Planning the perfect family vacation is a delicate balancing act. On one side of the scale, there’s the too-rigid itinerary that leaves kids feeling dragged along on mom and dad’s stuffy trip. On the other side, there’s the circus-like amusement park experience that leaves parents feeling anything but recharged. Curtain Bluff strikes the perfect balance between both sides, with ample activities to keep kids entertained yet within sight of the nearest hammock (which is conveniently serviced by a friendly beach concierge).
Headquartered in the shade of the palms on our calm-water beach, Cee Bee Kids Camp is home base for our younger guests. A daily activity lineup runs the gamut from crafting to crab races, while active pursuits like Hobie Cat sailing, snorkeling, waterskiing and court sports keep even the most energetic youngsters occupied all day. For the little ones, there’s a shaded sandbox with full jungle gym, while our game room offers a break from the sun with board games, computer games, and a wide-screen TV showing children’s favorites.
In the evening, enjoy family-friendly early dinners on the Tamarind Terrace at 6:00 PM. Later on, childcare staffers are available for hire to look after kids back in the room, freeing up parents for leisurely dinners and dancing to our nightly live bands under the stars.
“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.”
“Over the span of my long professional tennis career, I have been fortunate to play at many of the finest tennis centers in the world. So I know a good tennis center when I see it. I come to Curtain Bluff at least once a year.”
