No matter your criteria for an ideal beach
vacation, it's a good bet the Boca Beach Club fits the
bill. After all, the Beach Club is part of the Waldorf Astoria
family and from the beautifully decorated guest rooms to the
excellent dining options, it practically oozes luxury. Plus, the
attentive service makes you feel like royalty.
The resort features three different pools, two
specifically for families. Those looking for a home-base during
pool time can rent a private cabana, which comes complete with a
bathroom, shower and TV area, and is ideal if you have little ones
who need to nap.
If you're looking for the stereotypical beach scene,
you'll find it here. The private half-mile stretch of sand
overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, where you can try various water
sports. On holiday weekends, a professional sculptor from Travel
Channel's Sand Masters gives demonstrations, and kids can try
castle-building at the Kids Beach Oasis.
To take advantage of those beach breezes, the Beach Club
has a "kite concierge" who fills the sky with a range of shapes and
colors each weekend. Bike riders can rent bright green bikes to
explore the area. And kids will enjoy "walking on water" in the
Cabana Pool, listening to a free story hour through a partnership
with Random House, and trying out the shaved ice cart.
Mom and dad need some time to try the spa or golf course,
so there's Camp Boca, a supervised program for kids 3-12, taking
them on fun adventures. And since it's bound to rain at some point,
the camp offers a kid-friendly space with arts and crafts and a
Guests also can enjoy amenities at The Beach Club's sister
resort, the Boca Raton Resort & Club, which is accessible by
ferry and shuttle bus. If you have older kids, just give them the
room card, and they can enjoy a frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity
without needing cash or adult supervision.
