Great beach and great for teens?

I need an all inclusive with a great beach and lots to keep teens busy. I will be taking 3 teenage girls. So I am staying away from cancun and just want an all inclusive. Also I will take them to anything you might suggest off site for fun.

Barcelo is the most teen friendly resort in the area, best beach with water toys. Located in a private bay deep white sand beach also with protected snorkleing area. Teen disco, teen activities. Huge pools, and cenotes withing walking distance. Located between Akumal (swim with the Turtles) and Puerto Adventuras.

Our teens loved Coba Ruins because you can climb the large Pyramid. Also Gran Cenote in Tulum

I have been to the Grand Palladium many times with teens/young adults. Four resorts plus a fifth adults only area. Guests at the four resorts can use all amenities at all four including a long varied beachfront with tons of shade, soft white sand, areas for snorkeling and a salt water pool. Unlimited a la carts at nine restaurants.There is a teen club that offers many teen activities as well as an active entertainment staff that offer many activities for teens. Four beach bars, two offer food 24/7 which is popular with teens as well as a disco and sports bar. Palladium is very well located so close to Tulum, AKumal, Playa del Carmen. Also close to Xel Ha, Xcaret, Xplor.

Note the Palladium discourages unsupervised teens as you will find in Cancun and at some other resorts.

Many choices of accommodations.

Sorry don't know why that pic didn't post easily. Palladium has tons of shade. Some resorts do not.

I highly recommend the Barceló for both kids and teens.

There's so much for them to do and Barceló def. has the best beaches (2km) for swimming, snorkeling and water toys. It's paradise.

We are heading back for the 7th time with our tween and another family with 2 teens. They have all been to Barcelo before and are not interested in trying anywhere else!
