Today’s families have it tough when it comes to planning vacations. Several generations of one family can be scattered across towns, cities and even countries, and with their varied, hectic schedules, getting them all together can be a logistical and pricey nightmare. This summer, family-run SuperClubs Resorts comes to the rescue with affordable reunion options in three tropical Caribbean locales that take away the “pricey” part of the equation.
May 1 kicks off the “Kids Stay, Play & Eat Free” promotion, where children ages 2-13 years can stay absolutely free – a daily saving of $100 for a family of four! Single parents are covered too, with a waiver of the usual single supplement.
“Budget, destination and timing are the three biggest priorities for families today, and finding options that will please working parents, grandparents with time and money to spare, college-age kids, and tiny tots can be challenging,” said Zein Nakash, SuperClubs’ vice president of marketing, who is also a mother of two, a twin sister, full-time working executive, and daughter of John Issa, who introduced the first all-inclusive resorts for the American traveler more than 30 years ago. Nakash added: “All-inclusives are always a solid value for families, especially when they are true all-inclusives that fix costs before you even get on the plane, and offer a wide array of activities for all age groups and interests without charging extra for them. This summer especially, we’ve got the best vacation values for families.”
Family Adventures at Starfish Trelawny, Jamaica: This mecca for adventurous families offer teens a private island hideaway just a short swim away, windsurfing and flying trapeze lessons. At the Kid’s Club, supervised, age-specific programs keep toddlers entertained, while adult pampering is available at the Blue Mahoe Spa. Nightly rates start at $74 per adult; $50 per child (age 2-13). No single supplement.
Aqua Marine Antics at Breezes Curaçao: Kids Stay Free + Single Parent Promotions
Greeting families with refurbished accommodations and upgraded amenities to the tune of US$1.3 million, the Dutch Caribbean’s first Super-Inclusive resort is a bona fide playground for kids and parents alike. At the renovated 12,000-square-foot Kid’s Club, young guests can juggle a myriad of riveting adventures from circus workshops to bouncy boxing. Just two miles from Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this beachfront property is also a gateway to local attractions. Rates start at $129 per adult, per night.
New Flights to Breezes Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic: Kids Stay Free + Single Parent Promotions
With JetBlue Airways’ new daily nonstop service between New York and Puerto Plata, the recently renovated Breezes Puerto Plata offers a family vacation that is “away from it all” and yet, just a convenient four-hour flight from the Northeast. While kids lose track of time at the Mini-club, parents and grandparents can lose their stress knots at the revamped Lighthouse Spa, the largest in the Dominican Republic. Rates start at $60 per adult, per night.
