Jamaica Resorts with Baby Clubs

Jamaica is undoubtedly a fabulous family vacation destination. There is a wide range of accommodation options at very different price points and with a number of different amenities.

Most resorts in Jamaica have rooms able to accommodate larger families with three kids or more, and most can arrange babysitting or nannies. A baby-friendly resort does not necessarily have to have a baby club. However, it is a nice amenity to have when traveling to Jamaica with a baby.

Baby Clubs, Not Just Babysitting…

Most hotels offer babysitting services at an additional cost for children of all ages. But the bonus of a baby club means you can often just pop by for an hour or two when it suits your schedule and/or your baby’s routine.

If your baby is an easy napper, you may want to drop them off at naptime. They’re supervised while they sleep, and you can steal a few moments to yourselves. Or perhaps you’d feel more comfortable letting your baby play in a safe, supervised, and air-conditioned area during awake time so you could hit the beach for a snooze or a snorkel. Either way, if you’re comfortable enough to leave your little one in the care of others, it’s nice to have that option.

Baby Clubs at resorts vary widely in terms of amenities and services available, and also – cost. There are not as many resorts in Jamaica with Baby Clubs as, say, Cuba or Dominican Republic. However, the Jamaica resorts with baby clubs are of incredibly high standards.

Jamaica Resorts with Baby Clubs…

Most resorts in Jamaica (with some very notable exceptions) are incredibly baby-friendly, but Jamaica resorts with baby clubs are rare. I reached out to hotels and waded through all the online information to find Jamaica resorts with baby clubs that offer supervised care and activities for infants and toddlers 0-4 years of age…

Holiday Inn Montego Bay, Jamaica

Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay

Located near Montego Bay0 (just about ten minutes from the airport), this Holiday Inn is an All-Inclusive resort that offers a baby club for infants as young as six months. Reviews are mixed for the hotel, but it certainly is a more affordable choice for an all-inclusive resort vacation in Jamaica. They offer “Kid Suites” and children 12-years-of-age and under stay, play, and eat for free.

Note: I was able to uncover very little about the baby club here.

It was just mentioned as “Baby Club” on several lists of what appeared to be recent listings from travel agents. If your heart is set on staying here, please double check with the hotel if a baby club is important to you.

Beaches Negril, Jamiaca

Beaches Negril Resort & Spa

The jewel in the crown of the Beaches brand is Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort (which is rumored to be closing in 2020!). However, their two resorts in Jamaica, while smaller, offer the same level of service in their child care programs, which are included in your stay.

Beaches Vacations are not inexpensive vacations, but they often offer great discounts and incentives on repeat stays, and the level of service is astounding and the food (and variety of it) is excellent.

The baby and child care rooms at Beaches Negril were spotless, and the caregivers were very loving and attentive. The only real difficulty here is competing with Big Bird and Cookie Monster for your toddler’s attention. Of all the Jamaica resorts with baby clubs, Beaches Resorts are truly the cream of the crop.

Franklyn D. Resort & Spa

FDR is not your typical resort with a baby club. This is the fabled Jamaican resort that offers each family staying there a “Vacation Nanny” to help with child care and housekeeping. There is a kids’ club onsite that the nannies often bring the kids to, but it’s not your usual staffed facility. It’s more like an area for the kids to play and do crafts where each child or family has individual supervision.

Since it’s so affordable to hire an extra nanny for the day ($20 USD from 9am – 4:40pm) many families with kids with a wide age gap often have a separate nanny specifically for the baby’s needs, so the bigger kids can go off and and have bigger kid fun.

Honestly, we absolutely loved Franklyn D. Resort. My son is too young to remember how lovely and attentive his nanny Lorraine was, but I’m not! (Review of Franklyn D. Resort & Spa)

Baby Club Basics:

  • Cost: Included. Additional nannies available for $20 & up
  • Age: 4 months and up

Jewel Runaway Bay, Jamiaca

Jewel Runaway Bay

This resort is located just next door to FDR, and offers a fantastic strip of beach as well as a number of family-welcoming amenities. With 62 connecting rooms, families can choose from several accommodation and bedding configurations providing privacy for parents but close proximity to the kids allowing for quality family time.

A Premier room can accommodate up to two children and two adults. And a suite could easily accommodate three children and two adults. Cribs can also be added to any room upon request. They no longer run a daily program for children under three. However, personalized Nanny services are available at an additional cost of $20 USD per child for the first hour, $15 USD per child for the second hour and $10 USD for the third hour and beyond. The Gem Counselors and Nannies at Jewel Runaway Bay are trained in First Aid, CPR and AED.

Way back when I was a travel agent, clients of mine came back from Jewel Runaway Bay, and said the staff were very caring and attentive.

Baby Club Basics:

  • Cost: $20 per child per hour ++
  • Age: 4 months and up

    Helpful posting, we are going to Jewel Runaway Bay and were informed that while the kids’ club (18 months +) is free, the nannies are available for hire at $7/hour during the daytime (until 11pm), $10/hr 11pm-2am, and $15/hr after 2am.

    • Corinne at #

      Thanks for the update, Virginia. Those seem like very reasonable rates!

    • Ashley at #

      Are the nannies for hire able to watch children under 18 months?

      • Corinne at #

        Hi Ashley! It depends on the resort, but for the most part, yes–if you hire a nanny they should be able to watch a child 18mos. and younger.

  3. Vacation Hunter at #

    I know this post is fairly oldecent, but the Sunset Beach resorts have been sold and are now Sunscape. The kids club age is now ages 3 and up.

  4. Rose at #

    If you dont stay at one of the resorts that have baby club can you still pay the fee and have your children participate?

    • Corinne at #

      Hi Rose! I think you need to be a guest of the resorts in order to have your kids take part in the baby club. You might be able to arrange a day rate if you contact the hotels directly. However, wherever you stay, I’m sure they can arrange a private caregiver if that’s what you’re looking for.
