My family and I visited The Fern Resort for our family vacation this year, and fell in LOVE!
Whether your the quiet type who enjoys reading poolside and pampering at a spa, or the outdoorsy type who love excitement and entertainment, The Fern Resort is perfect for everyone in your family.
We arrived on Friday afternoon, checked in, unpacked and looked around the resort grounds then joined the other Fern Guests in the Dining Room for Dinner. The Children's dinner starts at 5:30pm and featured great choices for every little picky eater.
On your first night in the dining room, you are showed to your table.
This table will be your table throughout your entire stay.
It it set up for you and your family, and is ready with menus when you arrive. Their menu offers a variety of dishes including vegan, and gluten free options.
The fine dining menu started at 6:00pm, the same time The Fern's Play Village reopens for the evening. We walked our son over and he had a great time burning off some energy with the other children and staff while we enjoyed a romantic dinner with our 10 week old daughter sleeping next to us in her stroller. That night we enjoyed the Magic of Richard Forget and retired to our room.
The Fern Nursery and Play Village accommodates children ages 2 weeks to 6 years of age.
On Sat morning, we ate a lovely breakfast together in the dining and headed for the Play Village. Our son AJ was super excited to go and the staff all welcomed him back.
This time, we left our little lady Celeste in the nursery and went on a romantic trail walk, something we haven't done in 4 years, since our son was born. I was nervous, any mom would be leaving a 10 week old with someone other then a close family member, but it was great! They had 2 staff members looking after her, in the fully stocked nursery. Cribs, cots, toys, a swing, everything you need to keep your little ones happy and safe.
My son enjoyed the bouncy castle, the play structure and playing in the sand. He made a super hero mask and played in the water feature too.
We picked up our son AJ around 10:30 for some swimming in the outdoor pools. The Fern features three pools, a kiddy pool, a diving pool, and the large pool with a slide. There is also an indoor pool, plus 2 hot tubs overlooking the water. The lifeguards were on duty and they had fun pool noodles to play with.
Lunch was served and we enjoyed a few more outdoor activities together, Pedal Bikes and Paddle Boats.
Another fabulous dinner followed by Candy Bingo and Hypnotist Richard Cole.
On Sunday morning, we enjoyed the view from our suite, the pool once again, and hit the trampolines, zip line and mini golf.
We had such a fantastic time, we are already planning another family trip next year to try water skiing, water painting, archery and scuba lessons.
Plus I am thinking of organizing a mom and child/ren getaway as well.
Maybe even our wedding!
Thank you for an awesome weekend!
