Recommendations for family with Tweens ?

We went to Club Med in Punta Cana last year and my. 8&12 yr olds loved (Loved) it, but this year the promotions are not the same and price would be 3X so we are looking at other options.

Many hotels have little kids clubs, but my kids liked being able to do more mature things like the archery, skateboarding, trapeze, theater, and sailing. I know that the activities are going to vary, but does anyone have any suggestions for other properties with great tween/teen programs?

Welcome to the forum John A:

In Punta Cana, we found that Club Med and the Grand Palladium complex have the two best kid/tween/teen activity programs.

I still like Ocean Blue and Sands for older kids. My then 16 yr old daughter loved the climbing wall at the beach, the bowling alley/ pool room, and upstairs game room. She spent much time at Mike's coffee house with their delectable selections and frozen drinks :) She never had any complaints about the food, she was into the pizza all day long. There's an American Diner there that had curly fries and burgers like back home, lol. She had a great vacation as we did. The WiFi was also to her liking so she could send pics home all the time too!

We've stayed with our son (now 10) at the Iberostar Bavaro, Dreams Palm Beach and Melia Caribe -all great. We've also been to the Palladium (without our son) and liked it - it gets great reviews for families, but Iberostar was our overall favourite.
