Sri Lanka with young family

We have never travelled here before and having read about the beautiful scenery etc really would like to try. My main concern is we have 2 young children and although we are probably happy to get a nice beach hotel, travelling in April to enjoy the beach and pool etc, it would be quite nice to do some sightseeing. How easy would this be to get around? What can we expect from the hotels and the service etc? Are there any hotels with children facilities- play areas - etc which may be better for families?

Thank you

Hi there,

Check some hotel reviews to see whether they have a kids club and a play area - some of the more upmarket beach resorts do have one. And for the tour just make sure you limit your distances (e.g. not more than 4 hours on the road per day) and pick hotels with a pool - unless you're in the coldest part of the hills of course.

All the best,

By the way, how old are the children?

Hello there,

We travelled to Sri lanka for 3 weeks in 2011 with a 3 and 6 year old. We had a tour of the island with a great driver (PM for his details if you like). Either side of this we had a 5 bedroom villa in a small village on the coast for a superb £300 a week, rented from an English couple who live on site in semi-retirement.

I see you live local to us (we are in Consett), so feel free to get in touch I'd be happy to share our experiences if you'd like. It was an amazing trip and one we'd love to revisit again.

Ian
