My fam and I have been to all of the forementioned vacation spots and we all agree, hands-down, we had the best time in Phuket. Most things to do for the best prices, Thai-food, and the night life is unbeatable. Make sure you get a quality hotel with night time child care services, would recommend Millennium Resort.

Beware a major rip-off in Phuket: Jet ski rentals. After the rental, they'll claim you damaged the craft and want hundreds of dollars in recompense. The cops are in cahoots with the rental operators, so you won't get any help from them. Phuket can be a fun place, but be wary. There are many rip-offs.

If you are looking for something that is in a nice beach with things to do for your family and fits your budget you. should try boracay Philippines. The airfare wont be super cheap for sure probably around 1500 but the hotels and everything else are cheap there because a dollar can buy you a lot of stuff there already. Or you can also try Singapore. They got nice places but not very cheap though.

I don't know any other services, but for the longest time US Navy members were not allowed to go to Boracay (some exceptions). I agree it is a great location with very beautiful beaches, but last I checked it was off limits to USN members.

Any idea why? I know 2 Navy families who have been there in the last month & they came back raving about it.
