I know nobody can make my mind up but me, however I am trying to decide which of these hotels to choose, my main concern is that I have a varied age group traveling with me, a 24 yr old and 18 yr old, and a 6 and 4 year old. Where my elder two are not huge party animals , I wouldn't want them to get bored, I see from some reviews that the cayacoa is quiet, but we love the idea of its beauty and scenery, perhaps it isn't that quiet, are there things to pass the evening if you don't want to just sit and watch the hotel dancers? Is it so pretty that it is worth the quietness, and is the town suitable for our two elder children to safley just go and mosey in the local bars? Are the water sports ok in the cayacoa ?
Because I am leaning towards the cayacoa, I havent read all the reviews for the el portillo, .
