          Hi, my wife and I are traveling to Playa Del Carmen with our 1 and 1/2 year old son at the end of June. This is our first time visiting Mexico. Is the resort child friendly for his age? And also, the end of June will be very hot, is there shaded areas on the beach and A/C in all of the rooms? Thanks!

          Hi, Just wanted to check how the beach in front of this resort is? We are coming in September and love the water. So hoping there isn't much seaweed? Also, i read somewhere the waters are calm - does that mean there aren't much waves? We are looking for a beach with a good amount of waves (not choppy or rough though). Thanks!
