I'm going back and forth on which resort to pick for our trip the first week of June. It is myself, my husband and 2 kids ages 18 and 15. Our kids favorite resort that we have been to so far is Beaches Turks and Caicos so I'm looking at Royalton Punta Cana in a 2 bedroom suite. Other considerations are Grand Palladium Bavaro or Barcelo Bavaro Palace in a connected family suite for half the price.
We are looking for nice beach that we can snorkel (I know snorkeling is not the best in PC) and my 15 year old is interested in PADI courses. Also would like decent food and not watered down drinks. I don't want to be nickeled and dimed if I ask for a top shelf liquor. The water park at Royalton would be a great bonus but, again, is it worth twice the cost of other resorts?
