Hundreds of places. Best you list your criteria (e.g. big small resort , or snorkeling / kids clubs, 3, 4, or 5 stars, best al la carte restaurants, beach front or back of resort, etc

Hi, though I have not been, we are choosing to go to Akumal Beach resort with our two children next year. We just got back from Playa Del Carmen. We were at a small resort, it was great to get around easily. We took a day trip to Akumal and fell in love with the beaches and snorkling was awsome. We heard wonderful things about Akumal Beach resort especially the snorkling....it is a 3 star hotel but with a 5++ star beach. that is fine for us.

Stayed at ABR. Very small AI (less than 250 rooms) all on the beach or a few minutes from it (as are the buffet and 2 a la catre rest.). The beach has the best snorkeling with lots of turtles. Small village right beside which gives you the feel of Mexico.

Can't go wrong as long as you don't want cruise ship type food/drinks

I love the self service snack bar with soft ice cream, nachos, pizza, and other kid food.

Hi Vancouver sundog, we got back two weeks ago from a small resort in Playa Del Carmen(Grand Coco Bay, 202rms) we loved the fact that it was small....We had rented a car and drove to Tulum to see the ruins, swam at the beach then drove to Akumal and snorkled in front of Lo Ha Restaurent. We loved the area and that is how we decided to go to Akumal for next year and thought to go to ABR as I did hear it has awsome snorkling in front.....

You might want to take a look at the Sandos Gala in Playacar. It is geared towards families with small kids and has the best kids' facilities from what I've read.
