1. You’ll Feel Like You’re on Vacation
One of the most surprising things to me about attending a luxury family-friendly resort is how expertly the resort is designed to make you feel like you’re actually on vacation. Many other “family-friendly” resorts are actually code for one thing and one thing only: kid-friendly. That means goofy characters, crazy colors, and endless stimulation.
In contrast, a resort like Bahia Principe Fantasia, truly feels luxurious, with calming beige-and-marble color schemes, a welcoming tropical drink at check-in, plenty of adult bars and entertainment that blend into the kid features, such as the pool and central castle. I never really realized how completely not relaxing other vacations we have taken have been, because they are so kid-centric. This resort truly felt like the best of both worlds.
