Barcelo Maya vs Iberostar Paraiso - which is better for teens?

Jump to last reply

We are looking for someplace warm to go over Christmas break with our teen & no longer teen (17 &21). We were thinking an AI with lots to do would be good. We all like the beach & water activities. Want somewhere that we can spend some time together & some apart.

I posted earlier here & on tripadvisor. These 2 complexes were both mentioned as good ones to check. I see that the Barcelo is considerably cheaper for the dates we want. The question is if it would be good for the 17 yo. It says on their website that they have teen activities and teen nights at the disco. However, some people commented in reviews that when they went there was nothing for teens to do at night. I've also seen conflicting reports as to whether there's something for teens to do at night at the Iberostar.

Has anyone been to either of these resorts recently with teens and what do you think? Or has anyone been there over Christmas break? That's probably more relevant than what happens during the summer. I am also still open to other ideas for great places to go.
