Fifteen Great Family Resorts
Check out top all-inclusive and other resorts that offer excellent activities, kids programs, and other features for families.
All Inclusive Family Resorts
Parents love the convenience of one-price-includes all. Kids can sample activities (or not), help themselves to drinks when they please, and have fun at the kids club. Many resorts offer infant and toddler care, and teen programs as well. Most families head to all inclusives in Mexico and the Caribbean, but there are choices within the US as well.
For Families with Special Needs
Families with the daily extra challenges of caring for special-needs kids probably need the rest and relaxation of a resort vacation more than anyone, yet they may have a hard time finding a place to go. Fortunately, progress is being made on such fronts as wheelchair accessibility.
For Families of Five or More
Families who have three kids really appreciate those places where the whole gang can be accommodated in one guest-room. Some of the family resorts listed here have rooms for larger families too.
Types of Kids Clubs
These days, virtually any resort (and many hotels too) offers a "kids club" -- but what type? Kids clubs can vary greatly. Some offer friendly child-care in one or two rooms; other resorts have major kids' centers with multiple programs for different ages, infant care, creative activities, and / or outstanding facilities.
