Our experience traveling with our twins has shown us that the 4 of us have a much better time when we stay in a hotel with even the simplest playground. Kids love spending time there playing, getting stronger, relaxing, having fun. At the same time, we have some well needed time for ourselves, even if that means checking our phones, preparing snacks, sharing time to have a shower or just lay down and stare at the ceiling. So, we have decided that a playground is a big plus when picking accommodation. The below family stays are literally scattered throughout Greece, but they all have some things in common: a swing or a hoot, for kids to enjoy at and parents to relax some.
Rivari Hotel, Santorini
Just 5 minutes walk away from the famous Kamari beach at the oh so unique island of Santorini, lies this family friendly hotel, featuring spacious family rooms, suites or maisonettes. It also has a library, kids corner at the swimming pool, kids menu, cots, high chairs, toys and a playground! Because this is what kids will appreciate more, right?
Daphne’s Club Hotel Apartment, Corinth
Daphne’s Club, located right on Sykia beach in Corinth, about an hour away from Greece, is well known among baby parents in Greece, as it is the first baby friendly hotel so near the capital. With 11 family apartments all with a fully equipped kitchen, baby proofing, a bathtub and a changing table (upon request), half board options and full vegan menu, toys, books, bicycles and a kids corner, well of course there is also a playground, right?
Ninemia Stay & Play, Karpenissi
Ninemia Stay & Play in Karpenissi not only has a playground, it also features a trampoline, zip line, kids bicycles and scooters, play area in the cafe, play corners in every apartment and a whole theme park, so it is a whole category on its own!

Unique stay in the heart of Mani that offers the impossible: breakfast and a playground and accommodation in spacious stunning fully equipped apartments, some being in a restored traditional Maniot tower dating back to 1810!
Chamaloni Guesthouses, Messinia
Sea views, vegan farm to table meals and comfortable accommodation even for larger families, in fully equipped traditional cottages. But this is just half of what Chamaloni Guesthouses actually offer, as the farm, the activities, the yoga sessions, the kids bikes, the toys and of course the playground make it an unforgetable experience on its own!
Paros Agnanti Hotel, Paros Island
Paros Agnanti Hotel is a stylish boutique hotel right on Krios beach, near Paroikia Town on Paros island. This luxurious cycladic style hotel is an adults and kids paradise, as it compines culinary experiences, private pools and cool cocktails, with kids amenities, among which is of course a playground. Win win!
