I received discounted lodging at Beaches Resort in exchange for promotion. All opinions are my own.
Last year, I went to Beaches Resort by myself to attend the Social Media on the Sand Conference. The minute I got there, I regretted not bringing my kids with me. Beaches Resorts are kid-friendly for so many reasons. The entire resort is made with kids in mind.
There are a lot of reasons I would suggest you bring your kids to Beaches, but here are the top 5 reasons Beaches Resorts are kid-friendly.
Top 5 Reasons Beaches Resorts are Kid-Friendly
1. Beaches Resorts Offer Kids Camp
Every day, Beaches resorts offer Kids Camp. It is one of the things that really differentiates and ensures Beaches Resorts are kid-friendly. Basically, it is drop-in childcare services based on ages. My kids were in the 5-7 group. Most of the time, there were half a dozen other kids their age. Each day, there is a schedule that includes activities such as face painting, water games, time in the pool, board games, sand activities, parties, etc. The staff are so friendly and my kids truly loved going to kids camp. Most days, they actually asked to go to kids’ camp, even if we had planned on them hanging out with us.
Kids Camp generally runs from 8am to 9 or 10pm. That means, you can drop them for as little or as long as you want. It was nice to have the option of care so that I was able to attend the conference sessions and also could have some adult-only time every now and then. My kids also loved eating meals at Kids Camp because they got to go to a restaurant that had smaller, kid-sized tables and chairs, which they enjoyed.
2. The Beaches & Pools are Unparalleled
I can’t really even describe to you just how gorgeous and abundant the pools and beaches are at the Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos. There are more than a dozen pools to choose from and the beach is one of the prettiest I’ve ever seen. The sand is so fine and gorgeous. My kids loved that they were able to swim in numerous pools, one with a mini water park, and also spend an equal amount of time at the beach. There are so many water activities to keep your kids entertained, including snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaks, water bikes, and more.
3. The Sesame Street Activities Are Great For Families
Throughout the week we were at Beaches Resort, there were many different activities with Sesame Street characters. There were two specific events that stand out for me. First, my kids were part of the Sesame Street parade and got to dress up like pirates. It was so fun watching them walk in the parade alongside all their favorite Sesame Street characters.
The other fun event was a baking activity with Cookie Monster. My kids love Cookie Monster so they were able to actually bake cookies with him and got a chance to meet him one on one. All of the Sesame Street activities are definitely one of the top reasons that Beaches Resorts are kid-friendly.
4. The Rooms are Kid-Friendly
We stayed in the Italian Village. Last year, I was in the French Village. I can’t speak to all of the rooms at the resort, but I am so glad we were in the Italian Village this year. The rooms are very large and we had two distinctly separate spaces. When you first walk in, there is a little sink and two bunk beds with a tv. My kids had their own separate space. It was cozy enough that they felt very secure in that room. Then you walk through another doorway and you see the master bedroom area with a large king bed. The bathroom is also very large so it wasn’t a problem to share with my kids. It was an added bonus that they had their own lower sink for brushing their teeth and putting on their sunscreen.
5. They Offer Personalized Attention
Beaches Resorts are kid-friendly because there are so many of the options at the resort can be customized to fit your family’s needs. The staff all have training to work with people with disabilities and autistic individuals. They also have well-trained dining staff so they can assist with any dietary restrictions. I also love that there are just so many choices. In terms of dining, there are over 20 restaurants, so you are sure to find something that will work for all of the members of your family.
Overall, my kids absolutely loved their first trip to Beaches Resort in Turks and Caicos. They were sad to leave and only a day after we were home, they asked when we are going back. I think it’s a good sign they wanted to go back so quickly. But of course they did! This place is made for kids and I’m so very grateful they had the chance to experience it with me this year.
