuff will take a look.
Thinking maybe 10 days as a week with so far too travel might not cut it. Although it's only 8-9 hours flight?

Anywhere but Cancun I'd say. Cancun is Benidorm for Americans which may or may not be your thing. It wasn't ours.
