Dear TA family-
I am planning a SB trip w/ my family (me, dh, and three 15 year old boys). I originally was looking at one of the Barcelo properties, but after reading a lot of input regarding wild spring breakers...have narrowed it down to either an Iberostar (Del Mar or sister property), or Grand Palladium (Kantenah or sister property). Here are my questions:
1)Is one clearly a better choice over the other for minimizing a "girls gone wild" spring break experience? It seems like both properties discourage it...but is one a clear winner in this category? We are fairly laid back, and the occassional run in with a group of drunk teens will not ruin our vacation, but I also would prefer to limit this.
2) Do you have access to motorized beach activites (I realize it will cost extra) at both places? Things like parasailing and banana boats really appeal to my boys.
3) As far as organized things for the younger teens..what are your experiences?
I realize that many would just choose to go at another time of year, but unfortunately-this is the time of the year we can go! iberostar would cost more due to their occupancy restrictions during SB (and their cancellation policy is very rigid!) but the property looks fantastic!
Any help is appreciated, I realize this is a tired subject...but I have read so many threads now...I am confused! Will we completely regret going at this time of year?
