Travelling with the kids can be an absolute joy. To see the smiles on their faces as they take off to explore a whole new world fills parents with joy. From the moment of touch down however it can turn to absolute dread if you haven’t chosen your destination carefully.
“What can we do?” will be the question that haunts you in your sleep. “I’m bored!” will be the statement that makes you wish you were back home. Back home in the rain, the cold, and the wind.
Unless of course you choose wisely. Making sure there’s something for the kids is essential to picking a holiday, whilst going all inclusive will allow them to stay refreshed, fed, and enjoying plenty of activities with no extra cost. At alpharooms.com we like to give a little bit of a helping hand, so the research for you is as easy as booking with us.
So, without further ado, here are our favourite family destinations for a fun fuelled, unforgettable all inclusive holiday for the whole family.
Disney World, Orlando
There’s only really one place to start here, Disney World. It’s almost every child’s dream to run into Minnie and Mickey as well as all their other favourite characters and there are packages to suit every need.
Disney Dining Plans allow holidaymakers to choose how much they want to spend on food, with a huge amount of offerings across the park. That’s on top of your park ticket of course. Which is the main draw for children and adults alike.
The Magic Kingdom is the perfect park for those wanting to see all the characters in the famous Disney Parade, whilst animal lovers will want to head to the Animal Kingdom where Simba the lion cub lives and the African style savannah is like being transported to Africa right in the heart of Florida.
A popular haunt for British tourists, Benidorm benefits from 25°C heat during the height of summer, and fabulous all inclusive resorts all year round.
The city has built itself a reputation for being a family friendly paradise with almost four million tourists visiting the Alicante destination every year. Resorts such as the Magic Aqua Rock Gardens and Sol Pelicanos Ocas offer the ideal family holiday in Benidorm, whilst what you save on drinks and meals all inclusive, you can spend on the wide range of activities spread right across the city.
With theme parks, water worlds, and a fantastic zoo there’s plenty to keep all the family entertained, whilst the wealth of kids clubs allows parents to sit back, relax, and enjoy the sunshine.
Located right on the French and Swiss border, Avoriaz is the place to take your children to learn to ski, and enjoy a snow-filled adventure. Built in the 1960s specifically for skiing, the slopes offer plenty for beginners and experts alike, whilst the Village des Enfants is one of its major attractions allowing parents to drop of their kids and take to the black runs.
Chalets are full of activities for youngsters and Aquariaz is the largest water park ever built in the mountains with activities suiting all ages including a slidewinder, a water playhouse, and calm, relaxing pools to while away an afternoon.
Corfu may be renowned for Kavos and its party side, but it’s also a hotspot for families holidaying too.
The hot Mediterranean climate allows families to splash around in the sea in the glorious sunshine, whilst resorts offer fantastic all inclusive options with great local brews (for the adults of course) and plenty of fine Greek cuisine.
Resorts like the Marbella Corfu hotel in Moraitika offer a range of activities alongside a children’s pool and waterslides, all with access to a private beach. The island is full of incredible resorts like this, offering marvellous summer holidays for the entire family.
Tenerife is most certainly an island of intrigue. With mountainous terrain, volcanoes, glorious beaches, water parks, and even a professional football club, there’s something for everyone to explore, that’s if you can drag yourself away from the luxury all inclusive resorts of course.
Just as ideal for winter sun as it is for the summer months, the regions of Costa Adeje and neighbouring Playa de las Americas have lots to offer including plenty of luxury. The Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque has a number of pools for children to splash around in, and the spa is the best spot for parents to get away from it all whilst the kids are enjoying a fairy tale world designed especially for youngsters.
Outside of the resorts, Siam Park is one of the best theme parks in the whole of the Canaries and claims to be the most spectacular water attraction in Europe. We can’t really argue with that.
