Looking for decent food, fun pool for kids (ages 6 and 9), beach with clear water and sandy entry. Clean room, nothing fancy. About 4K budget from Boston, so could stay an extra night or do more excursions if we go with Tequila. Probably could only afford lower tier iberostar like Del Mar but not Lindo or Maya. Hear good things about Grand Palladium, which seems like the middle option of our choices. Your advice for us is greatly appreciated. We are first time to region and to all inclusives.
