Travelling with your family is sometimes challenging. The kids fight, they seem to have an insatiable hunger and they constantly ask if you have arrived at your destination.
We understand how that can make you apprehensive about booking a trip away, but try and remember that there are far more rewards to travelling with your family then not doing so. And while your children might not fully appreciate the value of it now – believe me they will. My parents prioritised two things as we grew up. 1. a good education and 2. travel. And while I’m pretty sure I didn’t entirely appreciate the trips my parents took us on for all they were worth when I was a kid, I loved the experience of travelling with my family nonetheless, and we often speak about those trips today. And I’m so grateful now that we travelled the way we did.
One thing my parents always did right was that they considered us when they booked their accommodation. What activities are on offer at the hotels? What facilities do they have? Are they central? Are they kid-friendly? These are questions you should be asking if you want the experience for your children to be truly memorable. So, you are heading to Spain and not sure which hotels in Calpe have entertainment and the best facilities for kids? Here are our top picks:
One of the ultimate hotels in Calpe for kids, the AR Imperial Park & Spa Resort, sits on the slopes of the hills that surround Calpe and has breathtaking views of the bay and the iconic Ifach Rock. This gorgeous property boasts ample facilities that kids will love, such as a huge outdoor swimming pool with slides for the kids to enjoy hours of sunshine in the summer and a weekend and summer entertainment programme that has exciting children-centered activities throughout the day – fun for the kids, and a little time out time for the parents. The family bungalows are wonderful for summer holidays. Another wonderful thing about this resort for the parents is that it has wonderful facilities for you too – an indulgent spa as an example – and it’s wonderfully all-inclusive, which means that you are afforded a truly stress-free holiday, where everything, down to the finest details, is arranged for you.
Another central hotel at the top of the best hotels in Calpe for kids list is the Roca Esmeralda Wellness & Spa Hotel.
