It’s hard to believe that the holidays are right around the corner. What better time to start thinking and planning your holiday vacation with the family.
With such wide range of destinations and resorts to choose from, how can you pick the right one for your family? We asked our team members to recommend some of their favourite family-friendly resorts. Here is what some of them have to say:
Our Co-President, Sean's Pick: Barcelo Maya Colonial
"I love this family-friendly resort because it has a great beach, nice sand, great areas for snorkelling and calm swimming areas for kids. They also have this great pier where you can have your hand at feeding fish - it’s a fun and interactive thing to do with the entire family. They also have huge kids pools in different areas of the property, with something different offered in each section (waterparks, waterslides and a wave rider to name a few). Though this isn’t related specifically to kids, the resort also has a huge gym and spa (great for parents looking for a little rest from the action)!"
Our Family Vacation Specialist, Carmen's Pick: Beaches Turks and Caicos
"Beaches Turks & Caicos is an amazing and reputable resort for families in a stunning location with the highest quality accommodations and fantastic food. They really go the extra mile for kids with some of the largest waterparks in the Caribbean (11 gigantic slides), family beach parties and visits from some of their favourite Sesame Street characters like Elmo and Big Bird!"
Our Vacation Specialist, Eric's Pick: Now Amber Puerto Vallarta
"I’ve experienced this resort first-hand and could tell it really caters to groups as I saw many families and kids enjoying everything the property had to offer! This is a high-rise resort offering great views of the Pacific coast. The property is cleverly laid out making it perfect for families who are travelling with little ones, as the location of restaurants and pools are within easy walking distance. With the charming Malecon boardwalk just a quick taxi ride away, this resort is a great home base for anyone looking for adventure both inside and outside of the property."
Our Destination Wedding Specialist, Christine's Pick: Hyatt Ziva Cancun
"With 2 stunning beaches, tons of pool areas, 9 restaurants (including a candy shop!) and great service, this resort is my favourite for all ages. It is within easy walking distance to Cancun’s malls, shops, bars and discos, yet it also has complete serenity on the property. The resort is post-card perfect for family gatherings and even a great place to host weddings where you have guests of all ages."
Our Adventure and Group Travel Specialist, Kelsea's Pick: Sandos Caracol
"The Sandos Caracol is a great resort, especially for families who are seeking thrills and adventures. They have a water park for all ages, cultural and environmental programs and an animal sanctuary on site. There’s also a great variety of activities that offer one-of-a-kind experiences, like bike riding on site through the Mayan ruins."
Our Vacation Specialist, Ryan's Pick: Crown Paradise Club Puerto Vallarta
"This is a great choice for families because of their kid-friendly amenities. The Crown Paradise Club is situated right on the beach but it also has a fantastic water park for the kids. The accommodations are perfect for groups - they have wonderful family rooms with bunk beds and trundle beds for the kids. The added bonus is that this property also has an adults-only area, so vacationers of all generations have the added option of travelling together as a group!"
