Best resort for a day with a child

I'm planning our excursions for our upcoming cruise and am stuck on what to do in St. Lucia. We have a three year old, so we don't want to spend all day driving around the island. We're thinking of making this a beach day, and the idea of an all-inclusive resort sounds great. Are there any that a) are good for children and b) are not too terribly far from the cruise port?

If not, any other other suggestions for what to do while in port would be greatly appreciated.

There are 2 family AI resorts in the north of the island, Morgan Bay Resort and Smugglers Cove Resort, 20 and 30 or so minutes form the port, respectively. Both have several pools, beach, watersports, bars and restaurants, etc. I have no idea if either currenlty offer day passes - they both did when they were part of the Almond resort chain, but both have changed ownership in the last year or so and have changed policies. You would have to contact the resorts direct to find out about possible day passes, costs and inclusions.

If all you want is a beach day - that is easily arranged without paying for resort day passes though. Reduit Beach in Rodney Bay has chairs/umbrellas for hire (around $20US for 2 chairs & umbrella), lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance, including several right on the beach, watersports for hire, etc. About 30 minutes from the port, very easy to get a taxi there and a taxi to return. Great long stretch of beach with calm swimming waters. Probably your least expensive, best bet!

Enjoy your visit.

Windjammer also worth looking at and they do an AI deal. However may be cheaper to pay as you go. There is a nice children's pool near the main pool on the beach and the sea is very calm. Jammers Bar is right in the beach and they do children's portions and menu. Towels provided. As long as it is not a very busy period they are happy to have people come for the day. Only 15 minutes from Castries....
