The section designed for guests ages three to five features a house, a fire station, a construction zone, a supermarket and a play kitchen. The littlest guests can also visit the jungle room, a quiet zone.
In the sleek area for kids ages six to 12, they can hop on a computer or play the latest, most popular video games. In addition, Launch by Design commissioned an interactive, 30-square-foot LED wall, which features an electronic game that teaches children about the ancient Mayan culture through learning, interactive play and fun facts.
They earn rewards from playing these games and can claim prizes throughout the hotel.

The Open Play Theater features a stage with a digital backdrop, curtains, a light-up dance floor and a backstage dressing room, complete with costumes, makeup and dressing mirrors.
The Arts and Crafts room offers views of the turquoise Caribbean to help spark creativity.
The fun happens outside, as well. NEOS, the world’s first electronic play system for the playground, combines both the speed and fun of video games with the lively movement of aerobic exercise.
In the Open Play area, kids will find a basketball hoop, a custom race car track for racing their very own remote-controlled cars and traditional Mexican sidewalk games.
One of the best activities offered at Coral KidZ Club is the cooking class, which is taught by the resort’s own Executive Chef Francisco Flores. The safe, interactive classes are taught in the brand new kitchen, and kids are given their own chef hats and apron. Children may be accompanied by parents.
Mini chef cooking classes are offered on Wednesday and Saturdays at 3 p.m. Two complimentary classes are included in the KidZ Club "passport," while additional classes are priced at $18 USD (excluding taxes) per child.
