 Finding hotels that are not only affordable but family-friendly is sometimes hard to come by, aren't they?. Cheaper hotels, you might not get the best child-friendly activities, or the 'best' family hotels are normally a bit more expensive so finding one that ticks all our boxes I thought I would share with you.


This holiday was last minute as our original holiday was cancelled due to high winds, so we were on the hunt for a holiday as close as possible before the summer holidays ended and we found a great deal for the TUI BLUE Ephesus in Kusadasi.

It is set between a beach and waterpark - perfect for families and is named one of the best child-friendly places with many activities for all ages.


As I said above, the resort is perfect for family holidays. The TUI BLUE Kids Club has something on most of the day, then the evening entertainment for the children, shows, sing-alongs, and prizes to be won.

As far as children go, this exceeded all of our expectations.

You also get access to the Aqua Fantasy Waterpark which is jam-packed with slides, chutes and flumes, so much to do there and we had free access for our whole stay :)


They have a kids club which is for 3-11 year olds which offers 2 hours of themed activities a day. All split up into different age brackets so the little ones can be little and the teens can be teens :)

Baby club is from newborn to 36 months and the fully trained staff are there to watch your little ones for 2 hours while you have that much-needed couple time.

The hangout is a spot where the big teenagers can relax and get away from their parents and little siblings. Age 12-15.


Another great TUI BLUE Ephesus focuses on is well-being. They have a healthy challenge throughout your stay where they encourage the younger ones to try new food and meal times and you get stickers for trying them out which you can put on your lanyard - a fanatic idea and one I was really impressed with.

    mindfulness classes for all the family, aqua aerobics, yoga for adults and children, and it's a great way to recuperate from all the holiday madness, holidays are fun but very full on, I loved that they had these added extras to take a step back.


Book some time to relax in the spa and get a face massage. Book in at the gym for a spin glass or do some weight training. Fully equipped gym for all.


While you are away, download the TUI BLUE APP which your rep will talk to you about. This is where you can book any classes and find out about absolutely everything on your holiday. Full daily plan every day from breakfast time to evening entertainment.

Mezz and I thought this was fantastic and you had everything at hand when you needed to know something.

A private beach and beach bar, all the iced coffee I could wish for :)


The food here is 10/10. They have a huge variety of everything. From chips, freshly made pizza, and pasta for the fussy ones, to fresh kebabs, delicious Turkish cuisine and desserts to die for.

Children's playground, crazy golf and lots of fun and laughter. If you are looking for a family hotel with it all, I highly recommend this one.
