It’s hard to imagine a more family-centric resort than the Grand Oasis Palm.
With 50,000 square feet of dedicated kid space that includes everything from the usual pools and splash pads to over-the-top water trampolines, a separate beach club and a Pirate area, it’s no wonder that they bill themselves as the most complete family-friendly resort in Cancun. With so much on offer, it’s a wonder that families don’t plan every vacation around a stay there.
Kid-Friendly Restaurants. As every parent knows, dining out with a child can be a challenge that tests even the strongest mettle. Luckily, The Grand Oasis Palm has a host of family-friendly restaurants as well as two kids-only restaurants-- Piratas del Caribe Food Court and Sweet Palm at Baby Blue Crab—that are sure to please even the finickiest eater. Kids can dine on pint-sized burgers, tacos and chicken nuggets and cap off a night of perfection with ice cream and other treats. And for budding Nigella Lawsons or Jamie Olivers, there is The Kitchen, which offers cooking classes to the junior set.
Grown-ups, keep out! The Grand Oasis Palm’s Kid Club not only tailors activities to kids, but makes everything kid-sized, from sunbeds to meals. So whether it’s climbing an iceberg, chilling on the designated kids’ beach or floating through the wading pool on inner tubes, it’s all just for kids. The Splash Zone offers a splash area with mushroom fountain, water trampolines and slides, pools and a wading pool for the littlest guests. Children will also revel in the fully equipped playground and enjoy performances from clowns, comedy acts and dancers. The fun doesn’t stop there, however. In fact, there’s plenty more.
