With a total of seven properties on the island – all located on prime beachfront stretches, with unique lagoon- and lap-style pools, and boasting exceptional service – if you’re making the trip to beautiful Barbados, then you want to stay at Elegant Hotels. For families looking to enjoy laid-back island life, two resorts in particular beckon.

Turtle Beach

If you seek an all-inclusive retreat, Turtle Beach excels when it comes to offering family-friendly amenities. Located on the lively south coast of Barbados, it lets visitors get a pulse on the energy of the vibrant surrounding community. The property ties in local island experiences with your stay, by offering authentic foods, music and games, so kids can get a real taste of the island’s spirit. The hotel features 161 suites – including junior and one-bedroom options – plus connecting rooms are available, so that there’s plenty of space for the whole family. Kids and parents can enjoy pool time at the dedicated children’s splash pool, the two swimming pools, and the whirlpool.

With three restaurants, two bars and a coffee shop, taste buds of all types will be pleased. Kids will especially love the new Freeze Ice Cream Parlour, perfect for grabbing a sweet treat on a hot day.

There’s no shortage of activities to keep the family entertained at Turtle Beach. Learn to sail Hobie Cats (small sailing catamarans) with the on-site Aqua School teachers, relax with beach time, tee off at the golf course, or enjoy complimentary non-motorised water sports.

The Flying Fish Kids Club will keep youngsters entertained all day with outdoor playgrounds and indoor games and toys, and a variety of daily activities for both children and adults are always available. Kids can even enjoy authentic Bajan cuisine and activities with a program challenging them to become Honorary Bajan Adventurers. Parents can also sneak in some time for romance with complimentary daily golf or a romantic Italian dinner at Asiago’s, the adults-only dining experience.


Situated on the Platinum West Coast of Barbados on a picturesque stretch of beach where turquoise waves lap lazily at the white sand, Tamarind makes it easy to bliss out. Experience Caribbean charm with a Mediterranean twist at this chic property.

With suites and connecting rooms, Tamarind makes it easy for large families or multi-generational groups to still get privacy. With multiple pools, the stunning beach just steps from your room, and activities galore, playtime is fun for the whole family. The interactive Kids Club hosts activities for all ages, with arts and crafts, baking, pool games, and exhilarating daily activities and excursions.

Children can also keep busy with tubing and waterskiing, jumping on the oversized water trampoline, or with a movie-night under the stars. Parents traveling with babies will love the amenities like in-room cots and the ability to pre-order baby essentials like nappies and wipes.

Meanwhile, older kids can meet new friends in the Teen Lounge, enjoy their own special dining options and get adventurous with teen activities just for them. Parents can leave their cares behind with a well-deserved trip to the boutique spa and adults-only relaxation pool. At Elegant Hotels, creating family memories is as easy as it is fun.
