Priorities (in order)
1. Lot's of older teens (almost 18) around to meet. Wont go to "club"
2. O.K. to Good snorkeling - even if red flag days (going March)
3. Close to Akumal beach to take taxi to snorkel.
3. Pool is next to beach or very close/can see water from pool
4. Less walking from pool to beach to lunch areas
5. Easy for 12 year old to go back to room by herself. Room close to pool/beach
6. Good food
7. Nice grounds
We usually stay at smaller resorts. I realiize these are all very large resorts but not clear if some are easy to get around for all of us and kids.
