          Miramare is a partial ocean view with a queen size bed & Sorrento has no view but a king size bed. Both beautiful suites.

          My husband and I are considering visiting Paradisus La Perla as our family vacation next year and have a few questions regarding rooms and activities for small children. Our son will be 3 when we visit and he is a very active 3 year old. What amenities/facilities do you offer for little ones and their families? We are considering the Family Concierge service, what extra amenities/facilities does this offer over regular room types? Are there snack and meal options catered to little ones available? Thank you in advance for any information you can provide. Regards, Christi
