Sorry Moncton, I will gladly pay a premium to not have to endure undisciplined kids running wild. if they didn't fill the rooms, they wouldn't be AO.

There is also probably a market for antisemites, homophobics and racists, doesn't mean they should be catered to.
Wow, could you possibly be any more out to lunch? It seems unlikely. :facepalm:

The hotel's "solution" to avoiding Expedia is one big fail: their site is in English only! Imagine the pain in the but that it would be if we illiminated the middle man and had to go to each hotel, that we knew of, individually untill we found one that met our budget and was available. Mexico vacations would quickly get expensive if we could only deal with English speaking hotels.

Don't use Expedia. Fine. But avoiding travel agency sites is not the solution. At least until Google comes up with a hotel version of google.ca/flights.

Also, Children: As we are a adults-only hotel, we welcome only children ages 14 and up. Frankly, that should be illegal, even in Mexico.
I raised my kids, I made them behave and was never in a situation where I had to apologise for or be embarassed by their behavior. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the prevailing attitude these days. Kids can do what they want whenever they want. I don't want to be near that or hear that.
So, I choose to frequent places that are "adult" orinetated so I won't have to listen to kids screaming for their mommy and mommy not paying attention. Or bringing baby into the pool so it can p in the water. I am glad there are adult only place.

Not cool. Discriminating against children is illegal for hotels in Canada. Should be the same in Mexico. Like most Canadians, I believe in human rights. Obviously, discriminating against children (and their parents) isn't quite the same as discriminating against adult Blacks, Jews, Gays, the physically challenged or women, but when circumstances don't warrant it (not a strip club) it is a form of xenophobic discrimination. Where does it end? Children-free neighbourhoods? Children-free cities? Being tolerant is sometimes tough, but it is part of the human experience.
Clicking on "Thanks" is appreciated.
Pete_Coach and Armeee are on my ignore list.

There are "Adult Communities" and "Adult Condominiums" and "Adult Apartments" in Canada. Perhaps not hotels but there are for sure "Adult" places where kids are not allowed.
It is actually good that there are places in the World that are not as politically correct and that have not succumbed to the minority activists demands as us. That, in fact, make them toursit meccas and we, in Canada, lose the tourist dollars.
"Xenophobic discrimination", are you for real?

Definitely a troll post, but I'll respond due to its sheer stupidity.

Tolerance is a two-way street. Just how adults should be tolerant of children, parents and children should be tolerant of those that wish to relax in a peaceful and calm atmosphere. In most cases when kids are around this isn't possible.

As for age being a form of discrimination. You are correct that one cannot be discriminated against on this basis - however, the law is clear that there are limits and this is not cut and dry. For one, age discrimination laws are meant to protect seniors, not youth. Second, certain age minimums have been accepted as being reasonable. In the same way a child cannot drive, enter into a binding contract, and become employed, until they reach a certain age, they may also be barred from entering certain establishments, which may include hotels and resorts.
