Teens may be one of the toughest age groups to please when planning a family vacation, so choosing a resort that will keep a smile on your little ones AND your independent adolescent is not always an easy task. Family travel website, FamilyVacationCritic.com, is well aware of this challenge and offers its expertise on where to find a family escape that will prompt some enthusiasm from your pre-adult, rather than the generous “I’ll stay home and house-sit” offer.

4. Beaches Turks & Caicos
Image conscious adolescents needn’t lose their cool when they check in to Beaches Turks & Caicos, part of the all-inclusive resort chain known for an entertaining parade of Sesame Street characters. Located on beautiful Grace Bay in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos Islands, this all-inclusive resort is an attractive playground for active teens as well as their younger siblings. After a day spent sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing and scuba diving, teens can try their foot at surfing on a SurfStream simulator, make their own CDs at Scratch DJ Academy, chill at Trench Town Lounge or hang out at Xbox 360 Game Garage or Liquid, an aqua-themed dance club. Treatments for teens at Red Lane Spa include "Irie Manicures" and "Reggae Pedicures," and since snacks and seconds are included, they can indulge growing appetites, without draining your bank account. In May, 2009, the resort opened The Italian Village, containing 162 family suites.
