All Inclusive Resorts
I'm trying to find the best all inclusive resort kids clubs. I used to focus on the best beaches, bars, and spas, but oh how the times have changed now that I have two toddlers. As they grow up, I want to know where the best kids clubs are so they can have a good time in a safe environment while I try to recapture my youth at the beach or spa.
My criteria for ranking the best kids clubs come down to two basic factors. 1.) The security of my kids and 2.) The enjoyment the kids have while being in the kids club. The nice thing is that there are many all inclusive resorts catering to families and children. This wasn't always the case.
Beaches and Club Med get special mention here because not only do they have very good kids clubs, but they also extend the age limit with special programs and facilities for teenagers. Just as kids under four deserve some attention, the kids over 12 (who often have no programs at other resorts) are in need of lots of acitvities and opportunities to meet other teenagers.
The Azul Sensatori, located just south of Cancun, has a fantastic program for kids ages 6 months to 12 years old. I might be partial to this resort since my kids are still young. Many resorts don't have programs for children under 4 years of age. The "Azulitos" program is included in the all inclusive package. There is a nice splash park and kiddie pool along with numerous rooms full of toys and activities designed for specific age ranges. The program is available both during the day and in the evening during dinner time.
The Franklyn D Resort & Spa in Jamaica has the famous "nanny" program. A nanny is assigned to each family upon arrival to help with anything that might be needed. This includes child care and babysitting, but also includes concierge services as the nannies go out of their way to make sure each family is having a good itme.
Dreams is an upscale all inclusive family resort with a very good Explorers Club For Kids 3 - 12 years of age. Parents get a cell phone that allows them to check in with their kids at any time. Kids will be annoyed with the calls form parents as they splash in the kids water park, watch movies on the beach, have campouts, etc...
