5 Kid Friendly All Inclusive Resorts You Want To Explore With Your Family

Want to know about the absolutely best 5 kid friendly all inclusive resorts? When you're planning a family vacation, you're looking for kid friendly all inclusive resorts and when there's tons of options out there, where do you start to looking for the best kid friendly all inclusive resorts? 

I myself have children and grandchildren on my own. So here's what I look for when I travel with my kids and grand kids:

    1. Accommodations which give mom and dad some privacy and space to enjoy the evenings after the kids have gone to bed.

    2. Great kids activities in a safe environment, trained child care providers and lots of variety to keep everyone happy.
    3. Good food choices to keep everyone satisfied.
    4. A resort which is not only kid friendly but gives the adults in the group a great vacation also!

Here are my favorite 5 kid friendly all inclusive resorts based in the above criteria:

Number 1:  Azul Sensatori Mexico

Azul Sensatori Mexico is located approximately 20 minutes from the Cancun airport which is great after a long flight with kids.  Azul Sensatori shines for families and it’s a mid to large size resort so there are lots of options for everyone.

  • All Inclusive Resort Accommodations - The Paradise For Every Kid ... And Its Parents:

Azul Sensatori Family Suite

Connecting Luxury Jacuzzi Ocean View Suite – this is the perfect room for a larger family.  You will have two oversized suites one room with a king bed and the second with two queen size beds with a connecting door.  Each suite offers upscale amenities plus an oversized balcony or terrace. These suites are available for a maximum of 6 adults or 4 adults and 2 children or 2 adults and 4 children.

Family Jacuzzi Suite – this oversized suite offers a private queen size bed area and a second area with a double sofa bed plus a single sofa bed and a sliding door separates the two areas – perfect for a family with smaller children.  This room category comes in either garden view or ocean view. Each room includes premium amenities and is available for families of 5!

  1. Azulitos by Fisher-Price (6 months to 5 years)

    This is a large play space by Fisher-Price with the latest toys designed to promote early learning through play.  Kids can sing, listen to stories and make friends.  Children under 4 need to be accompanied by a parent or care workers can be hired. 

  2. Azulitos Kids Club (4 to 12 years)

    The kids club offers daily activities for children indoors and outdoors to keep everyone challenged and happy.

  3. My Gym Center (4 to 12 years)

  4. Do the kids need to work off a bit of energy?  Do your kids love to be active?  If so, My Gym offers ropes, parallel bars, trampoline, springboard and other fitness activities all used under supervision.
  5. Activity Rooms – specially designed activity rooms such as arts & crafts, interactive games room, doll room, mini theatre and more – special rooms for special interests!
  6. Children under 4 years must be accompanied by an adult.  The children centers are open from 9 am to 5 pm .  They close during lunch so families can dine together.  Open again from 7:30 to 9:30 pm so mom and dad can dine alone together.
  7. For Older Teens – Breeze Teens Club (13-17 years)

Because older teens love to make friends and hang around with their own age groups, Azul Sensatori offers a great lounge for tennis which includes daily activities, billiards and air hockey, internet center, Play Station 3, XBOX 360 and much more!

And I can’t forget to mention the great in-room toy lending program. In partnership with Fisher-Price you can borrow just the toys your kids love, take them to your room and be able to keep the kids busy and happy all the time!

Number 4: Dreams Tulum on the Mayan Riveria, Mexico

Farther down the Mayan Riviera is a wonderful family resort on an absolutely beautiful stretch of Tulum beach - Dreams Tulum in Mexico.  Dreams is a great family resort with activities for children and adults alike.  This is a very popular destination wedding resort because of the accommodations, location and overall amenities of the resort. The location is also a benefit if you want to show the kids a bit of culture - the Mayan Ruins of Tulum are just 5 minutes away and Xel-ha, another popular family attraction is very near by.

  • All Inclusive Resort Accommodations Your Family Is Dreaming About:
    Dreams Tulum beach
    Dreams Tulum beach

While Dreams does not offer guaranteed adjoining rooms, each room very comfortably holds families of 4 in many different categories.  Rooms are ample size with large sitting areas.  Upgrade to the Preferred Club and you'll also have a Jacuzzi in your room.

  • Kid Friendly All Inclusive Resort Activities:

  1. Pools - lots of pools and a long, white sandy beach are the highlights of Dreams Tulum. In the winter months, you'll love the heated pools. There are tons of pool activities for all ages as well as an adult-only relaxation pool for a bit of time away from the crowd while your kids are in the kids club.
  2. Explorer's Club is available for kids from age 3 through 12 and is open until 10 pm so mom and dad can even have a quiet dinner alone.

  3. I have always found the Dreams kids club to be very secure.  Parents check their kids in and are given beepers.  Kids are kept busy all day or as long as you may like them there.  Dreams also offers an ocean trampoline for jumping fun and a big attraction - movies on the beach!  For a real fun night, kids can spend one night camping under the stars on the beach with the camp counselors.  So much to do, so little time!

For everyone, there's nightly entertainment to enjoy and when mom has a bit of time to slip away, Dreams Tulum offers a wonderful spa!

  • All Inclusive Resorts Dining - Dining Enjoyment For You And Your Family!

The food is great at Dreams Tulum and even pickiest eaters will agree that the selections make this one of the top kid friendly all inclusive resorts on the Mayan Riviera.  Lot of choices for the whole family at any time of day.  And for mom and dad, there's even an adult only French restaurant, Bordeaux for a quiet evening dinner.

For a trip to Jamaica, Beaches offers two resorts and they are the best hands down for kid friendly all inclusive resorts! What do you think about the variety of the four of my best 5 kid friendly all inclusive resorts? Check out the Dreams kids club. It is a parents dream!

 Activities you ask?  Where to start!! From the amazing water slides, water parks and pool activities to the beaches, water is a highlight of the activities for all family members. 

Beaches offers a kids club for all ages with regular visits and activities available with Sesame Street. A true highlight is baking with Cookie Monster or a bedtime story with Elmo (extra charge applies for some activities).  For teens, Liquid is their place to be at Beaches.  You'll truly never have to worry about what they are doing - you know exactly where they'll be - with their friends at the teens lounge.
