Two Jamaican Resorts Offer Getaways for Families Traveling with Grandparents

Offering a getaway for all generations, Jamaica's Franklyn D. Resort and Spa and Pebbles Resort strengthen family ties with their current Bring Your Own Grandparent promotion. Available through February 12, 2009, grandparents traveling with their children and grandchildren stay for free and receive an automatic upgrade to a larger suite. (Families are required to book a three-night minimum stay.)

As families are the focus of both retreats, the Franklyn D. Resort & Spa and Pebbles Resort always offer the option of a vacation nanny for parents with small children, and a 50% Special Needs promotion allows for half off both resorts' published rates for families with special needs children.

Kid-Friendly Features at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort's New Italian Village

The January 2009 launch of the Italian Village at Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa promises both a paradise for parents and fun times for tween and teens. While Mom and Dad dine at one of five new gourmet restaurants or shop at the many retail stores, the younger set can move their feet to the beat of today's hottest hits at Liquid, a nightclub with a marine motif which caters only to the under 18 crowd, or learn how to spin tunes at Scratch DJ Academy. Kids can also make new friends at Trench Town, a lounge reserved just for the teen scene, or they can unwind with specialized treatments at the Red Lane Spa.

Both the young and the young at heart can hang ten on the Caribbean's sole surf simulator, just one of the many features that will make its debut when the Pirates Island Waterpark launches its expansion in March 2009.

Morgan's Island Water Park Opens In Aruba

Making quite a splash with its grand opening in late 2008, Morgan's Island on the island of Aruba is not only the largest water park in the Caribbean, but also in all of Latin America. Its 28,000 sq. ft. of fun features attractions for aquatic adventurers, including a dual slide dubbed Dragon Revenge and the second tallest waterslide on the planet-- a 21-meter vertical plunge that's the treasure of Buccaneer Tower.

Along with giant double wave pools and a game parlor for tweens and teens, little sprouts will be entertained by the water spouts in the giant, zero-entry children's pool.

Aside from all of the aquatic excitement, patrons can also indulge themselves with a pirate-themed meal at the Black Pearl self-service restaurant or the Jack Sparrow Bar, then purchase a souvenir of their stay at the El Corsario gift shop.

Having celebrated its grand opening in early December 2008, Morgan's Point water park is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6p.m.
