Planning an international trip is a lot of work. Planning an international trip for the whole family? It's like taking on a new full-time job. There are so many more factors to consider when kids get involved, and all of them require hours of endless research to make sure you are spending your money in a place that has everything you will need for your trip.

First, you need to decide what kind of trip you want to take. Do you want to relax, do lots of fun activities or a little bit of both? Do you want some time away from your kids? How much time do you want to spend at the hotel? Does the hotel need to have restaurant options on-site, or do you want to venture out into town for all your meals? Will you need to rent a car? Once you have these questions answered, you can start looking for the perfect accommodations. 

To make your next trip a little less stressful, we've put together a list of some of the best international resorts that offer everything a family needs for a vacation.
