Resort holidays are ideal for families who would like everything on their doorstep. With great facilities, a chance to make lots of new friends and often located on or very close to the beach, resort holidays are the perfect stress-free choice for families looking for some holiday fun. But with so many different accommodation options to choose from, how do you know what’s right for your family?

Whether you’re after privacy, luxury, convenience or anything else, we’ve got plenty of great family friendly resort options available – so check out our guide to deciphering resort holiday room options!

 

Resort Villas, Houses or Comfort Residences 

What they are:

Completely separate and private accommodation options, but still with access to all of the usual resort facilities. They are sometimes based on the outskirts of resorts, with a little bit of distance from the central hub, so are suited to families who don’t really want to be right in the thick of things. Many of them also have private pools.

Holiday Experience:

Families looking for privacy and peace, but who also want to be able to use resort facilities and to have a chance for little ones to make friends.

Best for:

Larger families who would like all the peace of villa holiday, but still with access to great facilities.

Resort Suites 

What they are:

One bedroom accommodation, sometimes with an additional living space or balcony so that parents can still stay up and chat once their little one is asleep. They are often very centrally located, making it easy to get to all the resort’s facilities but sometimes may not have full self catering facilities.

Holiday Experience:

Families who would like easy access to everything the resort offers and who don’t require a lot of space or necessarily need their own cooking facilities

Best for:

Small families with a baby or young child still in a cot.

Resort Suites Plus/Deluxe Suites 

What they are:

2+ bedroom suites with a living space and sometimes luxury perks such as private Jacuzzis. These can be more expensive than regular suites, but offer lots of additional perks and room. These are often very centrally located on the resort, close to all the facilities.

Holiday Experience:

Families looking for space and luxury, with great access to resort facilities in a central location.

Best for:

Medium sized families with two or three children, or smaller families holidaying with grandparents

Tots Picks:

 

Resort Apartments 

What they are:

Almost a hybrid between a suite and a villa, apartments tend to have their own private space and self catering facilities, but are still quite small and affordable, and are often closer to the centre of the resort than full villas might be.

Holiday Experience:

Families looking for the flexibility and privacy of having self-catering accommodation, but who still want to be close to the resort and don’t mind sacrificing a bit of space to do so.

Best for:

Small families with young children or families travelling with grandparents.
