I would look at Iberostar chain since they do have a number of resorts in the area which may fit your needs.

Playacar Palace is a great family resort and it's located in Playa del Carmen so it's a quick walk to the shops, bars and restaurants.

for all-inclusives, we liked the Iberostar Tucan Quetzal and the Riu Playacar. Both are in Playacar, have great beaches, and are family friendly.

I would try the Gran Porto Real. Its right in town a 4 star but not the best beach.

Good luck Cheers from BC

Well, I have to throw my two cents in. Sandos Playacar (the section that is on the beach), has decent rooms, decent food and a beautiful beach. If you are traveling with children, they have an extensive lineup of activities, throughout the day, to keep everyone occupied. Also, you might look into the Viva Wyndham Maya. Both resorts are located in the Playacar, gated community, and, maybe a 20 minute walk into Playa Del Carmen.

I would also reccomend the Gran Porto as a great family resort...yeah the beach isn't the best but it is definitely not he worst either.The location being right in Playa del carmen and steps to 5th ave is great to allow you to come and go as you wish as well. Here is a link to a resort video...

I would also second the Iberostar chains as we have had many great vacations with them as well. The Tucan/Quetzal property is very nice and also receives great reviews from repeat visitors.
