Luxury, non-AI resort with teens?

We're looking for a luxury, non-AI resort in Playa del Carmen, June 20-26, 2014, with our 14 and 16 year old kids, preferably oceanfront. It seems that everything I find that is recommended for teens is AI, and we're just not interested in staying and eating on-property the entire time (unless convinced otherwise). We usually default to Ritz-Carlton resorts when out of our comfort zone, but we don't think Cancun is the place for us. We love snorkeling, horseback riding, all water sports, and really good food. Any advice is much appreciated! Thanks!

Try a condo that has a beach club w/food & drink? The condohotels properties, especially El Taj, are very nice and well run.

IMO a teen would be very out of place at Maroma Resort. This is a small, quiet and romantic resort and appeals mostly to couples.

Rosewood Mayakoba would fit that description.
