Help Choose Family All Inclusive

Family of 4 (39, 35, 4 and 1) looking for a great family all inclusive in May. Right now, funjet is offering amazing family packages to all of the Iberostars, Gran Bahias, and Barcelo. For example, we can stay 7 nights at the Gran Bahia Akumal for $2,053, Barcelo Maya Beach for $2,104, Iberostar Tucan for $1,983, and the Iberostar Beach for $2,085. All are rated highly and all withing $150 bucks or so, so the price is a wash. Here is what we are looking for:

1. Stroller friends (1 and 4 year old)

2. Usable beach, preferably with snorkeling

3. Good kid's club for the 4 year old and optional baby sitting (for $$ of course) for the 1 year old

4. Nice family friendly shows in the evening

5. Do NOT want a resort where you are assigned a time for the buffet dinner. This drives us crazy! If we eat at the buffet, we want to do it whenever we want, not at an assigned seating time!

6. Looking to dive, so close by sites would be great

Also, any other comparisons relative to a young family would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there I can tell you that the Barcelo maya beach and the Iberostar beach do no have A/C buffets.The Bahia and the Tucan should be but Iam not sure about then.See how much extra it would cost to stay at the Barcelo Tropical/colonial,This resort has the beach you want with the snorkling, great shows and A/C buffets.

Also another one to check out is the Grand Pallidum Kantenh/colonial/white sands it also has a great beach/snorkling and does have A/C buffets.

Check prices with Apple vacations also.

Hope this has helped some.
