With so many incredible family resorts to be found across the world, it’s not always easy knowing which one to choose for your upcoming family holiday. On paper, just about every resort will look amazing. In reality, not all of them are as family-friendly as they seem to be at first glance.
How do you know whether they are the right choice for you and your kids? For starters, you can ask the right questions when considering family resorts.
Questions to Consider When Choosing Family Resorts
Questions to ask when selection family resorts include the following:
- What is the best time to go? It is always good to consider the times of year you plan to book and travel. Booking in advance is a great way to help you save, while booking at last minute can mean higher prices. Peak travel seasons during your chosen destination will have increased prices. You will also want to go when the weather is at its best. Always do your homework to find out which time is best for your budget and needs.
- What is included in this package? This is very important to ask before you make any decisions. Most all inclusive travel packages will clearly outline exactly what is offered. A typical example will be travel, accommodation, some meals and selected activities. Some resorts may only include accommodation and meals however, while some may give you a wider range of included extras.
- What is not included? Just as important to ask is what is NOT included. Be wary of deals that seem too good to be true. You may find that the excluded items are hidden away in fine print. If you cannot easily find what is not included, always ask your travel company to clarify.
- What activities are offered? What will you and the kids be able to do at the resort and its surrounds? You can do some online research to find out whether the resort offers free and paid activities. Depending on your location, this could be anything from ski lessons to scuba diving and snorkelling trips, water sports, tennis, entertainment, tours, spa treatments, kids’ activities, horse riding, and many, many other options.
- What facilities are offered? How child-friendly is the resort? Facilities that cater more to adults than children are never ideal. A good resort should have a kids’ play area, swimming pools, space for little ones to run around and suites or rooms that are suitable for visitors of all ages. If you have a baby in tow, you should also be able to hire cots, and other equipment for infants.
