best hotel for teenagers?

Looking for a hotel that will keep teenagers busy. Two 15-year old girls and two 16-year old girls. Things like water sports, nice beach, good food, and a teen disco on site would be preferred. Also, preferrably near town. Suggestions? And which would be better, an AI or non-AI?

Unfortunately, no discos in hotels and no teen discos at all on the island that I know of.

You don't necessarily have to be close to town. You're best bet will be Palm Beach. Everything within walking distance..hi rise hotels, water sports, casinos, movies, mall and restaurants of all kinds. They will find people their age to hang out with and you won't have to worry about entertaining them. I wouldn't go all inclusive as there are so many places to eat.

Depending on your budget check these our

Radisson or Hyatt (GORGEOUS hotels)

Holiday Inn (great value for its location)

Beverly Hills...

How about the Tam? Kids under 17 stay and eat free! With four teens perhaps AI makes sense in this case.

Lisa is the Tam destination expert....I am sure she will provide all the details....

In this situation, I would recommend Mexico.. Playa Del Carmen or Cancun. I think you'll find a lot more teenagers, discos in the hotels, more activities for that age group, etc.. Just my 2 cents.

I cannot think of any hotels which have extensive activities day and night for teenagers. With that said, the Tamarijn is all inclusive, offers children 17 and under free with up to two per room when sharing a room with parents.

The resorts main night time activity for teens is "hanging" out at the billiard tables next to the big screen TV at the lobby.

Day time activities:

Snorkeling equipment, snorkel clinic and tour, sunfish sailing, floats, kayaks, beginner's windsurfing equipment and "Learn to Windsurf" beach clinic...

Tennis on courts lighted for night play, beach volleyball, beach olympics, bikes and bike tour, dance lessons, beach soccer, billiards, board games, darts, basketball, and a 30-foot outdoor rock climbing wall on the beach .

The resort concierges can arrange any type of activities you choose. I highly recommend the ATV tour with Kini Kini http://www.kinikini.com/kk/servlet/Home as well as a snorkel excursion on the Jolly Pirates. Both were the highlights of our last visit.
