We went to Beaches some years ago. It was pretty good and certainly catered to kids of all ages. I believe they have expanded it since. Don't know if it has got better or worse.

This is the time to ask Grandmom to keep junior for a few days.

When we went to Atlantis last year I saw lots of little kids everywhere. Made me think I should have picked another resort

of course Atlantis always comes to mind, but I don't know your budget. It is among the most pricey. The one we loved for small kids that is was FDR in Jamiaca and I am not a fan of Jamacia (spelling) I believe they also have one in St Kitts, but you will have to check that out. The thing we loved was the all day nanny, from about 9am til late afternoon. Check them out, you might be pleasantly surprised.\\ I have to add we went there many years ago, but we really enjoyed it. If it was for an adult vacation, no, too many families but we were with our daughter, son in law and their friends, all with small children including one toddler.

Nice if you have that option.

Have you considered doing a cruise instead? Assuming you are still in NJ, you know there are cruises for a limited time out of NYC. This way, you wouldn't have to put the toddler on a plane (yuck!) and they do have babysitting for kids and some go to Bahamas. We just went on this cruise recently and it was heavenly!

We would if grandma could! as it is, she'll be pushing 84 and cannot even carry my 25 pound son. It's too much for my in-laws.

That was my first suggestion to hubby! he isn't too fond of cruises. I like the idea of it when the kid is older like 3/4th grader kind of vacation.
