Just because Ikos Dassia is chic and contemporary, that doesn’t mean children are not welcome too. Concierge is on hand with child seats and amenities to pick everyone up from the airport in private transfers to the property. A programme of organised events and games ensures is on offer to keep the kids busy every day of the week, while parents can relax knowing their little ones are in very safe hands. With activities including tennis, water polo and football, and a range of hosted entertainment options with Greek dancing, musical shows and performances, there is plenty that the whole family can enjoy together. There is a range of 411 rooms, suites and villas across the 23-acre beachfront resort, with spacious balconies, private gardens and individual pools, providing enough space for everyone whatever your preference. Weaning, baby and toddler menus – using imaginative food cooked without salt and sugar – are available in the restaurant.
As well as access to the Worldwide kids' club and children's facilities, Ikos' Babewatch programme affords guests 30 minutes of complimentary babysitting on the beach so parents can enjoy some downtime whilst someone keeps an eye on the little ones.
The children's pool is perpetually heated to a toasty 29°C, keeping shrieks of shock to a minimum - and their very own 'splash area' features water squirting flowers and foam floors for maximum fun!
Whilst parents might come on holiday to do as little as possible, younger family members often don't - and that's fine. Table tennis, darts, live shows, board games, movies and beach volleyball are just some of the activities on offer to keep them entertained whether mum and dad want to join in or not.
Opt for a bungalow suite when travelling with the whole family. You'll be grateful for the privacy, and the kids will enjoy the space - what's more, the bathtub will be a very welcome addition when it comes to getting ready after a day in the pool!
