Looking for a nice family resort!

Hi!

We're thinking of taking a family vacation with 2 toddlers to a family resort in the Caribbean. Any suggestions?

TIA!
Cindy

Try checking out Beaches Negril (Jamaica). We are going there in May & have seen very positive posts on other message boards. They are an all inclusive with many children's activities & a special area for them. Definitely geared so the whole family will have fun.

Are you looking more into renting a condo, or want a hotel/resort with a kids program or babysitting.

Also, where are you flying from. I'm assuming you don't want to spend too long on a plane with toddlers.

Hyatt Hacienda Del Mar in Puerto Rico, Aruba Marriott Ocean Club, any of the condo resorts in Turks & Caicos.

I don't think you can do better than Beaches - either in Negril (which has a superior beach) or near Ocho Rios (called Beaches Boscobel). We've stayed at both several times, including with toddlers. It's all inclusive, which means even water sports. It's also well run with kids programs.

Or, you could try an all-suite Jamaica resort called Franklyn D. Resort, which is more like renting a condo but still has hotel style amenities.

Also, have you thought of Club Med? Several of them have programs and accommodations geared to baby-toddler families.

But we've never had better vacations than at Beaches. It's www.beaches.com.

They also have one in Turks Caicos, but we've never been there.
