My family (3 kids under 6) stayed here at the Family Deluxe villa and were quite pleased. I've never been to Chiang Mai, so didn't know what to expect, but it's really "touristy" and while probably great for backpackers, it doesn't have enough "open space" for kids to wander. This hotel does. It has two small pools, with shallow areas for little kids, a playground that I wouldn't have thought would work, but did ---and a nice bit of green area that is a rice patty, snail breeding ground, chicken hangout..and it works. The team here is great. The area is a little outside the city (20 minutes from airport and 20 mins to 1 hr from center city, depending on time of day). Would probably rent a car next time from airport, but if you are into street and 'local' foods, this place is in a 'residential' area with small shanties and restaurants to find all the khao soi, ginger and fruit integrated foods. If we come back to Chiang Mia, we would all stay here. Much respect to their manager (Kobe?), Ms. Nat (one of the owners) and all the team trying to make this a sweet place for families (of which there were many from all over the world).
