This contest requires more than just entering your name—we’re asking families to share details about their favorite hotels with kids (or just a favorite hotel period). The result is that for a contest where the prize is this huge, the chances of winning are fantastic!  You can also get additional entries by sharing a link to the Italy vacation giveaway page with your friends on Facebook and identifying the country and city in this photo on Ciao Bambino’s Facebook page.

  1. My favorite hotel for children isn’t really a hotel at all… At Samburu Intrepids in Kenya your room is a fabulous en suite canvas tent in the Maasai Mara. Children are in their element surrounded by wild spaces, wild animals and local Maasai to teach them to track animals, make things from plants and even shoot a bow and arrow. All those activities keep kids happy during afternoons while parents can have some down time between game viewing activities. Meal times can be arranged to suit your family. Overall this is a great bonding experience / adventure for families!

  2. My favorite hotel is “el Tamarindo” located in manzanillo Mexico, with 19 villas…. Great golf course with breath taking views, u don’t even have to get out of the hotel for activities they have everything there…. I don’t have kids and I think it’s more of adults place.

  3. I would love to go to Italy and live the second part of my life, where I can enjoy the beauty of the country, maybe find love, do my photography, create my art, cook, and finish my cookbook using the real ingredients I love. I’ve never been to Italy, only my heart has.

  4. we love to stay in the small b and b in switerland. we hiked village to village in the swiss alps with a 14 month old. Came across numerous playgrounds in places you would never image. All the b and b’s were wonderful with our small child

  5. My favorite place to stay with kids is the animal kingdom resort in disney world. You feel that you are in Africa because of the decor and grounds. You can get a room with a savanah room which is a view with african animals in your back yard. Now they are not right at your balcony but you can see some animals at a distance. You can also walk around the grounds and sit around fire pits. There are great restaurants with both adult and children food. Its a true experience!

  6. Our favorite place to stay with kids is anywhere our whole family can be together and be surrounded by wonderful things to do that please everyone. Sometimes that might be in San Francisco at the Omni where they cater to kids as you check in and everything you need is just waiting outside the doors. Or, it might be in Hawaii at the Beachtower where the beach is just across the street with waves just waiting for us to crash into them. Relaxing in Carmel and Monterey at the Portola Hotel and Spa makes us all very happy too with the parks, trails and beaches just waiting to be enjoyed. Famil time is importnat time! We hope to find many wonderful places in Italy to enjoy WITH KIDS soon.
