Guest Post: Beaches Family Resorts

Have you
ever thought about taking an all-inclusive family vacation? Two of the most
popular family vacation options, a cruise and an all-inclusive resort, have
many amenities in common. With an all inclusive resort, active families will be
able to pick and choose a variety of activities for just one price.
For over 15
years, Beaches Family Resorts has been named a top destination for families
vacationing in the Caribbean. These resorts have been awarded the top spot by
Trip Advisor, Parents Magazine and Travel + Leisure for luxury travel.
Kids can
have the freedom to enjoy a vacation of their own while the parents relax.
You’ll find more inclusions than any other all inclusive resort. More choices
to enjoy your time together – from every land and water sport under the sun, to
anytime gourmet dining at up to 20 specialty restaurants, activities and
amenities for all ages, and luxurious family-friendly suites.

There are
currently three Beaches Resorts – Negril, Jamaica, Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Turks
and Caicos Islands.  Families of all ages will experience the vacation of
their dreams.

With a
45,000 square foot waterpark, a 12 mile beach and 4 distinct villages –
Italian, French, Key West and Caribbean.  Beaches Turks and Caicos is an all-inclusive
resort that truly has something for everyone. Teens to toddlers will find
something for them here at this magnificent resort.

Leave your
worries at the door when you step into Beaches Negril. This all inclusive resort is
located on Negril’s famous 7-Mile Beach. This magnificent beach offers
turquoise waters, soft sands and breathtaking views. Enjoy everything from a
beachfront waterpark to a gourmet meal, it is all here for you at Beaches
Negril.
Beaches
Ocho Rios
is
the perfect vacation for active families. Whether you want to enjoy the endless
ocean activities, from snorkeling and diving to ocean kayaking, or you want to
challenge your family to a friendly competition on the links – it is all
waiting for you at Beaches Ocho Rios.
From tots
to teens, Beaches offers programs for all ages. All nannies and Kids Camp
staffers are members of the International Nannies Association. Each nanny must
meet the minimum requirement of 2,000 hours of child-care services.
Additionally nannies have been trained in safety, nutrition and child
development. The first time I left my youngest son in the nursery he was only 8
months old.
You will
never be charged extra for the programming. Activities include: Pirate Island
Waterpark, Xbox Play Lounge, Kids Scuba Program, Junior Golf Club and Sesame
Street meet and greets, stage shows, parades and character meals.

inclusive vacations offer active families a chance to pick and choose many
activities for just one price.
