Top All Inclusive Family Resort Jamaica Locations

By Evelyn Walls

Visiting the Caribbean for a family vacation is definitely a perfect way to create some life long memories. Relaxing and having fun in a slice of paradise with activities and treats for everyone will ensure that everyone gets the most out of the experience. Here is a list of the various kinds of all inclusive family resort Jamaica has to offer.

Beaches is the family counterpart to the well-known Sandals group. Two of these resorts exist in Jamaica - Beaches Boscobel and Beaches Negril. Boscobel is found on the north coast of Jamaica, about two hours away from Montego Bay after Ocho Rios. The other location, Negril, is on the west coast of the island.

Beaches Boscobel features a number of different programs for kids of all ages. Care for infants is available, which is extremely helpful to parents trying to get in a little quality time for themselves as well during the vacation, or even to spend some time with the older kids. Gaming centers only add to the fun and the partnership with Sesame Street means hours of fun and entertainment for the young ones. There are novelty pools, snorkeling adventures, scuba diving lessons and even golf for kids and adults alike.

Beaches Negril also partners with Sesame Street. This beautiful place is located on a legendary 7-mile beach with 1000 feet of shore to enjoy. Like its Boscobel counterpart, Negril also offers snorkeling and scuba diving, as well as snorkeling trips out on a boat to a coral reef. The location itself has water slides for the entire family to enjoy and also river pool.

The Franklin D Resort is special in that it caters specifically to families. Located on the north coast, what makes this resort special is the inclusion of a vacation nanny for every family that stays there. The vacation nanny is available from 9am to 4pm, but can stay on for an extra hourly fee into the evening. The nanny can accompany kids to resort activities so that parents can enjoy themselves as well.

At Franklin D, there is a total of 76 large suites available. Boardwalk dining adds to a wonderful ambiance and there is so much for the family to enjoy from magic shows for the kids to evening entertainment of dance and fire-eaters for the adults. Other activities include bike rides, glass bottom boat rides, tennis, windsurfing, kayaking and power walks for the adults.

The Half Moon Resort is the ultimate luxury accommodation for families. It is only 10 minutes drive away from the airport in Montego Bay. Kids under the age of 12 stay for free once they are sharing a room with adults, and they also get a 50% discount on all meals.

Half Moon offers superior rooms and private villas with up to seven bedrooms for guests to feel completely comfortable. Included in the all-inclusive Platinum Plan with a private villa is a private pool, cook and butler service, as well as a golf cart to navigate the resort's 400 acres. An Olympic-sized pool, 3 free-form pools, a Championship golf course, putting green and tennis courts put this location at the top of its game.
