There’s a perfect way for any family to visit Greece – whatever age the kids are. Idyllic coastline, delicious food, fun and adventure combine to make a family holiday in Greece something very special. Choose from one of Scott Dunn’s beautiful family resorts in Greece and relax into a holiday designed especially for you.
1/3 Daios Cove, Crete
This visually striking five-star resort is built into the local granite, and boasts its own private sandy cove. Choose from luxury suites, villas with private pools, or – new this year – roomy family suites.
A buggy and funicular service make getting around the resort easy, so you’ll have plenty of time for exploring the infinity pool – which is heated all season to 25C – tennis court, spa and restaurants. At the Explorers kids’ club, little little ones are welcomed from just four months old, and enjoy creative fun in the club, as well as adventures around the resort. Daois Cove has been designed specifically with tots in mind, and with pool-fencing, stairgates and kids’ menus at its restaurants, mums and dads can relax.
Price: Approx. £1,500 per person for 7 nights based on a family of 2 adults and one child sharing a one bedroom suite on a half board basis with private transfers – staying in high season

2/3 Eagles Palace, Halkidiki
Nestled on the unspoilt Aegean coast, this intimate and traditionally run hotel is perfect for families looking for an authentic Greek experience. Life at Eagles Palace revolves around the golden sandy beach, which slopes gently into turquoise waters. Enjoy a sailing lesson or explore the nearby island of Ammouliani by chartering a motorboat or taking a kayak.
Kids aged five to 13 can join the Aqua Explorers club, a six-day watersports programme that introduces them to paddleboarding, sailing, windsurfing and more. This year, discover the sugary soft sands, shallow waters and bays and coves of Greece, and find out why families have been trusting Scott Dunn to create perfect family holidays for 30 years.
Price: Approx. £2,000 per person for 7 nights based on a family of 4 staying in sea front interconnecting junior suites on bed and breakfast basis and with shuttle transfers – staying in high season

3/3 Costa Navarino, Peloponnese, Mainland Greece
From this summer, you’ll have two hotels to choose from at Costa Navarino – the award-winning The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, and the family-oriented The Westin Resort Costa Navarino. The pair share facilities including the Agora, which is an area based on the Ancient Greek tradition of a meeting place and is packed with restaurants, cafes and shops.
The resort is set on an idyllic stretch of Peloponnese coastline, where turtles come to lay their eggs, surrounded by mountains, olive groves and vineyards. If you and the kids can prise yourselves from the beach, exciting activities and watersports await.
Are your kids too old for the kids’ club, but not quite old enough to be left to their own devices? This is where Scott Dunn’s Crew programme comes in. New for 2016, Crew has been especially designed for older kids keen to take time away from Mum and Dad, who also want to have fun with friends their own age. There’s no regimented timetable, no base camp. Instead, kids will find an awesome menu of adventure activities, which they’ll enjoy with their Scott Dunn Crew leader. Designed specifically not to be a kids’ club, Crew is full of seriously cool things to try, like scuba diving, stand-up paddleboarding, go-karting and wake boarding.
Price: Approx. £1,500 per person for 7 nights based on a family of 4 staying in a Family Suite on a half board basis including transfers – staying in high season
