Ocean Coral or Marina El Cid or dreams

We are looking for a resort in November, it will be for my husband, myself our 7 and 9 year old. I would like a resort we can relax at with lots of activities for the kids. Marina el CID is quite a bit less in price. I would appreciate any information about the activities for kids as well as your opinion on which resort would be best.

I have not been to Dreams but have been to OCT and El Cid with children. We had a blast at both and I would return to both. My kids would tell you El Cid but they would return to both. I consider them very similar from a food, service and room perspective. We did like the layout and activities better at El Cid. We had one bedroom suites at both which was perfect for a family of 4. I think you could be very happy at either.

We just returned from El Cids, I have 3 girls ages 4-10, they all loved the main pool area, the activities crew were awesome and my two youngest really liked the kids club.

However the beach isn't great, sand is fine but lots of seaweed and rocks in the water so the girls wouldn't go too far out.

Also the food isn't amazing, but if you don't mind that it is a nice resort with good service.

Just returned from Dreams with a 10yr old. They have lots activities for kids during the day in the pool area and usually had a movie on the beach or some type of entertainment at night like a magic or comedy show. My son loved it all. The food was excellent for adults as well as kids. The service at this resort is top notch. Best resort we have ever been to. Would definitely recommend Dreams to anyone.
