5 Tips to Make Your Family Beach Vacation Unforgettable

 

  1.  Involve the children in the planning process.  Share and show them pictures of the possible destinations.  Find out what activities are important to them.  For example, for our last family trip I let each of our three children choose an excursion.  This gave us 3 of our 7 days off the resort doing things we knew they would each enjoy.
  2. Pick a resort with a good kid’s activity program.  Make sure the program the resort offers has activities that your child would enjoy participating in. Be sure that the resorts activities cater to the age of your children. Not all resorts have activities that entertain that “tween” and “teen” crowd.  When your children are busy being entertained, you can steal some time for yourselves.
  3. Pick a resort with a variety of dining options.  We all know how picky kids can be when it comes to eating.  Make sure the resort has a good buffet option. It is also helpful when they have an American option that you know the kids will go for, such as a Pizzeria.  And, if you child has any food allergies check before booking to see if the allergies can be accommodated. Often the chef will meet with you to arrange necessary meal plan for your stay.  Several resorts chains have now begun to include gluten free options for their guests, as well as handling, dairy and peanut allergies.
  4. Pick a resort that provides spacious room accommodations.  When you are used to having your own bedroom and or bath each morning it is important to take into account the size and amenities of the room types at the resorts you consider for your family. Many resorts now offer bunk bed options for families of 5, separate rooms for kids, and family suites with 2 bedrooms.
  5. Remember to relax.  You are on vacation after all.  Consider locking the electronics in the room safe.  Do activities together and apart (Spa time for mom?).  But most of all just have FUN!

 

PS: Don’t forget to use your favorite travel professional to help you find the perfect resort match for you!

My family love the beach. I wish we lived closer to one, but we sure appreciate the times we do get to spend at the beach. My son?s favorite thing is to dig really big holes and try to fill up with water with the help of Sand Hole bucket.
