There’s no escaping from the fact that these days we all lead busy lives. It sometimes feels like around the clock battle of working, dropping the kids off here, there and everywhere and dashing around from morning till night. That’s why cheap family holidays are precious and needed more than ever.
We understand that it’s not always easy deciding on the best places to stay, particularly with little ones in tow so to give you a helping hand we’ve put together our top family-friendly hotels, each with the added benefit of a swim-up room.
A swim-up room comes with many benefits if you’re travelling with children. If the kids need an afternoon nap, they can do this in the comfort of your hotel room whilst you can still enjoy your time chilling on your private patio next to your swim-up pool. Or perhaps you hate the morning dash for sun loungers? With a swim-up room, there’s no need to set your alarm, you can enjoy a well-deserved lie in. So, do you fancy going from your room to the pool in 0.2 seconds? Here are our favourite family swim-up rooms.
