Only a short walk from the centre of lively Sunny Beach, this apartment complex lines a spacious swimming pool with adjoining poolside bar. There’s a separate children’s pool and play area, and in a family one-bedroom apartment you’re treated to your own kitchenette for preparing DIY dining any time of day. Self-catering is a good option to save too.
Open-plan family rooms at this coastal hotel offer brilliant sea views as well as easy access to a popular swimming pool. There are retro games machines and a pool table if you’re feeling competitive, but with the beach on your doorstep and a children’s section of the pool to enjoy, it’s unlikely you’ll want to spend too much time indoors.
As well as comfortable accommodation in this Thomson Scene hotel, enjoy a fantastic pool scene at the top of Malia’s buzzing nightlife strip. Mum and Dad will enjoy the swim-up bar, while kids will be pleased with the close proximity to gorgeous nearby beaches.
If you’re keen to jet off in the summer holidays but aren’t looking to make it a family affair, head to the Odysseus to make the most of Kavos’ nightlife with on-site Scene rep service in the heart of the main strip. The pool bar is 24-hour and there’s a chill-out den and gym to make the most of too, if you can tear yourself from the beach only 50 metres away.
As well as a playground for the kids to let loose in, this apartment complex boasts a pool and football pitch, beach volleyball space, table tennis and basketball. The accommodation here is simple but stunning, sat on the outskirts of peaceful Sidari – only a short walk from the local shops and town centre, and a short tax ride to several stunning beaches.
A family apartment in this sunny patch of Gran Canaria puts you a five-minute walk from both the beach and the centre of Patalavaca. The seaview pool will please most people, and stylish accommodation comes with kitchenettes and flat screen TVs as standard. If you don’t fancy cooking for the family, enjoy fabulous food at the on-site restaurant or venture out for affordable eating in the town.
