Croatia is a stunning country with a wealth of history and culture to offer all visitors. In the summer is it a popular destination for families who enjoy playing on the beaches and exploring the country’s charming towns beneath the warm sun. There are a range of festivals, events and celebrations that take place across the country in the summer months meaning there is always something going on for a busy family. |
Today I am going to reveal the best resorts in Croatia for those travelling with children, featuring stunning hotels set in lovely family-friendly locations.
Hotel Olympia Sky in Šibenik
This whimsically-named hotel is located in the historical city of Šibenik. The Hotel Olympia Sky is one of the best resorts in Croatia for families as it provides easy access to Šibenik’s Children’s Festival. This delightful festival is held every year in June and July and is a glorious celebration of the best bits of childhood. Focusing on imagination and creativity, the festival includes games, art, music, workshops, theatrical performances, puppet shows and film screenings – enough to keep even the most energetic children busy!
The hotel itself will keep the grown-ups happy too. The tastefully-furnished rooms have all the mod-cons and a delicious buffet breakfast is served each morning. The large pool is perfect for family swimming sessions and the children’s club will keep the little ones entertained if mummy and daddy want five minutes’ peace!
The Valamar Club Tamaris in Istria
When you’re travelling with children, all-inclusive options are often best. Resorts in Croatia like the Valamar Club Tamaris provide all meals as well as snack and drinks, and offer spacious family suites and a friendly animation team to keep the children entertained.
This lovely hotel is very close to the gorgeous beach in Istria, as well as a beloved family favourite, the Dinosaur Park. Atmospherically located in an old stone quarry, this park – compete with life-sized dinosaurs, trampolines, a playground, circus performances, an amusement park, a rollercoaster and a swinging pirate ship – has something for everyone. If you have a child who is really enthusiastic about our prehistoric friends, take them to an excavation workshop or the prehistoric sea creature exhibit.
Also nearby is a maze of fascinating caves filled with unusual stalagmites and stalactites. These interesting geological creations are ideal if you want to introduce an educational note to your holiday activities.
The Valamar Club in Dubrovnik
The Valamar Club hotel in Dubrovnik offers families a variety of organised sports such as tennis, basketball and football, which will get everyone feeling hungry before diving into its mouth-watering, all-inclusive buffet. The hotel is located in the beautiful car-free city of Dubrovnik, so you don’t have to worry about busy roads or dangerous crossings. Dubrovnik’s Roman heritage is sure to fascinate visitors of all ages with plenty to do and see, including the walking the city walls, exploring the forts and marvelling at the Sponza Palace.
I hope I have inspired you to try out one of the best resorts in Croatia for yourself on your next family holiday in the sun!
