Family Resorts - Happy Holidays both for Children and Their Parents
When you are going on tour with your children, remember that what is a perfect rest for you may be something different for them. Perhaps you want to lie on a beach and have them by your side to be sure nothing dangerous will happen. But if you are concerned not only about their safety, but also about their having fun during the holidays, you should choose a resort which would meet both your and their interests. For that purpose are special family resorts. They include everything a grown-up and a child will need. You must know exactly what will be good for you and interesting for the children and take it into consideration when buying a package. There are some details to which you should pay attention:
the room must be furnished so that there was a cot and appliances for children's safety. There must be such things as bicycles, perambulators, swimming equipment, playpens, etc. Then you will not have to take them from home;
the space in front of the hotel must be equipped with kiddie pools, activity pools, a close zone providing the safety of the children. Besides, make it sure that the staff includes nurses who will take care of the children while they are away from you;
there must be areas for ages 4 and under;
in some hotels there dining rooms (or special menus in the restaurants and bars), theme parties, mini discos, shows and games for children;
if your child is under 4, you would better take a room on the ground floor so that he could go out of the hotel himself;
make it sure that the floor in the room is not tiled - it is not healthy for the child;
there should be conditioners in the room to regulate temperature;
you should have there a possibility to feed your kid whenever it is necessary; some products for kids may be difficult to find there, so you'd better take them with you. You should be provided with unbreakable plates and dishes;
you should learn children of what ages may be taken to this resort in that your child cold find there friends of the same age to play with;
pebble and sandy beaches are the most preferable ones.
Going to a family resort with kids you should remember that the need time to get adapted to the new conditions. On coming to the hotel let them sleep a little, and the next day is also better to spend in the hotel. The time of sunbathing should be increased gradually. The best hours for it are before 11a.m. and after 4p.m. Use sunscreens for children ("Mothercare", "Dermophil", "Johnson&Jonson", "Beiersdorf", "Bubñhen", "Garnier", "Eveline", "Oriflame") choosing them by the SPF number to suit to your child's skin type. Smother his body for 20-30 minutes before sunbathing. After bathing in the sea wipe him dry with a towel and change the clothes. Besides, take with you something to protect your child's head from overheating. Sun-glasses made of polycarbonate are also useful.
Before taking the child to the resort, consult with your pediatrician to know what medicines for the child you should put into your travel first-aid kit. It must always be at hand - not in the luggage. Try to avoid tasting exotic food and drink bottled water - not tap water. Prefer restaurants in the hotel to any other outside.
To make your travel to the family resort pleasant both for you and your child take some toys and games to entertain him, and, of course, take his most favorite toy.
Let these holidays be bright and unforgettable for you!
