Although I normally do a long haul holiday with the kids, I’m actually looking forward to taking them somewhere a bit closer next year, like maybe somewhere like Tenerife. Although it’s not really gonna be much of a holiday for me, I’m actually looking forward to having some early nights and spending days in the pool or by the beach (which is really all the kids care about.)
Although it’s not the Caribbean, the weather is normally lovely there (well better than our crap weather anyway) they have real beaches, it’s not too far and it gives the kids a chance to practise their Spanish. Also because it will be more of a kids holiday it won’t take as much planning as a trip further afield, because all I need is somewhere clean, with a pool and good food reviews (because I refuse to get food poisoning again on a holiday) I would probably go Half Board and eat breakfast and dinner there and go out somewhere for lunch. Also I don’t need to look for a kids club (which saves money as hotels with kids clubs tend to be more expensive) because my 2 will be happy to be in the pool all day and explore in the afternoon.I don’t know that much about the Spanish Isles as I am probably one of the few people who didn’t go there as a child, so need to see where exactly is best to stay. But it should be a fab holiday.
