PENNINGTON, N.J., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- After a long winter, families are gearing up for warm summer escapes, and interest in all-inclusive resorts remains strong in 2014.
"All-inclusive resorts are incredibly popular with families, but they're not all created equal," says Lissa Poirot, editor of Family Vacation Critic. "Families traveling with kids tend to spend a majority of their time on-property, so it's important for parents to find resorts that don't just accept children, but that truly welcome them. Resorts that we classify as being especially family-friendly are those with spacious accommodations, extensive kids' programming and available childcare services."
