I've read a bunch of posts asking between the two hotels but our situation is a little different. We're traveling with two children ages 1 and 4 in mid-December. If we stay at Villa Del Arco we'll buy the all-inclusive package. My first concern is about getting nickel and dimed at Villa del Arco. It looks like there is a lot that is not included in the "all inclusive". The Riu Santa Fe looks to be a truer all-inclusive but I get the feeling it might be over run with older kids and super packed. We'd like a quiet resort with more than 1 nice pool. Both resorts are selling for about the same right now. We also looked at Hola Gran Faro but there's no ocean swimming nearby but will consider it if its a lot better fit for us. We don't care about evening activities since the kids will be sleeping and we'll have to be with them. We had to eliminate other hotels because they charge the full, nightly all-inclusive rate for my 4 year old - just too expensive for us. I appreciate any thoughts/suggestions?
