For those who are looking to holiday with their children one important thing to consider is how you are going to entertain them during those long sunny days and warm nights.
But fear not travelling parents, there are plenty of family friendly resorts dotted around the world, each one bringing a whole host of benefits for those who are booking their family holidays.
Where are these holiday havens? Little Travellers have compiled a list of some of the best family friendly resorts from around the world for you to choose from.
The first one on our list is the several Club Med resorts that are dotted throughout the world. These luxurious hotels are ideal for that family holiday (although do remember that some of them are an exclusive adult only hotel too). One of our favourites is the Palmiye resort in Turkey; as well as being an idyllic place to get away, this hotel has kids clubs designed for a wide variety of ages. There are separate areas for both teens and younger children and the operating hours recognise children’s patterns as well as their parents needs. Also available at this hotel is a Teenagers spa, with treatments specifically designed with your little adult in mind.
Staying in Turkey we move to Lykia World, Dalaman. This hotel has so much for children to do during their stay that you will never have to worry about hearing that dreaded “I’m bored” phrase uttered from their little mouths. Some key activities from this hotel include 19 swimming pools, 19 tennis courts, 14 bars and something that they call the Children’s Paradise complex. Inside this complex are 8 dedicated children’s pools with 20 water slides, a beach, arts and craft activities volleyball, trampoline and even a children’s restaurant. Everything you could possibly imagine in one place.
Moving now to The Insotel Club Punta Prima, Menorca. The first plus point for this beautiful hotel is the size and facilities included in the family apartments. They make the ideal base for your family holidays, with everything you need in one apartment. If you are looking for ways to entertain the kids whilst out of your room then this hotel has a 4 different age range clubs, where they will be delighted to find recreation rooms, playgrounds, arts and sports activities and even such delights as a pizza party. Everything here is run by professionals and is always of the highest standards.
Looking further afield and you have Maritim in Mauritius. Here you will have all the luxury and beauty that is associated with a holiday in Mauritius but you get to enjoy it with your own little travellers. As well as their excellent children’s entertainment and activities there are the added benefits of family friendly things to do including mini golf, horse riding, diving and a whole host of watersports. Of course you might just decide to spend some time enjoying the beautiful sands, but be safe in the knowledge that if you holiday here you will never run out of things to do.
As well as these fine examples there are some other hotels that are definitely within the top level of family friendly resort. These include; Sensatori in Crete, The Pollentia Club Mallorca, Sheraton Pinetrees in the Algarve and finally Forte Village, Sardinia.
With so many fantastic choices you are certain to find the right holiday for you and your family. Just remember to pack your inner child, with activities this good you are going to need it!
