what's your favorite all-inclusive tropical family resort?
We're looking at taking a trip end-of summer or this fall.
There are some great deals out there, but I don't how much I trust the reviews of the various hotels.
I'd like to use costco travel, and we're thinking Mexico. I recently started looking at dominican republic and US virgin islands too, though.
3 kids age 2, 5, 7 will be coming along, and some of the places offer up to two kids free with two adults, including all food and beverages, alcohol, room service etc.
costco travel had this place for about $640 total for 5 day/4 nights, all inclusive. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g150793-d154772-Reviews-Crown_Paradise_Club_Puerto_Vallarta-Puerto_Vallarta_Pacific_Coast.html#REVIEWS
Some of the reviews concerned me, and I would prefer someplace where the beach is nice and sandy, and it seems that the dates we'd like to travel are the rainy season...
any personal experience or favorite resorts you'd like to share? Particularly if we're on a tight budget?
