Which of these two resorts?

Which would you recommend more for a trip with 10 and 8 year olds.

Playacar Palace

Iberostar Tucan

Moon palace appears to have a lot to do for kids, but I don't like huge resorts. (figure we can take a day trip there from Playacar if we want)

Honestly, I couldn't pick between these 2 - they're both awesome! And both will work for your kids. I would think Palace is a bit more expensive, so maybe you pick based on price. I'm also a fan of Iberostar so I would pick Iberostar - have been to the hotel right next to it and the beach there is amazing!!!

Stayed at the Tucan and loved it,2 hotels in one ,they have a Mini jungle with differing animals. With the Riu's you have about 4 hotels in one. We didn't have children with us so cannot say on that score. They share the same beach as very near each other.

We just booked the Tucan. Wild animals galore. Kids will love it.

When are you going? As I understand the shade availability is very limited at the Playacar Palace, going to be a huge issue in the summer months.

Playacar Palace does not have that large of a kids club. But they have a beautiful sand/beach. Close to 5th Ave.

With resort credits, they do offer tours which gives you more options.

Playacar Palace does not offer free shuttle to Moon Palace on a regular basis.
