Hotel for kids - ages 6 and 11

I think we have decided on the Riviera Maya for a family of 4. We two kids – ages 6 and 11. Looking for a great place to stay at for them. May or may not utilize a kids club as we hate to leave them there but if it’s a good time for them and they want to then we will. I am just trying to figure out that one ideal resort where they will not get too bored. I would prefer a water slide/park type place as that may be a little more exciting than just a pool but not necessary. Just looking for a place with activity. Price – mid range. I would also love a place that has a Hibachi restaurant (fun place) but not necessary either. Any recommendations would be great. Usually travel with couples so that makes it a bit easier.

The first 2 that popped in my head after reading your post were:

The Barcelo Maya complex of resorts and the Iberostar Paraiso complex of resorts.

Both are geared toward families and have hibachi grill restaurants.

Barcelo is in Puerto Aventuras which is south of Playa del Carmen. There are 5 resorts within the complex (Palace, Tropical, Colonial, Caribe, Beach) and all are at different price points depending on your budget. There is on site snorkeling which most resorts do not have. Also, there is a kids club and kids water park area at these resorts.

The Iberostar Paraiso complex is a little south of Puerto Morelos, about 25 min south of the airport and has 4 family resorts to choose from (Maya, Lindo, Beach, Del Mar). I would book either the Maya or Lindo. They have a little water park as well, kids club but also have a lazy river to float around, and a wave pool.
