Hotel Almere with swimming pool
Many families with kids are looking for a hotel with a pool during a city break. Unfortunately, you don’t have a hotel in Almere with a pool where they also offer family rooms for families of four. In that regard, the best thing to do then is to look for a hotel in Amsterdam, where of course they do have a wide choice of hotels with family rooms with swimming pools.
For example, you can then go for an indoor pool at Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam, which is about a half-hour drive from the center of Almere. If you are looking for a hotel with an outdoor pool in the summer months, the Westcord Art Hotel Amsterdam may be an option for you.
As we mentioned above, there are not that many children’s hotels in Almere that offer family rooms for families with kids. Of course, there are still some hotels in Almere, but then you have to book two rooms for your family, for example. If you are a family of three then there are some other options.
