Getaway deals for families


Summer holidaymakers can take advantage of fabulous getaway packages at Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resorts in the Middle East, and families are top of the list for extra benefits.

Special weekend room rates bookable all year round through the Weekender Plus programme are on offer all week long until September 15.

Boosting the Crowne Plaza family appeal, children can share their parents' room for no extra charge, while breakfast each morning is free for all the family. Lunch and dinner is also free for children at participating hotels.

The Crowne Plaza Beirut, opening this month, joins other Crowne Plaza properties in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, as well as Morocco, in offering the special Weekender Plus summer rates.

The most popular summer getaway venues will include the spectacular Crowne Plaza Resort Sharm El Sheikh, on Egypt's Red Sea coast, and the Crowne Plaza Resort Petra, within walking distance of Jordan's "rose red city as old as time" and its remarkable ancient temples and monuments.

Subject to bookings, guests can take advantage of 4pm late check-out times to extend their last day for shopping or sightseeing, or to relax and enjoy a superb range of Crowne Plaza sport and leisure facilities.
