All Inclusive Kids. What To Expect During Your All Inclusive Resort Vacation.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld joked that “there’s no such thing as ‘fun for the whole family.’”
It sounds like Seinfeld never traveled to an all inclusive kids friendly resort. Kids and all inclusive resorts are a great match. Here is what to expect during your all inclusive vacation for the kids.
A family friendly all inclusive affordable vacation combines a one price cost with a host of things to do that’s simple to plan for. When you’re traveling as a family, it’s hard to beat the simplicity of a resort vacation. All inclusive resorts have perfected a colorful menu of accommodations, amenities and activities to make everyone happy — including Mom and Dad, who can even grab some alone time thanks to kids’ programs.
Increasingly, all inclusive resorts are going after the family market. They have worked hard to match activities geared to all age groups.
Here is a partial list of activities that the Beaches chain, one of our favorite family all inclusive resorts, offers for the kids:
Vacation with Elmo & Friends
XBOX Game Oasis
Golf for kids in Jamaica
Huge water slides
Swim-up soda bar
Kids & Teens disco
Activities by age group
Self-serve soda machines
Self-serve soft ice-cream
Special kids menu
Teens are not left out at Beaches. They have their own special spaces and places to play it their way. From pizza bars to soda bars, to their own "nightclub" with karaoke, teens have their own scene all day and places to hang each evening.
Group water sports
karaoke & disco
The all-inclusive concept is a winning one for families, and kids learn its value early in their stay. They can have as many fruit smoothies as they want, and mom probably won’t say “no” because it’s already been included in the price. Ditto for food, rentals of non-motorized water toys, tennis, and other activities. Parents enjoy the fact that all drinks, children’s programs, taxes and gratuities, and evening entertainment are also included. It’s much easier to relax and enjoy the vacation knowing that final bill at checkout won’t come as an unwelcome surprise.
