Here’s our top picks of the best family-friendly hotels in Jamaica:
Beaches Negril Resort & Spa
This resort is a paradise for the whole family, with luxurious family suites and 7 miles of golden sandy beaches. Beaches Resorts have a special partnership with Sesame Street, so there’s always fun themed adventures happening for the kids to enjoy. There’s kids’ entertainment day and night and an Xbox lounge for those who couldn’t bear to leave their console behind.
The Beaches Resorts are the first resort company in the world to be declared an Advanced Certified Autism Center (ACAC). They provide fantastic autism-friendly kids camps to ensure everyone can get involved. They even have Julia, a Sesame Street character who is a sweet and curious 4-year old with autism.
The whole family will find something to do with plenty of land and water sports available on the private beach. While the kids are enjoying the water park and having the time of their lives, you can relax in the spa or cool off in one of the four pools. The resort is all inclusive so the whole family can choose when and where they’d prefer to eat. There’s 9 restaurants to choose from all of which have a children’s menu available, if the kids’ buffet isn’t their style. There’s also an all-day gelato bar offering 50 different toppings – luckily it’s proven that calories don’t count on holiday.
Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa
This resort is ideally located between two of the most popular tourist areas and has earned the bragging rights of having the largest pool in Jamaica. You’ll have the option to eat in a new location every night with 10 restaurants to choose from, including the Lotus House, which specialises in Asian cuisine.
There’s miniature golf, kids’ clubs and a water park to keep the children busy. Hire a bike and spend the day exploring with the family. For the more adventurous ones, take advantage of the amazing water sports, or compete in a ‘friendly’ game of tennis. While spending an afternoon zooming across the glittering ocean on a catamaran is great for some, there’s plenty of space to chill and relax too. You can also use the facilities of the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort, if you fancy a change of scenery.
Sunset Beach Resort, Spa & Waterpark and the Oasis at Sunset
You’re given the ultimate all-inclusive experience that gives kids (and big kids) everything they need at their fingertips at this resort. If they want to try their hand at snorkelling, you’re in the right place. This resort is surrounded by Montego Bay Marine Park, Jamaica’s first fully underwater national park. It offers some of the best diving and snorkelling experiences in the world. After a day of exploring and enjoying the amazing food, gather the whole family together to watch a movie on the beach and create memories to last a lifetime. There’s a great team of entertainers with a full schedule of activities day and night. So, while the kids are occupied, take some time for yourself and relax by the pool, enjoy a signature cocktail or treat yourself to a massage at the spa.
