Croatia: the little country in the northwestern reach of the Balkan Peninsula is an increasingly popular holiday destination, and with good reason. It is beautiful, unique and very affordable, and its Mediterranean climate makes it perfect for a warm-weather break. If you’re on the look out for tips for a family-friendly holiday to remember, look no further: read on for our guide to some of the best resorts in Croatia for those travelling with little ones. |
Valamar Club Dubrovnik
Valamar is the brand behind some of the best resorts in Croatia, and as you’ll see from this list each one of its hotels has something that makes it special. This is the company’s only site, for example, in the bustling port city of Dubrovnik, and the only hotel in the area that advertises itself as family-friendly.
There’s a lot to recommend here. It’s very close to the centre of town, and offers outdoor film screenings, music and dance performances and a wide range of other activities to give you a fun-filled family holiday.
Valamar Club Tamaris Family Resort
Valamar’s Tamaris location is a marvel of sheer scale. First, the swimming options: in addition to being located on its own beach, this resort also boasts a dedicated pool for families, a quieter adults-only pool and private pools attached to each of its seafront villas. Other accommodation options include apartments and family suites, ensuring there’s something for holidaymakers of any preference. What’s more, the gigantic Maro Play Zone is, at almost 2km², enough to make this one of the best resorts in Croatia for children and families.
Don’t be fooled by the name – this four-star hotel is actually located in the lovely seaside resort of Porec, with its atmospheric Old Town and pebble beaches. The real attraction here is its closeness to the countryside, where guests can indulge in a variety of activities including bike and walking tours of historic sites. Children are well looked after and well occupied at the excellent Maro Club, and adults who prefer to stay at the resort can enjoy some much-needed ‘me time’ in the wellness centre. Activities for the whole family, meanwhile, include mini-golf, tennis, and much more.
As you can see, if you’re looking for family-friendly fun in a fast-rising area of Europe, this is the country for you. Croatia has been on the up and up ever since its accession to the European Union in 2013, and travel there has never been easier. Luxury quality at affordable rates is a feature of all the best resorts in Croatia, and each of these hotels provides all that and more. Each site is unique, and from the Adriatic to the inland regions around the capital, all tastes are catered for.
