Which Beaches Resort is the best?

I have been to all the Beaches Resorts many times and I do have my favorites that I will share.  I also want to help you decide on the best Beaches Resort for your family vacation based on some other factors (Budget, Amenities, Time, Location, Activities and more). Now there are three Beaches Resorts and all three are great choices for an all inclusive Caribbean family vacation, but each one is defiantly unique.

I am also happy to help you with any additional questions you might have and have added links to the latest Beaches Resort Discounts too.

 

Key Takeaways

 

Which Beaches Resort Is The Best For You?

 

I am happy to help you one-on-one select the perfect Beaches resort for you and your family.  There is no cost working with my team here at Pixie Vacations to plan and book your Beaches Vacation.  I just need some additional details to help you plan your perfect all inclusive family vacation.

Which Beaches Resort is the best for you?   Of the three Beaches Resorts I would classify Beaches Turks & Caicos as the ultimate all-inclusive for families in the Caribbean.  That said it’s also going to come in at the highest vacation price point in most cases.  Flights to Turks & Caicos can be expensive vs flights to Jamaica so that alone can drive your Beaches family vacation price up.

Look, you are going to have a fantastic family vacation at any of the three Beaches Resorts.  All have very similar amenities and have great staff.

Which Beaches Resort is the Best?

 

If I had to pick just from my personal favorite and my kids favorite, it’s Beaches Turks & Caicos.  But hey, my kids love all of the Beaches Resorts and would be happy on a family vacation at any of the three Beaches Resorts.  I personally like Turks and Caico just because the resort is the largest, has the largest free water park.

Which Beaches Resort is Better In Jamaica

 

There are two Beaches Resorts in Jamaica:  Beaches Negril and Beaches Ocho Rios.  For the Beach itself Beaches Negril is on the famous 7 mile beach.  Yes there are vendors from Jamaica on this beach, but just nicely tell them you are not interested or feel free to purchase what they have.  Beaches Ocho Rios is located close to the tourist activities on Jamaica so that resort is great if you want to swim with the dolphins or see Dunns River Falls.  But overall I like Beaches Negril.  Beaches Negril just has a nicer resort layout, more updated rooms, and of course the famous 7 miles beach.

Which Beaches Resort in Jamaica is Closest to the Airport

 

Beaches Ocho Rios is 1 hour and 45 minutes from Montego Bay
Beaches Negril is 80 minutes from Montego Bay

 

Both resorts come with free resort transfers to and from the resort.  The shuttle bus (van) also stops for a restroom break.  The thing to remember is that Beaches will schedule your shuttle well before your return home flight time.  Beaches wants you at the airport 3 hours before your flight departure.  So if you have an early return home flight, add 3 hours and then add the travel time.  That can make for a really early departure time from your hotel back home.

Beaches Resorts good for families

Are Beaches Resorts Good For Families?

 

The short answer is YES!  Beaches Resorts are designed for families and my kids always have an amazing time.  My kids love it so much it becomes difficult to book another family vacation because they always want to go back to Beaches.  If you are a couple, you might want to book Sandals Resorts instead.  Sandals Resorts are also owned by the same company and there are 18 Sandals Resorts all over the Caribbean.  Sandals Resorts have no kids.

How Many Beaches Resorts Are There?

 

There are three Beaches resorts.  There are plans for additional Beaches Resorts by so far we still just have the three Beaches Resorts.  Two of teh resorts are in Jamaica and one is on Turks and Caicos.

Beaches Resorts Weddings

Does Beaches Resorts do Weddings?

 

Yes Beaches Resorts does have weddings and when I am there I see a lot of families getting married.  Each family has their own special spot for the reception, dinner, cocktail parties etc.  This is actually very affordable for a destination wedding and I already told my two daughters I’ll pay for a Beaches Wedding.  There are some amazing special offers on Beaches Weddings here.

Which Beaches Resort is the Cheapest

 

When it comes to total price Beaches Ocho Rios usually comes in that the most affordable price point.  This is because flights to jamaica usually price less than Turks and Caicos and also Beaches Ocho Rios has more standard room categories available.

Beaches Resort – Turks and Caicos

AWARD – Best Beaches Resort

 

Of the Three Beaches Resorts this one is my favorite.  I go to Beaches Turks and Caicos usually one a year if not more and it’s also a favorite with my wife and two girls.

Why is Beaches Turks & Caicos my favorite Beaches Resort?

1. First off the resort is just 15 minutes from the airport.  This means more family fun time at Beaches Resort and no curve mountain roads too.

2. Beaches Turks and Caico is the largest of the three Beaches Resort Properties.  Now being the biggest of the all inclusive resorts does not just make it better but it does mean there are many many amenities, pools, dining options and the largest INCLUDED water park of all three Beaches Resorts.  Beaches Turks & Caicos in my opinion in the best Beach resort hands down.

If you are looking for a luxurious and unforgettable tropical escape, look no further than Beaches Resort Turks and Caicos. Nestled in the heart of the Caribbean, this all-inclusive family-friendly resort offers a sublime mix of natural beauty, indulgent amenities, and warm hospitality. In this review, l will explore the highlights of Beaches Resort Turks and Caicos and provide valuable tips for those considering booking a vacation in this tropical paradise.

Beaches Resort Family vacation best deals

Beaches Resort Overview:

Beaches Resort Turks and Caicos is All Inclusive and when I say ALL Inclusive I mean my kids can eat, drink, and do all sorts of activities without grabbing me of my credit card.  Now that’s a family vacation. If you have kids you know how painful it is to pull out the cash for every little thing.  I literally put my wallet in the room safe when I check in at Beaches and I don’t spend a dime.

If you are a Beach person the beach at this resort is steps away from the pristine Grace Bay.   This beach is exactly what you think of when you see an Instagram photo of white sand, blue water and nobody else in your photos.  Grace Bay has been consistently ranked as one of the world’s best beaches. If you want to go scuba diving, snorkeling, take our a sail boat, paddle boards, it’s all included.  Also the beach has a nice shallow entry and is crystal clear.  I know my kids like to see what’s swimming around them and Grace Bay is calm and the perfect family beach.

Beachs Turks Accommodations:

The resort boasts a diverse selection of accommodations, ranging from spacious rooms to luxurious suites and even private villas. Each option is thoughtfully designed to provide maximum comfort and convenience, with many offering breathtaking views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Families will appreciate the suite options with multiple bedrooms, while couples seeking a romantic retreat can opt for secluded beachfront rooms.

Let me give you the inside scoop on these Beaches Rooms.  I have a lot to say.  First I would say book your budget.  I go over this in the Beaches Turks and Caicos Insiders Tips Video below.  So watch that video also.  When I say book within your famil budget I mean this for all three BEaches Resorts.  Unlike other all inclusive Caribbean resorts, Beaches gives everyone the same all inclusive benefits.  It does not matter if you booked the entry level French Village room or the Old Key West Villa with a private pool that sleeps 10.  Each room category at Beaches gives everyone access to the same dining, drinks, water sports, you get the idea.

Kids Water Park at Beaches Resort

One of the resort’s standout features is its enormous waterpark, complete with thrilling slides, lazy rivers, and splash zones. The waterpark guarantees endless entertainment for the entire family.

Negril Beaches Resort

Beaches Resort – Negril

My second favorite Beaches Resort is Negril.  Turks and Caicos is hard to beat but the friendly people in Jamaica and the famous 7 mile beach makes this an amazing Beaches Resort.  Now this resort is a drive from the Montego Bay airport.  Transfers are included so that is very nice.  But this does mean you have a good 60 minutes ride, or a free tour of Jamaica as I look at it.
