All meals catered for, family-friendly rooms, daily children’s programs (some also offer childcare or babysitting services) and you don’t even need to think about the holiday itinerary. Everything you need to have a break where you don’t need to worry about what to cook or how to entertain the little ones.

The beach


Imagine a place where your children can run free, splash about in the water to their hearts’ content and ultimately, tire themselves out utterly by the end of the day—so long as you don’t mind them bringing sand in to virtually everywhere. That’s one thing you can never get rid off. We mean sand, not your children.

Visit family


Home is where the heart is, and the heart is where family is. Near or far, country or city, getting together with family—especially those you don’t see often—is often a fantastic way to have fun. The grandparents would be delighted to see the grandchildren, the kids would be thrilled to hang out with their cousins and the adults can take turns minding the children. Bonus: free accommodation!
