Top Family AND Adult-Friendly All-Inclusive Resorts!
Planning a family vacation (as much as it is exciting), can be a little difficult. Aside from finding a great resort that’ll keep little ones entertained, it’s also worthwhile to find a property that caters to adults as well. After all, it is OUR vacation too! I was beyond thrilled to discover that you really CAN have the best of both worlds!
When you travel with kids, you don’t want to sacrifice any part of your experience. Here are five great resorts that offer the perfect balance of fun, adventure, relaxation and luxury for everyone!
Foodies in the family will rave about this resort’s culinary collection. The property’s trademark, Karisma Gourmet Inclusive Experience, offers nothing but the freshest ingredients and the best in service. For those looking for a little R&R, the resort’s Vassa Spa offers a little piece of serenity and relaxation. Aside from the usual spa services, the Vassa Spa also offers the Azulitos Spa Services, a fun and special service geared just for kids ages 5-17. What better way to bond than by sharing special little treatments with your little ones!
With an unreal water park (complete with water slides), the Dreams Playa Mujeres is a hub of fun for the young and young-at-heart. Outside offers a lively atmosphere; but the property’s interiors offer a tranquil retreat from the hustle and bustle. Plush accommodations and ultra-luxurious amenities really cater to adults just looking for some peace and tranquility.
We should give a round of applause to those who designed this brilliant resort. This property is cleverly laid out, with a lively family-friendly area on one end of the property and a quieter, adults-centric area in the other, making it a great choice for multi-generational travellers and family reunions.
This popular hotel chain recently expanded its properties to the stunning destination of Punta Cana. While the destination itself is notable for its quiet and relaxing atmosphere, the addition of these lively and fun resorts mean that guests are given the perfect balance of adventure and serenity. Perhaps what’s most notable with this property is the Splash Water Park, which can be conveniently accessed by all the RIU hotels.
Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta: This is great choice for adventurous families. Its close proximity to Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town and the Malecon Boardwalk makes it a great “home base” after a long day of exploring the city. Its quiet and semi-private location also provides a great retreat for those just looking to lay back.
