Our hands down favorite resort for kids is Club Med. You won't find many people on these boards that endorse them. Club Med Mexico is in Cancun, not Playa del Carmen. Club Med Punta Cana is our favorite. Pm me if you want details.

How old are the teens? I think there could be a difference between what would entertain a group of 13 year olds v. 18 years olds. And are they into water sports or shopping etc?

I know when I was a teen I got very restless. B/c of this I usually recommend people stay somewhere close to a "town" if the kids want to get off the resort for a change of scenery (with or without you).

whoops forgot to add....

Not sure about Club Med, but I would be careful with the kids club thing b/c in most cases I think they are geared more toward children. your teens either may be too old to qualify, or will be bored with kids much younger than themselves.

Happygirl~

What exactly are you looking for in a resort? Do the girls just want to hang at the beach all day? Are the pools important to them? Do they want to participate in activites with the entertainment staff like volleyball, olympic games on the beach, etc? Do they want a teens club with table and video games, ie, somewhere to socialize with other teens? Will they want easy access to shopping?

Also, what is important to the parents?

them-possibly disco,

Hi

We are going to Barcelo Palace with

8 girls (just 18 years) and all the parents. Some

places the disco is for 18 year olds and older.

We looked into the Iberostar properties too.

Girls are sharing rooms and have parents

adjoining. Our travel agent worked really hard

on putting this together for us and to fit budgets

for all the families. Riviera Maya very nice area

I would not do Cancun. Good luck with your plans.

All inclusive way to go.

I have been looking at Sandos Playacar as a possibililty. They do list a teen club, but I have no idea what that means in terms of activities. The beach is beautiful and it wouldn't be too far to walk or taxi into town. When are you planning to go?
