  • The Ultimate Guide for Peace-Seeking Parents Abroad

    You should look forward to your holiday and treasured time spent with your family. Naturally, you don’t want these days in the sun to be marred by arguments about activities, with the kids wanting to do one thing and the adults another. We’re here to help you avoid such clashes, with this ultimate guide to peace-seeking parents abroad. Here are a few suggestions for finding a good time that will be enjoyed by all, and it all starts with choosing the right holiday village or resort.

    Kids Clubs

    The first thing to do if you want a peaceful, enjoyable holiday is choose a destination that offers a Kids Club. Resorts and holiday villages run clubs for kids of different age groups, so you can squeeze in some well-deserved quality time with your partner during the day. While the kids are hard at play, you’ll be resting easy. If you just can’t bear to be away from them, however, you’ll be able to take part in some of the activities too.

    Some of the best Kids Clubs include those of the Holiday Village Seaview Ibiza, Holiday Village Rhodes and Holiday Village Costa del Sol. These run seven days a week, and the majority of the activities are free, leaving you with plenty of euros for day trips and souvenirs.

    Cool holiday village activities include WaterWalkerz (walking across water in giant inflatable balls) and raft-building. Then there’s the Aerial Adventure assault course, which is a big favourite with kids. Last but not least, children love the swim, stage and football academies.

    Nightly entertainments

    One of the best things about staying at a holiday village or resort is that the day isn’t over when the sun sets. You can relax with a blockbuster in the mini-cinema, or catch ‘HV Live’, a range of evening entertainments, including live outdoor performances, put on by the holiday village’s dedicated entertainments team. Alternatively, you can follow the big game at the sports bar, with a nice cold beer in hand of course.

    If you’re worried about keeping the kids occupied in the evenings, there’s no need to fear. There are Kids Clubs that run into the evening, so there are no arguments about the way the family should spend time, even as the day draws to a close. You can go your way, and they can go theirs (for a couple of hours, at least). Everybody’s happy!

    Making friends

    Travel introduces you to all kinds of fun and interesting people from different countries, so encourage your kids to make friends at the resort while they’re on holiday. In fact, they might even make pals without any persuasion at all.

    They’ll love having someone new to share adventures and pictures with, whether they stay in touch by phone, email or Facebook. And they might just become the envy of their classmates if they make friends with someone other side of the globe, or at least the other end of the country.

    Media and staying connected

    Fancy a quiet night in one evening? Many rooms at holiday villages and resorts come equipped with DVD players, allowing you to bring some entertainment from home and have a family movie night.

    As you know only too well, kids also love to check everything that’s happening on social media, or just update their friends about their holiday. This won’t be a problem, because our rooms have Wi-Fi, saving you all trips to various Internet cafes!

    If you’re planning a family trip, you should definitely consider staying in a holiday village with us. Choose one of our locations, and it will be fun all the way.
