On a luxury family holiday, a hotel suite with a private pool buys you time. You’ll gain precious time every morning as the children head for the water rather than for you; with snorkels and inflatables they’ll splash around to their hearts’ content. And when the heat is on, with younger children or toddlers, you’ve got all the time in the world for a quick cooling dip in and out of the pool, whenever you want and with every comfort to hand. In fact for a truly relaxing family holiday, a private pool is no luxury, it’s essential, especially when time is of the essence.
