If you're up to the challenge of taking your newborn on an island vacation, consider escaping to Runaway Bay, Jamaica with an all-inclusive family travel package.
The kid-friendly Franklyn D. Resort (www.fdrholidays.com) has a WeeBabyMoon offer that promises to save you more than 50% if you are traveling with a baby less than three months old. With this deal, Mom, kids, and newborn stay free at the all-inclusive resort.
How it Works: Dad pays the regular all-inclusive, per-person rate (regular rates start at $310 per night), and Mom stays free along with two non-infant kids and, of course, your new bundle of joy. The resort will even reimburse you the $85 it will cost to get your wee jetsetter's passport.
Other Perks: The homey, 78-suite resort (see our review) has accommodations that range from studios to two-bedroom suites. The resort also has four restaurants, two pools, a water slide, water sports, tennis, basketball, a kids' club and -- get this -- your own dedicated vacation nanny, who is on call for free childcare or just stocking your fridge during your entire visit. Your rates also include taxes and a free transfer to and from Montego Bay Airport. When we checked some early fall dates, we saw that kids ages 7 to 16 are usually charged $50 a night; kids under 6 always stay free.
One Catch: You have to stay at least seven nights. And, if this weren't obvious, you have to be traveling with a newborn. If getting up at all hours of the night with a little baby makes you cower, think of it this way: During the day, hello vacation nanny.
The Fine Print: This package is not available for the five days before or after a U.S. or Jamaican holiday. We didn't see clear links for booking the deal online, so your best bet is to call tel. 800/654-1337 and ask for the "WeeBabyMoon" offer.
