Summer May be Ending But the Family Fun Continues at the Gran Caribe Real in Cancun!

The All-Inclusive Resort Extends its Kids 12 & Under Stay, Eat & Play Free, Year Round

CANCUN, Mexico,  — Family vacations don’t have to end because summer is officially over. The all-inclusive family-friendly, beachfront, Gran Caribe Real in Cancun is extending its Kids Stay, Eat & Play Free program year round through December 23, 2010 (certain blackout dates may apply).

“We decided to extend the program past the traditional summer vacation because our guests are telling us that more and more school districts are changing school calendars and providing vacation days throughout the year to complement what had been a traditionally long summer vacation,” said Fernando Garcia, Managing Director for Real Resorts which owns and operates the Gran Caribe Real. “It makes sense for us to continue to offer families a great value opportunity to travel with their kids year round,” added Garcia.

The Gran Caribe Real Cancun is located beachfront on the newly refurbished and expanded white Caribbean sand. It is in the center of Cancun’s popular Hotel Zone. The resort offers all-inclusive family vacation packages in its Family Suites, Gran Master and Presidential Suites. Family friendly rates are available that welcome up to two children, 12 and under for free, when sharing a Family Junior Suite with two paying adults, and teens ages 13 to 17 receive a 40% discount when sharing a suite with two paying adults. In addition, the Family Suites offer bunk bed configurations for even more room and more fun! All children also enjoy a special kid’s check-in.

And when families stay in a Master or Presidential Suite up to three children under 12 can stay for free and enjoy specially sized robes and slippers in the suites. And families staying for a minimum of five nights in an Ocean Front suite or higher at The Gran Caribe Real Cancun families receive a complimentary ‘swim with the dolphins’ experience for one person, valued at $140. Additional family members can also enjoy the experience at a 50% discount.

New this year, the resort has expanded its Kids Club and calls the new concept Oki Fun World. It includes the resort’s one-of-a-kind water escape, Oki Splash® and the Oki® Kids Club where children from four to twelve enjoy a full array of activities throughout the day and evening including poolside sandcastle building, face-painting, hula-hooping, drama classes and countless other crafts and activities. While teens can participate in the Resort’s unique T-Zone program and lounge in an age appropriate setting or indulge in activities such as a poolside manicure, a game of beach volleyball, or pick and choose among the waterslides, pools or just soak and swim the day away. There is also ping-pong and the indoor Oki Fun World which includes the video arcade.
