Looking to treat the family to a holiday abroad this year? Providing the perfect opportunity to escape your everyday stresses and spend some uninterrupted, fun-packed time together, a family holiday can be just what the doctor ordered. However, before you go ahead and book a holiday for you and the kids, there are a few things you’ll want to keep in mind.
As you’re no doubt well aware, travelling anywhere with the kids is a totally different experience to travelling without them! So, if you want to ensure your family holiday is as stress-free as possible, below you’ll discover how to find the best family friendly hotel.
Make sure you’re choosing a family-friendly resort
It may sound obvious, but if you want to get the most from your family getaway, you’ll want to make sure you’re booking a family-friendly resort. Not all resorts offer the same level of family features and amenities, so it’s worth looking around and comparing at least three different resorts in order to find the best one aimed at families.
Look out for nearby attractions as well as on-site facilities. The key is to find a resort which offers plenty of entertainment. That way, you won’t need to worry about the kids getting bored.
We particularly recommend checking out our collection of Splashworld resorts. These provide free entry into a top waterpark either directly on-site, or close to the resort. Take a look at our family-friendly resorts now to see which ones offer Splashworld benefits.
Consider staying in an apartment
While hotels can certainly be a convenient option, when you’re used to having a lot of personal space, they can be a little cramped. So, if you’re looking to enjoy more of a home-from-home experience, why not consider staying in an apartment.
Our range of apartments are spacious as well as stylish. Before booking, be sure to check the size of the apartment to ensure everyone will fit in comfortably. After all, the apartment you choose is going to be your base for the duration of the holiday, so you’re going to want to make sure you’re all comfortable.

If you want to make sure you have a good level of facilities within easy reach, we recommend booking into one of our great Holiday Villages. These typically feature a wide range of on-site activities, kids’ clubs and a good selection of evening entertainment to be enjoyed.
