I know it is not recommended to go to an all inclusive resort if your child has severe nut allergies. My son has egg and nut allergies.
But I just want to hear from people who have taken their allergic children to all inclusive vacations down south and had a good time at it. Were any extra accommodations or steps taken for your child. I read that another lady had an amazing experience in beaches Jamaica. We're thinking of going on vacation down south when my son will be 2 1/2 and new baby will be about 9 months old. 9 month old will be on baby food and nursing mostly. It's the 2 1/2 year old with confirmed nut and egg allergies that worry us.
I'm sure there are others here aside form the one lady who have done it successfully.

Thanks.

we went to FDR, an all-inclusive with kitchen suites in Jamaica when my youngest daughter was 1 year old. It is a great place for pre-school age kids as they even include a vacation nanny for each family to take care of your kids and give the parents a break. There was a kitchen in our room, but we mostly used it for snacks. They were okay, but we found we got different answers from different people when we asked about ingredients. This is why we switched to villas.

if you want the relaxation of an all-inclusive with your own kitchen, why not try a villa with a cook. That way you can check the ingredients yourself (and go shopping with the cook) and you only have to explain the allergies to 1 person.

Check out http://www.mysilversands.com/content/home.aspx (moderately priced) or http://www.tryallvillasjamaica.com/site/ (expensive) for a couple of villa resorts in Jamaica.
