The Best Cyber Monday Hotel Deals For Families
Hotels have gotten in on the Black Friday and Cyber Monday mania in a major way this year, with many brands offering reduced rates across large swaths of their portfolios. But as any parent will tell attest, a discounted room will only get you so far if the property — or destination, for that matter — doesn't feel especially right for kids.
With that in mind, here are the best family-friendly Cyber Monday deals that promise fun for the whole clan. Many of them are good for today (Monday, Nov. 27) only, so be sure to jump quickly. Then sit back, relax and commend yourself for your stupendous ability to plan Spring Break 2018 way ahead of schedule.

Why Everyone Will Love It: Located just a short 25-minute flight from Turks and Caicos’ main island of Providenciales, this resort is a great pick for big kids who want to snorkel, paddle-board and kite-boarding. Like the rest of Turks, the place to be is in the water with a mask strapped to your face, and the reef here — the third largest in the world — doesn’t disappoint.
The Deal: Get 60% off the best available rate. (Rates from $290/night.) Travel dates from Jan. 2 to March 31, 2018. Includes daily breakfast in the Great House Restaurant and round-trip flight from Providenciales International Airport (PLS) to South Caicos International Airport (XSC). Minimum four-night stay.

The Deal: Book between Nov. 27 and 30 and save up to 25% on rooms and up to 50% on a second room for kids 18 and younger. Travel good until Nov 20, 2018.
