Caribbean for Families

Caribbean for Families

In the Caribbean we've had some of the most famous families spending time over here. Posh and Becks, Gwyneth and Chris, and Jay Z and Beyonce, all with the kids in tow. But something's missing - you guys. The perfect family, for the perfect sun kissed destination. It's just not the same without you. And we just can't wait to meet the kids.

We've made sure the sun is shining. We're ready to look after the little ones. You're coming. We're so excited.

The sun is always on form. That's the first thing to note. It never really stops shining over here, whether you're looking for a summer or winter break; it's sun, sun, sun, here it comes. Sorry we got a bit carried away there; we're just too excited to have you. But you know what? All that sun is wasted without you here. We're dying to show you everything on offer. We're waiting. It's time. Come on!

 

Barbados

Let's hit the beach. After all that's what the Caribbean is famed for. There's stunning white sand for you to top up that tan back to bronzed beach Adonis, or bikini clad queen; but there's also loads for the kids to get involved with too. The family friendly resorts in Barbados are calling out for you to let them show you what they've got. The beaches on the South Coast of the island are the perfect place for a relaxing family holiday; they're also the best for water sports.

 

Why choose Barbados with Virgin Holidays?

The Savannah Beach resort is an exclusive Virgin Holidays property, which is perfect for both you and the kids. There's two swimming pools, an opportunity to channel your inner Maverick on the beach volleyball court (we'll be Iceman), and an excellent family centre. For younger kids (3-8) it's time to walk the plank and bury treasure with the supervised Pirates Cove Kids' Club, while Finn's Lodge is the perfect place for those a little older.

Teens aren’t forgotten either and Finn’s Surf Lodge provides the perfect space for kids 9-16 yrs to chill out. With the latest in gaming technology they can compete with their friends on the Nintendo Wii, or even learn how to mix their own music on the mixing decks. We also have a fantastic family entertainment centre to keep even the most energetic children... and parents, entertained!

 

St Lucia

This is one of the most scenic islands in the Caribbean. But the views are wasted at the moment. We're thinking the perfect family portrait; white sand, palm trees, and blue sky. Did someone say cheese?

 

Why choose St. Lucia with us?

It's also ideal for all the family, cheesy holiday snaps aside. Home to the largest water park and kids club on the island, Coconut Bay Beach Resort and Spa can't wait to have you. What you just want to lie in the sun and relax while the kids enjoy it? Come on, it's time to get on the waterslide and show them how it's done. They don't call you daredevil dad for nothing.

 

Mexico

How's your Spanish? We're sure the whole of Mexico will be saying "¿Que Pasa?" as soon as you step of the plane... we know we will. That's "What's up?" in Spanish; but you knew that already, being the world explorer that you are.

 

Choosing Mexico with us?

Staying with us at the Occidental Grand Xcaret, you'll be holidaying adjacent to Xcaret Park, Mexico's natural theme park. Here you'll find more than 40 cultural attractions and exhibits which are fun for the whole family; it's also in one of the most unbelievable settings you could ever image. You have to see it to believe it. The kids will be bragging as soon as they get back to school, and your colleagues will be sick of the sight of your smartphone holiday snaps.

There are also the beaches of Playa del Carmen and Cancun; they're waiting with open arms and a "Hola!" on their lips.

 

Jamaica

Let's get back to the beach, that's what the Caribbean is all about after all. We've not even got on to cocktails yet. We're thinking something swish and expensive to match your style. You may as well have it beach side. There'll be crystal clear blue water, blinding white sand, and the perfect amount of glamour. For you, nothing less.

 

Why choose Jamaica with Virgin Holidays?

Two words Beaches and Sunset. While you enjoy the sunset on the beach, let us take care of the rest at either our Beaches or Sunset resorts. At Beaches you'll find gourmet dining in up to 16 speciality restaurants in each resort (that's more than one every night, but we'll get you a table ready for lunch too; we don't want you to miss out), stunning accommodation and water sports aplenty for the kids. Did we mention there's also a butler service, just for you. Don't want to leave? Stay with us, we've loved having you.

 

Antigua

There are 365 beaches in Antigua. That's one every day for a year. We did it last year, we missed having you along for the ride. But if you can't be with us for a year, at least let us host you on what is in our opinion the best beach on the island; Jolly Beach. We're sure it will live up to your high standards!

 

Why choose Antigua with Virgin Holidays?

Did we mention Jolly Beach? There's wide white sand, and clear calm waters. Step out of the water in true James Bond style. The cameras on dry land won't stop clicking. There's also great facilities for the kids so you can be 007 in peace. We've got your martini ready, sir.
