Although it seems early to start to plan the next 2015 summer holidays, many parents are already analysing the destination, accommodation and airline tickets. It is worth organizing a trip in advance, since now most of the hotel chains offer the best discounts: children stay free, early booking… And, besides, it is always easier to find now the accommodation you want than later, when rooms are almost sold out and availability is limited
Planning your holiday trip in advance is even most important when you travel with children or with all the members of the family (grandparents, uncles, nephews…) since the flexibility is much less if you are in charge of others.
A very easy way of considering the holiday with family is beginning to organise it soon, but also choose the most compatible destination with all those who will make part of the trip. Andalusia, the Spanish Levante, the Canary Islands or Majorca are always good options, because they combine all types of leisure possibilities: active tourism, water sports, complete cultural schedule for children and adults, interesting places to visit, theme parks, gastronomy…
Once the destination is chosen, the accommodation is the priority, it is even more important than the airline or train tickets, or the car route. Family hotels in Ibiza, beach resorts in Tenerife, theme hotels for children in Majorca… All of them offer specialized services for those who travel with kids and also want to enjoy their own holiday.
If you feel identified and if you are looking for holiday with children compatible with your rest, you must ensure a hotel with children’s entertainment, babysitting service, playgrounds and workshops.
Majorca is, in this sense, one of the tourist destinations where you ca rel=”nofollow”n find some of the best hotels for families. There you can choose among hotels with miniclub in Playa de Muro, in the north of the island and hotels with miniclub in Playa de Palma, just 2 minutes away from the airport and 10 minutes away from the centre of the Balearic capital.
But, in addition to services for children, it is necessary to seek an accommodation that gives you freedom and leisure plans for you to enjoy while your kids have fun in the miniclub or on the beach. So, you can include in your list golf hotels in Llucmajor, Majorca; family resorts in Lanzarote and hotels in Jandia with reserved areas for adults.
Choose hotels with family rooms, adjoining or double rooms with bunks or extra beds because it will give you the advantage of having always your children close, without giving up space. Likewise, try to stay at a hotel close to the main places and stations of the destinations, in order to have an easy access to public transport and travel the city quickly and comfortably.
Once you have chosen your holiday resort, you can choose your flight. Many companies offer discounts for large families to the main beach destinations in Spain, specially to the islands. Opting for travelling by car is also a good option if you prefer a hotel in Andalusia or Levante, but try to plan a short route. Remember that your holiday begins in the first minute of your trip, not when you have arrived to the destination.
