Hi just booking 10 nights in July for our family of 2 adults, 2 teenage girls (ages 15 & 17) and 3 year old boy (!) we will stay 5 nights at Sofitel and then 5 nights at Mana.
I stayed at Mana about 8 years ago with just hubby & I (no kids) so are familiar with the pros and cons (average food but amazing in every other way) and remembered thinking the ocean view bures were the way to go if there was ever a next
Options are Oceanfront Suite which has a good configuration but a bit far from the pool (3 year olds favourite thing) or 2x Ocean View Bures (interconnecting) which will be a bit more expensive but like the idea of being closer to pool and stpping off the deck onto the beach (and would prefer standalone rather than hotel block style) the girls are self sufficient so having them next door as opposed to one unit to share is no issue (they need the bathroom space!)
Also thoughts on meal plan? Like the idea of mixing up the options for dining: south/north/backpacker and not sure if a meal plan will facilitate.
Also, was the kids club suitable for a 3 year old or do they need to be older?
Many thanks in advance!
