"We Go All Out for Families"

The Caribbean (/ˌkærᵻˈbiːən / or / kərɪbiən Spanish : Caribe ; Dutch: Caraïben) ; French: Caraïbe or more commonly Antilles) is a region that consists of the Caribbean Sea, its islands (some surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and some bordering both the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean), and the surrounding coasts. The region is southeast of the Gulf of Mexico and the North American mainland, east of Central America, and north of South America..

Situated largely on the Caribbean Plate, the region comprises more than 700 islands, islets, reefs, and cays. (See the list.) These islands generally form island arcs that delineate the eastern and northern edges of the Caribbean Sea. The Caribbean islands, consisting of the Greater Antilles on the north and the Lesser Antilles on the south and east (including the Leeward Antilles), are part of the somewhat larger West Indies grouping, which also includes the Lucayan Archipelago (comprising The Bahamas and Turks and Caicos Islands) north of the Greater Antilles and Caribbean Sea.

All Soft Drinks Included

Refresh yourself with great savings. We’ve created an array of great-value drinks packages to offer you the choice of refreshment that most appeals to you. Just imagine, unlimited consumption of non-alcoholic drinks, including a wide range of frozen drinks, sodas, fruit juices and classic hot beverages (coffee espresso, cappuccino) as well as takeaway ice cream.

Bahamian Fruit Punch :-  This refreshing drink is a staple at nearly every social event in the Bahamas and there are as many varieties as there are events. However, there are a few ingredients that must be included in order for it to be considered a “bonafide” , “true-true” Bahamian Fruit Punch!

Here is a popular Bahamian Fruit Punch Recipe (leaded)

½ oz. Concentrated Orange Juice • 2 oz. Pineapple Juice • ½ oz. Egg White • 1 oz. Lemon Mix • 1 Dash Angostura Bitters • ½ oz. Bols Grenadine •

Shake well with crushed ice, serve in 12 oz. Collins Glass . Garnish with orange slice and cherry.  Like we say in the Bahamas” I tell ya dat!!!”

Anytime Snacks

Hamburgers! The cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.  Self-service of hot snacks (hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, French fries, pizza…) and your favorite chips.   The first and most obvious answer to the question of why we're so obsessed with burgers is: burgers are cheap.  

Secondly, we're familiar to the taste.  Specifically the char that appears on the exterior of the meat after it hits the hot flame; that specific smell and taste conjures up memories of backyard barbecues and birthday parties from our childhoods. It's comforting.

Also, burgers are easy to eat. Because the meat is ground up, you don't have to do much chewing. Because it's served on a bun, it's easy to eat. There's no cutting, only lifting. And because burgers come with an array of sides, you can build yours to your own taste. That's appealing too.

All in all, burgers are popular because they're good. They do the job of feeding us when we want to be fed. And for that, we're grateful to the burger.

Diving

Plunge Into Scuba Diving

If the Caribbean is known for its carefree playful energy, then Grand Bahama is surely guilty of providing such pleasures. From legendary blue holes to drop-offs, wrecks and caves, explore some of the most spectacular dive sites in the world.  Here are some  Benefits of Scuba Diving:

  • Physical fitness:Swimming is one of the best modes of aerobic and anaerobic work we can do.
  • Flexibility and strength: Like swimming, which builds up the muscles in your thighs and shoulders, diving can help tone your different muscle areas, consequently giving you better posture.
  • Breathing: Deep, steady breathing promotes a calm attitude and reduces the risk of a lung-expansion injury.
  • Stress reliever:A relaxed, calm state of mind has been proven to promote a positive attitude and prevent depression.
  • Travel to warm climates:Dive travel abroad also means you are likely to meet fun people from all over the world with whom you have a common interest.

Pool Canal View

It's All About The Views

When it comes to going on holiday with a large group of friends or a big family, things can start to get expensive. With all the extra room costs, it can often put a lot of people off going on holiday with a big group of people.

Thankfully, each of our Playground’s rooms, suites, villas or town-homes will either offer stunning vistas of the pristine white sands with direct ocean views and a leisurely stroll to the majestic beaches, while others will be situated canal-front with magnificent gardens.

At Funntripps, our town-homes & villas come in all shapes and sizes, and many can sleep six people or more and aren’t as expensive as you’d first think. When you’re splitting the cost of the property between the number of people in the group, the whole property becomes a lot more affordable. As such, renting a villa is a much better option for family and group holidays than booking a hotel.

Contemporary Luxury
Modern Amenity

Designed to appeal to the most discerning  travelers, all Playgrounds will feature a Funntripps Sleep Experience complete with solid Mahogany bed, plush mattress, dreamy pillow menu and fine Egyptian cotton linens.

Other touches of modernity include flat-screen TVs, iPod docking station, lavish bathrooms, Jacuzzi, separate showers, as well as services such as complimentary WiFi and free phone  calls to the U.S. and Canada*.
