Checklist to find the best family-friendly resorts in Spain
The most important part of planning a holiday is choosing your accommodation. Since there are so many family-friendly resorts in Spain, you’ll have a great variety to choose from. But what makes a resort great? How do you pick the right one? Here are a few things to take heed of when choosing a family-friendly resort.

Location, location, location

If you don’t plan to spend all your time at the resort, make sure it’s in an accessible location. Do you want to be near the beach? Near the city? Close to public transport and amenities? Or would you prefer something more secluded? Find out what a good location means to you and book accordingly.


Age-appropriate activities

If your kids are at different ages, book a resort that caters to all of them. If you have younger children, make sure the resort has a children’s program and a play-park. Teens will enjoy teen-oriented activities like sports, swimming and games. If you’re looking forward to some ‘me time’, most family-friendly resorts in Spain have babysitting facilities, which means you can book that couple’s massage without worrying.


Dining options

If you’re at a resort, chances are you’re going to have most of your meals there. Most family-friendly resorts in Spain have restaurants with a kid’s menu, which is a big plus if your kids are finicky eaters. Restaurants with buffet options are great for kids of all ages, as it offers a wide variety, and potentially healthier choices. If you have any special requests or diet restrictions, call the resort in advance to find out if they can accommodate you.


Choose the right room

Whether it’s a fancy suite or a standard room, make sure the accommodations you choose fits your family’s needs. Depending on the type of resort you’re staying at, there might be apartment-styled rooms with kitchenettes or bungalows with a fully equipped kitchen which always comes in handy when you have younger children. If your kids are at an age where it’s easier to bath than shower, make sure the accommodation offers that. Size, room facilities like aircon and heating, access to Wi-Fi, and child-safety are also things to take into consideration.   


Services and facilities

The right kind of facilities and services are so important when it comes to choosing accommodation for a family holiday. Is there a swimming pool? A gym? A spa? A laundry service? Do they offer a shuttle service? Some family-friendly resorts in Spain even have in-house salons and pet services. Some facilities might be more important to you than others, you might not be interested in an in-house hair salon or library but you’ll gladly make use of a tennis court. Most of the major hotel booking engines allow you to specify certain amenities when you're searching, which makes the booking process a whole lot easier.



When choosing a resort, it will be in your best interest to choose a place with entertainment facilities. Some family-friendly resorts in Spain have daily shows for visitors of all ages, including magic, dance, and music shows. Certain resorts also offer themed evenings, poolside activities, game evenings and sports events.
