My husband and I have stayed at the Viva Maya and thought it was just meh, ok but not great. The rooms were clean enough but the food was lousy so now we stay at Riu Palaces when the two of us go and are much happier with the quality of everything. This year we want to take our kids ages 21, 16, 14 and 5 (all boys) but I have concerns. One is $$$$, I think we could get by with two rooms but it is still going to be pricy. I was looking at the other Riu's and it would be much less expensive to stay at one of them but are we going to be disappointed with it? Is there another AI that would have a two bdrm suite maybe? I think with the way these boys eat, AI is the only way to go. What do other families with lots of kids do? I'm at a loss. Oh yeah, one other thing, I know Easter is April 20 but we want to avoid springbreakers so do you think we'd be safe going April 23-29th or should we shoot for a week earlier in April?
