One of Jamaica’s newest and most luxurious beach resorts that welcomes children, Royalton Blue Waters opened in 2017 and caters very well to families with an on-site lazy river, separate kids and teens clubs, and access to the water park at the sister property next door, which boasts impressive waterslides. The abundance of kids here isn’t ideal for couples; but the resort offers an excellent white-sand beachfront with turquoise water (it’s one of the best in all of Jamaica), a nice infinity pool with a large swim-up bar overlooking the beach (plus there’s the lazy river, which serves as a second pool), good restaurants for an all-inclusive with top notch variety, a modern teens club with PlayStation lounges, a beautiful spa with a hydrotherapy circuit and a range of treatments, and state-of-the-art accommodations with tasteful décor and modern amenities. The rooms come with comfortable beds, high thread count sheets, large flat-screen TVs, rain showers, stocked minibars, and balconies or terraces; some have jacuzzis, sitting areas with pull-out couches, and/or walk-in closets. Up to three-bedroom suites are available. Activities include tennis on unique FieldTurf courts, cooking classes, dance classes, sailing, kayaking, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, and beach volleyball. The outstanding fitness center hosts a variety of instructor-led classes such as TRX, kickboxing, Aqua Fit, Beach Bootcamp, and various styles of yoga classes. Guests have access to the amenities of Royalton White Sands (A1) next door, which is a slight step down in terms of beach and room quality (but also rates).
Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site for guests staying a minimum of three nights and returning to the United States.
