I'll recommend Dreams Puerto Vallarta since we were just married there over Memorial Day weekend. You can read my review (in my siggy), but we had a fabulous time and it was everything we had hoped for & more. Dreams is definitely family-friendly and is all-inclusive -- two criteria we were also looking for when we researched potential locations. We had 3 nieces & nephews under age 7 and a friend of ours brought their infant daughter.
The hotel is a good size without being a mega-resort, the food is delicious, it has its own private beach and is only about 10 minutes South of downtown PV, a beautiful culturally-rich city. Many of our guests (including both sets of parents) had never been to an all-inclusive before and everyone was blown away by the service, food, drinks & location. For us, Dreams was absolutely perfect!
And although we were married on the beach, they have a lovely gazebo for ceremonies as well. Autumn (username autjo) was married there and she has a great review & pics of the gazebo. Our reception was outside at one of the pool terraces & was private.
Here's the Dreams PV thread (it's really long, but there is a ton of helpful info there).
Best of luck to your daughter & family and let me know if you have any questions!

The resort is spectacular with a few beautiful gazebos that aren't on the beach but have panoramic views of the beach. The also have outdoor and indoor options for receptions. There are multiple reviews on Moon Palace Cancun from BDW brides. Go to wedding reviews from the main page, then type Moon Palace in the search box to access them. Most have pictures with accolades, advice, and critiques of each experience.
I hope that this helps. Happy Planning!!!

I haven't been down myself yet but I hear the food is wonderful.
There is gazebo for weddings that is in the ocean (the aisle is kinda a bridge). They have several indoor and outdoor reception locations and don't charge extra for them. When I was looking I found a lot of resorts make you have your reception in a corner of one the the restaurants so it's not very private, or they charge an extra $80 a person to have a private reception.
