We will be arriving July 17 for a couple of weeks. This is our first trip, bringing a 12 year old and a 15 year old. Considering staying at the Seven Seas or Banana Beach. Does anyone have any opinions about those places. Or, is there a better place comparable in price? Also, is this a rainy season, if so how much rain. Thanks for your ideas!

Choose the one closest to town, then the children can walk to town for ice cream, soda or whatever. That will free you up, and they can burn some energy, plus have fun. By your two picks, Seven Seas is the closes to town, as I recall.

Jules..we stayed at the Seven Seas (SS's) last September.Nice place,not luxurious by any means,very basic.Only the bedroom(with a double bed) is air-conditioned.It gets really hot in the summer,but if you leave the windows open,there is a good breeze. There is a couch in the living area that makes a bed, but we never had to use it,so not sure how comfortable it would be.Units are furnished,very basic,but adequate,small pool in back.Space may be a bit cramped for 4.Not sure about your budget,but you may want to check out Paradise Villas which is, I think,even closer to town.Hey, Debbie from Texas...where are you girl? She stayed at PV last year with two teenage sons and raved about the place.She and her husband are going back this year without the kids and staying at the SS's.Maybe start a new thread asking Debbie for help with this, or do check out PV. Not a thing wrong with SS's, just a small unit.Everthing else was great. Feel free to e-mail us at [email protected] with any other questions. Have a great time.

Why don't you check out Paradise Villas or the Blue Tang Inn? They might be a bit more money but they sure have what you need. There are some units in the Blue Tang that are huge and for the same price (or at least it was the same price) as the Mayan Princess, but now they have a pool and have done a bunch of reno's to spruce up the place. Both Paradise Villas and Blue Tang are right around the corner from a larger grocery store and near to the highschool basketball courts. Nice easy walk to the town centre from there too.

We stayed at Banyan Bay, just North of Banana Bay. It was about a mile walk into town. We have a 15 & 17 yr. old. It definitely is a bit of a walk. We probably would stay closer to town next time. We didn't do as much as I would have liked to in town but the kids didn't seem to mind. Ramon's looked VERY nice. It really depends on what you are looking for. I would say the beaches are definitely the best from Banyan south! Also how much do you want to spend? We spent $285/night (4 person- beachfront-2 bedroom-2 bath-kitchen-AC.) $260 if you don't need beachfront. Also a very nice pool, restaurant and dive shop.

Banyan Bay is at or near the top of the price range. Ramone's has a beautiful pool area, grounds and a great dock. The beach area is not too bad either by SP standards. The rooms are only fair so you are paying for the ambiance of the grounds, etc. For the money, there are probably better places unless you only care about the grounds, etc.

HI!! It's Debbie from Texas. Yes, we stayed at Paradise Villas last year with two teens. They have two bedroom and one bedroom units with a fold out couch. We stayed in the one bedroom and were pretty comfortable. But we had two boys, 12 and 15 at the time. If you have a boy and a girl, they may not want to share the couch/bed. The one bedroom was roomy, nice and cool and ideally located. I think we ended up paying $107 per night. Not bad for the location, the gorgeous grounds, the fabulous pool and a kitchen to boot. Last year the 2 bedroom was around 150 to 160 per night. The kitchen was a must with kids... They eat and drink non-stop, but I'm sure you already know that....LOL
I was more than please with it. It was a 3 to 5 minute walk to town. Golf cart parking just outside the door. The patios were large and had table and chair. The dock was nice to swim from and it was just next door to Hustler Tours..... The management will provide a BBQ grill for your use. Nice to have with the kids!!! There was a small grocery about a minute walk away. The kids loved it.
