When you finally manage to get the whole family out for a holiday in Cancun, the last thing you need is to carry on babysitting, cooking, and cleaning – you should be relaxing! You can avoid this palaver by opting for an all-inclusive resort that not only provides childcare, but all your meals and drinks too. This means you can enjoy basking on the sugar-white beaches with the little ones out of your hair!
Here are some of our favorite family-friendly hotels in Cancun:
Beach Palace Resort
If you like your dining options varied, the Beach Palace Resort offers six different choices – it may not be particularly healthy, but the hotel provides a Child’s menu packed with all their favourite treats: chicken fingers, pizza, and burgers, for example (let them have their treats – they’re on holiday!). The staff are widely lauded as excellent service providers and will treat you like royalty. If you’re looking for pampering, there are three pools and a spa on-site.
Children aged 4 to 12 can join up to the Kids Club and benefit from all sorts of fun activities, including face painting, dance lessons, and video gaming. A Nextel Direct Walkie-Talkie allows parents to keep in touch with their little ones all day long, while they get some much-needed relaxation. A teen disco offers an opportunity for young ones to make friends.
Crown Paradise Club Cancun
If you’re looking for exciting activities for the kids, at Crown Paradise Club, they can play in the game room, try out mini golf, splash around in the four swimming pools, and go crazy in the water park. There are childcare programmes, depending on age: from 18 months to 17 years old, there’s a group for every kid, designed to make their holiday fun.
If your family is full of fussy eaters, you have seven restaurants to choose from!
Moon Palace Golf And Spa Resort
Upping the ante, Moon Palace has no less than seven outdoor pools and thirteen dining options. In the Kid’s Club, your little ones can learn how to cook, make a piñata, and beat the climbing tower, amongst other activities. Tweens will satisfy their gaming addiction in their own room full of Xboxes, Wiis, pool tables, and air hockey.
Sunday nights, there’s a chocolate tasting event for all ages. You can hire a babysitter at an extra cost, if you want more adult time.
GR Caribe By Solaris Deluxe
Well, this hotel has the accolade of 2012 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence Winner, so you can’t really go wrong. Ten minutes from the airport (pretty handy for Cancun flights!), everyone can benefit from the water park. Kids can have fun being creative with arts and crafts, finger painting, and story times. Babysitting is also available at an extra charge.
Omni Cancun Hotel And Villas
When you have a big family, space is always an issue. At Omni, you can book up three bedroom villas for your family of six. It’s a pretty interesting place with nine restaurants, two snack bars, and themed dinner buffets!
