Family-friendly beachfront base
The Royal Holiday Palace is just a hop, skip, and a jump from the beach, where you can paddle in the sparkling sea, or kick back on one of the loungers lining the sand.
Head into the heart of the hotel’s grounds and you’ll find a huge outdoor pool criss-crossed by bridges. There’s also a section loaded with colourful slides to whiz down – one is for little ones, while the other is ready for adrenaline seeking teens and adults. Feeling thirsty or peckish? The poolside bars have got you covered with drinks and snacks.
Your taste buds will be delighted with the dining options here. As well as a buffet place, there are five à la carte restaurants to choose from, which serve up everything from Turkish, Italian and Mexican dishes to international eats. There are plenty of bars to quench your thirst, too – from poolside snack bars to a terrace bar, and a disco bar to party until the early hours!
Professional dance and music shows take place regularly during the week. For the little ones, there are pirate themed days and other fun activities at the kids’ club. There’s even an onsite fun fair! Enjoy the views from the Ferris wheel and bump around on the dodgems. You can also get involved with pool games, beach volleyball, tennis, aerobics, and darts, or spend time in the games room.
Indulge in a bit of me time at the spa, which comes complete with a Turkish bath, a sauna, a steam room, and a hot tub. You can also try out the hot stone therapies, Thai massages, and other body treatments. If that sounds too slow paced, why not work up a sweat in the gym or go for a swim in the indoor pool, which is heated in the winter months.
