If you have a large family it can be a nightmare finding a suitable holiday to cater for everyone There’s not just the question of where to stay, there’s the issue of making sure there’s enough to do to keep kids of all age ranges entertained, as well as the parents and perhaps even the grandparents.
Choosing the right destination and accommodation is key to making sure your family holiday goes as smoothly as possible. The first thing to consider is how long you want to fly for. If you’ve got very young children or babies then a long haul flight could be a complete nightmare. However, that doesn’t mean you should have to miss out on some well-earned sunshine. A better option therefore could be to take a holiday to the Canary Islands.
Lanzarote for instance is around four hours flight time from most UK airports so it’s a lot less daunting than a long-haul trip to somewhere further afield, but you can still guarantee good weather almost all of the year round. The spring time here has lovely, mild weather of 20-25°C, which many families find more manageable than the height of summer, where temperatures can reach up to 30°C. Even in winter you are unlikely to be cold or miserable during the day time, so it’s a good option if you can’t afford a break in the middle of peak summer months, which is something that applies to a lot of large families with so many other financial demands.
As well as somewhere accessible and with the right climate, a prime concern when you’re booking a family holiday is to make sure the entertainment is family-orientated and the accommodation is family-friendly, particularly if you have a large family. The Costa Teguise area of Lanzarote is fast becoming known as the ideal location for families and couples alike, without the more rowdy and lager-loutish tendencies of some other package holiday destinations you could go to. The Sands Beach Resort Lanzarote is a recommended family hotel in this area, with easy access to the beach, entertainment laid on for children, and no big groups of drunken partygoers.
With its many sandy beaches and laid-back atmosphere, the Costa Teguise is known for being one of the more upmarket, classy venues within Lanzarote, which is ideal if you want a holiday where your family all feels safe and relaxed. Many of the beaches in Costa Teguise have children’s activity parks and there’s a large waterpark which makes for a fun family day out too. Some of the restaurants even let children eat free in the evenings, so it really is a very welcoming place for a large family to take a break.
