Greek Island all-inclusive hotels for families

Kiani Beach Resort in Crete

We couldn’t have asked for a better family hotel in Crete for our first trip to the Greek Islands. Kiani Beach Resort is a 4 star all-inclusive resort geared towards kids. It’s less than an hour transfer from Chania Airport and is right on a blue flag beach.

As well as being able to take a dip in the sea and enjoy water sports right in front of the hotel, there are two swimming pools and two toddler splash pools.

Our girls loved the kids clubs and the evening entertainment. Plus, there is an excellent selection of rooms to accommodate families, and interconnecting apartments for larger family groups.

We had a great time exploring the Chania region in western Crete too. Here’s some of the things to do in Chania that we can recommend. And, if you are planning on hiring a car, here’s our guide to driving in Crete.

Cruises around the Greek Islands

We love cruising and have been to the Western Mediterranean, Europe and the Caribbean. Another destination we can highly recommend is the Eastern Mediterranean. Cruises to this area will inevitably visit the Greek Islands.

Cruises out of Venice* regularly stop in destinations like Katakolon, Santorini and Mykonos allowing you to get a taste of more than one island in the space of one or two weeks.

Greek Island villas for families

If you prefer holidaying at your own pace then a villa holiday in the Greek Isles could be the perfect answer. Even better if it comes with its own pool where you can hang out as a family and enjoy sundowners after the kids have gone to bed. 

Santorini villas overlooking the sea - Greek Island holidays has plenty of options for Greek Island holidays including villas by the beach, villas with hot tubs and ones that are perfect for babies and toddlers.
