We did take 2 excursions outside the hotel resort but other than that we stayed put and had a great time.
Our resort Hotel had 3 large swimming pools and a private beach.
The kids really enjoyed having the slides and we spent almost all of our pool time near these slides:)
The beach, while not the sandy haven we were hoping for it provided the kids with lots of adventures and explorations!
Swimming in the Ocean and seeing the fish was one of Princess's favorite activities, while Little Man preferred the pool with the slides.
This is what I spent my time doing and I did not once pick up a home schooling book, or any school related activity for a whole week!
My husband and I took turns napping by the pool
Since we were at an all inclusive resort (first one we have ever stayed at) there were tons of activities adults and children could participate in, here are a few we indulged in.
Hubby and Princess playing water polo. They both enjoyed it and played several times.
Jet skiing at the beach. First time for everyone to do this!
Every evening there was a children's disco and then a night time show, my favorite was the Greek night when there were Greek folk dancers there along with a band.
Children dancing, music was in English, Italian, Spanish, French, German. You haven't lived until you have heard the Chicken song sung in French and the Macarena sung in Italian:)!
There was even a children's club that my children went too a few times on their own when they wanted a break from the pool.
So it was a successful holiday! Has this changed us from our usual holiday travels, I have to honestly say NO!. I missed going to the museums, I missed touring the island and felt I left Rhodes not really getting to see the Greek culture and people. Which is something I love to experience. While I loved the holiday I think we need to figured out a way to balance relaxation with real life experiences too. But I will say this opened my eyes to what a truly relaxing holiday is:)!
Next post will be on our excursion to Lindos and the Acropolis!
