Traveling with a large family (5 kids) Yikes!

Recommended Posts

Well ... we've always known that it's kind of a pain traveling with 5 kids but now we're really in for it! LOL


Ken and I have 5 kids (my 3 and his 2) and there are NO rooms (that we've found) that will accommodate all 7 of us (cuts off at 6) ... even for the very expensive villas with 2,600 sqft.


We have other family coming so as long as they stay the exact same days as us we can put them on their room ... but either way financially it's crazy.


You can't book kids only in a room (even if it's adjoining) so you have to split up the adults thus paying a single per per rate. As it is we can't even split us up and take 2 and 3 kids respectfully because you can only put 2 kids with 1 adult *sigh*


I know we'll get it worked out ... but it's another thing to "stress" about. LOL


Has anyone else traveled with kids to an all inclusive? Have you used their Kids Club? Have you ever hired a babysitter for night time?


Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! *SmiLes* Suzanne

Wow....I thought we were the only one's taking our kids! lol I have 2 and my FI has 2 as well. Luckily, we have both of our families going so it's not too much of a big deal for us. FI and I are staying 9 days, so the kids can't even travel with us. My MOH is taking my 2 kids when she goes, we had to book them in their room, however, they will stay with my parents once they arrive. FI's 2 kids are going and staying with his parents in their room. It's kinda a hassle shuffling the kids around, but it actually worked out pretty good for the one's travelling with them since they got more of a discount having 4 people in a room!

I hope that helps!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
