The Bare Necessities
A family-friendly resort shouldn't overlook the little things. Without them, you're looking at major-league hassles. Cribs should be readily available for little ones, and an infant tub or convenient changing areas are an added bonus. Strollers are another must, but the resort may even be willing to lend you toys and rain gear. And it's great to have different-sized bikes available.
When it comes to keeping clean, nobody wants to do laundry on vacation, but a washer/dryer unit in your suite can make life with small kids a whole lot easier. And it means you can pack fewer clothes -- leaving more suitcase space for souvenirs!
