1. Wyndham Grand Rio Mar Puerto Rico Golf & Beach Resort

Rio Grande

For more than 20 years, the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar has made family dreams come true. 

At the intersection of the El Yunque rainforest and miles of pristine beaches, this resort overlooks the breathtaking, picturesque sea.

Daily activities vary but include such fun as iguana feedings, pool games, water aerobics, dart games, blow pong, bingo, karaoke, and s’mores.

The resort’s three pools are surrounded by a sundeck that’s 20,000 generous square feet.

Evade the heat by renting a private cabana and stay hydrated with complimentary fruit, water, and towel service all day.

The kids will beg to ride the water slide on the hotel grounds. 

Crowds? You won’t see any, as the Wyndham Grand Rio Mar has a private two-mile beach that only guests can use.

Parents, you deserve a break too. Explore 13 tennis courts, visit the 7,000-square-foot Mandara Spa for some R&R, golf on an 18-hole course, or gamble big at the onsite casino. It’s open daily between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and features all your favorite games, like roulette, blackjack, video poker, and slots.

The range of dining options is designed for all tastes, including those young picky eaters. 

I recommend a sit-down breakfast at Marbella to begin your day on a tantalizing note. Roots Coastal Kitchen serves up pizzas the kids will surely love for lunch or dinner.

You can eat at the golf course restaurant, sample food at the swim-up bar, or request in-room dining when you’re just too wiped out to leave.

Mom and Dad, Palio serves up scrumptious Caribbean dishes in an upscale environment if you’re seeking a romantic dinner for two.

Every room in this resort is gorgeous, but I suggest the Ocean Family Suite. It offers a large bathroom, bunk beds, a sleeper sofa, and a king-sized bed. A separate living area carves out enough space and privacy.

Your stay includes fantastic amenities to make your vacation easier, including a 42-inch flat-screen television, a private balcony, premium cable, a mini fridge, a coffeemaker stocked with specialty local coffee, and a rollaway bed.  

2. Caribe Hilton Hotel

San Juan

A Puerto Rican staple since 1949, the Caribe Hilton Hotel is another marvelous all-inclusive resort for your exotic family getaway.

The resort is ginormous, measuring 17 acres in all, and has enough accommodations to make your family vacation one for the record books.

You’re merely steps away from one of the most gorgeous beaches you’ve ever seen so you can take a dip when your heart desires. 

Even better, the beach is secluded, limited only to those staying at the resort.

You’ll find family activities galore awaiting you, such as shaded hammocks for refuge from the sun, a fun playground, a bird sanctuary and tropical gardens, or a koi pond. 

Daily activities make it fun and effortless to plan your itinerary.

More adventurous families won’t want to miss oceanic opportunities through Aqua Adventures, such as paddle-boarding, sea trekking, scuba diving, or kayaking by night with LEDs to guide you.

You can also create once-in-a-lifetime memories by riding down El Yunque’s natural waterslides, boating the waters blue, or renting an ATV.

Feeling hungry? Of course, you are! Besides the in-room food menus, you can find familiar sights like Starbucks and restaurants galore.

The Ice Cream & Cookie Co. will become your kids’ new favorite in no time, as it serves smoothies, acai bowls, gourmet cookies, and ice cream.

You can try authentic Caribbean cuisine at plenty of architecturally impressive fine dining establishments.

Morton’s the Steakhouse serves more standard fare, including seafood and beef. Dine while overlooking the ocean.

Spacious hotels in the wings are one lodging option at the Caribe Hilton, and suites are available if you need more beds or privacy. 

Some suites offer two bedrooms and can sleep up to six with two oversized king beds. The largest suites are almost 2,000 square feet!

All rooms come with plush amenities. You can check in with your concierge anytime to plan your days, relax at the onsite spa, play some tennis, or swim in the outdoor pool. 

Meeting rooms, a fitness center, and digital key access are also provided.

3. Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve

Rio Grande

With beachside luxury steps away and the El Yunque rainforest lingering invitingly in the background, the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve is nestled in an excellent part of the Rio Grande.

Outdoor magic awaits you and your family throughout your stay as you explore paddle boarding, kayaking, or snorkeling. 

The outdoor pools offer reliable aquatic entertainment. The lagoon style and size mean there’s room for everybody. 

A swim-up bar for adults gives parents a reason to come back later.

Parents can play TopSwing or traditional golf, pickleball, or tennis. The 11,000-square-foot Rainforest Spa offers a hot tub, sauna, steam room, fitness center, and private pool for a relaxing day away.

When your belly begins rumbling, you’ll love the extensive selection of restaurants offered at the Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve.

Nori Teppanyaki and Nori Asian serve up authentic Japanese cuisine. Prime 787 is a steakhouse that also whips up mouthwatering seafood. 

The Martini Bar is just for adults, while the Water’s Edge is an appealing family eatery with breakfast and dinner buffets and Caribbean dishes.

TopGolf dining, in-room meals, and a wet bar will also quench your thirst and satiate your appetite.

Rooms, suites, and villas are available lodging options. 

The Regency Suite is 815 square feet of pure luxury. Guests can enjoy a king-sized bed, a hydro massage tub, a workspace, living and dining space, an outdoor dining spot, and a plunge pool just for you.

The villas are about 700 square feet apiece and include one to two large beds, a private balcony, a sleeper sofa, separate showers in the bathroom, and a kitchenette for preparing meals.

4. Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa

The elegance of Puerto Rico is encapsulated in the Copamarina Beach Resort & Spa. 

Situated amongst 20 acres of lush green gardens and overlooking a half-mile private beach, there’s always something exciting happening here.

You’re a mere two miles from Gilligan’s Island, a perfect spot for snorkeling. You’re also fewer than eight miles from the enchanting Guanica State Forest.

The family-friendly activities don’t stop, from dual outdoor pools to a volleyball court, outdoor playground for the kiddos, table tennis, and watersports aplenty.

Rent all the equipment you need for scuba diving, kayaking, snorkeling, or boating.

You can also plan a day of cruising the beach in a chartered boat. This is one of the best ways to experience the Caribbean Sea up close and personal. A sunset cruise creates a more romantic atmosphere.

Savor some of the best dining Puerto Rico has to offer at Copamarina restaurants.

The world-class food served at Restaurante Alexandra and Las Palmas Restaurant will have you falling in love with regional flavors.

Cost-effective deluxe and oceanfront rooms offer the finest in accommodations. Upgrade to a single-bedroom suite or a luxury villa. 

The villa has three bedrooms, a wraparound balcony to yourselves, a home theater system, a sofa bed, a living area, a chef’s kitchen with all the fixings, a dining area, and two bathrooms.

5. Parador Guanica 1929

Paradise awaits at Parador Guanica 1929 overlooking Guanica Bay. This idyllic resort is your own little slice of heaven you’ll be reluctant to leave.

The games area for children on the fresh green lawn of the resort always has something fun brewing. Your family can explore the Guanica Lighthouse ruins or Jungle Beach, which is only minutes from the hotel.

You’re also within reach of a sunflower farm, hiking trails, and Fort Capron, a spot where the ruins are breathtakingly beautiful.

After a day of adventuring, retreat to the hotel and relax poolside underneath a wicker umbrella while undulating palms rustle in the breeze.

The onsite restaurant is led by the hotel’s culinary team and offers an extensive variety of items. Many are seafood-centric, but you can also chow down on plenty of other eats, so don’t worry about what the kids will have.

You can add breakfast, breakfast and dinner, or all-inclusive dining to your room reservation for an additional fee. The rooms here are festive and accommodating but meant for smaller groups.
