If you’re ready to set your countdown and book up your next escape, you won’t want to miss our round-up of top destinations for families this summer.

Lanzarote, one of the beautiful Canary Islands, is just ideal for families who crave sunshine all year round. It combines classic beach days with dramatic volcanic landscapes, not to mention the most incredible range of family-friendly hotels to give you the perfect holiday experience. Lanzarote’s location is just 100 miles off the coast of Africa, meaning you can expect warm temperatures whichever month you choose.

For a fabulous family holiday, we recommend a stay at Holiday Village Lanzarote. This place is designed for families who love a mixture of chilling in serene surroundings and getting involved with fun and exciting activities on their holiday. There’s a splash park the kids will love, three delicious restaurants and plenty of entertainment from morning to night. No matter what age your kids are, Holiday Village Lanzarote will give you a trip to remember!


Take to the sandy shores of Egypt and prepare for a sizzling hot summer adventure! This dreamy destination is a favourite among families because of its beautiful, clear waters and larger than life hotels. The kids will be fascinated by the incredible history of the country and the whole family can get on board with the likes of excursions, water sports and refreshing dips in the Red Sea. With so much to do and see, Egypt never misses the mark!

When you’re planning a family holiday to Egypt, we recommend you check out Coral Sea Water World. If your family loves to make a splash, you’ll simply fall in love with this place. The hotel is on the beach, it has two large pools and even its own waterpark filled with attractions, from thrilling chutes to a lazy river. Throw in great entertainment, three restaurants and a swim-up bar, and there you have it – a holiday in paradise!

Gran Canaria

One of our favourite island destinations is gorgeous Gran Canaria. It’s another of the Canaries, so you can expect glorious weather whenever you visit. Families will be able to take their summer holiday to Gran Canaria at any pace that suits them – there’s plenty to do, but also endless spots to relax and enjoy quality time together. The island is filled with natural beauty yet still has plenty of fun things to explore, from waterparks to rolling sand dunes.

There are so many fantastic family hotels in Gran Canaria, but a stand-out is the amazing TUI BLUE Orquidea. When it comes to family holidays, you simply can’t top a TUI BLUE For Families hotel – they’ve thought of everything you could possibly need for a holiday that runs smoothly and offers fun for everyone. Think kids’ clubs, non-stop entertainment, spacious pools and baby facilities. This heavenly hotel is the perfect place to make memories that last a lifetime.


Sunny Cyprus is famous for its sensational food and drink scene, world-class beaches and glistening waters just perfect for swimming in. It has all the elements of a fabulous family escape – especially in the warmer summer months. Whether you opt to hire a car and explore the island or simply spend your days unwinding in a beautiful beachside hotel, you’ll find this dreamy destination ideal for your family getaway.

The Holiday Village Aliathon is the ultimate family hotel in Cyprus. It offers plenty of practical facilities along with a huge range of exhilarating activities for the kids to get involved with. They could play in the splash park (complete with a pirate ship!), swim in Cyprus’ largest pool or even take on an aerial adventure course. In or out of the water, the kids are bound to fall in love with this family-friendly hotel.


Ah, Majorca! This beautiful Balearic island has long been one of our most-loved summer destinations. It’s a family favourite for so many reasons – the speedy flight time, the wonderful hotels, the soft, sandy beaches and the gorgeous scenery to name just a few. Being in the Mediterranean, you can expect lovely warm temperatures in the summer months – a big splash of sunshine will make that precious family time even more special.

Family hotels are certainly not in short supply in Majorca. One we particularly love is the Protur Bonaire Aparthotel. With spacious family apartments and a few different pools to choose from, the kids won’t ever want to leave. The beautiful beach and nearest harbour are just a short walk away from the hotel if you do fancy a day exploring the surrounding area though – it’s win-win!


Looking for a summer holiday where the sun is hot, hot, hot and the fun never ends? Turkey is the place for you. Southwestern hotspots like Antalya and cities like Izmir on the Aegean coast are just bursting with family hotels that take five-star service to the next level. You’ll be kept amused by twisting, turning water slides, and the sprawling beaches offer up the perfect place to chill out and top up your tan by bright blue waters. Total holiday perfection!

The ultimate hotel for an action-packed family holiday to Turkey is TUI BLUE Ephesus. Its facilities are outstanding and it sits on its own private beach. You’ll never go hungry here – the food and drink scene is spectacular, with two restaurants and a selection of bars, from beach bars to snack bars. The main attraction though (especially for the kids!) will undoubtedly be the waterpark. Kids of all ages will be amused for hours here, with a pirate ship for the youngsters to play on and more thrilling chutes for the older kids.


Tenerife has long been one of our customers’ favourite destinations. It offers families a fabulous all-round holiday with exhilarating excursions to embark on along with dreamy hotels that have all the sun, sea and sand you could need. The colossal Mount Teide National Park is a must-visit for days out exploring, and the world-famous Siam Park will offer thrills and chills that never end.

With Siam Park in mind, one of our best recommendations for family hotels in Tenerife is Villa Mandi and Siam Park. This friendly hotel in Los Cristianos is the perfect base for your family adventure. When you stay here, you get unlimited access to Siam Park, and there’s a shuttle bus you can hop on to get to the beach for when you fancy a chilled day. With spacious rooms, fun entertainment and tasty food, you’ll have all you need!
