What makes a great family hotel? Great pools, good family entertainment and kids’ clubs – not to mention sunshine and blue sky.
We take family fun very seriously...
“A great family resort is where the children are happy and entertained so the parents can relax,” says Flight Centre consultant Ruth Ringwood.
“Family holidays are great for spending time together, but to make sure things go smoothly I always check there’s a good selection of food suitable for children, and a separate sleeping area. A couple of years ago I did a family trip to California, and it was just fantastic, with lots of activities from zip-lining to panning for gold and bear spotting. Kids love to be active!
"In Rhodes a few years ago we went on a boat excursion from our resort. When we anchored at lunch the kids were jumping off the boat with no fear. It’s brilliant exploring new places and seeing the kids grow and develop. With the exchange rate how it is, I recommend all-inclusive hotels, so you don’t have to budget for anything extra. Mark Warner hotels are reliably good, as they have brilliant kids’ clubs, which gives the adults time to themselves.
