With the sun kissed Caribbean beach and six sparkling pools always only a few steps away, guests’ stays are ﬁlled with tropical relaxation and memorable experiences, and everything else is the concierge’s concern. New Baby and Toddler Inclusive Amenities make travel easier by providing baby gear essentials including organic baby food, freshly made by the resort’s talented chefs. There’s big fun for families of all ages including an unforgettable, newly branded kid’s program Azulitos, specifically designed for ages 4-12 years old in nine dedicated themed neighborhoods hosting a variety of activities from cooking classes and water balloon parties, to kid’s yoga and private movie theater experiences.
