Vacations can often be about doing nothing – but that wasn't the case for Busy Philipps, her hubby Marc Silverstein and their daughter Birdie.
The family recently got cozy – but active – at the Viceroy Anguilla, where they stayed in a four-bedroom oceanfront villa overlooking picturesque Barnes Bay.
"Birdie hung out at the hotel's kids club," a source tells PEOPLE. "She got her hair braided and seemed to be having fun playing with other children."
As the couple's little one found her own source of entertainment, Philipps and Silverstein snuck away for some alone time, with what the source calls a "romantic dinner" at the hotel's Sunset Lounge.
The following day, Silverstein was spotted playing basketball with some of the resort's guests, but he and his wife also made time for spa treatments and a dip in the adults-only pool.

West Hollywood's Chateau Marmont is a bustling venue, but when Lady Gaga arrived for drinks on Tuesday night, the entire restaurant fell silent.
"While walking back from the bathroom, Gaga stopped in her tracks when she heard a small group of people singing her song 'Edge of Glory,' " an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The singing was very loud and made all the guests stop their conversation."
Looking into it further, Gaga and her three male companions, who looked like bodyguards, realized the voices were coming from a large group of fans camped out on the other side of the hotspot's wall of hedges.
"Gaga tried to speak to the fans through the wall but the singing was too loud so she had the hedges pulled apart as she stuck her head through the wall," the source says. "She said, 'Guys, it's Gaga,' before the crowd exploded with cheers."
Chatting with the fans for a few minutes while sticking her head through the bush, the insider explains, "Gaga told them she loved them and appreciated the support, but to please stop singing so the other people inside could eat in peace."
As the fans apparently happily obliged, Gaga – dressed in "an amazingly insane black outfit" – joined a girlfriend at the bar to chat while sipping on a glass of wine.

With a house full of children, and another one on the way, it makes sense that Tori Spelling's hubby Dean McDermott knows a thing or two about cooking up a kids' meal.
The reality star put his chef skills to the test on Tuesday night when he cooked up a fancy child-friendly feast – but for none other than a group of about 15 adults – at the Andaz West Hollywood hotel. To celebrate the launch of his lifestyle concept website TheGourmetDad.com, the proud papa worked up a five-course meal of his favorite recipes that appeal to adults, but also appear fun to eat for kids and contain proper nutrients.
"One of the meals was a piece of salmon that was made to look like a surfboard," an attendee at the dinner tells PEOPLE. "And there were blue mashed potatoes that were made to look like the ocean. It was really fun-themed."
Of the cooking duties, which were shared with the hotel's chef Jorge Chicas, the source says, "Dean worked away at it the entire dinner. He was decked out in full chef attire and seemed really into explaining the dishes and making sure the guests enjoyed his food."
At the end of the night, says the source, "Dean made these mini-Rice Crispy treats and talked about how they were a big hit at his daughter Stella's birthday party."

While Liam Hemsworth was busy filming in New Orleans over the weekend, his fiancée Miley Cyrus made time to hit up her favorite Hollywood hotspot.
Popping into Beacher's Madhouse inside the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel at around 11:45 p.m., the "Can't Be Tamed" singer was joined by a group of girlfriends – and they immediately headed to Cyrus's usual table in the front row of the club.
"Miley spent most of the night dancing," an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that she shimmied to songs by Pitbull and Michael Jackson.
But it wasn't until Rihanna came on that Cyrus really seemed to be having a ball on the dance floor.
"She threw her hands in the air when the deejay started playing, 'We Found Love,' " the source says. "She was very chatty and was in a great mood. At around 12:15 a.m., she pulled her girlfriend into the photo booth to take pictures together."
Also on hand that evening was Alexander Skarsgard.
The True Blood hunk was "approached by a handful of girls," says the source, but "[seemed to enjoy] his evening mostly under the radar."

The L.A. Kings were in party mode on Wednesday night to celebrate this week's big Stanley Cup win.
Surrounded by some of their celebrity fans, several members of the team walked into Beacher's Madhouse at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, holding their hard-earned trophies – and allowing fellow partygoers to pour alcohol in them and take shots!
At one point, "[the venue's owner] Jeff Beacher brought a cake replica of the Stanley Cup on stage and congratulated the team," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The emcee also congratulated the team all evening and they were all partying very hard to celebrate their win."
Among the folks excited to honor the local team's big win was Chace Crawford, who seemed like "a very excited fan like the rest of the club," the source says of the actor who kept a relatively low profile. "He had a small group of friends with him [who contributed to the] amazingly cool vibe that filled the club tonight."
Also on hand was David Beckham, who arrived at 12:30 a.m. with a group of guys and looked "very swanky in a suit," according to the insider, who adds, "He sipped on a bottle of beer and was in very high spirits. He had a few people approach him and he was very gracious."
Former Entourage star Kevin Connolly also came out for the momentous occasion.
Sipping on cocktails at a table in the back of the club, "There was a girl that was trying to be all over him," the source says. "It was obvious that he was trying to be nice, but also trying to get away from her."
