1. Club Med Cancún Yucatán

Situated on the picturesque tip of the Riviera Maya, this all-inclusive is lined with three white, sandy beaches and is steps from the world’s second largest coral reef. Included in your stay is unlimited gourmet dining at one of the four on-site restaurants, unlimited snorkeling, sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, archery, flying trapeze, tennis and more. You’ll also have access to the Club Med kids clubs where little ones aged 4 to 17 can partake in kid-friendly activities run by registered childcare workers. If your kid isn’t quite old enough (they’re under 4), you can check out the on-demand services ranging from babysitting to the Petit Club Med club. In July 2018, the resort expanded their Aguamarina family area with an additional 60 rooms and a new ocean front pool. Rooms feature separate sleeping areas(so parents and kids can have their own private space) and spacious balconies so you can enjoy the ocean breeze after the little ones go to sleep. clubmed.ca

2. Royalton Bavaro Punta Cana

Your water babies will quickly get into the swim of things at this new all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana. At Royalton Bavaro, the biggest decision of their day will be the splash pad or lazy river? As if the slides, fountains, tubes and 1,200 feet of winding river weren’t enough, bigger kids can also learn to surf on the FlowRider surf machine. Plus, parents with really little ones will appreciate the shade canopy at the kiddie pool, where everyone can cool off with an icy drink. Once they’re feeling sufficiently waterlogged, kids ages 4 to 12 can hang at the supervised Kids Club that boasts daily visits from beloved TV characters Max and Ruby, X-Box stations, an air hockey table, craft room and much more. While the kids are busy, parents can easily kill a few hours with a latte break at the coffee bar, a sweat sesh at the well-equipped gym or a visit to the on-site spa for a massage, facial or hydrotherapy circuit. Nine restaurants, plus a poolside food truck and 24-hour room service menu mean there’s something for everyone (even your pickiest eater!)—at any time, day or night. Sunwing Vacations will take care of all the details, from flights to hotel transfers, so that even Mom can get into beach-mode the minute you get the airport. (Did we mention you get a complimentary glass of bubbly during the flight?!)sunwing.ca

3. Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

No need to worry about your big kid or tween getting bored lying by the pool at Hard Rock Riviera Maya. An on-site Woodward facility means they can spend hours trying tricks at the skate park, launching off ramps on a BMX bike (available for rent), bouncing on trampolines, leaping into a foam pit or tackling a ninja-themed obstacle course. Kids who are more digitally inclined can film all the action on high-resolution cameras, or get some DJ experience through Hard Rock’s Music Lab program. Of course, you can’t go all the way to the Riviera Maya without spending some time in the water. The whole family can snorkel or kayak just off the beach in a protected cove, or the kids can swim and zip down the water slide in the expansive family-friendly pool. Need more ideas to keep them busy? Check out the fun at the Roxity Kids Club where little ones can play games and make music (they’ll go wild for boogie boards and Guitar Hero). With the kids preoccupied, parents can sneak off to the adults-only side of the resort (also known as Heaven) for a spa treatment, a yoga class or simply some time to lounge by a kid-free pool. Afterwards, meet up for dinner—you have your choice of Italian, Latin American, Japanese cuisine and more at the world-class restaurants—and finish off with a show on the big stage.hrhrivieramaya.com

10. Windjammer Landing

Welcome to paradise. Seriously. Once you make your way down the windy road to Windjammer Landing, you’ll feel like you’vearrived. The massive resort sits on a picturesque bay of crystal clear blue waters with a 64,000-square-foot stretch of white, sandy beach. The resort’s premium all-inclusive package gives your family access to everything on the property, including the five on-site restaurants (we recommend indulging in the fish tacos at Embers), water sports, room service and champagne by the glass—Hey, you’re on vacation too! Drop kids aged 4 to 12 off at The Jacquot Fun Club where they can partake in free activities like a lizard and crab hunt (yep, that’s a thing), mocktail mixing and tennis lessons. The Club also runs special events (for a small fee) like horseback riding and historical trips to Fort Rodney. You can relax and have some “me time” at the lavish Spa (book the room with the private Japanese soaker tub). Rooms at this resort come in a wide variety.

If you’re looking for a traditional accommodation, book at the Oceanview, where you can get one or two bedrooms rooms and suites, which are walkable to the beach, restaurants, lobby and the nearby pools. Larger families may want to book one of the impressive hillside villas, which will mean that you’ll spend a lot of time taking the 24-hour resort shuttle down to the beach, but it will be worth it for the spacious living areas, stunning views, kitchen facilities—and some even have private plunge pools! After you’ve finished exploring the property, head to Jammin’ Tours to book one of their full or half-day excursions that let you really experience everything this majestic island has to offer. A cruise (and snorkel!) by the Pitons is, of course, a must, but families can also experience a drive-in volcano (meaning, there’s no hiking required), mud baths, the picturesque Toraille Water Fall and Marigot Bay.windjammer-landing.com

12. Beaches Turks and Caicos

You’ll need a detailed itinerary to squeeze in all there is offered at this massive all-inclusive. Take your pick from a large selection of family-friendly suites (some come with separate kids’ rooms and private butler service!) and then fill your belly with gourmet pizza, tandoori chicken, coconut crumbled shrimp, Jamaican jerk pork and more from one of the 21 restaurants on the property. Situated on a spectacular 12-mile stretch of white, sandy beach, your family can make the most of the glittery, blue waters with access to SUP, windsurfing, snorkeling and scuba diving—at no extra charge.

There’s also a surf simulator where you can learn how to hang ten. Got the munchies? Grab some ice cream or gooey mac ‘n cheese from the food trucks parked right in the park, or take a break from the sun in the massive pirate ship diner where you can get hot dogs, PB&J sandwiches and banana splits on demand. If (gasp!) it should rain, you can take refuge in the Xbox Play Lounge where the entire family can get their Minecraft fix. In the evening, you’ll have your pick of entertainment, from productions of Alice in Wonderland and Treasure Island to movie nights in the pool and a tween-friendly disco where they can dance the night away. Want some solo parent time? The onsite kids camp caters to tots and teens (up to 17 years old) with certified childcare workers and activity-packed programs running from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Once they’re back and ready for bed, have Elmo or Abby tuck them in by booking a VIP Sesame Street bedtime service. Now that’s seriously a good night!beaches.com

13. Franklyn D. Resort

What the all-inclusive FDR lacks in modern polish it makes up for with its casual, call-you-by-name vibe. And here’s the best part: A nanny comes with your stay. It’s not that you won’t see your kids; the resort is small, with four pools and one small beach. But it will be someone else’s job to watch them like a hawk while they tie dye in the kids’ centre or go down the waterslide for the 57th time. Read a book or have a long conversation with your spouse while your kids have a blast? Nowthat’sa vacation. (You do, however, need to pay extra if you need your nanny after 4:40 p.m.) There are fun free activities for kids ages two to 11 in the Kiddie’s Centre, including video games, movies and crafts.fdrholidays.com

14. Nickelodeon Hotel & Resorts Punta Cana

The family that gets slimed together stays together at this Karisma-owned Dominican Republic resort, where your kids can meet Spongebob Squarepants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Paw Patrol in the, uh, plush. The two halves of this expansive, all-inclusive resort are linked by a path and golf-cart shuttle. Stick to the west side sports complex and Aqua Nick water park (where you experience the aforementioned slime) for kid-focused fun. The east side, shared with sister resort Sensatori, is where you’ll find the well-appointed rooms, restaurants, the beach, a pristine infinity pool and Spongebob’s Pineapple Villa. Book a swim-up suite with a shared pool right off your patio, so your water bugs never actually have to get out of the pool. There are several restaurant options (including an excellent burger joint, BRGRS.PH) and a family-friendly buffet, stocked with baby food pouches and plenty of high chairs. The pretty rooms sleep up to six people. Let them know the age of your kids before you go, and they’ll set up the room with whatever you need (baby food, milk, a stroller, crib, bottle warmer, bathroom step stool, kids’ spa robes). The best part: downtime is totally yours once they see Club Nick, an ages 4-12 club with its very own curly slide into a ball pit, and tons of bean bags and pillows for kids who want to take a break from the sun and cool off. For younger babies and toddlers (accompanied by a parent), the kids’ club is open as an indoor play space for a few hours midday.nickresortspuntacana.com

Babies and toddlers from ages four months to two years can be cared for during the day for an additional fee, and kids ages four to 11 can participate in free daily activities like dance lessons and theatre classes at the included kids’ club. They’ll also love circus school (free with your stay), where they can learn trapeze, tightrope walking, and mask painting from Cirque du Soleil-trained performers. If you need a longer break, for an additional fee you can check kids four months and older into Pyjama Club, an evening babysitting service. Every night parents and babies can eat dinner together at The Baby Restaurant (located inside the kids’ club), but if you want to eat in the main restaurant, head to the baby corner, where food like yogurts and mashed fruits are available. The resort also has several 24-hour baby-care areas each with a blender, sterilizer, microwave, refrigerator and bottle warmer. (Formula isn’t provided so bring your own). Kids under four stay free and kids between four and 11 stay for up to 50 per cent off.clubmed.ca
