Vacation Express Adds Affordable Family-Friendly Hotels

Atlanta, GA, April 12, 2012

Just in time for summer vacation Vacation Express has added a number of affordable hotels to their already extensive collection of family-friendly resorts. The new product additions include hotels in Mexico, Punta Cana, Jamaica and St. Thomas, and all offer excellent facilities and amenities specially designed for families. Most feature a budget-friendly all-inclusive plan including plenty of activities, entertainment and dining options for every member of the family. Parents and children alike will enjoy age-specific supervised Kids Clubs and play areas, and some feature spacious family rooms which can accommodate up to three children in the room with their parents. A great way to stretch the family vacation budget, most offer Kids ‘Stay, Play & Eat Free’ promotions.

In Mexico, families will find the Viva Wyndham Azteca and its sister hotel, Viva Wyndham Maya, located beachfront on the Riviera Maya, excellent choices with special Family Rooms comprised of two connecting rooms. The Oasis Palm, in Cancun, features a brand new state-of-the-art Seven Seas Pool & Entertainment Center.

In Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, the Grand Paradise Bavaro and the Caribe Club Princess both offer spectacular facilities for families. The Riu Naiboa, with access to all the amazing facilities at the expansive Riu complex located on one of the world’s most gorgeous beaches, offers a superb family vacation option - a family of four can stay for four nights for as little as $518.

In Jamaica, Braco Beach Resort, formerly Breezes Rio Bueno, resembles an old-fashioned Jamaican village, providing families with a tropical haven in the Trelawny area with spacious rooms - the perfect family getaway. For an incredible bargain, the value-priced Rooms on the Beach Ocho Rios (Continental Breakfast Plan only), offers family rooms with three double beds, accommodating up to 6 persons. Rooms Ocho Rios is located within walking distance of duty free shops, restaurants, boutiques, gift shops, food stores and the craft market.

Tucked in a cove on a beautiful bay, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort in St. Thomas, USVI (where passports are not required for U.S. citizens) is a super active, laid-back, family-friendly resort with just 62 true beachfront rooms and plenty of included land and water activities. An optional, no-hassle all-inclusive plan is available.

If you are near a Sunwing Airlines departure city (Atlanta, Cincinnati or Nashville) book an air/land inclusive package to Cancun, Punta Cana or Jamaica for the best deal, including flights on award-winning Sunwing Airlines. For example, a one-week trip to the Grand Paradise Bavaro in Punta Cana is available for only $699 per adult including air from Atlanta and all taxes (up to two kids stay free and pay only for air).

“Keeping everybody happy on vacation while staying on a budget can be tricky, especially if you're taking the whole family away,” stated Rene Jongmans, President of Vacation Express. “Choosing one of our affordably priced all-inclusive resorts makes the planning easy and won’t wreck the wallet. These recently added hotels make family travel fun and totally worry free.”
