Beaches Resorts: More of Everything in All-Inclusive Family Vacations - Family Traveller (USA)

Beaches Resorts are the world’s most awarded family all-inclusive Caribbean hotels. They’re also the most generous, with a rate that includes just about everything — right up to all the water sports, which is particularly indulgent considering that Beaches has the largest water sport operation in the Caribbean. And if you dive, you're in luck. Scuba is included in a Beaches all-inclusive vacation, too, and PADI recently ranked Beaches as one of the top five dive operations in the Western Hemisphere.

But if that doesn’t make a family vacation in Jamaica or Turks & Caicos — with nothing to think about except having fun — sound tempting enough, there’s more. Here are eight of the top ways an all-inclusive Beaches vacation offers more of everything for everyone in the family.

1/8 More Thrills for Families at Pirate Island Waterparks

Beaches Resorts have the best waterparks in the entire Caribbean. Forget half-hearted chutes and a few inflatables, Pirate Island Waterparks are the real deal. For a start, they’re huge: think 45,000 square feet and counting. Lazy Rivers meander for up to 650 feet. Slides are satisfyingly tall and twisty. And new thrills are being added all the time. Plus, the Pirate Island Waterpark in Turks & Caicos is the only resort with a surf simulator, so kids can hang-10 any time without having to wait around for waves.

Kids-only swim-up bars, 1950s-style diners and ice cream machines are just some of the cool refueling options that you can enjoy in between the slides, rides and rivers. And parents are welcome on Pirate Island, too. In fact, more than welcome. Chalk it up to Beaches knowing exactly how many great family memories revolve around their fabulous waterparks.
