Hello
I’ve been going round in circles...We are looking to book an All Inclusive 5* hotel for July/Aug 2020. Can anyone recommend somewhere of a really high standard that’s got lots to keep 2 active boys happy (aged 9 and 12) and ideally somewhere that might offer something for kids to do a few evenings so that my husband and I could have just a few adult only meals!! Also ideally a hotel that has separate bedrooms or sliding doors as so many of them seem to have the 4 of us in one open room, even when paying a lot! One of my sons is a coeliac so a great understanding of dietary issues is also essential.
Thinking of Mexico but I know that seaweed seems to be a big problem on a lot of beaches there, any advice? We all love the beach!
Any personal recommendations (or good websites) would be really really appreciated! 😊😊

JW Mariott in Phuket (Mai Khao) was nice and is quite family friendly. I can't remember if they did evening childcare but it might be worth checking out.

Hi Zigzaggy! I'd recommend giving Rich Vein Travel, Kuoni and Carrier a try. Maybe get a quote from each then see which one you like the most in terms of price and destination etc Smile

Have you looked at Finest Playa Mujeures in Mexico. We haven't been but we've booked for December, we used to go to their adult only resorts pre-kids now we have a 1 year old we are giving their kid friendly resort a try.

www.finestresorts.com/cancun/finest-playa-mujeres

They have separate rooms and childcare specifically covering breakfast and dinner so the parents can eat alone.

Obviously can't comment on what its like as we haven't been but if its a similar standard to their adult only resorts we will be happy. We booked via Caribbean Warehouse and got a free room upgrade.

We book two rooms now with two kids . Much much better holiday with two to a room. Worth the extra cost. We have a girls room and a boys room! My dd and me share and ds and dh share and I don't have to listen to dh snoring and everyone wins!
