Most families travelling to Tenerife opt to stay in the south-west, which is heavily developed. This has both drawbacks and advantages – there are heaps of kids' activities, for instance. If you do chose to base yourselves in the south-west, we recommend Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos over noisier Playa de las Américas. Other southern resorts are Playa de Los Cristianos, Costa Adeje, Los Gigantes, Puerto Santiago, Las Galletas and El Médano. 

Most properties offered by our partner James Villa Holidays are in the south-west, too. All have pools and are near beaches and entertainment while being peaceful, secluded retreats. Alternatively, try further up the unspoilt west coast.

If you'd prefer to stay in the north, we recommend the Hotel Botanico and Oriental Spa Garden (see below) or the one-, two- or three-bedroom apartments at Villa Costa Azul at Playa San Marco. 

The following are our hand-picked favourites for a range of budgets, or if you're looking to book a luxury family resort or villa holiday in Tenerife, contact our tailor-made travel consultants on 020 3633 0653 or via our enquiry form.
