Sun, sea, sand… and screaming kids? While holidaying with the little ones can be fun, let’s face it – for a genuinely relaxing break you have to go without them. And thankfully, there’s no shortage of adults-only hotels aiming to provide a more peaceful time away. Here are the best child-free hotels around the Canary Islands.

This adults-only luxury hotel is located in the popular Playa de Ingles resort on the south end of Gran Canaria, a short stroll from its sandy beach. Its 67 high-tech guest rooms are finished in colourful and funky styling, with a contemporary opulence that really sets in the mood – with the help of some tweakable atmospheric lighting. The hotel’s secluded gardens are filled with exotic flora, there’s a spa for couples’ pampering and a rooftop restaurant provides the perfect spot for candlelit dinner for two.

Opened in 2016, this Fuerteventuras adults-only hotel has a boutique-style atmosphere that is understandably popular with couples. No shortage of Bali beds around the pool means guests can luxuriate in comfort, with the option of a bottle of chilled champagne to really set the mood. The chain’s signature Despacio Thalasso Centre offers a range of hydrotherapy treatments, plus couples’ massages, while the restaurant offers an open-air terrace for alfresco dinners for two.

Originally part of a building designed by celebrated Canarian artist and architect César Manrique, this adults-only Lanzarote hotels takes luxury to the next level. Most of the 25 high-end suites open onto terraces with fabulous ocean views, with some also adding whirlpool tubs for alfresco soaking. Upscale amenities include Nespresso machines, smart TVs and private wine bars. The entire hotel gleams a pure, clean white and is set around a super-swish sea-view swimming pool. It’s ultimately a contender for the best hotel in the whole of the Canaries.

Crisp whites and Art Deco flourishes brings more than a little Miami vibe to Gran Canaria at this trendy adults-only hotel. The retro cool continues into its 133 rooms, which combine kitsch touches with modern amenities and plenty of outside space, some with views over Maspalomas’ stunning dunes. Comforts such as pillow menus, speedy free wifi and kitchenettes make for accommodation you won’t want to leave, though a chic swimming pool and the hotel’s Wellness Cottage (specialising in treatments for two) provide good reasons to leave your room, at least for a while.

Set in a 17th-century typically Canarian manor house with earth-red walls, immaculately tasteful styling and period charm in spades, the Hotel San Roque is hands down one of the finest on Tenerife. Individually styled rooms are brimming with original touches such as Rennie Mackintosh furniture, while some feature whirlpool tubs; the suite, set in the watchtower, boasts a rooftop terrace with sea views. A lovely secluded courtyard has a swimming pool and an alfresco dining patio, but to top it all, as an adults-only hotel it makes the perfect setting for a romantic break for two.

Opened in just 2015, this boutique-size hotel is certainly one of the more funky and contemporary on the island, and is located just a couple of minutes’ walk from pretty Las Canteras beach on Gran Canaria’s north coast. This adults-only property is kept suitably conducive to romancing couples with some of the 10 guest rooms opening onto decked terraces with lovely sea views. For indoor snuggling, the suite has a super-comfy sofa and massive flatscreen TV, lights can be switched to set the mood and bathrobes come as standard; breakfast can also be served in-room for couples who’d rather not get out of bed.
