BEACHES RESORTS OFFERS SINGLE PARENTS EXCLUSIVE SAVINGS DURING SINGLE PARENT FUN MONTHS IN 2012

Beaches Resorts Waives Single Supplement Fee and Offers Special Programs for Single Parent Families

MIAMI – Beaches Resorts recently announced the return of the popular Single Parent Fun (SPF) Months at all four resorts in Turks & Caicos and Jamaica. This program, exclusive to Beaches Resorts, makes it easier for single parents to plan a trip with their children that combines fun for all ages with a relaxing vacation experience for mom or dad.  In addition to waiving single-supplement fees, Beaches Resorts will be hosting a variety of “sunsational” events for these families.

“We understand that being a single parent can be challenging at times, and we believe these hard-working mothers and fathers deserve top-rated family vacations,” said Adam Stewart CEO of Sandals Resorts International. “With our Single Parent Fun Months, we hope to create a more affordable and extremely memorable vacation for these families.”

SPF months will be offered at all four Beaches Resorts including: Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages & Spa in Providenciales, Turks & Caicos; Beaches Boscobel Resort & Golf Club in Ocho Rios, Jamaica; Beaches Negril Resort & Spa in Negril, Jamaica; and Beaches Sandy Bay Resort in Negril, Jamaica. Single parent families who book a minimum three-night stay at any of these Beaches Resorts from now through October 25, 2012 will be treated to a variety of special events and a waived single supplement fee of up to $220.  Travel must occur May 1 through May 24, 2012, or September 4 through October 31, 2012 in order to take advantage of this promotion.   

Families have a variety of fun and engaging events to look forward to during the special SPF months, such as an invitation to participate as special guests in the ever–popular weekly Beaches Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street® Parades, where they will receive noise-makers, decorations and party favors. Additionally, parents can bond with their children and meet other single parent families while playing all the latest Kinect™ games during Kinect™ for Xbox 360® Family Game Night, or painting their own musical designs directly onto complimentary souvenir records during the Spin Art Sessions at the Scratch DJ® Academy.  When night sets in, families can dip their feet in the resort’s freshwater pool while snacking on popcorn and watching a family-favorite movie on an inflatable floating screen at Dive-In Movie nights. Other exciting activities include Family Beach Bonfires, complete with roasted marshmallows, and Beach Olympics, with special games and challenges on the resort’s pristine white-sand beaches. Families visiting Beaches Resorts beginning in September will also have an extra-special treat with the launch of Beaches Resorts’ brand new stage show featuring Super Grover!

These exciting offerings are available in addition to the always spectacular adventures and services awaiting guests at Beaches Resorts including: the everyday fun of the Beaches Caribbean Adventure with Sesame Street®, featuring everyone’s favorite furry friends Elmo, Grover, Cookie Monster, Zoe, Bert & Ernie, Abby Cadabby, The Count, Big Bird and now, Super Grover; Pirate’s Island Waterparks; supervised Kids Camps; Xbox 360® Game Garages; Scratch DJ® Academies; and much more.
