If you are traveling as a family and children are with you, then you are going to want to find accommodation that is going to fit the needs of everybody, and especially the kids. Keeping the kids cooped up in a small room for any period of time can be a little daunting. You want to make sure that you are choosing a hotel where rooms are large enough to at least allow the children to move around freely.
Usually when on vacation you’re not spending a great deal of time in the room
you have booked, but what if the weather is not cooperating? Then you may find that there are times that you are going to have to remain indoors. If this is the case, you want this to be a good experience.
It is important to keep this in mind when choosing your hotel, as you should ideally be able to check out the amenities before you arrive. If you are doing your research online most often there will be resource sites listing all the different features and amenities that the hotel has.
Some of the important ones for the kids are going to be a swimming pool, a gym room, and a games room. If you see that these are listed when you are calling to make your reservation (preferably do that rather than booking online), make sure that these amenities are functional.
There is nothing more disappointing for the kids or for yourself to get at your accommodation and find out that the swimming pool is under construction. You also want to determine if the pool is an indoor or outdoor one. If you are being stuck in because the weather is bad, and the hotel only has a outdoor pool then again it is not going to be of much use for keeping the kids active and happy.
