TOPX: 11 Steal-or-Splurge Family Villas
#1 (A Splurge) Round Hill Hotel and Villas, Montego Bay, Jamaica (pictured above). This balmy paradise with 27 individually owned villas serves up privacy, comfort, five-star service, and a touch of glamour in a convivial club-like atmosphere. The experience: The kids are happily ensconced at the high-energy Kids' Club, and the two of you are strolling hand-in-hand down to the waterfront terrace for cocktails and grown-up conversation followed by ocean-side spa treatments, golf, or maybe some deep-sea fishing. Member-only perk: Two 50-minute Tranquility massages (with minimum 4-night stay).
#2 (A Steal) Hotel Punta Islita, Costa Rica. Perched on a hilltop with a stunning view of the Pacific, this haven of relaxed luxury has a collection of well-appointed casitas and offers pleasing portions of serenity, relaxation, and adrenalin-filled excitement. The experience: You had dreamed of retreating to your private hammock to read the latest thriller, but you've been tempted (yet again!) to join the rest of the family for their latest adventure--will it be surfing, a kayaking eco-safari, a treetop canopy excursion, or horseback riding on the beach? Whatever it is, you're up for the challenge! Member-only perk: One private golf lesson for two and a 25-minute Reflexology massage for two at Casa Spa.
#3 (A Splurge) The Resort at Paws Up, Montana. Set on 37,000 acres, this resort offers 28 private ranch homes plus a cluster of roomy and luxurious tents that have all the creature comforts needed to make you forget you're practically roughing it. The experience: You've never seen the kids this excited before--they were all smiles as they planned the week's events (river rafting, horseback riding, and fishing, to name a few), but they're downright giddy now as they assist your camping butler in lighting a campfire to make s'mores; the two of you are pretty giddy, too, as you enjoy a glass of champagne under the lightshow that is the amazing Montana night sky. Member-only perk: A $150 one-time resort activity credit.
