Crown Paradise Club Cancun, previously a winner of FTF’s Top 10 Getaways for Tiny Travelers award, gets a fresh look in 2015.
Views of the calm blue sea and lush tropical vegetation await you at this high energy, moderately priced family resort. After a brief trip from the modern Cancun airport, you will be relaxing in your air-conditioned, terraced room overlooking Crown Paradise’s beachfront facilities, planning your week’s vacation. Choose from tennis, aqua-aerobics, windsurfing, beach volleyball, swimming in one of four pools – the list goes on and on. Plan to eat at seven themed restaurants (one adult-only) and two snack bars, where the food and service have been called both “ordinary” and “outstanding” and get ready for evening entertainment and dancing.
While you are busy staying fit or just relaxing on the white sand beach, your children (18 months to 12 years) will be under the supervision of a trained staff. The spotless Baby Paradise Club provides nursery care for those up to 3-years-old and its large glass windows enable moms and dads to sneak a peek whenever they like. The English-speaking staff is supervised by a trained early-childhood specialist; all have completed a mandatory course including First Aid and CPR. At the end of the day, parents are given reports on how their babies ate and slept.
The main component of The Kid’s Paradise Club (ages 4-12) is its noisy aquatic park with pool and water slides. Other kid’s activities include volleyball, treasure hunts, sand castle building, face painting and crafts. Both the Baby and Kid’s Paradise Clubs are free of charge, and open daily from 9am to 4:45pm and 6 to 9pm, and evening babysitting for a fee, can be arranged.
As teens need a space of their own to chill out, Teens Paradise (13-17 years) offers water slides, beach volleyball, a zip line and climbing wall. Kids can also enjoy themselves with video games, watch a movie at the Collage movie theater, or dance at the disco.
