A Closer Look at Beaches Ocho Rios

If you are looking for a beachfront getaway for the entire family, you must take a closer look at Beaches Ocho Rios, a Spa, Golf, and Waterpark Resort located on the beautiful island of Jamaica.

Beaches Ocho Rios caters to families by allowing adults to share alone time while the kids are pampered by the certified nannies in the Kids Camp, and kids of all ages can enjoy fun and games with Elmo and Friends in the Sesame Street Caribbean Adventure. Families looking to spend time together have endless opportunities with daily activities and excursions, nightly entertainment, and golfing is available at the nearby Sandals Golf and Country Club, with a free 1-hour golf clinic available to children and private lessons with golf pro’s are available for both adults and children for an extra cost.

Let’s not just skip over the amazing Kids Camps that Beaches Resorts are known for. This area is specially designed to accommodate guests 17 years and under. Activities are varied to ensure that every child has a fun-filled and memorable vacation. Facilities are manned by efficient and enthusiastic co-coordinators between the hours of 9am – 9pm daily. Private nanny babysitting is also available for an additional cost per hour for up to three children.

  • Pre Adolescent 8-10 yrs
  • Tweens 11-14 yrs

The Pirates Island Water Park provides guests with a splash-tastic vacation experience. The Water Park sits on an expansive 27,000 sq ft. area. There are six kiddie slides, allowing for Beaches youngest guests to slip n’ slide their way into a memorable Caribbean vacation. A treasure trove of wet and wild fun, the Water Park also includes a Treasure Isle Aqua-Play area, complete with water cannons and a treasure chest. For the resort’s tiniest Water Park enthusiast, Pirates Island unveils a kid’s zone and zero-entry kiddie pool complete with a misting crab, a squirting sea turtle, and a splashing seahorse. For the not-so-young but young at heart, the Water Park features a tube slide, a body slide, and a speed slide, all perfect for a day of coolin’ down beneath the Caribbean sun. The Water Park also has a Water Crawl Cargo Net Aqua-Play Structure, complete with sea creature-themed stepping-stones including a starfish, an oyster shell, and a nautilus shell, made from soft-play resilient foam.

Watersports available include kayaks, windsurfing, paddleboards, snorkeling, banana boat rides, scuba diving, glass-bottom boats, aqua-trikes, and more! There is also a fun bubble-maker program available for children 8 years and older. This program introduces scuba in a pool setting through fun games and activities.

Families can join the Sesame Street characters at an exclusive breakfast with Zoe, Cookie Monster, Super Grover 2.0, Bert and Ernie, Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Oscar the Grouch, and Big Bird. There are also private character birthday parties and a “nightly tuck-in” available.

Adults can treat themselves to a day of relaxation at the Red Lane Spa, starting with a Red Lane Rejuvenation Specialist who is dedicated to creating an incomparable experience with a focus on connection, time, and love. Spa treatments are always adapted to fit your own personal preferences. Adults are also able to relax and mingle with friends on the terrace at the adults-only Opa Sunset Bar overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
