Jamaica Best Kids Vacations

Jamaicans Love Kids

Jamaica Best Kids Vacations - Jamaica has several really good kid’s friendly resorts and below are just a few to think about when looking for kids vacation resorts. 

I will begin with FDR Runaway Bay as I recently had first- hand experience visiting a family of 4 with a 2 year old and an 8 month old baby.

At FDR Runaway Bay the property is very inviting with its tropical garden like layout with a large swimming pool around which the setting of the resort is based. 

The buildings are white externally and each floor has a balcony with sea view.  Internal decorations of the family block are of vibrant Caribbean colours including wall murals and brightly painted pictures complimented by dark wood furnishings.

The accommodation consisted of a double bedroom, shower room and the living area had a child’s bed, comfortable easy chairs and a baby cot/crib.

Trained Nannies

There were a number of couples with children at the resort and with a trained nanny assigned to each family at no extra charge from 9am to 5pm daily. 

The children were a happy bunch playing games, running around having fun with their nannies in the gardens and on the shallow beachfront.    The nanny assigned to my friend’s family was enthusiastic, energetic and thoroughly enjoyed her work. 

It was a joy to see the kids running around with nanny having fun allowing parents the choice to enjoy some adult time.
