Close to the beach, natural parks, the best aquaparks; Perfectly situated with connections with the airports and highways; With spacious and modern spaces where comfort is the top priority … Family hotels offer clear advantages over others focused on group travel, alone or with a couple, and today we will present some of those who, year after year, are among the most valued.


Summer holidays are the children’s vacation. And so, when we organize our journey, we must think of them before anyone else: they need adequate space to unleash their inexhaustible energy, vitality and adventure, and we need a little peace, relaxation and free time. How to get all that? Choosing well the destination and the hotel. Something that is not as simple as it seems …


That is why, in this article, we have reviewed some of the hotels for family travel within Spain that have received the best reviews in recent years. Most belong to large hotel chains (Melià, IBEROSTAR, Barceló …) but we also introduce a couple of new accommodations, some smaller, less known, that have made a good impression.




The Mallorcan group that has become famous all over the world for being one of the most specialised hotel chains in beach resorts (although lately it has opened in great urban destinations like Madrid) is one of those that appears more often in the mind of the traveller when talking about reliable family hotels, with good service and average price.


Most of their hotels suitable for children are located in top destinations and meet the best conditions for parents who want a place to take advantage of the days with their children … without giving up relaxation and some freedom. Among the most celebrated are the IBEROSTAR Royal Andalus, a family hotel with spa in Chiclana very close to golf courses and the magnificent beaches of southern Andalusia.



The best hotels for children tend more and more to resemble amusement parks: with games and a thousand adventures within the accommodation.


Another of the most celebrated family hotels on the Costa Adeje is the IBEROSTAR Torviscas Playa, famous for its good value for money. Finally, within the group, we have to mention the hotel suitable for kids in Playa Jandía, Fuerteventura, IBEROSTAR Playa Gaviotas Park. And a if you are able to afford something a bit more expensive (5-star hotel however) the All Inclusive IBEROSTAR Anthelia.




Hear “Flintstones hotels” and know that many parents breathe easy. Yes, the Melià  group years ago gave us the key and knew how to create those hotels which children dream of and in which the parents, finally rest. They are hotels inspired by the cartoon series that gives them their name: The Flintstones, where everything, absolutely everything revolves around the Flintstones family and their fantasy world.


The children’s menu is served in special dining rooms for children who are always taken care of and entertained by their monitors; The rooms are themed, the mini club and parks (both aquatic and gardens) recreations of the streets and the houses in that prehistoric world in which the series was created and there are games for all the family.


These hotels for children are spread over the main family destinations of Spain: Menorca, southern Andalusia, Canaries … And their rates, although they are slightly higher than those of a normal family hotel, are adjusted because of the variety of facilities, services and the added value they bring.


Pirate Adventure


Among the new and lesser-known hotels for children, we find in Mallorca the firm Gran Isla Hoteles that manages the Pirates Bay and Pirates Village Apartments, two pirate-inspired establishments and decorated as if they were theme parks, with aquatic games in the Pools, gardens, solarium areas and a long list of services for the little ones.


They are hotels that have a unique type entertainment, that look for the faithful public and hope that each year, everyone, young and old can live an adventure in its lodging. In fact, its successful formula is based on the fact that many are those who want to go to that hotel and no other because nobody offers anything like it.


The idea of ​​turning the classic family hotel into an amusement park at all levels has been emulated by Melià with its Sol Kathmandu Park, which has also followed the trend of the craze of themed hotels.


The most competitive offers for these types of hotels for families will always be on the official websites of the chains that manage them or on the hotel’s own web page. The booking process is done directly with the establishment and eliminates the costs of the middle man.
