If GAYOT's list of Top 10 Family Resorts Worldwide had a tagline, it would be "Families that Play Together, Stay Together."

From Caribbean beaches to the heart of New York City, each choice provides a one-of-a-kind experience, as well as unique activities for children, such as underwater photography excursions and flying trapeze lessons. As for mom and dad, supervised programs mean there's no need to sacrifice alone time. While the kids make kites, take tennis lessons or learn a new language, adults can slip away for a spa treatment, round of golf or leisurely candlelit meal.
