Anyone who has taken a vacation with their children in tow knows that the success of that vacation can depend on how you answer a few key questions.
“Are we there yet?”
“Does anyone have to go to the bathroom?”
“Daddy, can we go shark fishing?”
Okay, so that last one might have been asked by one particular seven year-old boy after finding out we were vacationing just moments away from the Pacific Ocean. While we didn’t go shark fishing, we did go to the beach. But the question sheds some light on the child’s imagination: while most adults might think “ocean… beach”, a seven year-old is likely to think “ocean… sharks! Submarines! If crabs can walk, can they dance?” The key questions then become, “How do we keep the kids entertained on vacation? What is there for the kids to do?”
In Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit, the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa answers those questions – and more – with a new hotel within a hotel called Family Selection. Family Selection offers exclusive facilities and amenities, personalized services and premium products, all designed with an eye toward keeping both adults and children engaged in a great vacation environment.
Family Selection puts the kids in charge of their vacation, branding each child “Family Boss” and providing age-appropriate Family Boss welcome kits. The kids have specific clubs designed for their age groups: Baby Club is set up for toddlers between 1 and 3; Mini Club welcomes children from ages 4 to 12; youths from age 13 to 17 will enjoy the Teen Black & White Club. All clubs offer a range of fun activities and amenities, including pool and water park fun, arts & crafts, movies, video games, dancing, play groups and theatre, and more.
In-suite amenities are designed specifically for kids’ enjoyment, as well. Your child will enjoy feeling posh in their mini-bathrobe and slippers while ordering from the pillow menu and contemplating the virtues of turn-down service. A Family Host is available for assistance during your stay, and kids and adults alike will appreciate the fact that resort staff enjoy treating children with care and respect. This is definitely a resort where families can and will feel like valued guests.
Family Selection within Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa is all-inclusive with all kinds of family fun included. WestJet Vacations offers packages with flexible durations so you can plan the trip that suits you best. After visiting, it’s fair to imagine that the next question you might hear is “Can we go on vacation to Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa again?”
