Family-friendly luxury: Half Moon in Jamaica
Parents know: Family vacations are usually a lot more fun for the kids. At resorts like Beaches Boscobel in Jamaica, kids get to enjoy daily Muppet shows and a huge water park, but there's not much for the parents to do besides play along. (The adults-only disco on site is pretty sad).
But it doesn't have to be that way. Half Moon, perhaps the best luxury resort in Jamaica, has something to please everyone. Its packed with family-friendly features, including a great playground, a shallow kiddie pool, a mini-golf course, horseback riding stables, and a private dolphin cove, but parents will also appreciate the treatments at Fern Tree Spa, the swim-up bars, and the availability of full-time nannies. If nannies aren't in the budget, kids can enjoy supervised activities like video games, arts and crafts, and stories with nap time in Anancy Children's Village while mom and dad enjoy some time alone. Best of all, kids under 16 can eat and sleep for free.
