Famiy Vacation at Christmas

Our family would like to go somewhere at Christmas for one week leaving Dec. 26 or 27th. There would be a total of 9 people- 2 adults, 2 adults and a toddler & 4 year old, and 2 adults and a toddler.

We are on a tight budget- hopefully not greater than $1500/adult. Some of us would travel out of Toronto and some out of Calgary so we need to manage to coordinate the travel dates.

We have been looking at all inclusive resorts. I did look at a few rental properties but the flight costs were very high so I thin we need the flight included in the trip. Are there any that have 3-bedroom cottages/villas and if so would they be cheaper? When should we book to ensure we get a booking but also maximize our money?

We would like a beach for the kids to play in the sand, a family friendly resort, and perhaps some excursion options that are not water activities. Being close to a village or town would be nice.

Tough to find many options at Xmas when you have a limited budget - one place i would recommend you look at would be Sirenis - it's a it bit of a longer drive from the airport but is good hotel for the price and family friendly.

Not close to a village or town though - but nothing in PC really is.

I agree that is a tough week. It is high season so that bugget is tight. Could you do the week prior to Christmas. I have priced our trip both ways and it was much cheaper to go the week before.

Why don't you do your research and narrow it down to a few resorts that are in your price range, and then throw those by us - I think it will be easier for us to respond.

Being close to a village or town in PC is not really possible - PC just isn't set up as such. Rather PC is designed with a ton of mega resorts that are all pretty isolated from any towns or villages to speak of......and so to compensate, these resorts pretty much offer anything and everything that you will need in terms of activities, restaurant options, etc.
