          Miramare is a partial ocean view with a queen size bed & Sorrento has no view but a king size bed. Both beautiful suites.

          My husband and I are considering visiting Paradisus La Perla as our family vacation next year and have a few questions regarding rooms and activities for small children. Our son will be 3 when we visit and he is a very active 3 year old. What amenities/facilities do you offer for little ones and their families? We are considering the Family Concierge service, what extra amenities/facilities does this offer over regular room types? Are there snack and meal options catered to little ones available?
