Short trip with my preteen - hotel help

Short trip with my preteen - hotel help

Hello experts, I am considering a 4 day/night trip starting the latter part of MM Weekend with my daughter (12). It will just be me and her. After doing some research, I think PM is probably our best option, being closer to airport, having a nice beach and smaller community feel. We have stayed in PDC several times (Mahekal Beach Resort is my favorite hotel), but for only 4 days its too far and PM would be a new experience.

I would love some advice on a smaller hotel with a pool directly on the beach (preferable with a balcony facing water). It can be AI, but not necessary. However, a restaurant would be ideal for breakfast/lunch. We want a place to enjoy the pool and beach all day and then be able to go safely out for dinner within walking distance, where there might be a few shops to peruse. We may visit one of the big adventure parks or sightsee one day if we are up to it, but will travel solely by taxi/guided group. Currently I am looking at Hacienda Morelos.

Also how might the sargussum and sand lice be? The one time I went to Cancun it was mid May and I got eaten alive. I don't mind the Sargussum so much if it can be cleaned up each day, but the sand lice was a horrible experience for me.

Thank you so much for your assistance.

We enjoy staying at Amar Inn. Very safe, family owned, (live in house), small pool, gorgeous garden, 1 minute to beach and a delicious breakfast is included. Great location. Short walk to restaurants and to pier to snorkel.

Hacienda Morelos is just ok, no refrigerator in rooms and the area around the hotel c.an get loud; there is a bar /club close by.

The think the Amar inn is a good suggestion. If having a beachside pool is real important check out hotel Ojo de Agua.
