Guest Since 2011
I was lucky enough to visit Paradise Point two times this year, one of them being the first time I ever stayed there! My husband and his 7 brothers and sisters, mom, and dad stayed there every summer as a kid in a bayside room. He grew up playing on the sand and having bonfires when it got dark. He loved riding bikes all over the resort, and swimming in the main pool. I was never taken to Paradise Point, or vacation village which he mostly knew it as!
My father in law passed away a few years ago and ever since then my mother-in-law and sister-in-law have still continued to go once every summer. Last summer, one of my sister-in-laws decided she was going to go down and stay there with her 4-year-old son while my mother-in-law stayed there as well! I convinced my husband that we should come down and stay with our family of four too, and pretty soon it turned out to be a big Ciccoianni family event where 6 out 8 siblings were going! We even had extended family from Arizona going.
We only stayed 2 nights and 3 days but we had so much fun! We rented a surrey and rode bikes all around the resort. We had a bonfire every night and played Chubby Bunny seeing how many marshmallows we could shove in our mouth. We all went to all the pools and the kids built sandcastles with grandma. One of my favorite activities was when we rented the jet ski. My 65-year-old mother-in-law had it on her bucket list to ride one. She decided no time like the present, and got one and went off!
My mother-in-law talks about this vacation just about every time we see her, about how awesome it was to see her children with their own children on the bay. We intend to make it a family tradition and go back every year.
