Looking for a holiday featuring sightseeing and sunshine in equal measures? Croatia is the perfect destination! Visit medieval cities, sail around the islands, wander the markets and chic boutiques looking for keepsakes and presents, or simply soak up the sun and relax by the pool or beach while the children play.
All inclusive” light” package with flights, all meals, children’s club and evening entertainment
With its traditional charm, medieval quaintness, and a stunning Adriatic coastline with more than 1,185 islands, islets and reefs, Croatia definitely lays stake to being one of the most beautiful parts of Europe. Despite the tragedy of the recent war, its charms remain largely intact; most of the tourist areas have been lovingly recreated . Combining a wealth of history, culture and unrivalled natural beauty, Croatia is a truly memorable destination and of course coupled with a comfortable hotel, great pools and entertainment, the children will be happy too!
The climate is Mediterranean along the Adriatic coast, meaning warm dry summers and mild winters, with 2,600 hours of sunlight on average yearly – it is one of the sunniest coastlines in Europe.
We’ll be staying on the Dubrovnik Riviera, a lovely location just a short 1 euro bus ride away from the mediaeval city of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik has enchanted many of the course of its history, George Bernard Shaw claimed “those who seek paradise on Earth should come to Dubrovnik and see Dubrovnik”, as well as, famously, describing it as “the pearl of the Adriatic”. Dubrovnik truly is a stunning city with its amazing Old Town, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979.
Dubrovnik is clearly special. The baroque buildings , pretty squares and cobbled streets are surrounded by a magnificent circle of city walls . The centre of the old town offers a wide variety of cafés and shops with outstanding monuments at either end. Churches, monasteries and museums ornamented with finely carved stone recall an eventful history and a vibrant artistic tradition. Beyond the city is a heavenly landscape of beaches, wooded peninsulas and a sea strewn with lush islands.
Croatia offers something for everyone. Sightseeing in Dubrovnik, mountain cable cars, island tours, an excursion to the beautiful Montenegro (remember the Daniel Craig James Bond movie?), visits to nearby towns and villages to experience the traditional Croatia, evening beach party…For the active there is also a good measure of quad bike safaris and water sports available.
The holiday will be accompanied by a Single With Kids coordinator with group events arranged throughout the break – holidaymakers are free to dip in and out of these as they wish.

Well away from busy roads and in a woodland setting, the location is great for children, the pool area and outside bar also enjoy lovely sea views. The hotel is beside a small pebble beach where you can relax and watch the cruise liners pass as they head for the Dubrovnik port or simply watch the sun set.
With the spotlight on sports, entertainment and non-stop fun in the sun for all ages, the hotel is a great choice for families and activity-seekers. There’s a range of activities on offer from aerobics to table tennis, swimming lessons to football. Water sports fans can also indulge in diving, sailing and water-skiing from the shores of the small Copacabana beach beside the hotel. Children will love the fun and creative activities at the mini club, the base for a full programme of games and competitions, while teens have their own cool diversions such as talent shows and discos.
Accommodation is in twin or triple rooms with views of green Mediterranean gardens. There are expansive terraces circling the large swimming pool, which, with gentle slopes and shallow areas is ideal for swimmers and non swimmers alike. The rooms all have a French balcony – see the gallery pictures for this.
The buffet style restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining, there’s also a snack bar beside the pool.

" A fantastic holiday in an idillic location. Like the majority of the group, this was our first time with SWK. We picked the right holiday - match the destination with the age of the kids, most in our group were around 9-12ish. All the kids got on great straight away. That made it so much easier for the adults to relax, and I think we all got on really well as a result. I thouroughly recommend this destination and if like me you looked at this for a couple of years trying to decide if you wanted to join the club - do it now!!! Our highlight was not a trip or a sight, it was that the kids and the adults all got on so well. "
" We had a fantastic holiday! We loved the hotel with its wonderful pool, helpful staff and variety of activities: Club Maro, tennis courts, football pitch, play area and so on. It was great to be so close to the beautiful old town of Dubrovnik, and - thanks to the co-ordinator - there was a perfect balance of relaxation and organised events. I had the youngest child on the trip, so I really appreciated Guy's and the other parents' support. The evenings at the poolside bar were lots of fun and it was a nice safe space for the older children to have some free range around the grounds! We loved all of it, but the boat trip was something really special. It was great fun and good to be with people who understand each other's situation. The kids and I have made new friends with whom we will stay in touch. It was stress-free with regards to organisation and I loved the choice of hotel and location. "
" We had a great time and would do it again. I played with my child in pool most of the day and then relaxed and had conversation with adults in the evening whilst my child played with her new friends. It was great. "
" All the anxieties about being a single parent on holiday are eliminated . It is flexible and friendly to meet all needs. More social interaction then I get in a year..be prepared "
" The mix of people was great we had such a laugh. Lovely hotel. Guy was excellent and a great organiser. Lots to do and my daughter made many friends and loved it. "
" We've had a fabulous time in Dubrovnik. Great hotel and resort and most of all a super group of parents and children. Guy has been the perfect host. Thanks everyone, we're sad to leave. "
" Winning formula. So much better than going on our own. "
" We've had a fabulous time and the holiday exceeded my expectations - we've made some really good friends and we've come home on a high - thank you very much. The fluorescent bags are a great idea "
" Fabulous holiday, great group and so much fun. Guy is a great coordinator and managed the group and activities very well. Another good SWK holiday for us. "
" Great trip and a really good group of people. We've been before with SWK and this holiday topped the list. Thanks very much to Guy for coordinating and keeping us sane and organised - but not over organised. "
" Having never been on a SWK holiday before I had no idea of what to expect. It was fantastic!!! Dubrovnik is amazing. The hotel, the views, the pool, the trips, Guy for organising them and the other guests all made it one of the best holidays I have been on. Seeing the children playing and running around together day and night was adorable. Being with other single parents was also cathartic. I expect to be back! "
" We had a fantastic week, with a lovely group of parents and kids. Our coordinator Guy was amazing and got just the right balance to help the group gel. We would definitely go on an SWK holiday again, though this one will be hard to beat. This was my first SWK holiday and I have absolutely loved it. What an amazing group of people - we bonded so well and had a great laugh. The kids have made some great friends and we will definitely be staying in touch. Thanks so much to Guy for being a coordinator extraordinaire and making our week so special. Roll on the next one! "
" The holiday was incredible with really cool people, a great hotel and stuff to do taking the stress off parents. Will definitely do it again. "
" It was very nice knowing that there was other English people there so you could make friends with people. I loved how we could choose what we do but there was always something to do every day. "
" Guy was a great coordinator and spent time with all of the group. The dynanics of the group worked well with a mix of male and female this year it was a good balance. I met some great people I hope to meet up with again in the future. My daughter loved it! "
" We had a wonderful holiday in Croatia this year. We had the right mix of people, especially men and women which was unusual. Will definitely be doing SWK again. "
" First SWK holiday and it was fab! We've laughed so much and made new friends. Fantastic in every respect. Great group of parents and kids. Guy was fantastic too. "
" Fantastic holiday, would highly recommend it. This has been our second SWK holiday and we didn't think it could be better than last year. However we had fantastic time. A great group of adults and children. We have had such a laugh. Guy has coordinated the group extremely well, with his little helpers! We will definitely be doing another of these holidays. "
" What a lovely place. First SWK holiday with a great group. Would visit Croatia again and would certainly go with SWK again. "
" I don't think I expected to enjoy it so much! Such a lovely bunch of people and well coordinated by Guy. Saturday night was definitely one to remember (but I won't tell any tales.....) Our first SWK holiday and I'm sure it won't be the last. I'd certainly recommend SWK holidays to any single parent and will likely be joining you next year. "
" We had a lovely time and it just what we needed. We were pleased with how we were
free to do as much or as least with the group and there was no pressure or hard sell on
activities etc. It was very comforting to be abroad but part of a group for support where
needed. The highlight? The group, my daughter being happy and Croatia. Beautiful! "
" Jo was a great coordinator, very entertaining, and liked very much by all. "
" Lovely area and perfect hotel for the kids - not too formal that you had to worry.
The highlight? Jack says it was the pool and the inflatables at the beach. For me it was
the trip into Dubrovnik and the walls. The coordinator Jo really did look after us. She was
always there to help when I needed it. "
" Dubrovnik is beautiful, weather was great too. My daughter enjoyed making new friends
and I enjoyed company of others "
" Lovely location, and safe hotel for kids. The highlight? 3 Island Trip and the beach at Sunj "
