Kid Friendly Vacations at Sandy Point Resorts


Kids are in the pool, parents are lounging in the shade reading, no one has any cares other than what fun new restaurant should they try for dinner. Ah, family vacations on Ambergris Caye.  Sandy Point Resorts has a mix of four family-friendly resorts. Belize is a fantastic destination to travel with the whole family to.  It is English speaking, very friendly local people and with main hubs throughout North America, travel time is about half a day, depending on your starting location.

Babies and toddlers are happy to sit in the shallow end of the pool splashing or diligently filling and emptying cups of water and sand.  Add some fresh tropical fruits to snack on and they are likely to be content.  Combing the shoreline for seashells and watching for fish and stingrays on the dock can round out your day with the youngest set.  A suite just a few steps away that you can retreat into during the heat of the day for naps helps to keep a familiar schedule.  For the grade-school crowd, the pool is again the place to be!  Older kids can enjoy having a whole resort to explore and will certainly take advantage of the many resort amenities.  Bicycle or golf cart rentals are a great way to get out and see more of the island as well. All of our resorts offer complimentary SUP boards and kayaks that can be used along the shore to explore.

Coco Beach Resort has an epic water slide, enjoyed by kids of all ages, and even the kids at heart.  There is a swim-up pool bar for the adults along with pool-side dining for a relaxed setting with a view.  Coco Café offers a great breakfast menu in the mornings with your favorite coffee choice served all day.  With a variety of suites available, it’s easy to find the best fit for your family.
