We just received some unexpected news and have to change our travel plans. To make a long story short we were set to board our plane tonite when my dad had an unexpected brain aneurysm. He's set for surgery in the AM and needless to say if we went on holidays my mind just wouldn't be there. Air canada was gracious enough to allow us to change our flights to next week free of charge. Although, sunwing did charge a $500 change fee, but that is better than losing the entire amount.
We are travelling with 2 small children aged 6 and 3 and were previously booked into Azul fives but they no longer have any rooms avail for the new dates (mar 07 -14). which is a bummer as we had did a fair amount of research.
we basically have to choose a hotel from the below site by tomorrow night and are looking for input from other board members.
in order importance things we value most are:
1. food/dining (not looking for gourmet or fine dining but wants options other than buffet)
2. cleanliness of rooms and resort (prefer somewhat newer resort)
4. price ($3000 and under)
4. beach and pool (kid friendly)
through our limited research we are leaning toward Dreams Tulum which we are getting for $2867 for hotel only for this period (Mar 7 - 14)
any assistance/suggestions are appreciated.
