Spend this spring break soaking up the sun at the Holiday Inn Resort Jekyll Island, where the memories will last long after the tan fades. As one of Georgia’s Golden Isles, Jekyll Island will take you back to simpler days of uncrowded beaches and quality family time. Holiday Inn Resort offers unmatched views of the Atlantic Ocean and more than a quarter-mile of private beachfront. With plenty of on-site amenities, from a high-energy swimming pool, whirlpool and kiddy pool, to an outdoor fire pit, Kid’s Club and playground, guests can enjoy a stress-free vacation without having to leave the comfort of the property.
Families who plan ahead and book their stay more than two weeks in advance will save up to 20 percent on room rates at the resort. The 157-room beachfront hotel provides 21 suites, which are perfect for families. The Kid’s Suite, a guest favorite, includes bunk beds for the little ones and a separate bedroom for parents, as well as a kitchenette with a mini-fridge. The majority of the rooms have ocean views and all the suites include private balconies with views of the Atlantic Ocean. Holiday Inn Resort also has a select number of pet-friendly accommodations available for the furriest of guests.
Holiday Inn Resort offers family-friendly activities throughout the day and the evening. For Spring Break, the on-site activities manager plans beachfront activities such as water gun fights, selfie scavenger hunts, and arts and crafts. During Easter weekend, the resort will hold an Easter egg hunt, Easter bunny Olympics-style games, and a “find the Easter Bunny scavenger hunt.” In the evening, families can relax around the outdoor fire pit and enjoy nightly entertainment, including live music and outdoor movies.
When hunger can’t wait, visit the resort’s two onsite restaurants: Northshore and The Anchor. Northshore serves Caribou Coffee and frozen drink creations, like virgin daiquiris for the kids and martinis for the parents. The Anchor serves traditional American favorites for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With its poolside location, kids can eat without skipping out on playtime in the sun. Plus, kids 12 and under eat free at The Anchor.
In addition to many activities planned on-site for spring break and Easter weekend, the resort also offers bike rentals for exploring the island’s 25 miles of contiguous bike trails. The Beach Village, just two miles from the resort, offers an array of beach shops and restaurants. Additional activities for island goers include the 4-H Tidelands Nature Center, Jekyll Island Museum, miniature golf, an 11-acre water park and miniature golf.
