Top 3 Places For A Family Holiday

There’s nothing better than a family holiday. It can sometimes be tricky choosing a destination that will appeal to everyone, especially if you have young children and grandparents to keep entertained, but there’s plenty of incredible places all over the world that are perfect for all types of families.

The wide choice of resorts available to apartments4you customers means that we have got everything covered when it comes to catering for families. Self-catering accommodation is usually more spacious than hotel rooms, and come complete with all the home comforts a family needs, including kitchen facilities, giving you a great dining in option if you would rather not eat out every day. That way, you can take your time and enjoy your holiday at your own pace.

Here are three of our top destinations for a great family holiday.

Tenerife

If you are looking for a family holiday that combines sun, sea and sand, Tenerife ticks all the boxes. With year-round sun, you can spend days at the beach, even in the winter when there’s snow on the ground in the UK – not many destinations are only a four-hour flight away from the UK can offer that.

The south of the island is packed with tourist hotspots and beaches. If you relish fine dining and meandering gently through ancient streets then the beautiful Old Town of Adeje is probably your kind of place. The north is much more quintessentially Spanish, with beautiful old churches, interesting architecture, and plenty of restaurants serving traditional Spanish cuisine to savour a long and delicious meal. Lago Martianez, a beautiful and artful man-made lagoon, provides safe bathing, sun loungers, parasols and refreshments, just steps away from the attractive and sophisticated centre of Puerto de la Cruz.

Tenerife is a small island – you can drive the whole way around it in a day, comfortably – but it packs in more variety of landscape and holiday experiences per square mile than most other destinations I can think of.

Europe’s biggest water park, Siam Park, is one of the best family` days out in Tenerife. The Thai-themed water park is a world-class attraction. From the adrenaline junkies to those who prefer to keep their feet a little closer to the ground, Siam Park should definitely have something to please.

In the north of the island, Puerto de la Cruz is not only an elegant holiday base, but also home to Loro Parque, which happens to be one of the best attractions on the island for all ages. This zoo is home to hundreds of birds, mammals and fish, including dolphins, orcas, various species of monkeys and lots of different types of birds, notably its many colourful chatty and friendly parrots. You can even get a picture holding a parrot, which comes highly recommended.

Florida

Orlando in Florida – the US Sunshine State – is home to the greatest theme parks in the world! You’ll be pushed to find a more family-orientated holiday destination anywhere, and there really is something for everyone here, from the young to the young at heart.

Whether you’re skipping down Main Street in the Magic Kingdom or buying your Hogwarts’ robes in Madam Malkin’s Robes for all Occasions in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, there’s something truly magical about the Walt Disney World and Universal Studios parks.

Away from the parks there is so much to do, you could fill a whole other holiday if Disney princesses and wizards are not really your thing.

Spend evenings exploring Celebration Florida – another Walt Disney brainchild – filled with shops, restaurants and entertainment. Marvel at the dolphins in SeaWorld; or fly down a water slide in one of the many waterparks; or dispose of your holiday spends in a designer outlet. There’s so much fun to be had in Orlando, both inside and outside the famous theme parks.

The Sunshine State is more than just its capital. Daytona is one of the best places in the US for families, as there is so much to do. You can’t possibly think about going to Daytona without visiting the beach. There are over 20 miles of sand to play, walk and sunbathe on, so pick your spot and enjoy some of the warm Florida sunshine.

There is something rather nostalgic about a beach boardwalk and pier, and Daytona’s is the heartland of the city. Restaurants, shops, exciting thrill-rides and arcades make this a fantastic place to spend holiday time with the children.

Mexico

Mexico is often overlooked as a family holiday destination, but it is a perfect place to escape for a week or two away in the sun. Many of the resorts available are filled with so many activities, having round-the-clock entertainment for all ages, you don’t even have to leave the resort with your little ones – or older ones – to have a good time on this holiday.

Emporio Hotel & Suites, Mexico

If you do want to venture off-site, Mexico has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, including Playacar, which runs along the front of the resort. The crystal-clear Caribbean sea is perfect for snorkelling and scuba-diving if you have older children who want to meet the local marine life.

There are also the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá – one of the New Seven Wonders of the World – to explore. With its iconic pyramid architecture, this ancient place of worship provides a fascinating insight into Mayan culture and is a place that both young and old will find intriguing. It is a definite must-do day out.

Mexico is a destination that is rich in history, with plenty of sunshine and great beaches – what more could you want from a holiday?
