I have been researching for a couple of weeks now and I have finally narrowed my choices down to these 2 resorts. We are going for a week in Feb. with 2 kids aged 9 & 12. I am really torn on which one to choose. There seems to be nice things about both. My main concern is keeping my kids happy and not bored. The kids clubs seem to be for smaller children. I know the barcelo has a kiddie pool that I'm assuming is for younger children. Too bad they don't have a couple bigger slides for my kids age group. The calm ocean seems nice for snorkeling there though. As for the Paraiso Maya, the wave pool seems really cool and the lazy river. There are so many mixed reviews for both resorts that it's leaving me frustrated! And very mixed reviews on the food!
Has anyone been to both and possibly with kids my age? I just want to book something and get it done, but I just can't decide. I keep changing my mind everyday. Any help would be appreciated!
