Table of contents
1. Hotel Nes
The first hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels on Ameland is Hotel Nes, and this hotel is also (how could it be otherwise) located in the village of Nes. Nes is the largest village on Ameland with 1,200 inhabitants and also one of the busiest places on Ameland. Nes is fairly central on the island, so biking will get you to most places on the island in no time. We ourselves cycled all around the island in one day, so from Nes you can reach most places by bike within an hour.
The beach is about 700 meters from the hotel, so from the hotel you can easily walk to the beach with the family. The hotel offers several family rooms for families of three and four. The family studio for four is slightly larger than 30m2 and has a double bed for the parents and two single beds for the kids. There is also a bathroom in the room.
In the morning, the hotel serves breakfast to its guests. From the port where the ferry departs, it is possible to walk to the hotel. It is also possible to park your car for free at the hotel if you take it to Ameland. We had parked the car ourselves near the port of Holwerd (departure point of boat to Ameland).

Hotel Ameland with swimming pool
On Ameland (partly due to the wind) it is not always warm and then it can be very cold to swim in the sea with kids. An indoor pool can be a godsend then. As we mentioned earlier in this list of family-friendly hotels on Ameland, the Westcord hotel Noordsee has an indoor pool where you can take your kids.
There is another hotel on Ameland with a swimming pool and although its overall score does fall short of the family hotels on Ameland discussed above, we still discuss the hotel below.
