Where to go?

Travelling Feb 4th for a week with my husband and two kids(4/6)

Looking for a great place for kids but still authentic and unique. Not too busy, Entertainment for the kids. I love going to new places, but willing to return to a same destinations.

We've been to Mexico (huatuco and Mayan) Jamaica twice, costa Rica (kids are two young for this destination), Bahamas, Dominican My husband would prefer not to return to DR even though it's been 10yrs since we went. And even though we've never been to Cuba we still aren't convinced.

I'd loved to see more of the islands Aruba, Antigua, US virgin island! Grand caymen etc, but price is always a factor

I have the added bonus as an airline employee for airline deals, but that's is only on flight load availability which makes it challenging and risky.

Any help?? Suggestions

Just looked up Varrandah in Antigua, looks gorgeous, but is it enough for the kids?

I travelled to Antigua/Verandah Resort and Spa and stayed with my partner but also with friends that had children aged 10-16.

There are not alot of activities for children but they do have a play and some activities for the children to do in the day and they have a small games room. In the evening the entertainment i would say was more for adults as it was normally a band or dancers.

The children in our party didnt stop in the day with the activities by the beach and loved it. Amazing Hotel.

The great thing about the Verandah and it's sister, The St James Club, is that they both have fabulous 'Kids Clubs." The Verandah also has a teen room with Wii. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed the SJC's kids club as a child and now as a teen, even ventures to play Wii in the Verandah's teen room. Also, new this year at the Verandah is a mini golf course. Lots to do and enjoy at both resorts.
