A stunning five-star family hotel on the Dalmatian coast brimming with child-friendly facilities and amenities as well as a wonderful spa, Sun Gardens is a top choice for a luxury family holiday in Croatia. The city of Dubrovnik is just a short drive or ferry ride away, so airport transfers take no time at all – ideal when travelling with young children.

But the big draw for families is the sporting academies, with summer camps for ages 7-15 years in football, swimming, tennis, basketball and even water polo (a national sport) – or a mixture of all. There's also a sports complex for those looking for an active family holiday, plus watersports on the private pebble beach.

There's a kids' club (mainly peak season) for ages 3-11 years, plus a teen hideout for older kids and a babysitting service if you want some adult-only time of an evening – perhaps a romantic meal at one of the on-site restaurants. Kids get their choice of where to dine, but most head straight for the patîsserie with its fantastic ice-cream bar.

Accommodation ranges from modern self-catering residences (options sleeping up to seven make this a great choice for large families or for holidays with grandparents) to contemporary hotel bedrooms, all designed with families in mind and many with a balcony and to-die-for sea views. There are also VIP rooms with some fantastic extras to make your stay even more special.
