Mark's verdict:

With its turquoise shallows and emerald isles, the Dalmation Coast of Croatia is ideal for kayaking - one of our favourite holiday activities. But you don’t have to look far to find other family-friendly adventures, from scaling the walls of Dubrovnik’s Old Town and exploring Plitvice Lakes National Park to sailing in the Adriatic.

Completely Croatia says

We are passionate about Croatia and use our in-depth knowledge and experience to find the best choice of hotels and apartments in this diverse country.

  • family-friendly hotels
  • kids clubs
  • sailing option

Here are a few examples of our family favourites.

The newly refurbished four-star-plus Hotel Lafodia, on the traffic-free island of Lopud off the Dubrovnik coast, has a children’s club, interconnecting rooms and family rooms, all with sea view. A sandy beach can be found close by as well. With half board, it is ideal for a family holiday, especially for those with younger children.

For those with older children, how about combining an adventure trip with some R&R on the coast for a real flavour of Croatia’s diversity. One of our top sellers is the Plitvice Lakes Adventure, combined with a stay on the island of Brac, where the Villa Adriatica has newly converted adjoining family rooms.

Finally, there’s a great option in the beautiful bay of Lapad, close to Dubrovnik itself – the newly-refurbished and family-friendly and keenly-priced Hotel Kompas which has a lovely pool area and live entertainment. It’s located just steps from the beach and a number of charming bars and restaurants. .
