So it’s time to pack up the kids and head out for the annual (or every few years) family vacation. You’re looking for something that will allow you to hang out as a family, but you’re also hoping to find a place that will allow you some couple time without the kids.
A cruise might sound tempting, but those tight quarters may be a little too much family togetherness. There’s always visiting the in-laws, but that isn’t really a vacation, is it?
You’re looking for something new…adventurous…maybe tropical and beachy. Why not consider an all-inclusive resort.
The cool thing about an all-inclusive resort, if it’s truly all-inclusive, is that you pay one price and everything is included: your room, airfare, food, drinks and activities at the hotel. When you arrive at the airport, someone’s waiting to pick you up; when you get to the resort, you can pretty much lock your wallet away in your room’s safe until it’s time to start buying souvenirs.
There are always optional add-ons that cost more; maybe your family wants to do a horseback riding excursion, your husband wants to go deep sea fishing, and you’d like to get a massage at the spa. But it’s a lot easier to budget for a vacation if you know that it’s going to cost you X dollars, and if you have more, you can do additional things.
A really family friendly, all-inclusive resort would be one from Beaches. They have resorts in Jamaica and Turks and Caicos. They offer plenty of things to keep the kids busy like specifically designed, kid-friendly pools, activities, a day camp for when you need a little time away, waterparks, and more.
The menus also offer kid-friendly foods so you don’t have to be concerned that your picky eaters will go hungry. Beaches is also a proud sponsor of Sesame Street, so there are performances and activities based on Sesame Street characters.
For you? Spas. Premium drinks while lounging by the pool. Golf. Water sports. Gourmet dining. Rooms and suites that are big enough for the family. A relaxing atmosphere.
Another well-known, all-inclusive resort isÂ Club Med. It offers the same types of activities and services as Beaches does. However, while Beaches only has resorts in Jamaica and Turks and Caicos, Club Med has locations in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Guadelope, and the US.
Those are just two lines of resorts that offer all-inclusive deals – but there are so many more. If you are considering an all-inclusive, you should check out this article on tips for booking an all-inclusive vacation so you know exactly what to consider!
