If you’re a parent to young children, you’ll know that holidays are all about the little ones. Forget fancy dinners and long days sightseeing – your family trips are now about water slides, sandcastles, theme parks and evening entertainment with a holiday park mascot. Why not take it one step further and book a themed hotel room that your kids will surely love? Here are our top five themed hotels and suites that are just perfect for your next holiday.
Pirates Village Majorca
If your kids would love an adventure on the high seas, they’ll adore Pirates Village, a hotel on the family-friendly island of Majorca. This entire hotel is themed like a pirate ship, with plenty of skull-and-crossbones motifs, treasure maps and even rigging hanging from the ceiling in the restaurant! There’s a weekly pirate show with stage fights, fireworks and lights, and the central location means there’s plenty to do if you want to get out of the hotel for a while. Self-catering and all-inclusive options are available.
Disney’s Art of Animation Hotel – Orlando
If you’re pushing the boat out and going to Orlando for a Disney holiday, you simply must stay in this hotel, where all of the rooms are themed. The regular rooms have a Little Mermaid theme, the larger suites are based around The Lion King and there’s a Finding Nemo family suite which sleeps up to six people. The pools are themed, too, and the hotel regularly holds outdoor screenings of all your Disney favourites on an enormous screen.
Alton Towers – England
Some families prefer to have a ‘staycation’ instead of going abroad, and Alton Towers offers the perfect UK destination. Their collection of themed hotel rooms has something for everyone – you’ll find rooms based around Postman Pat, Charlie and Lola, Mike the Knight, Sonic the Hedgehog, Tree Fu Tom and many other current kids’ favourites. Alternatively, opt for the Chocolate Room or the Sleepover Suite for a truly special occasion!
Gulliver’s World – England
Gulliver’s World is another great UK destination for a family getaway, with plenty of themed rooms for little ones. The Princess Room is ideal for little girls who love to dress up, while the Western and Pirate Rooms are great for little boys and girls who seek a bit of action.
Legoland Hotel – California
The Legoland Hotel in California features three different theme rooms: kingdom, pirate or adventure. There are giant Lego people on the walls, amazing LEGO cityscapes in the grounds of the hotel, and even a waterpark, aquarium and theme park on-site!
