I don't see any resort here accomodating a family of 9 in one room or suite. Unless you are willing to get 2 or 3 rooms I'd look into renting a condo or villa instead.

Exactly - I'm sure we would have to rent several rooms. I'm just curious what resorts will allow this and which ones are kid friendly, plus we don't want to break the bank.

Hi again you may have to get 2 rooms 1 adult in each and 3 kids per room depending on the age of the kids.Also would check with a agent to find out more info he will match any price you find on line.

I've stayed at 4 different Iberostars and can honestly say their kids club was awesome. They have activities for all ages. Check out the Iberostar Maya, Lindo, Paraiso Beach, and Del Mar. This complex is larger and has lots to do. They even have a teen disco. Very clean resorts with excellent service. They are all beautifully landscaped. I have some videos and photos from the Del Mar. Just click on my name if you'd like to see them. Read the recent reviews and look at the travelers photos of any resort you are considering. Good luck. It sounds like a great time (I have 6 children but they are all grown now).
