The Bahamas has a variety of hotels and resorts situated along pink sand beaches and crystal blue oceanfront areas. But with all of the islands in the Bahamas offering something different, it can be difficult to decide which to visit. Choose from the glitz and glam of large resorts with entertainment for both adults and kids, or the quiet seaside settings, with water sports and adventures for all ages. On your next vacation to the Bahamas, stay at one of these 10 best hotels for a great family getaway.
1. The Reef Atlantis
Built in 2008 on Paradise Island, The Reef Atlantis is a part of the Atlantis Resort, but is set apart from the other properties, allowing for quiet, exclusive family accommodations. Guestrooms and suites have an Upper East Side apartment feeling, rather than one of South Beach, but the little details and touches, like fishing-net chairs and driftwood remind families that they are in the Bahamas. All 500 rooms are apartments, and include multiple beds and kitchens. Plus, the best part about staying at The Reef Atlantis is that guests have access to all of the fun at the resort Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the water park, pools, beach, kids” clubs, casinos, restaurants, and more.
2. Sunrise Beach Clubs and Villas
What sets the Sunrise Beach Clubs and Villas apart are its one- to five-bedroom villas offering a wide range of accommodations and price points, allowing extended families and friends to easily stay together. Families also love the quiet setting on Paradise Island, just minutes from the hubbub of activity and numerous restaurants and shops at the Atlantis Resort, as well as the short walk to historic downtown Nassau. Extra perks at Sunrise Beach include grocery provisioning, fully equipped kitchens, sofa beds and rollaways, a separate children’s pool, and exceptional snorkeling and water sports.
3. Andros Beach Club
Located on 4 miles of private sand, the Andros Beach Club is perfect for families who want an oceanfront getaway to South Andros Island in the Bahamas. Start with fishing and swimming and work your way up to snorkeling, kayaking and diving with children and teens by the end of your stay. Family meals can be had onsite with one of the various all-inclusive plans or at local restaurants on the island. Babysitting is also available for parents who want to plan a date night at a romantic waterfront restaurant. Retreat to accommodations complete with one, two or three bedrooms, porches with hammocks and even full kitchens.
