Last Minute Family Holidays: The Good, The Great And The Grand

Whether you jet off to South Beach, cruise to the Caribbean or schedule last minute holidays in a chalet in Spain, enjoying family holidays together can bring people closer than anything else can. Children grow up much too fast, so it’s important for parents to set aside quality time to spend with them. Exploring the world’s best vacation destinations together is a great way to do it.

South Beach is a popular vacation destination. First head to Collins Avenue to see the colorful Art Deco buildings and the other amazing South Beach landmarks. Next sample the spicy ethnic cooking and watch the surfers and beautiful people as they frolic in the warm waters and milk white sands. As the sun sets visit Washington Avenue where people party like rock stars. Finally, relax at your hotel. The right hotel can take your family holidays to another level. The Ritz-Carlton South Beach with their ocean front location, suites mimicking a yacht’s stateroom, upscale dining and elevated pool with private cabanas are an experience your family will never forget. The Setai, W South Beach and the Mandarin Oriental Miami also offer luxury, fantastic ocean views and top quality amenities.

The tropical climate, excellent beaches, warm waters, brilliant sunshine and cool Trade Winds draw many people looking for unique family holidays to the Caribbean. For last minute holidays Jamaica is ideal. The Half Moon A Rock Resort in Montego Bay offers villa holidays on their 400 acre landscaped beachfront grounds. Each villa has a pool and private staff. You can explore the beach, swim in their exclusive natural Dolphin Lagoon, play golf or tennis and Jet Ski, water ski, and parasail to your hearts content. The experience at Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Moon Dance Villas in Negril and Sandals Royal Plantation will also leave the whole family saying: ‘Jamaica, Jamaica!’

There is no better place for family holidays than Spain. In this land bordering the Mediterranean Sea you can relax in the lap of luxury at places like the Hotel Arts Barcelona, Barceló Sancti Petri Spa Resort in Cadiz, The Westin Palace Madrid and the Gran Hotel la Perla in Pamplona. All of these feature furniture, food and fun fit for a king. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, the service is superb and the culture, climate and character of the inhabitants will make you wish your family holidays never had to end.
