The Dana Beach Resort
The resort where we stayed was ideal for families. We went on an all inclusive package, so it was easy for any of us to get a drink or snack when the mood struck. The resort was massive, with a big reception complex, 2 heated pools, a spa centre, 2other pools, a huge seawater lagoon, many restaurants and bars and a large beach area.
Once we had seen the lay of the land, the kids were given the freedom to roam and play as they wanted, as long as they stayed together.
The minigolf and the paddleboats on the lagoon were favourites, and they also spent a lot of time building and playing on the beach. All interspersed with crepes, ice-creams, plates of chips and soft drinks.
A perfect holiday for the kids! There were lots of sun lounges by the pools and the beach, and the hardest decision each day was where to base the families, beach or pool? The resort had a great Spa complex, a diving centre and lots of other activities if you chose to enjoy them, or just lie back on a sun lounge, read a book and sleep...
Our room faced onto the beach, and had enough room for us all.
When we felt too lazy to walk up to breakfast, a motorboat taxi ran the length of the lagoon, from the beach to the reception.
This made getting up and down the complex very easy (and was a great way to cruise around the complex to check in on the kids!)
