family holidays  in croatia

family holidays croatia

Croatia is a magical place for a family holiday and we generally recommend staying at more than one place in order to discover as much as possible about this dreamy Adriatic destination.

For families with older children, we reckon the best holiday option in Croatia is the 5 star Monti Mulini resort (pictured above), and for families with children of any age, the best all-rounder is definitely the Radisson Sun Gardens near Dubrovnik.

Both are featured in our recommended best family resorts

Monte Mulini is a luxury hotel located yards from the sea in a quiet, scenic bay near Rovinj, in northern Croatia.  Perfectly positioned for numerous activities and excursions, ideal for both adults and families with older children.

The hotel, a short walk from the stunning medieval town of Rovinj, is set in pretty gardens and the swimming pools and sparkling sea are the ideal places to spend a sunny day.  Croatia is well known for its clear aquamarine sea and you can dive in from a public pontoon right in front of the hotel.

For the more active and adventurous, you can walk or cycle with a picnic into the national park to find hidden beaches. The coast is also covered with little islands, perfect for exploring from one of the small boats that are available to hire locally.

Radisson Sun Gardens is located 11km from the magical city of Dubrovnik (with a daily boat shuttle service offered to guests) and the resort provides a truly exceptional choice of rooms, suites and residences.  With a beach, 3 swimming pools, kids' club, spa, fitness, pilates, squash and tennis - there's lots on offer to suit all ages and interests.

For those interested in snorkelling or scuba diving, we would recomend Adriana on the island of Hvar or the extraordinarily good value Hotel Odisej on the gorgeous little island of Mljet.  Anoter superb option for families is Hotel Dubrovnik Palace

For the ultimate in family holidays, we would recommend a skippered and fully crewed gullet or yacht, as this is the perfect way to explore the region in style and comfort.

Lastly, how about renting one of our charming villas on the island of Vis?
