Best Resort for Mixed Group (ages 11-60)?

Looking for your recommendations! We are planning a trip in spring 2014 and have a group of mainly couples, however two of us have kids (girls - 17 & 11). We have traveled to Moon Palace Resort in Cancun and enjoyed our time there so looking for something comparable.

Our preferences are

1) larger resort wth activities and things to do onsite

2) swim-up bar(s) and great restaurants

3) great beach

4) good service, clean rooms

5) reasonable distance from airport to maximize fun & sun time

We have some golfers, we have some spa-goers, but not a deal-breaker.

Thanks for your help!

On the site 13 restos, 14 bars, 4 pools and a white sandy beach.

Also at the Palladium you have a sport's complex with tennis, badminton, Ping pong, mini golf, archery , basket and more :))

Definately include the Grand Palladium complex during your trip research! It is 20 or so minutes from the airport and features a variety of accomodations to fit every budget along with superior food & beverage quality offering unlimited, no reservation required a la carte dining. Great beach location. And one of the best kid & teen activity programs in the area as well as an on-site spa and nearby golf.

Happy Travels whichever you choose!

Barcelo Bavaro Palace de Luxe, they have the best beach, fairly new, activities for all ages and they have their own 18 holes golf course on site, so you can make a package deal with the golfing, too, without any travel for golf needed.

have fun
