The Spanish islands are a popular destination for families looking for a relaxing, fun-filled holiday. With their warm all-year climate, rich heritage and culture, sandy beaches and delicious local cuisine, the whole family will love Spain’s Atlantic and Mediterranean island resorts. If you want to enjoy all the benefits of a Spanish holiday without the worry of finding family-friendly restaurants or budgeting for sports activities and kid’s clubs, then an all-inclusive hotel might be the perfect option for you.
All-inclusive hotels offer a fixed price for accommodation, meals, drinks and activities. This means you can indulge in as much or as little as you want, without having to worry about extra costs or hidden fees. All-inclusive hotels are ideal if you want to spend quality time with your loved ones, enjoy a variety of entertainment and activities and explore the local area at your own pace. Here are our suggestions for the best all-inclusive hotels in Spain for families – and what to do when you’re there.

The best family-friendly resorts on Spain’s Balearic Islands
The Balearic Islands are a group of Spanish islands in the western Mediterranean Sea. The three main islands, Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza, are some of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. And no wonder, as they all boast a warm welcome and an even warmer climate, making the Balearics an excellent choice for a family holiday during the autumn holidays.
Mallorca is an ideal getaway for families who want to have fun and discover new things together. You can enjoy the stunning beaches, explore the amazing caves, visit the aquariums and water parks or go sailing. Our choice of the best all-inclusive family hotel on the island is the TUI BLUE Grupotel Mallorca Mar in the eastern resort of Cala Bona. From chic studios and one-bedroom flats to spacious two-bed apartments, the hotel’s flexible accommodation is designed for families of all sizes. All feature satellite TV, the all-important Wi-Fi and air-conditioning. Whatever your choice of accommodation, you’ll enjoy in-room facilities such as a kitchenette, microwave and hob as well as cooking utensils, dishes, and cutlery.
Ibiza is a vibrant island with a world-famous music and party scene. But did you know there’s also a hidden side of the island that offers tranquillity and tradition? That makes Ibiza the perfect choice for families who want to experience the best of both worlds, from relaxing on one of more than 80 beaches on the island to exploring hippie markets in historic towns. Being an island, you’re never far from the sea on Ibiza. In fact, having fun on and in the crystal-clear waters is a popular choice for families; boat tours of the coast, snorkelling in the bays, kayaking, canoeing or just messing around on a pedal boat.
We think the TUI BLUE Tarida Beach is the best family-friendly hotel in Ibiza with all-inclusive services and facilities. Situated on a gently sloping bay in Cala Tarida in the southwest of the island, the resort is the perfect place to enjoy a wonderful, sandy beach holiday, and more. If you and your family prefer to relax next to the swimming pool, there’s a choice of six on the hotel’s grounds including leisure pools for adults and kids, splash parks, spa pools and separate whirlpools. And if you want a pool right next to your terrace, the hotel even offers luxurious swim-up rooms!
Have a fun-packed, family-friendly holiday on the Canary Islands
The Canary Islands lie 62 miles (100 km) west of Morocco and are an autonomous region of Spain. If you and your family want to enjoy all-year sun, stunning landscapes and a choice of exciting activities and excursions, then the Canaries are an ideal choice. In fact, family holidays in the Canaries are never boring!
One of the most popular islands of the group is Gran Canaria, which offers a variety of attractions and activities for children of all ages. Here are some of our favourites:
- Go on a dolphin or whale watching excursion, or take a trip on one of the glass bottom ferries connecting ports across the island.
- Get your kids’ adrenaline pumping with more than 40 different slides at the Aqualand Maspalomas water park.
- Discover Gran Canaria’s wild natural beauty and diverse flora and fauna on one of the island’s hiking trails.
- Visit the birds, reptiles and mammals at Palmitos Park zoo. With interactive shows featuring exotic animals, your kids will love seeing and learning more about them.
- Take a camel ride through the dunes of Maspalomas. The whole family will enjoy the beauty of the desert landscape while feeling the gentle sway of the camel train.
- Travel back to America’s wild west at Sioux City! Originally built as a western film set, the theme park now hosts daily shows and interactive exhibits for the whole family.
Gran Canaria is a family-friendly destination that will deliver unforgettable experiences. And our choice of all-inclusive holiday hotel for families will make your stay even more enjoyable. The TUI BLUE Las Pitas welcomes the whole family. Kids can enjoy their own pool with a slide and choose their favourite food from the children’s buffet. And adults can look forward to enjoying a game of tennis or a relaxing treatment at the spa. And after dinner, everyone can come together for evening entertainment designed with families in mind.
