Best Kid-Friendly Resort in Jamaica

Beaches Negril has so much going on for toddlers, tweens, and teens that even local families go there to enjoy a break.

“I feel free to just let them run,” said one mother enjoying the sun by the pool, knowing that her two kids were perfectly safe and well entertained.

If they aren’t playing on the giant pirate slide at the pool, they’re in the Xbox Play Lounge keeping up with their gaming and DanceDance Revolution skills.

Jamaica Negril Family Resort-Beaches-Kids-Water-ParkOr they could be enjoying the Sesame Street Parade, mixing and blending at the DJ Academy, or watching the pastry chef at the Café de Paris whip up a crepe made fresh just for them. Wherever they are, chances are good that the resort’s youth activity coordinators are keeping an eye out for their fun and safety—and knows them all by name.

We found a bunch of them at Dino’s beachside pizzeria, where Marcello, the pizza chef from Italy, hand-tosses the pizzas and cooks them up to order crisp and fresh in the woodstone oven.

Got a little princess in tow? She’d probably love to get a Twinkle Toes pedi and Fancy Fingers mani at the Red Lane Spa with mom, while dad and the lad get a father and son massage.

It may just be the one family friendly vacation spot where the parents actually get a vacation too.

Beaches Negril will certainly keep you busy, but if you’re looking for adventure of a different kind, Chukka Jamaica is up for the challenge and will happily pick you up for free from Beaches Negril.
