The first hotel in our list of family-friendly hotels on Vlieland is Vlierijck. The hotel is located in Vlieland’s only village, which is Oost-Vlieland. This is where 95% of the island’s 1,200 residents live, and this is also where most of the catering establishments can be found. From the boat from Vlieland, you can walk to the hotel in a few minutes.
What makes the hotel so family-friendly is that in the hotel there is a playroom for the kids with a table tennis table and several pieces of playground equipment. In addition, the hotel has a small indoor pool where kids can go when the weather is not as good outside. The hotel also offers different types of apartments suitable for families of four.
These apartments are spacious with two separate bedrooms and are at least 75m2 in size. You also have a living room and a bathroom with a bathtub here, and it is also possible to cook for yourself in the apartments. By the way, the hotel also has its own restaurant, where you can go for a snack and a drink.

The hotel receives an 8.5 overall rating from more than 990 guest reviews. Families with kids rate the hotel a 9.4 overall. More than 530 families with kids have rated the hotel, so that’s a very high score from so many reviews. We have read the various reviews of the families and based on them we list several positive and negative points of the hotel.
Positives Vlierijck: the positives mentioned by many families with kids are the location, the friendly staff, the facilities available for kids and the spacious apartments that are fully equipped.
Negative points Vlierijck: few negative points are mentioned multiple times by families with kids (it’s almost impossible with these high scores). However, some families with kids did indicate that they did not like the price-quality ratio of the breakfast. They thought it was quite expensive. Of course, you can easily overcome this by preparing your own breakfast in your apartment.
