Holidaying with baby – whether it’s for the first time or you have a lucky little jetsetter on your hands – is always exciting. The opportunity to introduce your tiny explorer to new things, while enjoying some much needed R&R as a family, is the stuff that amazing memories are made of. However, travelling with the smallest member of your family does present its challenges and will require extra planning to ensure that the holiday is memorable for all the right reasons.
Choosing the right hotel goes a long way towards the kind of holiday you will have, and families with babies and young children will have different requirements than other holidaymakers when it comes to entertainment.
When you choose a family holiday with Thomas Cook, you have your pick of very special FamilyWORLD hotels and resorts, which specifically cater for little ones, meaning that you can rest assured that you’ll have everything you need for a stress-free family holiday.
The Stella Palace Hotel in Crete is one great example. Set right on Analipsi’s beach, you won’t have far to go for a paddle in the sea, and the location, quiet but within easy reach of Analipsi Town Centre and lively Heraklion, offers the best of both worlds. Like all FamilyWORLD hotels, there’s a Thomas Cook kids’ club, and the pools, complete with waterslides, will keep the whole family busy having a splashing good time in the sunshine.
If you’d like to spend some precious time relaxing while your baby is well looked after on holiday, the Blanc Palace Resort in Sa Caleta, Menorca has crèche facilities for babies from the age of 6 months. Any older children will also love the kids’ club, children’s pools, playgrounds, play room and mini disco, whereas the programme of sports facilities will suit active teens and adults.
On a practical note, FamilyWORLD resorts offer fantastic family-sized accommodation, with travel cots, baby baths, potties and a full range of baby and toddler equipment available for you to use in your room. This helps to minimise disruption to your little one’s routine and make your hotel accommodation a real home from home. You’ll also find a baby service centre with all that you need to make up bottles and baby’s special meals – no need to worry about fitting that steriliser in your suitcase after all!
When it comes to keeping babies and tots happy and occupied on holiday, FamilyWORLD hotels have got it covered. From Toddler Time activity programmes for the under 3’s to fantastic slides and play equipment, both in and out of the water. Plus, don’t forget to say hello to Dizzy and Shades, our friendly FamilyWORLD characters!
Let Thomas Cook FamilyWORLD hotels take the hassle out of holidays with young children, leaving you time to enjoy making magical memories of amazing family quality time in the sun.
