Family resorts in the Caribbean - main - hoteles familiares en el Caribe

Family resorts in the Caribbean are about energy, movement, songs, games, laughs, screams, cries, and laughs again. “I want to snorkel”, “Dad, you promised me that on this trip I’ll learn to dive”, “When are we going to ride the boat?”; “Daughter, don’t worry about me. I’ll stay in the aqua gym.” “Everyone out for breakfast, right now!!!” …and so on until they fall asleep.

Traveling gives children wings to fly high, so much so that it is hard to put them down. For this reason, knowing some of the best Caribbean family all-inclusive resorts adapted to the whole family is essential.

In today’s article, we see which are the best family resorts in the Caribbean for scuba divers with kids. All-inclusive hotels with endless leisure options for people from zero years old.

We leave you the table of contents of the article, so you do not miss anything.

1. All-Inclusive Family Resorts in the Caribbean Facilities

What does a diver hotel have to have for the whole family to enjoy?

Family rooms

A family resort in the Caribbean must provide comfortable accommodation for you and your entire family. In other words, triple or quadruple rooms have to be an option, without this meaning a reduction in space.

Another possibility is connecting rooms. They are ideal for families with slightly older children, leaving more privacy to adults. Suites with living rooms and bungalows are for those who need even more space.
