We could tell you that visiting a resort is like being in paradise. But it’s more than that. Ten reasons are not enough because Caribbean resorts are synonymous with relaxation, beaches, family moments, pleasure, and above all, endless fun. Put on your beach hat and bikini because we’re about to get started.
10 reasons why staying at a family resort is a great idea
Fun for EVERYONE:
A resort is more than a symbol for getting away, beaches and warm weather. It also represents fun for everyone (not just kids). Although the special entertainment programmes like Barcy Club at the Barceló Bávaro Palace hotel in the Dominican Republic are created for children, everyone else also needs a holiday. While kids enjoy their workshops and games, parents and teens can play a fun round of golf at The Lakes golf course, relax by the pool or on the beach, and enjoy an exotic meal at any of the resort’s seven restaurants.
There’s no need to keep track of everything:
The main goal of a holiday is to completely forget about your worries. Multitasking minds need to stop thinking about everything or trying to do several things at once. Sign up for an all-inclusive package that’s perfect for a family holiday during any month of the year!
Sleep more than eight hours straight, take a nap under a coconut tree or lounge in a hammock as you watch the world go by, all under the warm sun for that perfect tan that looks fantastic.
Keep learning (without realising it):
A person’s intelligence has a magnetic effect, which is why we should take care of it. The Occidental Jandía Mar family hotel in Fuerteventura has created an entertainment programme inspired by the innovative theory of multiple intelligences (Happy Minds). This programme is revolutionising children’s experiences with specific activities for all ages between 4 and 15 years based on music, art, performances and more.
Teaching the importance of protecting nature:
Who doesn’t love to be surrounded by nature? The people in the Mexican state of Ixtapa are joining forces to protect one of the most endangered animal species: turtles. Everyone can help baby turtles by protecting the eggs. The Barceló Ixtapa hotel happens to be located near the beach and a marine phenomenon that you shouldn’t miss.
A family that travels together stays together:
Don’t tell them about it; experience it together. No one should be left behind at home. Building sandcastles on the beach with your kids, playing a game of volleyball with the entire family, dinners with shows and endless laughs help build stronger family ties.
Eating international foods at a single location:
Staying at a family resort also gives you the chance to try new foods and traditional dishes. It’s extremely important to foster a food culture from a young age so kids learn to eat everything and avoid being swayed by appearances. A balanced lifestyle involves a varied diet as well as sports every now and then. At the Barceló Maya Grand Resort in the Riviera Maya, you’ll be able to try the best international buffets so you can fill up and experience everything.
Trying new sports:
Imagine signing up for introductory scuba diving lessons, seeing and swimming with all types of sea animals as they tickle your feet whilst having a great time with the entire family. Sports are a special way to feel good because the endorphins produced by the body provide natural pain relief. At the Barceló Maya Caribe hotel in the Rivera Maya, you’ll be able to try stand-up paddle board yoga. Pretty original, huh?
Life is an adventure:
Everyone has their idea of the perfect holiday. Some people prefer to relax on a hammock and others like to try out new sports and explore every hidden corner of a destination. This is all available at the best family resorts.
For people who love to delve into cultural aspects:
Travel leads to discovery, and discovery leads to knowledge. When we go on a trip, we become different people than before we left. Destinations change our perspectives and teach us about other cultures we are not accustomed to.
