Supervised Children's Program:
For kids ages 5 to 12 at eight locations. Babysitting can be arranged at all locations.
Two years ago, Wyndham launched Family Retreat Programs so that rather than just take advantage of drop-off children's activities, parents and their kids can book joint options such as cooking classes, campfire stories, and even spa treatments. The selection varies by resort.
Another hotel program, Wyndham ByRequest, allows parents to register favorite activities, toys, and snacks, which will be waiting for families upon arrival. ByRequest tracks these preferences so that every time parents notify the resort that they're traveling with children, the extras will be in place.
