Be Aware of Minimum Ages When Booking a Resort Vacation for Your Family

A few years ago I signed up with a travel website called Vacations To Go when we started to look at cruises that we could afford for our busy family of 5 living on one income. Needless to say we haven't been on that cruise yet. LOL. They send me regular email updates of not only cruises but resort vacations, hotel deals and escorted tours.

Todays information was kind of an 'Ohhhh yeah' moment for me when I realized it had some great information that people need to know if they are look at resort vacations. Some of them are adult only!

If you are planning a vacation for your 'young' family of children with you, there are certain resorts that only cater to adults or teens over 18 and some, teens over 14. Here are just a few of the more popular 'big' name resorts and the minimum age of guests staying with them;


Breezes resorts in the Bahamas and Jamaica have lively atmospheres, with lots of emphasis on recreation, activities and nightlife. Guests must be 14 or older, so you may see teenagers at these properties, especially during spring break and summer. However, no one under the age of 18 is allowed at Breezes Bahamas in Nassau in March and April.

The Grand Lido properties in Jamaica and Excellence Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic are upscale beachfront retreats. Club Med, a company that once built its reputation on having a party atmosphere geared to single adults, now has just one adults-only property, Club Med Turkoise in the Turks and Caicos.

Attractive options for people seeking an adults-only vacation on Mexico's Riviera Maya include the Palace, Secrets and El Dorado resorts.

The couples-only resorts of Sandals and Couples draw many honeymooners and others seeking a romantic escape. Therefore, they tend to have a more tranquil, casually elegant ambiance. Sandals' 12 resorts are located in Jamaica, St. Lucia, the Bahamas and Antigua. All four Couples resorts are in Jamaica.

All of the resorts mentioned above are all-inclusive, which means that lodging, meals, all beverages and many activities are wrapped up into one price you pay upfront.
