Spain is a beautiful destination for a holiday and it can be a great place to take children. If you’re looking to take that perfect yet cheap holiday in Spain, here are three fantastic child friendly hotels the country has to offer.
Although it may not seem like your go-to island for a family friendly trip, Ibiza is an incredible place to visit even if you’re not interested in the night life. The more secluded areas on Ibiza are beautiful to explore and if you have a toddler or baby, Can Gall in the quieter part of Ibiza is a great place to stay. The selection of pools has a non slip edging and a shallow slope rather than steps into the pool so they are especially safe for kids and some rooms have enclosed gardens so children can play outside so you can relax without having to worry about their whereabouts. A play tent with toys can be set up in the garden on request. The beach is only a 10-15 minute drive away so not too far for the kids to travel on a daily basis. Nannies and babysitters are available on request if you do fancy sampling the Ibiza nightlife.
Another great child friendly Spanish destination is the Barceló Varadero Apartments on the island of Tenerife. The apartments are great for families because they have all the amenities of a complex but also the freedom of an apartment, which is ideal for young children. There are three large swimming pools and a separate children’s pool. A wide range of shops and restaurants are in walking distance so food and fun for the whole family is just an easy walk away. On site there is a playground as well as children’s activities during the day and a mini disco at night.
Caserio del Mirador Apartments on the east coast of mainland Spain are perfect if you’re looking for a rural, secluded holiday destination but still want access to all of your everyday family needs. Valencia is in close visiting distance and has a lot to see and do, with beautiful architecture and a vibrant nightlife. A popular children’s attraction to visit is Gulliver, a playground that looks like a 60ft giant lying down, with slides for children cleverly added into the folds of his clothes. The largest of the Caserio del Mirador apartments on offer, Santa Maria, has a double room for parents and a twin room for children. It has a spacious living area and 2 bathrooms, one of which has a bath which is useful if bathing your children is usually part of their bedtime routine.
Wherever you decide go to in Spain for your holiday, you can guarantee that one thing is the kids will love is the beach, so don’t forget to pack your bucket and spade!
