Luxe Caribbean Resorts with Kids
Ensuring equal parts amusement for the children and indulgence for the parents is the key to a successful family holiday. These three resorts strike an ideal balance in different ways.

Curtain Bluff, Antigua
An elegant boutique resort positioned between two beaches on Antigua’s south coast, Curtain Bluff offers a plethora of activities for the young and energetic, and more than a little luxury for overworked adults.
A full programme of kids’ activities, along with a jungle gym, sandbox and games room packs in the entertainment for little ones, allowing parents to relax in a shady hammock, or succumb to the delights of a rejuvenating spa treatment.
Tennis, squash and a full range of watersports are all included in the rate, as are meals at the two excellent restaurants. Enjoy a romantic dinner à deux, while a babysitter takes care of the children, and then drift off to the sound of crashing surf.
It’s non-stop fun in the sun for guests of all ages at Beaches in Negril, Jamaica. An all-inclusive resort with a water park and exceptional kids’ club situated on the sparkling sands of 7 Mile Beach, it’s a destination where parents can truly enjoy the vacation as much as their kids.
Tots are well cared for at the nursery, younger kids have endless beach and indoor activities to choose from, and teens enjoy their own DJ Academy, Xbox lounge and a games arcade, freeing up adults to go scuba diving, visit the spa or relax with a cocktail at one of several swim up bars.
Escape into a world of fantasy at Atlantis, Paradise Island, a lavish resort and theme park in one convenient package.
Water-based fun for all the family comes in the form of a 141-acre waterpark with slides, rapids and rivers, a world-class aquarium, a dolphin enclosure and 11 different pools. When different generations want to seek out their own style of entertainment there are story-telling trees and tea parties for the tykes, dance clubs and movie theatres for older kids, and golf, shopping and casinos for parents.
