Where to go
I love getting the whole family together, and after a long school term it’s time to treat the kids to something a bit special. This is also a great month for exploring – whether it’s an exotic location or a theme park, there are some real treats available.
What better way to indulge your kids after some hard months at school.
In April it’s easy to find a temperature to fit every temperament. Sun worshippers can head to the Middle East for some scorching desert heat, while those who prefer things a little milder can bask in the gently warming sun of the Mediterranean.
This is also a great month to get active with the kids. Though temperatures are starting to climb across the Med, Cyprusis still cool enough for sporting holidays, with temperatures averaging in the early 20s on the centigrade scale. Whether you’re raising the next tennis pro, or want to give your kids the chance to let off some excess energy, April is perfect for an activity holiday.
Our favourite places to stay in April
Here is a selection of our favourite places to stay in April, handpicked by our expert team of hotel reviewers.
Disney World, Florida
The ultimate holiday destination for children of all ages, Disney World in Orlando, Florida is the place where dreams come true. Appeal to their inner princess or dragon slayer by whisking them away to the Disney castle. Older children will also love the hair-raising rides and rollercoasters and won’t be able to resist having their photo taken with Mickey. Whether it’s a Disney hotel or one of the many other resorts within reach, we’ll be able to advise you on where best to stay.
Olympic Lagoon Paphos, Cyprus
This brand new luxury all-inclusive resort will be opening in June 2015. It’s a fabulous family-friendly destination offering Family Junior Suites with sliding doors between you and the kids as well as a crèche for infants from 6 months, kids clubs and a teens club. Its 5 pools and blue flag beachfront location make it ideal for fun in the sun. Its scale and opulence will leave even the hard-to-please lost for words.
Sugar Beach, St Lucia
Located at the heart of the naturally spectacular valley of the Pitons, this luxurious resort is surrounded by lush rainforest and stunning views. With villas and residences available for families, each with their own personal butler service, you’ll be pampered from the moment you arrive. With only 78 rooms, this boutique hotel will provide all the privacy, peace and relaxation that you and your family deserve.
Shangri-la’s Barr Al Jissah resort, Oman
Made up of three separate hotels, we personally recommended the Al Waha Hotel for families, with its interconnecting rooms, children’s club and adult and children’s swimming pools. With four tennis courts, a spa and a games room, there’s plenty to keep adults entertained while the youngsters are being looked after.
With sweeping sea views, the Abama boasts an enviable and unspoilt location. There are spacious 1 or 2 bedroom suites whose interconnecting rooms give your family plenty of space to spread out. The hotel also comes with a complimentary children’s club for kids aged 4 to 12 (evenings are extra). An 18-hole golf course, spa, paddle tennis and traditional tennis courts provide plenty to keep teens and adults entertained.
