From Tots to Teens: Why Our Family Life Resorts Are the Best for Kids of Any Age
It’s the dilemma that every parent faces come holiday time: how do I choose a destination and keep everyone happy? Get the balance wrong and you face a tantrum from your smallest children, or a teenager’s strop.
Luckily that won’t happen if you book a holiday with our sister company, Thomson. Their Family Life resorts are perfect for children of all ages and make for splendid family holidays. But, what makes them so special?
There’s never a dull moment for children who visit Thomson Family Life resorts. The Bamse Club caters for 3 to 5 year olds, engaging them in activities such as treasure trails, while the @611 Club will suit children in the 6 to 11 age range, allowing them to transform into a young Doctor Who on a ‘Time Traveller Day’. Let the kids play hard as you cram in a spot of yoga or Pilates in the outdoor fitness area, or just chill out at the bar with a cocktail.
There are also evening clubs, which take place three times a week for older children and teenagers who feel the day is far too young to stay in and watch TV after dinner! They can also hang out in the free Wi-Fi area and update their Facebook and Twitter profiles on holiday.
Of course, it’s not only the kids who have fun. Mums and dads can get in on the act as well. The resorts’ hosts coordinate events and activities that the whole family can enjoy together. There is also evening entertainment like children’s discos and shows, plus live cabaret performances suitable for all of the family.
Welcoming the youngest generation
Family Life resorts are equipped with crèches for tiny tots and they are open six days a week. This is a facility you have to pay a little extra for, but the smiles the soft play areas bring to your children’s faces are priceless. Resorts also run parent and toddler sessions, enabling you to spend quality bonding time in your beautiful holiday location. The sessions comprise music, games and storytelling — all things that kids love.
These resorts are as practical as they are entertaining. You don’t have to pack every single baby item you own. You can book cots, sterilisers, strollers and other such essentials before you travel to the resort. The resort’s kind-hearted staff will have these ready for you when you arrive. During your stay you can retreat from the heat into the air-conditioned Baby Lounge and take care of duties like feeding the baby, changing nappies and all those other little essentials of parenting!
Extra reasons to stay at a Family Life Resort
All good resorts will have a pool, and Thomson Family Life ones are no exception. Equipped with pools for parents to have a swim in and pools for children to splash around in, families can cool down easily while outdoors at the resort. Afterwards, you can replenish your energy with a range of foods in the restaurants onsite, which provide children’s menus for any fussy young eaters.
With resorts in Salou, Bodrum and Zante, to name just a few exciting destinations, there’s some serious family fun to be had. Treat your family with a holiday to a Thomson Family Life resort – offering sun and fun, you simply can’t lose.
