We are a family of 4 with two older teen boys (16 and 19). We have been to Mexico at least 9 times and stayed at various resorts. Our favorite, hands down was Grand Velas Riviera Maya (we also loved Villa La Estancia in Nuevo Vallarta!). However, when we went it was overrun with families with small children who took over the pool and the chairs by 7 Am and it was a bummer. My sons are very mellow and when we vacation as a family we all like to sit by a nice pool, have great rooms, food and service, read and relax I have not been to Playacar in a few years but when they were small we stayed at the Iberostar Tucan and we loved the area for long walks on the beach.Now that my younger one is over 16 we are looking at resorts that do not allow young children but arent necessarily places where the boys will feel out of place. I have been looking into these two resorts and thought I would take y questions to the experts on this board. We dont want a crazy atmosphere, but we don't want it to feel like we are surrounded by honeymooners, we are big foodies, like a good gym, nice linens and attentive service. Thank you!
