Jamaica: Runaway Bay, Franklyn D. Resort & Spa – Moms Stay Free in May.

I like how this sounds. Someone at FDR Resorts gets it. If mom is happy then the whole family will have a better vacation. So, jump-start your summer with your kids on Jamaica’s north coast. Why not?

Here’s the deal. Franklyn D. Resort & Spa and Pebbles Resort have announced mothers will stay for free during the month of May as a thank you for all that they do. This benefit applies to moms arriving at either resort with dad and kids (1st May through 4th June, 2010).

Franklyn D. Resort & Spa and Pebbles Resort offer family holidays as they should be – small, private, caring, elegant, and fun with a chance to experience what a real Jamaican all-inclusive vacation should be.  Both FDR Resorts offer two-bedroom suites which translate to more comfort for vacationing families and they are the only resorts in the Caribbean whose prices include a dedicated Vacation Nanny for each family. The nanny acts as the family’s vacation assistant and will spend as little or as much time with the family as needed. She helps out with the small hassles including rinsing out the kids swimsuits, reading stories, ensuring the kids are fed and bathed plus assisting with the planning of daily vacation activities. The whole idea is for mom (and dad too) to  enjoy a tropical family vacation and return home feeling well rested and rejuvenated.

Here’s the down low.

It’s all about being the best at what you have decided to do. And in the resort business it really only matters when your guests say the word best along with your name and their vacation. Before I blab on about why these two resorts work at being the best for families (specifically for moms who need a break) you should know that plenty of others share my opinion. If you follow TripAdvisor.com then you will be happy to learn that for 2009 Franklyn D. Resort & Spa won “Best for Families, Mexico/Caribbean” and Pebbles Resort was dubbed ”Best for Families, Mexico/Caribbean” as well as ”Best for Families, Mexico/Caribbean”.

Franklyn D. Resort & Spa is Jamaica’s boutique, all-suite, all-inclusive resort for families that allows guests to vacation in a private setting similar to that of an elegant Jamaican home, complete with a dedicated Vacation Nanny who is there to assist the family from check-in to check-out.  This all-inclusive holiday features great meals from a choice of three restaurants and an all day grill, open bar, wine, and a host of activities from  live entertainment, tennis, basketball, kayaking, sailing, free wireless, games room, interactive pre-teens and teen’s activities and a Mini Club for children. Located on property is an Oceanfront Spa with European and Asian body treatments and only two minutes away, is a Championship 18 hole golf course for Mom and Dad.  PADI Certified Scuba Diving at great reefs in the area is also available on property.  Accommodations at the Resort are in seventy-seven beautifully decorated large family suites with newly added features such as iPod Docks and DVD Players.

A vacation at Pebbles Resort allows families to experience a Real Jamaican vacation with a hint of adventure. As with its sister property Franklyn D. Resort & Spa, each family is assigned a dedicated Vacation Nanny to assist the family from check-in to check-out.  In addition to all-inclusive features such as meals from a choice of restaurants, bar drinks, live entertainment, tennis, basketball,  kayaking, free wireless, interactive and comprehensive programs from kids to teens, Pebbles Resort offers a taste of Jamaica with Jamaican cooking classes and warm Jamaican hospitality. An Oceanfront Spa and PADI Certified Scuba Diving is located on property, as well as a host of optional tours are nearby. Ninety six deluxe junior suites stretch along a 600’ beach.

Make it happen. With the Moms Stay Free promotion at Franklyn D. Resort & Spa, prices start at US$310 per night for dad. At Pebbles Resort prices begin at US$230 per night for dad.  For reservations and information, contact your travel agent or FDR Resorts toll-free 1-888-FDR-KIDS or www.fdrfamily.com
