Azul Beach in Playa Del Carmen vs. Beaches Negril for a Family Vacation

Hello, I am looking for some advice on which destination and hotel would be best for us. I am a 35 year old woman looking to take a 5 night trip this July with my 34 year old husband, my 56 year old mother in law, and our two children- ages 7 and 3. After much research, I have narrowed our options down to the Azul Beach Hotel in Playa del Carmen, and Beaches Negril. I ended up with these two options in large part because the three most important factors to me are (1) quality of the food (we are VERY picky about food, and feel most all inclusives are mediocre in that department if you're lucky), (2) the level at which the resort caters to families with children, and (3) the natural beauty of the beach and surrounding areas. My husband and I have been to Playa del Carmen alone before (we stayed at Secrets Maroma and Grand Velas) and love all the snorkeling, and other nature activities available in the area for the kids. Ive been to Ocho Rios, but never Negril and I hear great things about it. Thoughts?
