If travelling with the whole family sounds like more work than fun, you need to hit up an all-inclusive this year. All inclusive resorts offer the best of all possible worlds for families of all sizes, and there’s so much more than just the food and drinks provided. There are, of course, the incredible pools and beaches and the variety of dining options to suit all tastes, from casual buffets to formal à la carte and gourmet experiences. But then there are also all the land and water sports and activities for all ages that are typically included at no extra charge. Finally, there are the family-friendly shows and other evening entertainment that lasts long past the kids’ bedtimes to make sure everyone has a great time. We looked for the best of all these features for this roundup of the best sunny spots to take the entire family in 2017.
It’s always nice to go to a brand spanking new resort and this five-star just opened in November 2016 in Montego Bay. We love the multitude of food options – the resort has 11 different restaurants, including seven à la carte options with diverse types of cuisine for all appetites. But the feature the kids will lose their minds over? There’s an on-site water park with waterslides for guests of all ages and a splash pad for younger kids. There’s also a lazy river the whole family will love, plus tennis courts as well as kids and teen adventure clubs.
