Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in the Bahamas

Oyster reporters headed to the Bahamas to explore the destination's top hotels. We slept in the beds, lounged by the pools, ate in the restaurants, and even sampled the nightlife, all with an eye toward selecting the most distinguished properties. Here's a list of our favorite kid-friendly hotels.

Atlantis Paradise Island Resort


Atlantis Paradise Island Resort Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location: Bahamas

Brimming with activities for kids and teens, Atlantis is a veritable Caribbean Disneyland. In addition to all the basics (babysitting, cribs, rollaway beds, kids club) the resort has 11 spectacular pools (including several kids' pools), a 141-acre water park, a speedway for racing remote control cars, and a marine habitat with sharks, stingrays, and dolphins to swim alongside -- and that's just a small sample of all the attractions. In addition, for teens, Atlantis has an elaborate shopping center, a rock-climbing wall, teen-focused spa treatments like "Acne-attack" facials, an under-18 nightclub, and, on occasion, a pop-star concert (think Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber).

Grand Lucayan


Grand Lucayan Rating: 4.0 Pearls

Location: Bahamas

The Grand Lucayan is one of the best family resorts in the Bahamas. This is mainly due to location; it sits on arguably the best beach of any hotel on Grand Bahama, and it is also across the street from the Lucaya Marketplace, a popular tourist spot with cheap kid-friendly eats. The on-site family pool has a two-story waterslide, and guests can rent snorkeling gear, Jet Skis, kayaks, banana boats, parasailing, and more from nearby vendors. Camp Lucaya Kids Club provides daily activities like arts and crafts, supervised swimming, and beach Olympics for kids ages three to 12. Plus, connecting rooms are available, cribs are free in Breakers Cay and Reef Village, and rollaway beds are on offer (though there's a nightly fee for use, and an extra guest fee).
