They’re called "water walkers." Your child crawls inside these clear, giant air-filled balls and then they can run, jump, flip and spin atop the water – while you laugh so hard your face will hurt!
This was just one of the many experiences that the Boca Beach Club offers families and guests.
If your kids love kite-flying, take them down to the beach to meet Randy Lowe, their Kite Concierge. He's a one-man kite festival, flying custom kites like a 60-foot, life-size whale, a scuba diver, enormous animals, super heroes and so many more. The sky is filled each Saturday and Sunday with these brightly colored, one-of-a-kind silk creations – and it's a fantastic sight.
The Boca Beach Club, part of the Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, is located right on the Atlantic, on a half-mile of beachfront property, just across from the Intercoastal Waterway. It is the quintessential beach resort, for couples or families.
We loved our spacious room with ocean views. The luxurious bathroom was a treat too, with duel sinks, a soaking tub and separate rainfall shower (loved that!). In all, they have 212 newly renovated rooms for you to choose from.
Rest and relaxation can be found at three outdoor pools; private poolside cabanas; four restaurants and the oceanfront bar. If you want to keep busy, there are plenty of activities from stargazing to shuttle service to local events (we took the shuttle to Mizner Park for the St. Patrick’s Day celebration).
Camp Boca is their onsite kids club for ages 3-12. Kids are divided into age groups and they have fun indoors and out. Half- and full-day programs are available. The Camp Boca playroom was bright and welcoming and filled with everything a kid could want from high-tech games to costumes. They also have a Random House Children’s Library.
I have to tell you, the pool deck and beach area were overflowing with energy. They have hair braiding, shaved ice (with alcoholic and non-alcoholic selections), live music, water walkers, kite flying, arts & crafts and the most amazing offering of food service on the sand at the Beach Shack. They do different menus all the time, too. The day we spent at the beach, they had a full salad bar with all the toppings! Amazing and totally unique.
My suggestion? While the kids are enjoying Camp Boca, take the free water shuttle to the main resort, the Boca Raton Resort & Club, and spend time at Spa Palooza. Try one their signature services like a Ritual Bath and have lunch by the private spa pool with two waterfalls, ideal for drowning out stress.
You will love this resort! So much to write about. One more quick note: To partake of all these amenties or to dine in the amazing restaurants, you have to be staying onsite as a guest. So make your reservation and go!
