best beach and family hotel

WE are looking for a hotel with AI and a great beach Our kids are 9 and 6. What places still have a beach that hasn't been washed away?

I'm thinking either the Iberostar Maya, Lindo, Paraiso Beach or Del Mar or one of the Barcelo's. The Iberostar Paraiso comlex has a big beautiful beach. The water is rough sometimes and there are some rocks in the water that you can see and avoid. The complex is only 25 minutes from the cancun airport. The Bareclo has calmer water and snorkeling from the beach. The Barcelo Maya Palace has coral and rocks on the beach. The other Barcelos have better beaches. This resort is much farther from the airport. It probably takes an hour and a half to get to from the airport (south of Playa Del Carmen). Both are great family roesorts and get good reviews. The Iberostar has more of a jungley feel (especially the PB and Del Mar and has a lot of wildlife on it) Barcelo--not so much.

We have stayed at the Barcelo Colonial, the Iberostar Beach and my daughter was married at the Grand Pallidum, all of them are great family resorts with nice beaches and good food.
