 The Marriott Wailea's lower-level pool has a playground set in ankle-deep water.
The Riu Palace playground has an amazing view of the ocean, and its proximity to the beach is convenient for making trips back and forth with your little ones in tow. The Marriott Wailea's lower-level pool has a playground set in ankle-deep water. The Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus Kids Club has a large, fun playground. Beaches Sandy Bay easily makes our list of top family-friendly hotels in Jamaica; this playground is among its many kid-friendly features. The Beaches Negril Resort and Spa playground is relatively new looking and in good condition. The Puerto Plata Village Caribbean's wooden playground can flood in the rain, and the grass surrounding it can get slippery and muddy. The hotel has a large pool and a small playground, but other than that, there are few activities or accommodations for children. The Half Moon playground, located in the Anancy Children's Village, is sheltered from the sun and has a mini rock-climbing wall. Two seesaws sit in the grass next to the principal part of the playground. The Iberostar Costa Dorada playground is modeled after a pirate ship. Tower One's 6th floor is kid central, with a pool, two Jacuzzis, a playground, tennis court, small putting green, BBQ grills, snack bar, and ample seating everywhere. But overall the hotel's amenities don't measure up to those at the Marriott Waikiki a block away. The shady playground at Rose Hall has three slides. There's nothing fancy about the Rose Hall swing set, but it's functional. Kids can play with sand toys in the playground area should they weary of the slide. The Gran Bahia Principe Jamaica playground is on top of soft, white sand. The Grand Palladium Bavaro playground is composed of several structures in the sand, and is built for young children. A yellow tunnel connects one part of the playground to the other. The Ritz-Carlton playground is old and rusty, but there are other family-friendly features at the resort to compensate, such as the lagoon-shaped pool and supervised kids' clubs. The Viva Wyndham Playa Dorada has a play structure suited for tots and small children. Even though the Puerto Plata Village playground isn't very usable after the rain, it's one of the larger playground complexes we've seen in the D.R. Nino's Kids Club includes a jungle gym and large play structure. The Coyaba Beach Resort playground is looking a little old, but it's large enough to keep the kids entertained. The Gran Ventana Beach Resort playground is wooden, so kids should be careful of spliters! The Iberostar Punta Cana playground, which includes a play structure modeled after a ship, was a hub of activity when our reporter visited. A separate play structure accomodates younger children. The Marriot Waiohai has a playground set with two slides. The Viva Wyndham playground has structures appropriate for different age groups. This Little Tikes play structure got slippery in the rain. The Catalonia Gran Dominicus playground is near the beach, so parents can easily shuttle kids back and forth. The resort's average on-site playground is tucked in among condo buildings.
