    I find Andrew Harper's reports to reflect fairly similar expectations of facility and service to my own. Their publication released their top-20 luxury family resorts list.

    Of the top 10, while I scratch my head at the Broadmoor (which felt more like 3*+/4*- when I was last there in [08]), my first hand experience at many of these properties is consistent with AH's. This list is a good starting point for someone thinking about planning a family holiday.

    While there's one Malaysian property, the list is overwhelmingly North American (ex-Canada) oriented. I'd suggest thinking of this more as a "US and nearby countries (ex-Canada)" list.

    Hopefully this is helpful for people planning a family holiday.

    1. The Cloister Sea Island, Georgia
    2. The Sanctuary Kiawah Island, South Carolina
    3. The Broadmoor Colorado Springs, Colorado
    4. The Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia

    12. The Breakers Palm Beach Florida

    Has anyone done a similar report on city hotels? Looking for a good family hotel in London close to the sights.
