This was actually our first family vacation together, because although we've traveled with our boys before it was always to visit family or we would do an adults only trip without the kids. It was so lovely being all together and it made traveling easier being at a resort that specializes in families like Beaches.
I've stayed at all-inclusive resorts before with long buffet lines, dirty carpets, watered down drinks, low class guests and it left a bad taste in my mouth, but fortunately Beaches Resorts is on a different league with 5-star service.

Starting next month, there will also be free WiFi in every room and when you don't have a cell phone that works internationally, this is key for staying in touch with family back home. There's more to come though! Sandals/Beaches Resorts CEO Adam Stewart says their resorts could include bowling alleys, ice rinks and a movie theater. Wow!
When speaking about his staff Stewart said "The only time you will hear us say 'no' is when we say 'no problem.'" I loved that! We asked our room attendant for milk to put in our mini bar for the boys and by that afternoon it was there. *sigh* So helpful and these little courtesies made for a less stressful trip.
We could easily go back several times and not be bored as there's so much to do and we barely explored and experienced all that they have to offer. In fact, we only ate at a handful of their restaurants and could try all new ones next time. We can't wait to go again as the boys get older too and I'd also love to visit their other locations one day.
