Family-friendly places to stay in Spain

Self-catering villas have long been popular for family holidays in mainland Spain and on its islands, while apartments can be a similarly flexible choice in resorts or large cities. Otherwise, there’s plenty of choice of child-friendly hotels and holiday villages, some with kids’ clubs. 

Specific to Spain and very reasonably priced given the quality, paradors are state-run hotels often set in beautifully restored historic buildings such as palaces, monasteries, medieval castles or Arab fortresses. Most have restaurants serving traditional Spanish food, including kids’ favourites, and some have children’s play areas.  We love the Parador de Jarandilla de la Vera in the Extremaduran countryside west of Madrid. A medieval castle that was once home to Emperor Charles V, it has a pool, a garden full of orange and olive trees, and a restaurant serving the likes of suckling pig and repápalos (deep-fried breadcrumb balls with milk and cinnamon).

Spain is also a good country for motorhoming or camping, or there's a good selection of family activity and adventure holidays – see the Trips tab.
