Finding the the right place to stay when you’re traveling with kids isn’t always easy. Not all hotels are as kid-friendly as others, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on luxury and comfort for accommodations to meet the needs of your youngest family members. A new report names the best hotels for kids that the entire family will love.

Hideaway Report, which uses anonymous travelers to report on one-of-a-kind destinations around the world, just released its 2018 Member’s Choice Awards for the best accommodations. Here are Hideaway Report’s top three choices for best hotels for kids.

Mauna Key Beach Hotel

Located on the Kohala Coast in Hawaii, Mauna Key Beach Hotel offers so much more than a basic kids club to keep kids entertained. Lei making and shell hunting are just a couple of the activities kids five to 12 can enjoy during a half or full-day program while parents kick back for some R&R. The whole family will get swept away hiking to lava tubes and partaking in moonlight manta ray viewing.

The Resort At Paws Up

If your family’s idea of a vacation is less about relaxing on the beach and more about excitement and adventure, then pack your bags for Greenough, Montana. With 37,000 acres filled with over 100 miles of trails and riverfront land, your family can experience a truly wild adventure at the Resort at Paws Up.

Kayaking, horseback riding, fishing and mountain biking are just a few of the activities you’ll enjoy. Kids can also spend some time learning about wildlife and nature through the Kids Corps of Discovery program. You can even capture all the amazing adventures with a private family photography workshop.

The Cloister at Sea Island

This 10,000-acre estate located in Sea Island, Georgia features five miles of private beach where families can go fishing, sailing, kayaking and paddle boarding in addition to simply splashing in the water. Out of the water you can also try archery, tennis and horseback riding among other activities at The Cloister at Sea Island.

The resort is also home to seven restaurants, so you know you’ll find something for even the pickiest of eaters.
