Iberostar PM or Grand Palladium Vallarta?

Looking for opinions on IPM and GPV for a 22 and 24 yrs old couple. (My son and his gf)

Son has traveled to many 4+ and 5 star Mexico resorts, mostly in Cancun area, but also Cabo, Coz and Huatulco. Girlfriend has never been, and budget is in play for this trip as they are paying for it.

They are the same price. Which one would have better pools, service and beach area? Is one more kid busy? Any clear winner between the 2?

Another property in the mix is Riu Jalisco but he was there years ago and it is nice to try new resorts.

Anyone been to all 3?

Iberostar is a much better resort. Palladium is fine but wouldn't even consider it over iberostar.

We have been to all three, would go back to Iberostar in a heartbeat!

Iberostar is the clear winner, beach, pool, service, staff, rooms, food... Everything!

Iberostar, but it is so isolated. If they want to head to town it's a long way.

Also, Iberostar is way better than the RIU Jalisco, and the RIU Vallarta. On the other hand, if you get a good price on the RIU Palace Pacifico, I'd go with the Palace. We have stayed at all of them.
