Picking A Resort That Will Be Good For Kids Too!

Recommended Posts

Hi, we are looking for a resort to have a destination wedding somewhere in the Cancun/Riviera Maya, Isla Mujeres area. We have been to Secrets Maroma Beach and are going to the Excellence Playa Mujeres this summer.  I know these are more expensive resorts and want to be respective to our guests and don't want to price them out of coming to our wedding.

 

I also have two boys, ages 4 and 6 (5 and & at the time of the wedding) and want this to be fun for them as well.  Can anyone recommend a kid friendly resort that won't break the bank and still has some luxury amenities???

Check out Sandos Caracol Eco Resort in Playa. We are having our wedding there. My travel agent highly recommended it for us because the wedding coordinator is good and there are lots of things to do there as well. There's a kids waterslide park and an adult one is under construction.

I just came back from my wedding (off resort) but we stayed at Sandos Caracol because they had a lot of things for the kids to do!  We had a total of 10 kids  coming to our wedding and they all had a blast between the pool, waterpark and the kids club.   100% recommended!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
