We went to IM for the first time in June on our honeymoon. It was beautiful, wonderful, and I had such a good time! Here I am six months later (and six months pregnant... that fertility goddess business is no sham!) and I can't stop thinking about the next time we go!
We did like the all inclusive at PA, especially for the massive amounts of bottled water we took from there. The next time, however, we'll be bringing with us a baby and an 8 or 9 year old (not sure if we'll get there next winter or in 2014... sigh...). PA definitely has the amenities we like, but I don't know if I'd consider it a family place - or even if it's truly family-friendly. Suggestions on where to go?
There will be three adults (grandma gets to help watch the kids!), an elementary aged child, and an infant. My husband definitely liked being able to flush TP down the drain (the wastebasket thing sort of freaked him out). I definitely don't mind making some meals, we love eating out at all the awesome diners, and distance to shopping/nightlife isn't an issue really. (Nothing's very far on a golf cart if we decide to get out for an evening.) We do like modern/clean facilities and a pool on site would be fabulous. Near a good beach would be great too, but not a necessary as we'll go up to North Beach anyway.
