Starfish Trelawny Resort & Spa

This beachfront wonderland on Jamaica’s north shore could be the best family resort in the entire Caribbean, with four pools, two waterslides, a rock-climbing wall, flying-trapeze lessons, PG-rated soap-bubble disco parties, and an almost endless slate of other kid-friendly activities. Run with no small panache by SuperClubs, the resort also offers something for Mom and Dad: a full-service spa and three distinctly adult restaurants featuring Japanese, Italian, and Mediterranean cuisine. Other activities include tennis, golf, snorkeling, and scuba diving, with resort courses and first dives that parents and kids can try together. The 311 cheery yellow-and-white guest rooms have views of either the mountains or the ocean and are housed in the main building’s four towers; 39 stand-alone villas are also available.

Tip: Take a break from the kids with a splash down the adults-only 84-foot-long waterslide.

Room to Book: Garden View cottages, which are as close to the action at the pools as you can get and offer two separate bedrooms with private baths.
