Fancy All Inclusive WITH Kids
January 30, 2022 2:16 PM   Subscribe

My wife and two kids ( 12 and 11 ) are ready for a vacation of doing absolutely nothing and would like to go to a high end all inclusive resort during Spring break. We live in Austin so Cancun / Riviera Maya is an obvious option, but we are open to anywhere that isn't farther than Hawaii. I will pay a high premium if it's a memorable , exceptional experience. What are your recommendations?

I think that Grand Velas in Cabo may be what you are looking for!

I don’t have recommendations for a resort but I can recommend a wonderful travel agent who would know exactly the right places. DM if interested.

There is a Grand Velas between Cancun and Playa but i thought it was adults only. Some friends have stayed there and loved it though

I don't have a resort rec - we haven't really done the high end ones down there, only mid priced - but I would say beaches on that coast are considerably more swimmable than the ones in Cabo. you may know that or it may not matter, but especially with kids i would keep that in mind.

If i were paying a premium, i would look into the Virgin Islands or Turks and Caicos maybe

My cousin and her husband have gone to Turks & Caicos several times and most recently the Beaches all inclusive. It's a family-focused resort. My cousin's kid is younger than yours, but they were impressed with all of the options they saw for all ages.

for what it worth, wrong about Grand Velas. Family welcome. I would check that out in Playa as well as Cabo
