Family Of Five Vacation Resorts

Family of Five ResortsGoing on a family of five vacation? Are you looking to travel with more than one or two children? It can be frustrating finding a resort that has rooms which can accommodate 5 people because most hotels will only allow 4 people in a room, some only 3 people!

Sometimes having two rooms is nice, but it can also be more costly and inconvenient, especially if the children are young. And even if you are not family of five, these are great family friendly resorts for everyone.

Depending where you go, sometimes a condo style hotel is the best option. In Orlando for example, you can rent an entire house with a pool! The added bonus is that these come with full kitchens so you can also save money by eating some meals in.

Best Family Beach Vacations has compiled this list of beach resorts that will accept up to three children with two adults in one room – sometimes more. Although most are, not all the resorts listed here are all-inclusive.

Please check to make sure what is included when you book for your family of five vacation. We also recommend that you try to book in far advance as possible, sometimes there are a limited number of rooms that can accommodate larger families and they tend to book up quickly.

Keep in mind that the travel industry is very fickle and rules for airfares – hotels etc. change all the time. This list is accurate at time of posting but if something has changed or you know of another resort we can add for larger families, please let us know!

Finding the right resort is critical.You’ll find that family resorts are now very popular is destinations like the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, and even various beaches and mountain destinations in North America. With so many of them to choose from, how do you pick the one that best suits your needs?

To find the right resort, it’s necessary to consider your budget, your modes of travel, accommodations, dining options, and of course, the family activities that you can enjoy at each location.

Accommodations

When choosing a resort, make sure that you take a careful look at accommodations. Most beach resorts showcase beautiful views, and these alone can be a real pleasure. Ocean view rooms usually cost a bit more than those overlooking the gardens or the pool, but you get what you pay for.

Many people find it worth the extra money to wake up in the morning to fresh ocean breezes and the sight of sparkling blue water.

Besides the type of view, rooms are also classified according to their size and the number of people that they can comfortably hold. Usually, room rates are tailored for two adults and two children. When travelling with more than two kids, you may have to ask for a rollaway bed or ask for an adjoining room which can be a bit more expensive.

If you can afford it, you can also opt for suites that have a terrace or living area that allows for greater freedom of movement.

Many families find villas and cottages the ideal; these often come with a refrigerator, a washer, and a kitchenette where you can prepare your own meals. If you’re travelling with a baby, some resorts will let you borrow equipment like a baby monitor, crib, or stroller.
