Family resort

Any families just back from Phuket with real little ones?

Mine are 1 and 3 and l want somewhere special to meet up with my partners family.

Cleanliness is paramount to me, also safety.

Want a little luxury but dont want to pay silly prices for food and drink, so a little value for money wont go astray.

On the beach, beautiful pool, kids club..

Am l asking too much??

Thanks for your help!!

Have a look at the Patong Merlin in Patong Beach or the Merlin Beach Resort.

The kids club was limited but they may have upgraded since we were there last year. The resort itself is lovely and has a really shallow pool which is ideal. There are also three larger pools and a little playground. I liked the rooms to as there were fly screens on the sliding door which was nice for a little fresh air - even though there was airconditioning, sometimes it was nice to turn it off. Phuket is such a family friendly place. Eating out is easy too - most restaurants cater for all tastes. We were able to eat lots of yummy Thai and our kids could choose very standard food in the same restaurant such as chicken & chips or pizza. Travel with kids to we also found that there were chemists who could help with any concerns we had and were very good in dealing with us. The other great thing I found was to take a portable DVD player - our kids are older but it was a great chance for them to relax and enjoy some of the DVD's they bought - gave us a bit of time out too. Enjoy

The Holiday Inn is very family friendly and also has a kids club.

Its a little world all of its own.
