Taking the Kids on Holiday to Cyprus

If you are going on holiday as a couple or even with a group of single friends, it is a lot easier than if you have children to take. When you do not have children, then factors such as kid’s entertainment, swimming pool, distance from amenities and other activities do not seem as important. As adults, we are far easier entertained than children, it seems. So if you are looking at hotels in Cyprus for your next holiday, there are some things that you can do to make sure that your destination has plenty to keep the children occupied during your visit.

Choosing a Hotel and Location

Choosing the right location is very important to having a great holiday. Especially if you have young children, you do not want them to have to walk too far in the sun and heat. You need to find a good quality hotel which has all of the amenities that you want, but is also centrally located to the surrounding attractions, restaurants and shops.

  • Beach
  • Swimming Pool
  • Restaurants
  • Bars
  • Excursions

All of these can play an important part in keeping the kids happy and entertained. Each family is different though, so what you need to do is work out your own list of things, which are important to you and your family. Then you need to get online and get a map up of the general area you are looking to stay. Then see which hotels are within the area that you are looking at. You will then be able to look on the hotels website and see what they have to offer. You can also get some firsthand reviews from people that have stayed there before on various travel websites and forums.  This is a great insight to actually staying in your potential holiday and can give you some great information to help you choose. The last thing that you want is to stay at a hotel, which has a building site or disco right next to it. Going through the reviews on the internet can help to make your choice where to stay a lot easier, if you do plenty of research and go through all of the available options.

Kids and the Sun

When you go away to Cyprus, you need to make sure that you take enough sun block for both you and the kids whilst you are away. If you and the kids are going to be in and out of the water all day, make sure you get waterproof sun block and keep adding it periodically throughout the day. Try not to let your kids out in the sun for long periods of time without having some sort of protection. You can get them to swim in a T-Shirt to help protect their skin from the sun, but you will still need to apply sun block to their skin. Another thing is to make sure that you all keep properly hydrated if you are not used to the heat. Make sure you all drink plenty of fluids and you may even wish to consider salt tablets if you are going at the hottest time of the year.

Planning Your Stay

You can easily get all of your excursions and activities planned before you get to Cyprus. You can go to a website such as Trip Advisor, who also do hotel reviews, and get people’s opinions on the things that they have done whilst they were on holiday in Cyprus. They can recommend family orientated things, and how it was for the kids. This will give you an idea of times involved, and you will know if it is expensive and worthwhile. If you searched the internet for 50 things to do in Cyprus, you would no doubt come back with a long list of things which might be good for you and your family to experience. Using the reviews you find online, you can easily narrow this down to a number of things which you will be able to fit into your holiday. Always remember though that you should have a couple of rest days for you and the kids so you can just lounge by the pool or on the beach. Do you want to come back from your holiday feeling like you need another holiday?
