Every year my family takes a vacation together in June. We are 3 generations ranging from 4-67 y/o. The last two years we've cruised on Royal Caribbean out of Florida.I am lobbying heavily for a vacation @ an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic. I've never been to one but the idea of having a beach and a pool you can actually cool off in is appealing, pluss there's more to do.It was so hot on our cruise last year that I couldn't stay outdoor for long and the 3' deep pool was wall to wall people and like bath water. My bother and his wife went to an all incluse many years ago and said the food was "cafteria style" and "lousy". Do family oriented all inclusives serve better food than Royal Carribbean which we all agreed was just OK? Pricewise we're looking in the middle of the pack and it has to have kids activities, separate dining for them when they want it. If you can reccomend any properies it would be much appreciated.
