Punta Cana is one of the most beautiful regions of the Dominican Republic and the Caribbean so the Punta Cana Hotels could not be better placed to enjoy this heavenly setting. At the Lopesan Costa Bavaro Resort Spa & Casino Punta Cana Hotel you can relax as hard as you like!

There’s a programme of entertainment for kids and teenagers at the kid’s club, leaving adults time to enjoy the spa, 7 freshwater pools, fitness classes and the water sports.
There is a kids swimming pool, adult only pool, plus The Boulevard – the best location in the area for shopping, entertainment and eating.

We can’t blog about child friendly holiday resorts without including one of the world’s leaders in entertainment; Disney. Arguably the best is the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Florida because of its location – right at the gates to Disney’s Magic Kingdom. The highlight of the hotel itself for the kids is the pool and its as you would expect, with a 242-foot-long waterslide, lazy river and splash pad. Plus, there’s an all-important kids camp and complimentary shuttles to the park. Adults will appreciate the 13,000 square feet of spa and 18-hole golf course, followed by unwinding in the large tubs back in the hotel room.

Nestled on 65 acres of the picture-perfect Grace Bay, this all-inclusive resort includes a kid’s camp, craft studio, 45,000-square-foot water park, and for something a bit different, an Xbox games garage and DJ-spinning academy to keep the kids involved.
