For Children

What’s nearby? Sun Gardens is eight miles from Dubrovnik’s Old Town, which you can get to by boat or bus*. It’s also just across the water from the Elafiti Islands, and a boat cruise* is a great way to explore them. Lokrum Island is the closest to Dubrovnik’s Old Town, and has some lovely secluded beaches.

Tried and tested The Marco Polo Kids’ Club runs throughout the summer holidays for children aged from nine months all the way up to 18 years. Provision for some of the age groups stretches into May half-term, too. We also love the hotel’s week-long Sports Academies, which cost extra. There’s everything from football and tennis to basketball and water polo, as well as a multisports option*.

The sleeping arrangements The Two-Bedroom Residence Seaview rooms are ideal for families. Modern and bright, they have two separate bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, a separate dining area, and a kitchenette that’s handy for preparing quick snacks and drinks. Our favourite part, though, is the private terrace, which opens up incredible views of the Adriatic Sea.
