Family/Toddler friendly resort

Looking for a family friendly resort, specifically for an 18 month old and his parents. I've heard Hard Rock can actually be a good option. Anyone have a good experience with Hard Rock or any others?

Why leave balmy temps in Toronto. Brrrr.

Just came back from our 3rd trip to Iberostar Bavaro.

All 3 trips the grandson and kids came with us.

7mths, 18mths and this last trip 30mths.

Daughter loves the resort, the staff and the facilities for the little guy.

Each trip he enjoys more and we enjoy watching him explore the kids pool and the waves.

Staff loves little ones and are more than willing to assist in anything you require.

Have a look at it and any questions just ask and grampa will try to help :)

I did send you a message as well...

I have found Dreams Punta Cana to be good for families with children. They also have rooms for families of 5 which can be difficult to find.

They have an excellent kids club with pirate ship slide.

Hard Rock is much larger. We thought about it this year but did not want that large a resort. I would say Hard rock for a little more active vacation with more variety of entertainment and Dreams for a quieter vacation in a more cozy type family atmosphere.

I've also been to Iberostar Bavaro and agree with gsdsky - we loved it! We also really enjoyed the Dreams Palm Beach - it is closer to the airport and the water is calmer than at Dreams Punta Cana. Another resort we've been to that we liked and would recommend is the Melia Caribe Tropical. I don't know too much about the Hard Rock, other than the water is more rough there which could be difficult for a little one.
