Sometimes parents can end up feeling like they need a vacation from their vacation. Family trips can have you always on the go and can be completely exhausting.

Enter Curtain Bluff, the Caribbean getaway that has mastered the careful balancing act of the perfect family getaway. There's plenty here for hammock lovers ready for a lazy day and those looking for endless excitement.

Curtain Bluff has everything you could possibly need. From beautiful beaches to delicious restaurants to family-friendly activities, it's all available right on the property and, best of all, included in the price. But for families looking for even more adventure, the gorgeous island of Antigua is right out your back door ready for exploration. Walk along the Lookout Trail up to Shirley Heights for unspoiled views, kayak and snorkel your way around the island on an ecotour, or head out on a zip lining canopy tour for a thrill.

For those who want total relaxation, there's nothing better than lying under palm trees and watching the gentle aqua waves roll in as you sip on a refreshing drink that's hand-delivered to you. And Curtain Bluff offers guests the choice of two private beaches, so you never have to fight a crowd and can switch up your beach scenery depending on your mood. Meanwhile, the resort also offers plenty for go-getters looking to hit the water and pack in a full day. Head out in a kayak or balanced on a paddle board, try out waterskiing, or go below the waves on a snorkeling or scuba diving experience.

Rooms with a View...and Plenty of Space

Choose a beach front room with golden sands right outside your door or opt for a Cliff Suite for sweeping views of Grace Bay Beach and beyond. No matter what your preference, Curtain Bluff has plenty of space for the whole family. It features multi-bedroom suites, rooms that can be linked together and can even easily accommodate large groups of eight or more. So go ahead and plan that multi-gen escape or family reunion—you'll still feel relaxed after you start your day with breakfast out on your room patio or take a quick dip in a private plunge pool no matter how big a crew you bring.

Amazing Kids' Programs...and Family Bonding Time

Curtain Bluff's Kids Club is no dingy room with a TV and coloring books. From becoming mini mixologists learning to shake up mocktails to chocolate making to playing games with new-found friends, there's a good chance the kids will actually be begging you to go back. And if mom and dad are hoping for a romantic dinner alone, babysitting services are also available for the night. But there's still plenty to experience together and the resort puts an emphasis on creating special family moments. Beyond all the included activities like windsailing and basketball perfect for the whole gang to enjoy together, parents with young travelers with early bedtimes can still enjoy dinner together thanks to the early dinners served just for them. The resort also makes it easy for everyone to make lifelong friends thanks to the weekly cocktail hour where you can mingle with and meet the other guests.

Tennis with the Pros...and Just for Fun

For tennis enthusiasts, there's no better place to stay. With four championship hard courts and four resident pros, acing that serve has never been easier. Take a private or family lesson to master that top spin or to get the basics down if you're a beginner. Or, if you're just looking for some laid-back fun, grab a racquet from the Pro Shop and hit on your own—the courts are even lit for night play so you can hit backhands from dawn to dusk into the evening.

Cleansing Spa Treatments...and Invigorating Fitness Classes

Complete heavenly bliss is found at the Curtain Bluff spa. Start and end your treatments in the picturesque jacuzzi located on the veranda overlooking the sea. After a massage or facial, there's nothing better than dining on light bites and taking in the view, soaking up every last ounce of relaxation. But for those who prefer to be cleansed via sweating it out, the resort offers yoga, muscle toning and Pilates classes. Not to mention that the tennis, squash and basketball courts are all great places to get a workout in. And if you're someone that enjoys a little bit of everything, there's no reason you can't swing in a hammock under the Caribbean rays one day and hit the waterskis the next.
