Top Dining, Exciting Thrills and Relaxation in Turks and Caicos



The calm, crystal clear water, expansive white sand beaches and the Coral Gardens are some of the main attractions that lure travelers to the island of Turks and Caicos. It’s ranked one of the top ten best scuba diving destinations in the world.

This remote destination is ideal for an intimate wedding or a quiet, romantic honeymoon. Boutique resorts line the famous Grace Bay Beach, but there is one resort in this area that could be a destination all on its own—Beaches Turks & Caicos.

Voted by the World Travel Awards for 12 years total the “Caribbean’s Leading All-Inclusive Family Resort,” this property caters to families first with areas designed just for adults as well.

The resort is made up of five unique villages, each one distinctly different from next. The Caribbean and Seaside Villages provide a garden oasis for visitors; the Italian Village is for those who adore old-world charm; the French Village is a perfect mix of a Caribbean atmosphere with a touch of French inspiration, and the Key West Village is a laid-back area with beachfront villas.

No matter which area guests choose to stay in, they are welcome to explore all the villages throughout the vacation. Larger multi-generational families traveling together have no problem staying in the same place, as the Key West Village offers accommodations that hold up to 14 people.

From Bobby Dee’s, a kids restaurant inspired by a 1950’s diner, to Sky Lounge, a romantic rooftop restaurant serving ages 16 and older, and everything in between, guests can take their taste buds on a journey enjoying 21 dining options throughout their stay. There are also two food trucks available to eat at, Mr. Mac and Curls & Swirls.

In addition to the broad scope of cuisine available, there are also 14 bars with unlimited premium liquors, sodas and juices. Kids can enjoy cocktails made just for them at the swim-up bars.

There’s no way to enjoy all the adventurous activities this resort has to offer in one day. During a stay at Beaches Turks & Caicos, families have access to Pirates Island, a children’s waterpark right on the property.

This park consists of several waterslides, swim-up soda bars, water cannons, whirlpools and a 650-foot lazy river. The park also has a SurfStream Surf Simulator where guests of all ages can safely enjoy the thrill of riding the waves.

When families need a break from the sun, they can hit the Xbox Play Lounge, ride the Choo Choo Train or participate in activities with one of the Sesame Street characters, such as soccer time with Rosita, cookie baking with Cookie Monster or discovering treasures with Abby Cadabby.

If it’s time to split up for a few hours, the younger kids can enjoy a day at Kids Camp while the tweens hang out at Trench Town. Parents can choose to relax by the pool, enjoy a game of beach volleyball or a watersport on their own or maybe hit the Red Lane Spa for a few hours of peace and quiet.

Families looking for an exotic retreat that accommodates all ages will find it with a stay at Beaches Turks & Caicos. From top dining and exciting evening entertainment to unlimited watersports and activities, families will create lasting memories throughout their entire vacation.

Family Fun Abounds in Ocho Rios at Moon Palace Jamaica



All-inclusive resorts are an amazing option for families in search of the perfect shared getaway.

Parents looking for relaxation and a reprieve from daily pressures can certainly appreciate not having to sweat every individual expenditure while on vacation and instead settling on an up-front cost that allows adults and kids alike to go hog wild when they reach their destination.

At Moon Palace Jamaica, a Palace Resorts property situated near the celebrated seaside town of Ocho Rios, all-inclusive really means that it’s all covered, from luxurious accommodations and upscale amenities to world-class dining, 24-hour room service, minibar, premium satellite TV channels, wireless internet access, free calls within North America and a whole host of on-site activities designed to appeal to every age group.

The 700-room resort is located directly on Jamaica’s north coastal beach, where the sparkling Caribbean Sea virtually calls out to guests to come splash in its dazzling waters and warm themselves on the tropical sands.

With use of non-motorized watersports equipment included in their stay, kids and grown-ups might want to try boogie-boarding, snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking or sailing a Hobie cat as a family. Once the tribe has had their sand and saltwater for one day, there’s always more aquatic fun to be had at any of four family-friendly outdoor swimming pools.

The resort’s kids’ club, called the ‘Playroom,’ houses state-of-the-art activity spaces that cater to kids whose ages are four and up. They’ll stay entertained for hours in areas filled with building blocks, creativity areas, kitchen play area, ball pit, indoor playground, movies, video games and even a mini-stage to host kids’ karaoke.

Outdoors, there’s a dedicated kiddie pool and children’s water park, plus areas for taking out bikes and rideable cars.

The trendy ‘Wired’ teen lounge is designed especially for kids twelve and over, featuring flat-screen TVs, video games, arcade games, billiards, air hockey and foosball tables, and serving up slushies and frozen virgin cocktails.

With all this on offer, it’s possible that parents will find their teenagers spending more time on their own, with their peers, than they’d have guessed.

Parents who prefer to enjoy a little adults-only downtime who have children under four are also able to arrange for babysitting services through the resort for an additional fee.

Where kids are concerned, what’s on the menu at their next meal can also be a pressing question. Guests of Moon Palace Jamaica will find abundant options available to keep youngsters satisfied, with everything from poolside pizza and snacks to gourmet dining included in their stay.

The Boulangerie, reminiscent of a Parisian café, is particularly convenient, serving up fresh pastries, crepes, sweet treats, ice cream, flavored coffees and more, 24 hours a day. Gourmet Corner also dishes out a variety of quick-serve favorites, like pizza, paninis and even sushi, for casual dining or to take on-the-go.

Five other sumptuous, dine-in restaurants on the property offer a mouth-watering variety of cuisines with options to please the palates of adults and minors alike.

Right now, Moon Palace Jamaica is offering a special deal that provides free airport transfers, up to $1,500 in resort credit, and free stays for kids and teens.
