What could make paradise even better? The perfect babysitter, and several resorts offer just that through their children's programs. Parents enjoy peace of mind and some relaxing time to themselves while kids enjoy exciting activities designed just for them.
The Ritz-Carlton, Naples has taken the concept of a children's program to a whole new level with "Nature's Wonders." Led by the resort's team of certified Master Naturalists, this environmentally focused program lets your child interact with nature in a variety of exciting experiences. Explorations begin at the program's onsite headquarters, where 11 aquariums offer a fascinating look at Florida's ecosystems and two touch tanks allow your child to hold live turtles and starfish. A miniature lab, complete with microscopes, slides and Petri dishes, helps your budding marine biologist explore a world not seen by the naked eye. Also housed at the center is The Nature Vision Theater, where National Geographic specials, Discovery programs and Disney movies are shown. This outstanding program is also offered to guests staying at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples.
The Ritz-Carlton provides a list of names for babysitting services so parents can escape for a romantic evening together. And if you're traveling with a toddler, the Ritz-Carlton offers the P.O.L.O. (Protect Our Little Ones) Program, which includes blocking electrical outlets from little fingers and removing alcoholic beverages from the in-room refrigerator to make room for other necessities.
The Kids Club at the Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club offers a variety of fun activities for children 5-12 under the supervision of their caring and energetic hotel staff. Activities including beach walks and face painting entertain younger children while volleyball tournaments and beachside scavenger hunts grip teenagers.
Introduce your tribe to Tiki Tribe at the JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort, and they're sure to have plenty of fun packed into their summer vacation. There's never a dull moment—activities change daily and the schedule is listed online. The Marriott's expert staff keeps a careful eye on your children and ensures big adventures for your little ones.
