Let’s face it, most of us are ready for a change of scenery that gets us out of our limited 2020 routines. Daydreaming about strolling along the ocean or relaxing in the sun can help you get through the day. And planning a Caribbean getaway for 2021 or 2022 may be just what you and your family need to boost your spirits as you navigate the
short-term uncertainty caused by the pandemic.
An all-inclusive, family-friendly getaway fits the bill perfectly. All-inclusive resorts offer something for everyone, making them a hit with family members of all ages. Plus, they’re easy to plan since one flat rate typically includes your accommodations, food, and activities. But all-inclusive doesn’t mean you have to forgo luxury. The Cruise Dreams team scouts and recommends high-end, all-inclusive properties that will make your travel dreams a reality.
Take a look at five of our new favorites in the Caribbean. Each is brand-new in 2020,
all-inclusive, and designed for family fun and relaxation.
1. Discover the Dominican Republic
The new Dreams Macao Beach resort in Punta Cana offers an ideal getaway destination for couples and families. There’s everything you expect from a family-friendly luxury resort, including beautiful pools, a lazy river, and waterslides. Activities range from snorkeling and kayaking to tennis, beach volleyball, and dance classes. And there are nine gourmet dining options to choose from, ranging from the Macao Bites food truck to the World Café’s buffet and the elegant Bourdeaux restaurant featuring French cuisine.
The beautifully appointed rooms feature stunning views. Or, for extra privacy, choose one of the property’s swim-out two-bedroom villas. Rounding out the amenities, the property boasts a world-class spa, Explorer’s Club adventures for kids, and social events and activities tailored for teens.
2. Find peace on the Riviera Maya
Tucked into a fishing village along the Caribbean coast of Mexico, the new Fives Oceanfront boutique hotel in Puerto Morelos is focused on relaxation. Located halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, you’ll feel a sense of peace and privacy from the moment you arrive.
The spacious one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites feature contemporary Mexican design and offer picture-perfect views of private white-sand beaches and brilliant turquoise waters. Snorkel or dive along Mexico’s longest reef, or lounge by the infinity pools. Tour nearby Mayan archeological sites or get a rush of adrenaline by ziplining through the jungle at the XPlor adventure park.
3. Make memories in Cancun
The sparkling new Dreams Vista Cancun Resort and Spa, located in Puerta del Mar, offers family suites that sleep up to five adults and three kids. And some even feature private plunge pools! Jump in and enjoy the views of the clear blue Caribbean Sea and the nearby Isla Mujeres.
The amenities and menu of activities appeal to all generations. The resort’s contemporary architectural design features a rooftop pool, two surf pools, and a mini-water park for kids and the young at heart. Enjoy theme nights, beach parties, live music, and stage shows at the outdoor theatre. Or enroll in cooking classes, Spanish lessons, or yoga and fitness classes. Then, when it’s time to relax, pamper yourself at the luxurious spa.
4. Get back to nature at Natura Riviera
The Dreams Natura Riviera Resort and Spa in Cancun is the definition of getting away. From the moment you check in, you’re surrounded by natural elements. The design of the new resort, which is scheduled to open in September, is inspired by the jungle surrounding it, from the colorful fishponds and pristine white sand beach to a world-class spa designed to feel like the region’s unique natural swimming holes called cenotes.
Do as much or as little as you’d like. The resort offers an ideal blend of activities and relaxation. There are four pools, including a splash pool for kids and an adult-only option. And family members looking for a one-of-a-kind experience won’t want to miss the view from the property’s roller glide aerial ride.
5. Experience the Mexican Caribbean
Opening in December, the Royal Uno Resort and Spa is a multi-million-dollar renovation of beautiful beachfront property in Cancun. The focus is on authentic local styles and comfortable luxury. And every room comes with an ocean view!
Designed to be family-friendly, there are activities for all ages. Spend the day sailing or kayaking in the lagoon or lounging by one of the pools. The Kid’s Club offers a variety of fun activities, including sports, games, and arts and crafts. Relax under the pergolas on the sun deck and try out the array of onsite dining experiences. Restaurant options range from chef’s masterpieces and expansive buffets to casual and kid-friendly options, ensuring there’s a menu to fit every taste.
