I'm looking for a resort for spring break with kids (7 & 10 ) -- I'm having such a hard time. This is our first time bringing our kids-- I wanted to find a resort not totally full of kids but something with a mix for kids and adults. We wanted a big pool with shade available , good food with variety, not a super huge resort. I like the looks of El Cid but when I look at the pictures- where is the shade by the pool? I see tables with umbrellas (seems weird to have tables) and maybe a few others around the pool - can anyone comment on that? How about Ocean Coral & Turquesa with kids? Looks nice other than the beach.
Other resorts in our range our the Riu's in Cancun - we have been to many but not sure how many other kids will be around. I fell in love with Fiesta Americana Condesa in Cancun but found out the buffet is really small and variety is limited which would be deal breaker. Barcelo complex is on the list -- a little far south.
