Help!!! 2 teens




Need to book a all-inclusive holiday for my husband two teens and I. The resort needs to be newish and have good teen programs. The teens are 17 and 13. My son 13 loves sports and needs a ton of them. My daughter loves to party and spend time with friends (I know parents its a nightmare), so there has to be somewhere for her to hangout with other teenagers. The hubby and I would love it if the resort had golf and tennis and it would be nice if they had lessons for the kids. We have been to Jamaica, Mexico, and Antigua before and would like to try somewhere new. We donít have a price limit. A new technology savvy place is vital and it has to be a larger resort, and preferably not have all of the rooms in one big building. Food doesnít really matter it would be nice if it was eatable, but if worst comes to worst we can go to a restaurant in the area. Anyways if anyone has any suggestions it would be really appreciated!!! Thanks Ashley

Boy this is a tough one. Most of the resorts with all the amenities you seek that we have visited have not seemed to have active teen programs. I have an almost 15 year old and a 10 year old. The best vacation I have found for keeping them entertained in groups their own ages is a cruise. This is because most large cruise ships have teen and kids clubs and activities geared to them. You might check out Club Med and some of the other large AI chains which usually have constant activities. Another key issue is when you are planning to go -- if it's a holiday time period there's a greater chance of them meeting lots of kids their own ages.

A cruise is a great suggestion.

Also check out Beaches in turks and Caicos. Tons of water activities-even an XBOX arcade-lots of other teens around to meet, even their own disco. Plus the most beautiful water you'll ever lay eyes on-great water excursions too.

We did Beaches Turks & Caicos. Its a big resort so lots of kids of all ages. Plenty of activities for teenagers although my teen daughter didn't want to be bothered and chose to stick by us the whole time.
Pluses: Big Resort, near airport, new, okay food, big variety
Minuses: Fairly expensive for what you get(everything imported),little to do on island which is nothing but a rock anyways(stay at resort). Not the friendliest islanders(go to Jamaica for that)

Thankyou so much for all of the replies I have looked into cruises in the past and unfortunatly for this trip a cruise dosent work because I plan to fly out after a week and leave the kids and husband at the resort for another week. The club meds are all nice and the beaches turks and caicos is beautiful but if anyone has some other suggestions for i would really to find a place that is unique.

Almond Beach Resort in Barbados sounds like it has everything you require for yourselves and your teen offspring. On premises golf and tennis plus loads of water activities.
