November All Inclusive Vacation: Barbados or Riviera Maya?

Jump to last reply

My boyfriend and I (and possibly another couple) are planning to go on an All Inclusive vacation this November. I've narrowed it down to a list of resorts (below), and I was hoping to either get some feedback from anyone who has been to one of them, or help me add or subtract from the list.

My criteria is pretty much:
- Lots of beach/pool time
- Would appreciate activites like beach volleyball (for example)
- Some nightlife without having to leave the resort
- Possibly nightlife outside
- Don't need adults-only, but not a place dominated by kids...more bars than playgrounds
- Some attractions for 1 or 2 daytrips
- A place that's not so small that we may get bored in 7 days
- Good weather, passing showers are OK (I know November is not the ideal time everywhere), but sunshine is key
- A la carte restaurant availability, don't want to get stuck eating at a buffet for dinner, would be fine at buffets for breakfast/lunch though
- Prefer more spread out resorts, with a number of 2-3 story buildings, instead of a large tower
- We're right around the 30 y.o. mark, would be nice to have others in our age range to possibly make friends with

Here is my list right now:

Barbados:
Almond Beach Village All Inclusive Resort
Almond Beach Club & Spa All Inclusive
Crystal Cove Hotel All Inclusive

Riviera Maya:
Valentin Imperial Maya
Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun
Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa
Gran Bahia Principe Tulum
Royal Suites Yucatan by Palladium
El Dorado Royale Spa Resort - Gourmet All Inclusive

I appreciate any suggestions/insight/advice!
Thanks!
Kaya
