Two families are traveling to Playacar in July. I have stayed at the Barcelo and loved it, but this time we prefer to be closer to town. Not necessarily walking distance, but a 5 dollar cab ride is okay. We did not view the beaches in teh playacar area.. are they rocky? We are thinking of the Iberostar Tucan or the Gala Resort. Any suggestions would be great. Nice beach, sandy no rocks, good food, nice pool, swim up bar, pool activities are the must haves.
