People traveling with children know how hard it can get. Kids get tired, they don’t like the places you take them too, they complain and sometimes even catch a cold, and above all – they love to play and spend time with other kids. So what to do when you are in Dubai, far from your child’s playground and kindergarten and there are no grandparents around to help you? We will try to tell you which are the best so-called ‘family hotels’, most suitable to stay in when you are traveling with your dear children.
Le Royal Meridien is a hotel specially oriented to host entire families. It has a small water park which can provide you with a person to spend some time with your child while you go shopping or just need to rest. They have a special ‘kid’s club’ whit all kinds of entertainment for the youngest and three swimming pools with slides where your kid can learn to swim for the first time. This is not a downtown hotel, but it is one of those that you don’t even need and want to leave.
The Anantara Dubai Palm Resort & Spa is said to be one of the best places to stay if you have your kids with you in Dubai. Everything looks prettier than on a post card. Bright colors catch your kid’s eye immediately. In the sector of resort specialized for children there is something for each and every child; swings, slides, mini swimming pools, man-sized dolls of cartoon characters and super heroes. There are monitors trained to work with children of all ages and entertainers like clowns and magicians. You can also hire a nanny within a resort and she will take more than a good care of your child. They often organize excursions for groups of children taking them to Dubai Zoo and Museums.
Majestic Hotel Tower Dubai is very popular among family people because it has wonderful pools specially adapted for children and they have shuffles taking you to and back from the beaches of Dubai. That is important because not all of the beaches are approachable and not all of them have free entrance for everybody. These shuttles will take you and your entire family to those that are opened and have special programs for children, and kids are known to love beaches.
The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina is also among the most popular resorts among families. They encourage parents to leave their kids at the hotel and go sightseeing or waterskiing while their children stay in the resort building sand castles, enjoy food specially prepared and arranged for them, play quiz games with the monitors, teachers and babysitters and go on a pony rides in the beach.
Park Regis Kris Kin Hotel is always the first choice of those parents who imagine their boys and girls becoming sportspersons one day. This hotel has a range of tennis, basketball and squash courts with professional trainers who are always glad to help your children making their first steps as tennis players or basket ballers.
