Help deciding AI - GS, GP, GBP

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.

Thanks

I have been to all 3,GBP Akumal twice, I vote for GBP Akumal. Rooms 47 if i remember correctly would be perfect, near everything.

Thanks

So there is likely to be lots of teens there and the snorkeling is good?

Snorkeling is protected and not bad

Palladium / Barcelo is better

GS is even better

Akumal is best

It seems like we can expect to have red flags days in March. I would rather a resort with o.k. snorkeling but o.k. during red flag vs not being able to snorkel on red flag days. Can you snorkel at GS on red flag days?

Appreciate all the input
