We alternate bringing them and not. They love Jamaica, the beaches and water for sure but also the country and hanging out with Jamaican kids. That gives them a different perspective on things. It's a learning experience for them for sure. We have never done the AI/kids club thing, we generally travel and/or stay at a small hotel or cottage where there is a cultural experience to be had.

We also enjoy sending them to the grandparents and taking off on our own.

If either of the kids has a medical condition, think carefully about what island...if my kid had a chronic illness taht could require hospitalization I'd not take them to Jamaica, or probably some other islands as well, because the serious medical care just isn't there.

Consider also how picky they are about eating (will they experiment and try new foods?), how well they travel (are they easily bored? get car/airsick?).

It's a personal call, has to be.
