Finding children-friendly hotels can be a rough process. You want to be as comfortable as possible while on vacation, and that’s not going to happen if you go to a hotel that is not child-friendly for your child. The Caribbean has many hotels that allow your kids to be kids and have fun.

Carlisle Bay

Carlisle Bay is an amazing hotel that is on its very own bay on the southern part of Antigua. Highly modernized, this Caribbean gem still has a sort of island feel to it. Carlisle Bay has a children’s club called the Cool Kids. It is in a building all its own and promotes fun from toddlers to teenagers. The amenities include an outdoor area that is covered from the sun, a sandpit, mini tennis courts, a swimming pool and a jungle gym. For children that are older, roughly around 8 to 12, there are activities such as going on mini hikes, snorkeling, taking sailing lessons or kayaking. In addition, there is a movie theater for the kids to go watch children’s movies such as “Finding Nemo” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”

Cap Juluca

Cap Juluca is great for kids, with a few minor restrictions. Since the hotel is extremely large, kids under 6 are not permitted in the main rooms and suites. The hotel does not want their visitors to be disturbed by kids running around without parental advisory. Other than that, children are able to do everything else. For example, Cap Juluca’s Fun House is a great place for your children to hang out and do arts and crafts with other children. Your kids also can go on nature walks and playing other sports like tennis, volleyball and basketball. If you would like to go out without your children, baby-sitting also is provided by the hotel.
