Overseas – Family Friendly & All Inclusive

Gran Canaria

Paradise Lago Taurito Hotel & Aquapark, Playa Taurito

“Lovely, it’s in a cove and about another 2/3 hotels in the same area, it has a massive water park in the centre and the beach is about a 1/2 min walk.”  SL, Jan 18

“We always go to Paradise hotel Lago Taurito on Gran Canaria.  On site water park is always a winner with my two.” CL, June 18


C’an Picafort

Zafiro Mallorca and Zafiro C’an Picafort

The downsides listed for these hotels are a long 2hr transfer and there is not much to do in the resort.

“Both great family hotels. Great location as about 10 minutes walk to the beach. Think the C’an Picafort one had slightly better children’s pools/playgrounds etc. We thoroughly enjoyed the holiday.”  JD, Oct 18

“great kids club, slides, children’s activity pool, loads of daytime & evening activities (we barely saw the kids) and the staff were really friendly and helpful.  15min walk to the beach. Definitely recommend.”  KD, Oct 18

“I’ve stayed at that exact hotel with a 22 month old and it was great. Loved it! Would definitely recommend!! “ CLL, Oct 18

“In July we were at Zafiro Mallorca we had a brilliant time defo recommend it – our girls are 4 and 7 they loved it! Rooms were great, food was great, drinks were great 😉, girls enjoyed the entertainment!”  RH, Oct 18

C’an Picafort – “It was perfect…couldn’t fault it. Beautiful food and immaculately clean. Would highly recommend.”  DR, Oct 18

Ca’n Picafort – “Was excellent and better than holiday villages. Would definitely go back if we wanted to do all inclusive again. Perfect for kids.”  BD, Oct 18

“Second Zafiro, we went to Zafiro Mallorca last year and it was fantastic, not any big slides but they have a big inflatable bubble in the pool which my son loved.  Only downside was the kids club but loads of kids activities around the pool.”  JK, Jan 19“Second Zafiro, we went to Zafiro Mallorca last year and it was fantastic, not any big slides but they have a big inflatable bubble in the pool which my son loved.  Only downside was the kids club but loads of kids activities around the pool.”  JK, Jan 19



Zafiro Palmanova

“Would recommend Zafiro Palmanova” SS, Jun 18



Zafiro Palace and Zafiro Tropic, Alcudia

“Loved it! Highly recommend it! So much to do in the water for the little ones!”  GW, Oct 18

“We stayed at Zafiro Alcudia a couple of years ago and Zafiro C’an Picafort this year, couldn’t fault either of them. Great children’s pools and lots of other pools to choose from. Lovely food and the kids entertainment is really good. We had the luxury of swim up rooms too which were fantastic for snoozing babies, meant they could have a lovely peaceful nap while we relaxed and had a swim if we wanted to.”  JE, Oct 18

“We stayed in the one in C’an Picafort and the Viva tropic in Alcudia.  Both fab hotels but we preferred Alcudia as a resort because the beach is better it’s gorgeous and the sea is shallower and the resort is better in general.”  CT, Oct 18


Club Mac Alcudia Resort & Waterpark, Alcudia

“We were sent there because our hotel was overbooked for two days,  I loved it.  There’s a water park too sure you get a free pass as part of the holiday package.”  JM, Jan 18

“I second Club Mac, fab place for families, I’d love to go back.  Make sure you take the bus to the beach one day, it’s a lovely beach! Apparently the market is fab.”  LM, Jan 18

“Just across the road is the waterpark, we went on the free bus to the beach and the main town centre is 15 minutes walk if that.  There’s quite a bit to do on site and the all inclusive food was really nice.”  HT, Jan 18

“The food isn’t great, but there is an on-site waterpark which is brilliant.”  KM, Jan 18

“Water park over road, beach is a 10 min walk away, kids will love it as well as adults!” HJB, Feb 18

“I have to agree on Club Mac. The only negative is Alcudia is quite far from Palma airport but the hotel and Alcudia itself is amazing. Beach is 👌🏻” LMC, Feb 18


Cala D’or

Prinsotel Alba, Cala D’or

Cala Millor

Holiday Village Majorca, Cala Millor

Magic Natura Animal Waterpark & Polynesian Lodge Resort, Benidorm

“Great for little ones, lots to keep them busy and you get a lodge with rooms.” CAP, Jan 18

“Amazing family resort, access to water park and huge zoo.” JC, Jan 18

“ It’s on the very outskirts of Benidorm but don’t let that put you off! It’s joined to the Terra Nautra zoo & water park & you get free unlimited access. It’s a lodge resort too rather than tiny rooms. My 6 & 1 yr olds loved it.” GW Jan 19

Magic Robin Hood, Benidorm

“We got back early hours and are re-booking we loved it.” KH, May 18

Great for kids, loads for them to do.” NN, Jul 18

“We visited Robin Hood one night on a trip from our hotel great show but we did think hotel was a bit out of the way if you didn’t have a car, they do put buses on to take you to the other hotels most days.” HH, Feb 18


Benalmadena, Costa del Sol

Holiday Village, Benalmadena

“Holiday villages are amazing, we loved Benalmadena worth every penny” EB, Feb 18

“It was amazing! My little boy loved the Holiday Village in Benalmadena. The pirate ship and football academy especially. The pool is great for little ones isn’t it, so thought it would be ideal for baby’s first holiday.” RF, Feb 18

“Holiday village Benalmadena best hotel I’ve been too.” EB, Feb 18

“I second that, loved it.” AP, Feb 18


Playa de las Americas

Parque La Paz, Playa de las Americas

“All inclusive hotel, the food was lovely and had a big pool and a kids pool too, it had kids entertainment on a night and through out the day.  Beach was a 5/10 minute walk down the road and Siam park (waterpark) was a 10 minute taxi ride. Although they do offer a bus to the park too.”  KR, Jan 18

Bitacora Hotel, Playa de las Americas

“We have just come back from Hotel Bitacora and it was fantastic, hotel was spotlessly clean, and staff were so helpful and welcoming and great with the kids, food was fantastic lots of choice for the kids, brilliant pools and a soft play area and huge park. It’s in the perfect location close to all the shops and beach but also nice and quiet.” EL, July 18

“You can walk into the town, down to the beachfront etc. Would pick Bitacora again, as we like to have a wander.” LH, July 18


Costa Adeje

Bahia Principe, Costa Adeje

“Highly recommended it’s got everything.” LM, July 18

“It is a nicer hotel, more restaurants etc. But it’s a 10-15 drive to anywhere. There’s nothing outside the hotel door, it’s completely on its own on a cliff.” LH, July 18


Costa Los Gigantes

Holiday Village, Costa Los Gigantes

“Amazing and our boys are 5 & 8. Absolutely loved it. It’s sometimes called The Be Live Costa Los Gigantes (depending on time of year)” VS, June 18
