Planning a holiday is a fun, exciting experience, right? Yes. Unless you’re planning that holiday for you, and multiple energetic children of varying ages. Then the experience is not so much fun and exciting as it is stressful, confusing, and often so exhausting that you call the whole thing off.
Don’t panic. It turns out there are many world class beach resorts around the globe that have taken the difficulties of holidaying with a family into consideration, and understand the concerns. Worried that there aren’t kid friendly spaces? Concerned that there isn’t childcare available? Confused as to which restaurants are child friendly?
Not to worry, at these resorts the answers are; yes to all of the above, plus the prices are included in your booking fees.
Coconut Bay Beach Resort And Spa
Located in Saint Lucia, the Coconut Bay Beach Resort is a dream come true, catering specifically to families that are looking for the ultimate holiday. A mile of white beach sands await, nestled in an 85 acre resort that is straight out of a dream. Want the largest water park on the island? You’ve got it. Free Wi-Fi for your sports betting NZ needs back home? You’ve got it, as well as nine onsite restaurants, seven bars serving top shelf liquor, and the CocoLand Kidz Club.
Not convinced? How about the fact that Coconut Bay Beach resort hands you one complimentary resort cell phone, and the other to your children, ensuring that you’re in touch 24 hours a day. Not that your kids will be calling too frequently, given that they’ll be distracted by a water playground, and mini-rock climbing wall.
Hotel Xcaret Mexico
Maybe waterparks are less your thing, and Mayan runes a bit more up your alley. Not to worry, you’re looking for the recently opened Hotel Xcaret Mexico, located in Cancun. The big drawing card is that staying in the resort allows free access to multiple nearby natural reserves, including the fabled Chichen Itza Mayan ruins. You can explore them at your leisure, with the kids, or they might instead prefer to get involved in the included activities at the kid’s clubs. The Xiiquillos Kids Club for ages twelve and under, or the Xiipaal Teens Club for thirteen and above.
Plus, after a long day exploring ancient ruins you can choose from one of ten onsite restaurants, and eight bars. Needless to say; upscale real Mexican cuisine is on offer.
Nekupe Sporting Resort and Retreat
Last we have the Nekupe luxury resort in Nicaragua. The word Nekupe translates to ‘heaven’ in local dialect, and it doesn’t take much to see why the name was chosen. Offering a view of the Mombacho Volcano, visitors have the option to enjoy private Jacuzzis, top of the range organic food, as well as free access to the child friendly on-site animal sanctuaries.
This one may be the priciest on the list, but you won’t be unsure of where the extra money went. Absolute luxury for the whole family.
