Ways to Play For Kids Under 5
For the littlest ones in the family, you can’t go wrong with a splash in the surf or the pool. We recommend checking out the popular kid-friendly splash pad near the Octopool which also makes for great vacation photos—see some of our guest photos below! Let the kids safely play in the water and cool off at the same time. And when it’s time for a nap, we’ll set up your spot on our private beach with loungers and an umbrella. While the kids are sleeping, order one of Bongo’s signature frozen cocktails from a beach server and soak up that South Florida sunshine.

Our oceanfront room had great views and the kids loved the pool. We would love to come back for a longer stay next time. Thanks Pink Shell!
We’ve stayed here multiple times and never disappointed. The amenities and staff are amazing. We took advantage of the paddle board and kayak rentals included with our stay and had such a great time. The breakfast at Jacks is great and love the food and drink service by the Octopool from Bongos.
This resort is lovely. Its a great size and very clean. We just got back from 4 nights there and while the weather was not in our favor, the stay was very nice. Our suite was very clean. We brought sanitizing products, but felt confident in the cleanliness. The staff is really friendly from valet, to cleaning staff and dining staff. It was not too busy for us. The breakfast had plenty to choose from and the poolside bar and grill was well priced for food and drinks. I searched for a vacation spot for a while and really felt the resort fee went to good use here. We will be coming back.
This was our second visit to the resort. This place is family friendly and gorgeous. The room we stayed in was a captiva suite. We had a full kitchen and a living room. Bathroom was huge. Balcony was humongous. We also had an enclosed terrace. Fish tacos from the pool side bar were delicious. There is a kiddie pool area and three pools to choose from. We went in September and the crowds were manageable. Sand is super soft. We rented jet skis in property. Overall fabulous experience.
The only thing I can say is don't look any further this is a place you want to go. Kids activities, the pools are perfect, the beach is perfect and well maintained. You get what you pay for, I'm serious book your vacation and time away here you won't regret it.
