CHILDS PLAY – A FEW OF OUR FAVOURITE KIDS CLUBS
When planning any family holiday one of the most important things we look for is to ensure where ever we chose to stay there are plenty of fun filled activities for the kids to explore and enjoy.
A great kids club with amenities that offers the kids wonderful activities that are fun but also offering activities that allow the kids to learn about the destination, whether this is abroad or local.
Most family friendly hotels and resorts these days offer incredible programs catering for children and families. Most offering fun and creative activities that are also educational.
We also really love that our children meet other children from all over the world making new friends along the travel journey is also a wonderful part of any holiday.
We enjoy our time together as a family when on holiday experiencing new and wonderful activities and experiences, however it is nice for the kids to have the option to spend a couple of hours when they chose/how they like (also allowing mum and dad time to enjoy some quiet time, or indulge in a spa treatment or two )
Our children have experienced some incredible kids clubs during our family holidays.
I have put together a handful of our favourite kids clubs that we have personally experienced and have found to be a winner with our kids.
