Reggae, rhythms, and gentle ocean breezes draw guests to Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa. The wide array of activities and offerings make those traveling with their children want to stay. There’s something for everyone at this all-inclusive family-friendly beach resort, which is why it is a popular destination in Jamaica.
You will never hear a child declare, “I’m bored!” at the Hilton Rose Hall. My kids repeatedly hit the water slides in the Sugar Mills Falls Water Park while their parents floated around in the adjacent lazy river. We mingled with other families at the resort’s swim up bar. Kayaks and canoes were available to us at the beach front water recreation center . When we felt the need to dry out for a while, my crew challenged other families to table tennis and chess. The kids also competed in organized games and contests. Quite often we opted to do nothing at all. OK, maybe I was the only one who attempted to exercise that option. Alright, alright, I tried to exercise that option. I was traveling with high energy kids after all (spouse included in that descriptor).
THE PERKS OF ALL-INCLUSIVE RESORT DINING
For a mom like me, the carefree feeling that comes from an all-inclusive get away is a great perk. Everything is taken care of for you — meals, drinks and snacks — rather than prepared and toted around by you. There are no tabs to sign, no numbers to calculate. If you need something, you merely have to ask. (I did pinch myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming.) If your picky little darling doesn’t like a dish, you simply order something else at no added expense. With seven restaurants on the property, the food choices provided plenty of diversity. Kids, vegetarians and others with special diets or particular palettes will not have a problems finding nourishment at the Hilton Rose Hall.
Evenings are filled with lighthearted fun, much of it embracing the spirit of Jamaica. We enjoyed s’mores and live Reggae on the beach on our first night at the resort. We capped off our stay with a showing of the children’s movie, “Ratatouille.” Every night in between there was entertainment ranging from live music and dancing to a kids’ variety show.
PARENT APPROVED KIDS ONLY FUN
A few kid-friendly amenities not only allow younger guests to gather, socialize and befriend other kids, they offer worry-free opportunities for parents to steal away rare time for themselves. These include:
- The Teen Zone: An arcade-style game room where teens can hang out and take some time away from the family, particularly those annoying younger siblings.
- Kids Club: Complete with playground and art projects, the Kids Club offers fun programs to occupy your youngster’s time and work their imaginations.
- Babysitting services: The Kids Club closes for lunch and is not open in the evenings. Should you need childcare during those times, babysitting can be arranged through housekeeping.
While many families fully enjoy their Jamaican vacations without ever leaving Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, the activities desk can help arrange tours to nearby attractions such as Mystic Mountain and Dunns River Falls should your family be interested in venturing out.
