Child-friendly Holidays

Our child-friendly holidays do exactly what they say on the tin - they're perfect for anyone travelling as a family. You can expect hotels geared up for parents and children (all of which meet our family-friendly criteria), as well as expert advice from Family Trusted Advisers who are parents themselves.

The hotels we’ve selected have great facilities for kids of all ages, particularly school-age children – if yours are younger or older, you might like to have a look at our baby-friendly, toddler-friendly and teen-friendly holidays.

Our full range of child-friendly hotels is listed below, along with further details of what you can look forward to on a Sovereign family holiday – take a look and see what takes your fancy, or give us a call for holiday recommendations tailored to your family’s needs.

  • A dedicated Family Trusted Adviser on hand for help, advice and planning from start to finish
  • Our child-friendly hotels are personally visited by parents in the team
  • Ask us about kids' clubs, dining arrangements and experiences for the whole family

Family Traveller Awards 2017

For the second year running, we have the great honour of having been voted the runner up for the  "Best Luxury Tour Operator for Families".

At Sovereign, we strive to create and offer the best family holidays and with our customers in mind, have created our specialist family collection - with a portfolio of luxury properties designed to make family holidays even more special and allow you to sit back and make new family memories.

Handpicked family hotels

All of our child-friendly hotels have fantastic facilities for families. They've got kids' clubs with tons of games and activities to keep little ones busy, plus they'll often have extras like splash pools, waterslides, playgrounds and sports facilities.  On the food front, you can usually expect child-friendly dishes or dedicated menus, as well as early meal sittings (perfect for kids who are prone to tiredness tantrums).

If you think you’ll need a little extra space, we can recommend the best family-sized rooms to suit you, or book interconnecting rooms. For even more room, you might want to consider one of our family suites or hotel villas.
