Our family stayed in the newly updated Aguamarina Family Oasis at Club Medʼs Cancun Yucatan resort, located at the tip of the iconic Riviera Maya. This outstanding property offers an abundance of sports and activities for all ages – both in and out of the water. The family area is located on the southern edge of the lush landscape between the Caribbean Sea and a beautiful lagoon. It’s secluded and peaceful – ideal for a relaxed family getaway and exactly what I needed after a busy few months.
The oceanfront family suites were incredible. There was a separate bedroom and bathroom for my four-year-old son and six-year-old daughter, so our evening could go on long after the kids were in bed. The balcony overlooking the ocean included an outdoor shower and a comfortable chaise lounge, which is where I sat each morning, before the kids woke up, to enjoy my morning cup of coffee.
If that’s not enough, Aguamarina has its own swimming pool with a very shallow entry, perfect for even the smallest children. There were plenty of lounge chairs, even kid-sized ones, to recline on while kids splashed in the water. The restaurant caters to children and the menu offers kid-friendly beverages and snacks. Each afternoon, they offered a different treat, from churros – my kids’ personal favourite – to popcorn to shaved ice.
Club Med Cancun is located a short 15-minute drive from the airport, which is important when you’re travelling with young kids. Club Med will organize private airport transfer for you and the family. It’s little things like this that really make for a luxurious and relaxing experience for parents.
