Family Vacation Critic has released its second annual Favorite Hotel Awards just in time for summer.

The list of more than 500 family-approved hotels spans 15 regions across the world, including 10 within the U.S. In addition to having received stellar reviews from families, the award-winning properties have been experienced firsthand by Family Vacation Critic's team of experts.

In fact, that's part of the criteria.

In order to earn the designation of a Family Vacation Critic Favorite, the hotel must have been visited by a Family Vacation Critic hotel expert, receive a four- or five-star editorial and review rating and be recommended by at least 75 percent of families who reviewed it.

"These winners represent hotels that truly excel as family-friendly properties," said Family Vacation Critic editor-in-chief Lissa Poirot in a statement. "Because awards are only given to hotels that receive a high rating from both our team of experts and family travelers who have stayed at the property, the Family Vacation Critic Favorite Hotels designation offers parents a credible stamp of approval to use when searching for the perfect hotel for their family."

Together, the 2015 winners account for the top 12 percent of the site's hotels.

Below you'll find the top-rated family hotels for each region: 

California - The Wayfarer, Santa Barbara
