vac_summer, did you decide where you are going to go? We went to PDC last year and stayed at the Riu Palace and really liked it. We are going back again in a few weeks. We thought the Iberostar looked nice but it is pretty far from town and we like to venture out a little. We had also looked into the Gala but it seems to be more of a family place. In regards to the comments about the town of PDC, I totally disagree about it being unsafe. We went into town a few times last year and never once did we feel unsafe. I thought it was kind of a neat town with the brick streets and all. Here is are a couple of good sites that have reader reviews: http://www.ramproductions.com/survey/topres.asp and http://www.debbiescaribbeanresortrev...co/mexico.html. Have fun.

We were at the Sunscape Tulum in December. We were very pleased with it but had done alot of reading and research so I think we knew pretty much what to expect. There were bad reviews on Tripadvisor over Christmas regarding over booking and it seemed that Apple was heavily involved in it. Someone since then has posted that the manager, Rod, commented that the negative reviews were deserved and the issues have now been resolved. For what it's worth, the general manager was very visable and accessible on grounds. And I say that being a first time visitor in a run-of-the-house room--we were not repeat customers spending excessive money.

Apple rates the Sunscape as a 6 Apple, but that may be a bit overrated. The decor is very simple and understated--not the glitz some might expect. The food and service was the best we've ever experienced at an AI. (For comparasion, we have been other places but not the top-end, very expensive places). If you are interested in nightlife, the Sunscape is not for you. If you are interested in quiet and relaxing, it might be the place.

After doing alot of reasearch, we decided on the Gala...hoping it's not TOO much for families. The Iberostar Paraiso was a close second (sounds absolutely beautiful) but more costly than the Gala...still looking for advise...maybe on Playa de Carmen?????

vac_summer When will you be at the Gala? My mother, myself and my 9 year old daughter just made reservations there for 6/13 - 6/21. We have done a lot of research on the internet and felt this resort had the most to offer adults as well as children. Really looking forward to it...
