Sheraton Cable Beach Casino and Golf Resort

May 2006 Update: The resort, along with the neighboring Wyndham, will be undergoing a major renovation later this year. Here the plan calls for a complete $62 million renovation of the 691-room hotel, which will be re-branded as a Sheraton and managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide when it re-opens. The Radisson renovation will occur in two phases, closing one 346-room wing of the hotel for approximately four months, before commencing work on the second wing.

The Sheraton Cable Beach (formerly the Radisson Cable Beach) offers round-the-clock action both on and off the beach. Every room in the high-rise hotel offers an ocean view. For real luxury, splurge with a junior suite located at the end of each floor. We did and enjoyed sunrise from the bedroom balcony and sunset from the living room balcony. A shopping arcade (with surprisingly good prices, we found) connects the Radisson with the neighboring Wyndham Crystal Palace Casino.

Camp Junkanoo offers daily supervised fun on a half- or full-day basis. Children are divided into two age groups: four to six and seven to 11. The ratio of children to child coordinators is six to one and children are always monitored and kept in a secure area. Typical activities include a treasure hunt, beach Olympics, arts and crafts, pool and lagoon games, ice cream contests, candy bar bingo, movies, and field trips such as to the Crystal Key Underwater Observatory and Marine Park or Ardastra Gardens and Zoo.

Here's a typical day at Camp Junkanoo:

•9:30-10am Register
•10am Nature Walk
•11am Treasure Hunt/Face Painting
•12noon Lunch time
•1:30 Afternoon registration
•2:30 Arts and Crafts/Ping Pong
•3:30 Water Balloon relay
•4pm Relaxing hour
•4:30 Pick up time

Complimentary cribs are offered and baby-sitting is available at nominal charge.
