Barcelo Maya Beach/Caribe or upgrade to BM Palace?

Is there really a big advantage to upgrading from the Beach or Caribe section to any of the other sections (Tropical, Colonial, or Palace Deluxe other than being able to use the restaurants/bars in the others?

We are going with our 1 year old and 5 year old, and were already planning to upgrade to the Club Premium rooms on the Beach/Caribe side just for the unlimited ala carte uses and the room service benefits. I doubt we would take the kids to the other sections just to eat.

So would there really be an advantage to just going ahead and booking one of the "upgraded" sections vs. what we were already planning to book?

The buffet at the Beach/Caribe isn't air conditioned. Depending upon the time of year you're going, this could be a big deal or a non-issue.

The Palace is quite a step up from the Beach/Caribe .... but unless there's some sort of sale going on, it's also quite a lot more money.
