Properties that feature kitchens and possibly multiple bedrooms are always suitable for families. However, family resorts mean also those resorts that actually feature scheduled activities for the kids in the form of a kid's club, or teens' club, or a day care center. The resorts often limit kids in a room to one or two at the most.
Choosing a family all-inclusive vacation package, ask about whether they have something like Kids Club, where your child will enjoy a variety of activities in the professional caring hands of their Kids Club Coordinator. For example, enjoy garden walks, dance lessons, water balloons and many different types of active games and races. For quieter moments there should be board games, movies, arts and crafts.
Some resorts do not have a children's program, but the shallow water of the beach make it perfect for children and many lazy days can be spent snorkeling on the barrier reef just off shore.
Carefully choose among hotels, which can accommodate families and specifically cater to the needs of children, offering planned children's activities, day care centers and a wide variety of land and water sports for every age. Resorts know that keeping your children entertained on vacation is important. That is why a lot of family friendly resorts and hotels are now incorporating children's programs into your family's stay.
Some resorts even have a children's camp located near the hotel, where the parents are staying. In such camp your children will enjoy a wide variety of activities, including arts and crafts, sports, movies, board games, beach games, bingo, snacks and more.
Sparkling water and sunny weather are musts for any great beach. If you want not just a beach, but a new discovery, consider the following favorite beach vacations from around the world, whether you want to explore the sights or just people-watch while you sunbathe in an exotic locale.
There are resorts, where there is no charge for all inclusive children 12 and under, like, for example, The Holiday Inn Sunspree Aruba, which has suites that can accommodate up to five people. This is a great option for families who don't want to pay for two rooms and have their children close. There is also a private babysitting service available for daytime or evening for a nominal fee for those parents, who need some downtime as well. There is a Kid's Club on property and an Activity Center. Supervised programs such as Kid's Specialty Nights, Sand-castle building, movies and excursions are also arranged.
The Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino is another one of Aruba's hot spots for families as well. They offer an excellent kid's program with daily supervised activities. The children's program is available to children from 5 to 12 years of age. During the day, the program offers ongoing supervised watersports and games. There is also entertainment and activities offered to the children in the evening.
In addition to the children's program, the resort also has the "Kid's Center." Children can enjoy board games, crafts, movies and more. There is no charge for these activities and supervision is provided. Baby sitting services for children under 5 years of age are also available.
