Jamaica Family Resorts All Inclusive Advice

By Barbara Lee


It can be tough to find a vacation that appeals to every member of the family. While parents may wish some peace and quiet, kids prefer to run around and be entertained every waking hour. Budgeting for restaurants in a new town and catering for the sometimes selective palate of a child also can cause headaches. Travel to Jamaica family resorts all inclusive and these worries will disappear.

One of the most popular Caribbean islands, Jamaica has much to offer its visitors. Golden sands, rain forests, historic plantations and a host of sailing, snorkeling and other sports are just some of the adventures to be found here. On the north side of the pretty island there are hotels a-plenty hugging the shoreline from Ocho Rios to Negril through Runaway Bay and the famous Montego Bay.

Children may be excited about a vacation, but after hours of flying, the prospect of a longer boring coach trip can turn them into grumpy tired travelers. Careful planning can minimize the transfer time to resort as you can match your airport to your final destination. Most flights either land at Montego Bay in the north or the capital Kingston.

Each of the main holiday areas has attractions nearby so families wishing to explore the island should be able to find some activities without travelling too far. Should you wish to visit a particular beauty spot such as Dunn's River Falls, then you might want to look at hotels near Ocho Rios rather than Negril. Montego Bay area has the benefit of being central and close to the airport, but there are fewer options for accommodation than the more popular Negril.

All of the main tourist areas are situated on sandy beaches which offer guests an opportunity to try a myriad of water sports. Your hotel's website or brochure should list which are available and which are included in the cost of your stay. There may be some things which are only available at an extra charge.

The Caribbean is a great place to try scuba diving as the water is clear and warm and there is much to see under the waves. This is not normally included in hotel activities so would be an additional cost. You could also contact a local dive center before booking to check prices and availability.

Your budget will probably influence which hotel you pick in the resort area you have selected. Obviously facilities and quality of food will vary according to the price of the accommodation, but careful research can unearth bargains at hotels that have all the amenities you could wish for. Internet sites where previous customers describe their experience can be invaluable.

Nearly all properties will have something to keep the children happy; entertainers, kids club, water park and supervised activities. There are even a couple of hotels themed to a favorite kid's television program on the island. There are plenty of options for a perfect vacation in paradise where everyone has a great time.
