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 at 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 by offering authentic foods, music and games so kids can get a real taste of the island’s spirit.

The all-suite hotel features 161 junior- and one-bedroom suites, plus the option for connecting rooms, so there’s plenty of space for the whole gang.

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. Plus, kids will especially love the new ice cream parlor, 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-motorized 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 lazily lap 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 vacationers to still get individual privacy. And multiple pools, the beach just steps from your room and activities galore make playtime fun for the whole family.

Tamarind offers complimentary inclusions the whole family will love. Start the day off with a hearty breakfast where kids eat free all summer long, then make your way to the beach to explore complimentary watersports, the Kids & Teens Club + Family Lounge, daily family activities and the beach & pool ambassador service.

The interactive Kids Club features engaging activities for all ages with arts and crafts, baking, pool games and exhilarating daily activities and excursions.
