Next summer Kaitlin is off to Cancun in Mexico with her best friend for 10 nights leaving us all behind. She is super excited and will be staying at the Moon Palace Resort which looks amazing. When I took a look I was amazed at all the things that you can do. The restaurants cover something for everyone’s taste and dietary requirements and wow the rooms. She will have a Jacuzzi bath in the room. Jealous just a little.
So whilst she is off to 5* luxury me and the men in the house need to slum it and find ourselves a holiday to. It certainly wont be long haul to Mexico but it will be paradise and sunshine all the same. We have been looking into various places in the canaries to go. We have looked into DIY holidays as well as a package holiday. Whilst looking we came across a great website to compare prices and companies click here to take a look for yourselves.
This year we went to Butlins in Skegness which was the boys first holiday. As you can see from the picture above they loved it at the beach. We were really luck in regards to the weather because this is Britain after all. This is why we have decided on our first abroad trip for them. Currently we are thinking Lanzarote because we have been before and know what its like. This will be the first holiday abroad for the twins and their first plane ride. The canaries are far enough away they get great weather and the flight time is just about right, not to long and not to short that you feel rushed.
Its been a while since we have been to the canaries though and we just can’t decide whether to do DIY and book a villa and flight separately or book a package with a travel company and kids clubs etc. Last time we went all inclusive we didn’t eat in the hotel much and then we spent a fortune eating out.
There are so many things to think about when taking young children abroad. We want them to have the best time on their first trip abroad but I am so nervous about the heat, the food, swimming pools and the sea. I think i need to just let Neil book it and forget about it till closer to the time. I am going to drive myself mad otherwise looking for the perfect holiday.
Do you have any recommendations for great family places to stay?
We would like a pool, close to the beach and somewhere fun for all of us. Please drop us a comment below to help us in our search.
