Many of my travel partners have started putting out their Pre Black Friday specials.
I'm particularly interested in the pricing Transat has to from Vancouver to Cap Cana (Dominican Republic) and staying at Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana. These resorts have JUST opened and are already getting RAVE reviews. From amazing food, service, a fabulous beach, and brand new accommodations - these resorts are something to consider for sure.
The Ziva side is the family friendly part of the resort. You'll find kids clubs and entertainment along with a lazy river and waterpark (with very exciting looking waterslides). Right beside the Ziva is the Zilara side - which is adults only. Adults can use all of the amenities in both resorts. So you can act like a kid over at the waterpark, and then retreat to the Zilara side for kid-free peace and quiet.
What a perfect set up for a multi-generational trip. The grandma and grandpa can have their quiet retreat in Zilara, and meet up with their crazy grandkids over at the waterpark for the afternoon.
With the introductory pricing (brand new resorts often launch with pretty incredible prices while they get the kinks worked out) and the Black Friday pre-sales, along with the Thursday direct flights that Transat offers ... you might want to contact me quickly to see if this is the right fit for your family.
