That’s why we’ve done the research for you. We have put together a list of the 5 best hotels where children go for free:
Crete is an outstanding family holiday destination, with a full range of luxury hotels with various activities for children of all ages available. From village docks to active town squares, there is something for everyone on the lovely Greek island. Porto Elounda Golf and Spa Resort is our number one choice because it offers excellent family-oriented facilities and services. From a football academy, dance lessons, water-skiing, canoeing or windsurfing to a 9 hole golf course, there’s no way you can get bored! If you want to make your holiday that extra special, you have the option of hiring a yacht for the day!
For a stress-free break this summer on the Canary Islands we heartily advise the Princesa Yaiza Complex. Besides having excellent service and endless facilities, such as 5 swimming pools and 2 Jacuzzis, you are also situated just 20 minutes away from local eateries and shops. Rest assured your children will be well looked after and entertained at the children’s club, Kikoland, where they’ll have fun and engage in activities. The resort also offers a creche – Baby Kikoland, where accredited personnel take care of babies as young as 4 months old. All these while you unwind at the Thalasso Spa, take a walk on the promenade or play sports in the hotel’s multi-sport court.
The One&Only Royal Mirage Hotel in Dubai offers its guests a lavish experience and is the ideal holiday destination. A family-friendly hotel that is in contradiction to the skyscrapers we are used to seeing in Dubai. Made of 3 different properties, it spreads across 65 acres of gardens to reflect an Arabian Palace with a contemporary twist. There are many enjoyable activities for the children to do at their KidsOnly Club, from dances, riding animals to temporary tattoos or sculpting sand figurines.
