Parents may think that it's "paradise found" at the deluxe all-inclusive Renaissance Jamaica Grande Resort, next to the colorful port city of Ocho Rios. With a staff that is eager to assist and an all-inclusive program that provides everything from delicious food to a multitude of recreational options, parents soon realize that a vacation here permits them to leave their wallets and their worries behind.

Parents and children alike relish the distinctive "Club Mongoose" children's program at the Renaissance Jamaica Grande Resort. Named after the timid Jamaican mammal often seen darting across the countryside, "Club Mongoose" allows parents some much needed free time, while their children make new friends and explore a different culture.

A complimentary service of the resort's all-inclusive plan, the "Club Mongoose" children's center offers activities for children from two to twelve years old. Two- to four-year olds enjoy puppet making, finger painting and building sandcastles, among other activities. Five- to eight-year olds can create recyclable art, engage in a hermit crab hunt, and meet Jamaican children while visiting a local school. For kids aged nine to twelve, computer stations with e-mail access, Reggae dance classes and interpretive adventures through Jamaican history are sure to please.

The facilities at "Club Mongoose" have been designed to stimulate creativity among children vacationing at the resort. The secure playground overlooks the blue Caribbean and features a genuine bamboo houseboat in addition to traditional playground equipment. The program's outdoor offerings also include a swimming pool, water squirter, large theatrical stage, as well as a soft serve ice cream and juice bar.

Situated on the island's northern coastline, the 720-room Renaissance Jamaica Grande Resort features three outdoor swimming pools, a cascading replica of world-renowned Dunn's River Falls, two Jacuzzis, five restaurants with fare ranging from traditional Jamaican "jerk" specialties to Northern Italian cuisine, eight bars, the immensely popular Jamaic'N Me Crazy Discotheque, the Club Mongoose children's program and a 1,300 foot-long white sand beach. Windsurfing, water-skiing, snorkeling, parasailing, tennis and dive programs are just some of the activities available along the resort's magnificent beachfront. Other resort features include a game room with slot machines, duty-free shops, four championship tennis courts lit for night play and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Golf, horseback riding, polo and river rafting can also be enjoyed nearby. Food & beverage, entertainment, non-motorized water sport equipment, taxes & gratuities are contained in the resort's all-inclusive packaging, as well as the "Club Mongoose" children's program, health club facility, and room service.

"Club Mongoose" is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 9 p.m., and is complimentary for guests staying on the resort's all-inclusive plan. Along with daily activities, lunch and dinner are included, with choices from spaghetti and meatballs to burgers or pizza.
