Finding a resort that works for all members of a family is not always so easy. Yet Curtain Bluff seems to have cracked the code…so much so that many of our families return year after year, quickly turning their annual vacation into a family tradition. Centered around a shaded “basecamp” down on the calm-water beach, activities range from chocolate making to crab races, mocktail lessons at the bar to designing wind chimes.
The resort is quiet and self-contained, with all the activities included in the room rate (see WHAT’S INCLUDED). Which means that you and your kids can sail Hobie Cats and Windsurfers, dive, water-ski, go on snorkeling trips, and play tennis, basketball, squash, bocce and shuffleboard as often as you want, at no extra cost. There is a shaded sandbox with full Jungle Gym for the little ones. We have a Games Room designed specifically for our younger guests and equipped with board games, computers (loaded with all the latest video games) and a wide-screen TV (with cable and DVD player) on which we show age-sensitive films.
For our youngest guests, early dinners are served outside on the Tamarind Terrace at 6:00 PM. Babysitters (arranged for an extra charge) can then look after children back in the room, freeing up parents for leisurely dinners and dancing to our nightly live bands.
The CEEBEE KIDS CLUB, that is. Curtain Bluff has launched its first full-time kids camp so our younger guests can make friends and experience the resort on their own terms. Run by a capable and creative team, it’s free and available five days a week — 9:00 am-12:30 pm and 1:30 pm-4 pm — with more days added at child-busy holiday times like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Presidents Week, Spring Break, and the summer holidays.
Now how cool is that!
“Looking for that one magical resort where the kids have fun and you actually get to relax? It exists, I found it in Antigua, a Caribbean island a 4 1/2 hour flight from New York. Curtain Bluff has stacked up ‘World’s Best’ awards, but that doesn’t impress kids – here’s what does.” READ MORE
