)-- Bahamian Resort Beats Out More Than 200 Resorts for the #1 Title.
After a comparison of more than 200 resorts, Parents magazine has ranked Sheraton Grand Bahama Island Our Lucaya Resort as the number one beach resort for families in its May issue.
Parents magazine reviewed resorts throughout the U.S. and Caribbean, researching and comparing their value, children’s programs, family activities, menus, pools, as well as other amenities before bestowing Sheraton Grand Bahama Island Our Lucaya Resort the title of number one resort on its top ten list.
The Sheraton resort in the heart of Grand Bahama Island, just fifty-five miles from the south Florida coast, has long been a family favorite. Kids ages three through 12 head out on Bahamian nature adventures and learn local folklore and poetry at Camp Lucaya, Sheraton’s acclaimed supervised daylong children’s club.
Kids and parents alike can take turns shooting down a spiral water slide, spurting out into the Sugar Mill pool, one of three expansive pools at Sheraton, which also boasts a wading pool for little tykes.
Of course there’s no underestimating the 7.5-acre-long beach, perfect for catching some rays or frolicking about, building magnificent sandcastles in the white sand. Clear blue waters lap up against the shore and splash about as guests enjoy the ocean to its fullest – boating, snorkeling, parasailing, fishing, jet skiing and more. Safety first, is always the motto, and lifeguards are on duty throughout the day beachside and poolside.
Dining at Sheraton Grand Bahama Island Our Lucaya Resort can be as formal or informal as you please with four diverse restaurants and lounges to choose from. Classic favorites off the grill are sure to please finicky young eaters, while fresh fish and chops and sweet juice concoctions appease more mature tastes.
