When it comes to all-inclusive vacations with children, the smart option always seems to be finding the best resort with the most inclusions. Some people don’t bother to pay attention to the quality of these inclusions or the fine print and find themselves stuck in a vacation scenario that’s nothing like they’d envisioned.
Add dissatisfied kids to the mix, and what you’ll have is the sort of vacation nightmares are made of. Fortunately, Beaches offers both great inclusions, as well as the sort of quality most people would hope to get out of an all-inclusive resort vacation.
Beaches all-inclusive resorts pay attention to the finer details, and include various categories of luxury accommodation, free airport transfers, day and night entertainment for parents and kids, up to 21 restaurants per resort, bars including swim-up bars, a waterpark, a nightclub for teens (that changes to adults-only later at night), land and water sports, an Xbox Play Lounge, Kids Camps & Nannies, Sesame Street® adventures, and so much more!
At a time when more and more families are going the all-inclusive way for their vacations, details (and satisfaction) matter, so resorts like Beaches are paying attention. Here’s what you can expect from your all-inclusive family vacation package at Beaches.
Your kids won’t be able to get enough of the Pirates Island waterparks at Beaches resorts in the Caribbean. These waterparks can be found at every Beaches resort and have earned a reputation for being the ultimate fun zone for kids. From water cannons and whirlpools to waterslides (and even sometimes a lazy river!), there’ll be something to do for kids of all ages at Beaches Pirates Island waterparks.
Insider tip: Your little ones will love the kid-friendly pools and swim-up soda bars at the Pirates Island Waterpark. If you happen to be heading to the Turks & Caicos Islands, don’t miss the chance to try out the surf simulator at Beaches Turks & Caicos (the only one in the Caribbean!).
Through an exclusive partnership with Sesame Street®, Beaches Resorts lets kids have a blast with famous friends from the Sesame Street® cast. Caribbean adventures with Sesame Street® unfold daily, and kids can play and take part in activities like Baking with Cookie Monster, Puppet Making with Bert & Ernie, Move and Groove with Zoe and Rosita, and more! Recently, there’s been a few changes to these adventures to ensure that kids and their families can stay safer while still having fun together!
Let your kids have some free time where they can mingle with other kids their age at Beaches Kids Camps. Beaches Kids Camps cater to all ages and activities to suit your child’s age group. All of the Kids Camps at Beaches Resorts are also certified Autism Centers with team members who have the knowledge and skills to care for all children, even those with special needs. Beaches also offers nanny services to parents who want to have a little time for themselves or just need a little extra attention for their little ones. Beaches nannies, as well as the staff at the Kids Camps, are all members of the International Nanny Association, which means you can rest assured that your kids are in good hands.
Insider tip: Beaches Resort is autism-friendly and was the first resort company in the world to complete the comprehensive IBCCES training and Autism Certification. As part of that inclusiveness, kids can also try Amazing Art with Julia, a 4-year-old Sesame Street® character with autism, as part of ‘Sesame Street® and Autism: See Amazing in All Children’.
Looking for a vacation where you won’t have to keep trying to think up things to occupy the kids? Beaches is a sure win in that department! Your kids can try out unlimited land sports, on their own or with the new friends they are bound to make. With activities like tennis, pool, shuffleboard, table tennis, croquet, volleyball, basketball, and more, Beaches has more included land sports than any other resort in the Caribbean, as well as professional instruction available for all activities. The Beaches Resorts in Jamaica even include golf and offer golf clinics that your kids will love. While the kids are busy playing, the adults can join in on the fun or spend some time at the Red Lane Spa® Fitness Center, if they want to get active.
The mesmerizing blues and greens of the Caribbean Sea are beautiful beyond your wildest dreams but splashing around in the ocean can be a reality during your Beaches family vacation. In fact, your kids probably won’t want to get out of the water! During your family beach time, you can enjoy some fun water sports. There are many options available including waterskiing, water tubing, glass-bottom boat rides, windsurfing, bodyboarding, paddleboarding, kayaking, and laser bug sailing boats for kids and teens. You and the kids will also be able to hop on the aqua trikes or Hobie Cats to make a few rounds on the waves!
Expert tip: Nothing brings a family together like learning to sail! If you and your crew are feeling adventurous, you can sign up for this thrilling activity while you are on your vacation and cruise the Caribbean.
There’s hardly a better place to scuba dive than in the Caribbean. You’ll be happy to know that snorkeling and scuba diving are both included at Beaches. All you’ll need to do is sign up at the resort dive shop and show up ready for an undersea adventure at your designated dive time. Scuba diving at Beaches is free for certified divers (up to 2 tanks per day)! Dive equipment is provided at no additional cost, but the resort dive shop also sells dive gear, if you’d prefer to buy your own.
Insider tip: If you aren’t already PADI® certified, there is no better time for you and the kids to become certified than during your Beaches vacation. The attentive staff at Beaches will help you go from certification to the ocean in no time!
There will be fun options to entertain your kids everywhere they look - including the Xbox Play Lounge. Here, kids can play their favorite Xbox games or try new ones with their friends in a fun zone with unlimited free play for kids of all ages.
There’s always fun to be found dow in Trenchtown! This popular hang-out spot at Beaches lets kids play arcade games like electronic basketball, laser hockey, and more. Your kids will also be able to jam to the latest tunes on Sirius Satellite Radio by way of Trench Town’s state-of-the-art sound system. In Trenchtown, kids will be able to have fun with friends (including watching movies on a huge flat-screen TV), as well as immerse themselves in a zone that reflects the urban culture of Jamaica, down to the concert posters and graffiti murals on the walls.
Teens will love partying at Club Liquid where they can let loose and have some fun in a supervised environment. This upbeat spot has all the bells and whistles of a regular nightclub and turns into an adults-only dance bar once the teens are all danced out.
Beaches all-inclusive accommodations will place you in the lap of luxury, in a way that’s practical for a family traveling with children. Whatever the size of your family, there’ll be a suite and service level to suit your needs - from luxury to concierge to butler level. Families looking for a more exclusive experience will love the butler service at Beaches, and the extra pair of hands will come in handy for booking excursions, getting your restaurant reservations in order, and accommodating any other requests.
Insider tip: If you have your heart set on a butler suite, you should bear in mind that they are only available at Beaches Negril and Beaches Turks & Caicos. You can compare Beaches Resorts before you go to find the right resort and accommodation for you and your family.
One of the most enticing aspects of an all-inclusive vacation is the prospect of being able to have your fill of the most delectable treats and meals without thinking about the price tag. Better than your average all-inclusive resort, Beaches offers multiple gourmet restaurants at each property, and also includes casual and kid-friendly dining options. Whatever you’d like to eat is sure to be available, as Beaches restaurants serve cuisine from around the world, including Italian, Japanese Teppanyaki, Caribbean, Tex-Mex, and more.
