The choice between an adults-only hotel and one that’s family-friendly depends on what type of vacation you’d prefer. Dreaming of a quiet and romantic getaway without children? An adults-only hotel is your best bet. If you're up for a kid-led adventure hotels with a family-friendly concept are a great choice. Both options offer unique experiences and amenities tailored-made to ensure an ideal escape.

Grown-up and glamorous

  • Atmosphere: Adults-only hotels are designed to provide a calmer and more relaxing environment. This is perfect for couples or groups of adults who want to escape the family hustle and bustle.
  • Services and facilities: These hotels – like the Raga Side in Turkey – often offer services and facilities that are specially tailored for adults, including wellness centers, romantic dinners, nightly entertainment, and other specialized activities.
  • Peace and quiet: Without children present, these hotels are more likely to have calmer and quieter atmospheres.
  • Location: Adults-only hotels are often located in more exclusive locations that are more suitable for adults, such as secluded beaches or city centers.

TIP: The stylish Sette Serenity, an adults-only hotel, in Alanya, Turkey, offers an a la carte concept, drinks delivered to the sunbed on the beach as well as a luxurious and especially quiet environment.

Family fun adventure

  • Family atmosphere: These hotels are designed to be family-friendly, offering a variety of activities for all age groups.
  • Services for children: They typically offer special services such as children's clubs, animation programs, playgrounds, and pools for children.
  • Amenities for families: Family rooms, special dining options for kids, and babysitting services to let parents enjoy some alone time.
  • Location: These hotels are often located in areas that are attractive to families like spots near beaches, theme parks, or cultural attractions.

TIP: Eftalia Blue a new Eftalia brand hotel is situated by a giant water park on the beach in Alanya, Turkey, with unlimited activities for children of all ages and great food. Marvida Family Eco in Side, Turkey, is another family-friendly hotel with a waterpark.
