Doesn’t your heart just sing when your little kids love the hotel kids club?
Mine does absolutely.
It’s not that I don’t want to have fun with my kids, just that travelling solo with them 24/7 means that time together can be too much of a good thing.
A wee break from them, knowing they are very happy and well cared, for is just delicious.
And so it was during our recent stay at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai. My little Ms7, Minnie The Minx, insisted on going to Sinbads every day and was only lured away by trips to Wild Wadi Water Park.
Her twin Rusty Rocket sometimes said he’d stay with me, but every time we entered the kids club to drop her off he decided to stay as well.
Sinbad’s – The Kids Club – Facts and Figures
Sinbad’s is divided into three age groups:
2- 4 years – children can be booked in for one session a day
5 – 8 years
9 – 12 years
There’s also a teenagers’ club – see below.
Sinbad’s is open from 8am – 10pm every day
Parents must stay in the resort whilst their children are at Sinbad’s
A room babysitting service is available also – useful if you have children under two years old.
Sinbad’s has the following childcare ratios:
2-4 year group 1:4
5-8 years group 1:6
Activities: arts, crafts, games, water play, swimming, face painting, sand play, football and other sports.
No need to book in; just take the children along when you are ready.
The Hub – Teenagers’ Club at Jumeirah Beach Hotel
I was also travelling with my teenager boys aged 16 and 14. They spent heaps of time at The Hub, a club just for teens which is in the same building as the gym and spa. The Hubs is for teens aged 11 – 17 years/
They loved playing the drums and guitars that are in The Hub, chatting to the guys in charge, playing video games and generally hanging out. Cool!
NB In these shots, the kids clubs look pretty empty. In fact, they weren’t at all, but I make an effort not to photograph children other than my own in these situations.
Jumeirah Kids and Teenagers Clubs Overall
Our family would highly recommend the kids clubs at Jumeirah Beach Hotel. They were amongst the best we have seen and used. My four kids and teens hugely enjoyed attending and would return tomorrow. Me too!
See our previous post on the Wild Wadi Water Park too, it’s right alongside the hotel and hotel guests enjoy free entry.
Next up will be a post on the hotel in general.
In the meantime, how are the Sydney school holidays going for you?
And what’s your family’s favourite hotel ever?
