Features for Families

When we visited several years ago, we found this resort (then known as Starfish) to be a big, busy, sometimes noisy kind of place. Though this resort isn't exclusively for families, guests with kids were a major part of the clientele.

My boys (12 and 9) especially enjoyed the minigolf and trapeze, waterslide, and playing "pool in the pool". The rock-climbing wall was another novelty; reaching the top was a challenge for an athletic 12-year-old.

Pools: This resort has a family pool, a sports pool, and a kids' pool with 124' waterslide*. It also has an 83' long adult water slide.

Wee kids will enjoy a seaside playground with swings, and the gentle, sandy beach. Also nice at the beach: guests can wade out to a little sandy island, with hammocks.

Kids Programs: A kids club takes kids up to age 12, including infants; activities are offered for several age groups, and teen activities are offered too. After-hours baby-sitting is also available.

Watersports include Hobie Cat sailing, windsurfing, kayaking (all with instruction), glass-bottom boat rides and banana boat rides. Scuba and jet skiing are offered at an extra cost.

Land fun includes tennis (with instruction), minigolf, and a basketball court. The Circus School activities include trapeze, trampoline class, juggling, and a rock-climbing wall. The kids club gets time on the trapeze and tramp.

Entertainment, Meals: As at most all inclusive resorts, guests can expect daily activities, multiple restaurants, and and evening entertainment such as live bands or theme dinners. Night-owls can head to Bubbles Disco (which also has earlier hours for kids and teens) or to a late-night piano bar.

The buffet restaurant serves three meals a day and the a la carte restaurant choices are Munahana, for Japanese dishes, and Casablanca (with dress code) for Italian and Jamaican specialties. The resort also has a poolside grill.
