Big News: Welcome to the NEW Ciao Bambino!

If you’ve used Ciao Bambino to plan a family vacation before, welcome back! If you are visiting us for the first time, we’re thrilled you’ve joined our community of traveling families.

The old needed a refresh so we’ve been busy rebuilding a new and improved site from scratch over the past six months. It’s been quite a project, but we love the result and think you will too!

Ciao Bambino 2.0: What’s New

My Trip Planner

My Trip Planner will be your new Ciao Bambino best friend. We’ve added a bookmarking feature to the site where now you can save any articles or CB! Hotel Collection reviews of interest to a personal trip planning page for easy access and sharing.

Search + You Shall Find

One of the biggest  changes on the site is our site-wide search box that allows you to search across ALL of our content (CB! Hotel Collection reviews and Editorial). Our amazing global information and insight is now much easier to find and access!

Destination-Focused Landing Pages

You can use our Quick Menus to pull up all of our content for a given destination. Even destinations that are packed with hotel reviews and articles are a snap to sift through.

Create A Custom Hotel Results List in Seconds

The CB! Hotel Collection — our hand-selected, curated guide to the best hotels in the world for families — has super cool filter functionality where you can refine your results based on your kids’ ages, must-have amenities like kitchens, the standard/price point, and location.

One-Page Hotel Reviews Highlight Essentials

Gone are the days where you need to click 10 different places to determine if a hotel is a good fit. Our review information is now on one-page and includes essential details that can be digested in five-minutes or less. Take action by bookmarking the hotel to My Trip Planner, or using our Check Availability button to get best pricing and availability information.

For many hotels, we’ve added a connection to our new partner and the hotel’s own reservation system page so you can get immediate access to best pricing and booking options if you don’t want to wait for an email response.

Travel Tips Galore

Families want travel tips (that’s why you are all here, right?!). We’ve made finding tips a snap with Quick Menus on our Editorial pages. We also have a dedicated Travel Tips homepage for essential basics like Traveling with Babies, Traveling with Toddlers, Trip Planning Tips and more.

Plan The Best Family Vacation Ever, Expert Help is Here!

Last but certainly not least, we have a new dedicated Family Vacation Consultant team who is ready to help you plan the best family vacation ever. We provide free hotel booking support for properties inside and outside of our portfolio. If you want more comprehensive assistance developing a multi-stop itinerary and planning activities, we’re offering a fee-based service to help. Head to My Trip Planner for more details and/or to request assistance from an expert.

Truth be told, everything about the site is new so I could go on and on, but these are the biggies! We have more exceptional features coming soon that didn’t make the launch so stay tuned for those. In the meantime, if you see something odd let us know and we’d love feedback on likes and dislikes if you feel like sharing. Email us on info{at}
