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 a top notch choice for families, as this is its specialty. This north coast location is worthy of praise for the inclusion of vacation nannies for its guests. Each family's vacation nanny is present from morning to late afternoon, with a small fee for availability after 4pm. The nanny can take care of a host of things, especially monitoring children during activities so that Mom and Dad can relax.
At Franklin D, you can relax in any one of the 76 large suites and boardwalk dining choices. The kids will truly love the magic shows, and there is evening entertainment for adults with fire eaters and dancers. Included in the activity list are glass bottom boat rides, bike rides, windsurfing, tennis and power walks for the adults as well as kayaking.
The Half Moon Resort is really about as good as it gets when it comes to families. Located in Montego Bay, just 10 minutes away from the airport, this accommodation is free for children under twelve when they are rooming with adults. Furthermore, anyone under the age of twelve gets half off of 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.
