I had been to Parrot Cay before to take advantage of their amazing COMO Shambhala spa retreat and fell in love with the island. Prior to my first visit I did not realize that the Resort had villas that could accommodate families so on my return home my husband and I decided this would be the spot for our next family vacation.
From the moment we cleared customs & immigration there was a Parrot Cay representative to meet us and took care of all the nagging details of carting baggage. We had a quick car ride to their private dock then on to the speed boat for our 35 minute speed ride to the island. My girls loved this as they felt like adventurers heading off to their own Robinson Crusoe get-a-way.
We had a one bedroom beach villa which offered complete privacy for the kids to run around and play without any thought to disturbing neighboring guests. We had a plunge pool and then our own private pathway to the beach! In the morning the family would walk along the beach in our PJs soaking up the Caribbean warmth and playing cast away. For the frazzled working parents it was the perfect opportunity to disconnect from the world and reconnect with our family.
It’s a great place for kids without being too kiddie. Children are so welcomed (it’s not just a honeymoon destination) but there is no screaming kids clubs etc. The Resort did provide for tailor made kids activities program, but we passed on this as we wanted and needed some great bonding time with our girls.
My girls loved the main infinity pool and we spent all our mornings there. We would then have lunch at the delicious poolside restaurant, then head down to the beach. We kayaked, built sand castles or gathered sea shells.
What made this vacation so great was that Parrot Cay offered everything for all of us. My 6 and 3 year girls loved the sun, pool and beach and were so entertained and my husband and I got to do some great quality bonding with them. The adults had individual time as we escaped to our spa treatments, and we were also able to have wonderful romantic couple time. Parrot Cay gave us the ultimate family vacation; the resort, the food, the service, the room, the atmosphere, Parrot Cay lived up to its billing… paradise!
Because I had such a great time at Parrot Cay, I chose their sister properties for my girlfriend Asia trip.
