I'd check out the Ambiance Villas. If you are into luxury though, don't bother. They are very basic/simple rooms, but the beach makes up for it! Excellent for kids. Almost like a lake. So calm that the only waves are when a jet ski (very rarely) or a boat at a distance goes by. I'd float around in my floatie and it is swallow for a long ways out. The pool was nice too (we really didn't use it to take advantage of the beach) and there is a small playground equipment on site and a kiddie pool as well. We loved the food. It is an AI option. We chose not to do the AI. We stayed their for the first time this past February and just booked again for February '08. Check out the reviews and pictures on this site (scroll down and to the left). We did not have our son with us on our trip, but commented many times how he would have loved the water and beach area and how great it would be for children.

Here are a few resorts I recommend with good kid's programs/clubs and excellent pools:

Hilton Golf & Spa Resort-This is a European Plan resort


Le Meridien-this is also an EP resort, but higher end


Club Med


Crown Paradise Club


Dreams Resort-this resort has a dolphin experience on premises


Great Parnassus


Rather than go on and on with suggestions, I recommend you investigate these resorts and narrow down your decision with what other people suggest. There are a lot of great resorts for families but don't worry whatever you do about making the right choice. The people who post here are real Cancun experts and will definitely point you in the right direction.

Have fun planning your vacatioin,
