The Best Family-Friendly Hotels in the Canary Islands

Picture of Leon Beckenham
Updated: 15 January 2018
It’s no secret that the Canary Islands have more than their fair share of family-friendly resorts, but which hotels cater best to couples with kids? We took a look around the seven isles of this volcanic Atlantic archipelago and picked out a selection of the best places to stay with nippers in tow.

This five-star Ritz-Carlton property excels on most fronts, but particularly stands out as one of the best high-end, family-friendly hotels on the island. The hotel’s Ritz Kids club introduces the little ones to the natural world, as well as a wide range of immersive and exciting activities seven days a week. The complex also offers a total of 10 restaurants, so everyone’s tastes are catered for, including everything from specially-designed kids’ menus to two Michelin-starred options (though best to take advantage of the hotel’s babysitting service for these).

The Hotel Cordial Mogán Playa is set in the picturesque valley and just minutes away from the beach in Puerto de Mogán – a charming resort on the sunny south side of Gran Canaria dubbed ‘Little Venice’. The hotel itself is more like a small village, distinctly Canarian in style with various accommodation blocks, four restaurants, two pools and – most importantly – an excellent kids’ club for ages four to 12. It’s all set in tropical gardens with over 450 different plant species, plus for budding Indiana Joneses there’s an archaeological park on-site, part of an ancient necropolis that the hotel is built on.

At 530 rooms, this is certainly one of the larger family-friendly hotels on the island of Lanzarote, and with plentiful facilities to boot. The architecture is Spanish hacienda-inspired, and there’s a distinctively Iberian feel to this sprawling resort and palm-dotted sub-tropical gardens. A kids’ club caters to ages four to 11, and features its own playground, pool and sandpit, as well as daily activities that range from t-shirt painting to sand sculpting.
