"Love Your Family" Package Announced at Sheraton Cable Beach

Nassau is an easy destination for families to love: it's a quick hop from the US, the water is sensational, and there's a wide variety of activities on and off the beach. Now there's another good reason to love this island: the recently renovated Sheraton Cable Beach Resort has launched the new “Love Your Family” program, which offers a variety of fun activities for both parents and children. The resort is also the only international Sheraton property to currently feature the brand’s signature “Love Your Family” guest program.

Special "Love Your Family" Program Amenities: Families will be able to enjoy a number of family-friendly activities, such as fireside storytelling, stargazing and ‘dive-in’ movies. In addition, the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort offers a variety of exclusive experiences indigenous of its location, including Junkanoo Jamboree, a festival featuring authentic foods, dance and music; cultural dance lessons for guests who want to learn native dances of the island; Bahamian Idol, a talent competition featuring local folk songs; and Bahamian Spelling Bee where guests will be tested on the spelling of native words.
  • Parents’ Night Out - Parents can take a guilt-free night off while their children enjoy their own big night out, dining with other kids and enjoying fun and festive counselor-led activities.
  • Added Guestroom Amenities & Services - Families are guaranteed a host of family-friendly amenities including connecting rooms, child safety accessories, and a minimum of at least one family television station, like the Disney Channel or Cartoon Network.
