Well, we're approaching the Independence Day holiday and my thoughts are already turning to the fall season and the possibility of some R&R with the hubby and kids! Summer is a very hectic season for us, so we generally plan a family escape in the fall season instead. This is a great opportunity to explore some new offerings during off-season and save some dollars in this more cost-conscious times....I have recently learned about the WonderFALL promotion being offered by Beaches Resorts. These resort properties were rated as a "Top Ten" family beach resort by Parents Magazine. There are four all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean, all featuring fabularous white sand beaches in Turks & Caicos and jamaica. By planning a vacation now and booking for selected dates in September and October, vacationers can realize significant savings for this amazing, all-inclusive resort! You get to enjoy everything these outstanding properties have to offer and SAVE up to 45% off** published rates and get 2 Nights Free** (on stays of 7 nights or more). The fall season will also feature special events and activities - including a special celebration for Grandparents (maybe a nice family reunion is in order this year???)~
Here's a link to explore this outstanding value for your own WonderFALL at Beaches Resorts:
My 9-year old daughter and 16-year old son are absolutely drooling over the kid and teen-friendly amenities. I'm lovin' the idea of warm sand and cool drinks! The Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort and Spa features 5 pools, Pirates Island Waterpark, The French Village, an XBOX 360 Game Garage, speciality restaurants, 12 bars serving unlimited premium drinks, and supervised kids camps. Sesame Street and Crayola have partnered with Beaches to add to the fun and activity value as well...It will be a dream come true for our family - lots of fun and relaxation while top-notch service staff attend to our every need. Wow, just want a frazzled, frantic, and befuddled mom can use by the time fall rolls around!
Traveling with a teen can be something of a challenge to keep them engaged and not focus on electronics or moping! Beaches Resorts has the XBOX 360 Garage (video game center), Pirates Island Water Park, swim-up soda bar, and a teen disco for them to connect and "get their groove on"!
Here's some tips I've gathered for vacation nation:
* Snorkeling activities are available to enjoy local underwater sealife (may wish to bring own equipment to minimize wait times and access). Diving is also available - skills certification will be required.
* Kids Clubs: Bring passport/birth certificate to register child
* Be sure to take advantage of an Orientation Tour to get the scoop on your property and added value opportunties.
* Don't forget to ask for a refrig
