Best Accomodation Tips on a Toddlers Vacation
bEST ACCOMODATION tips ON Atoddlers vacation
If you have kids, then you will know just how much time goes into planning a vacation.
Especially for those with smaller children; there is so much you need to anticipate before traveling with kids. The flight, the food, and the baby’s routine tend to be at the forefront of most parents’ minds. In many cases many hotels don't have the best accommodation for toddlers. Sharing a room, being at a noisy floor, among others might affect your family vacation.
These are some concerns and solutions that you might like to check when organizing a toddlers vacation.
1 - Routine
As any parent knows all too well, ROUTINE is key. Keeping your baby or young children in their routine as much as possible is of paramount importance.
Having to deal with a completely new set of surroundings can bring about its own set of challenges. Having to do that with tired, grumpy children who have not slept, or have stayed up too late makes things even harder.
Yes, keeping to your routine is probably one of the most important aspects of a family and toddlers vacation.
First of all, we recommend to keep consistent the eating and sleeping time in order to avoid any breakdown.
As you might now, toddlers tend to sleep between 11 to 14 hours per day, so it is really important to find the best times and accomodation for a good rest.
2 - Sleeping Arrangements
Family hotel rooms are often not as big as you would expect them to be.
The bedroom and the main living space are often merged together; the beds can sometimes be sleeper sofas, which adds to the cramped and awkward bedtimes. Adults do not get their ‘downtime’ and the children's sleep can be interrupted.
That is the reason why we suggest a timeshare rental, you have an entire property at your disposal. Having a living room, making nap time and bed time more manageable.
Kids can sleep in separate rooms, giving the adults the time and space they need to enjoy their evenings while their children get their much-needed rest, without being disturbed.
3 - Noise and Disturbances
If you stay in a hotel or complex, then you are most likely going to encounter the hotel entertainment, or to be more precise, the noise from the entertainment. Loud guests who might choose to walk past your room and shout or sing quite loudly.
There is always the risk of your little ones becoming unsettled or unable to sleep with this noise. The result of which; their routine is disturbed, or your ‘quiet’ time is eradicated from your day.
This will have a knock-on effect that spills into the following day too.
If you are visiting a beach destination, we recommend to rent a property with a balcony. The perfect spot to read a book after naps or chill while the baby is resting. An ideal area when planning a toddlers vacation.
4 - Meal Times
Wherever you choose to vacation, there is a strong likelihood that meal times will need to be planned in advance.
If you have a buffet-style arrangement in a hotel complex, this can turn into a logistical nightmare.
Taking turns to go up and get food, making sure everyone has all the items they need before being able to sit down and relax.
If you have table service, how can you be sure that there will be options to suit your family’s preferences each day?
With a timeshare rental, you can go shopping, store, prepare, and serve delicious and nutritious meals from the comfort of your own kitchen with ease.
Most timeshare rentals will include everything you need including cookware, cutlery, a blender, and let’s not forget the all-important dishwasher.
Mealtimes are easy, contained, and everyone can be kept content and fully-fed.
5 - Bath Times
Linking to the first point in this post, bath times are an essential part of any child’s routine. Not only will this relax and clean your little angels, but it also helps to relax them before bed.
Often in a hotel, you get one bathroom that must be shared between the family.
This can interrupt the essential routine, and it can often mean that the family is crammed into a small bathroom, with little space to maneuver.
Timeshare rentals and rentals offer that true home-from-home experience, often giving your family multiple bathrooms, and more pleasingly; lots of space!
Also, you should consider in taking with you the kid's favorite bath toy to make the experience more pleasent.
Hopefully, by now, you can see how much easier a toddlers vacation is in a timeshare rental. This is often a much better option than any hotel room because you can be completely reassured that when you get there, you have everything you need for your vacation on hand and close by.
The space and the facilities you need are all within easy reach.
After all, the most important part of any family vacation is making memories that will stay with you all for a lifetime. For more information on the best Time Share rentals in Mexico, the Caribbean and Hawaii check our website or take a look to our blog to find out more travel tips!
