While holidaying as a family, two things can really help – self-catering facilities and a little extra space. If you book yourself into an apartment in this swanky hotel, that’s what you’ll get, with the superior two-bedroom unit sleeping up to five and having an up-to-date kitchenette and a balcony. Head to the rooftop to soak in the hot tub before reclining on a Bali bed – though this is probably best without the kids.

    Casa Mozart, in the city’s leafy Ciudad Jardín neighbourhood, feels more like a guesthouse than a hotel. It has just five rooms, all decorated with a mix of modern and antique furnishings; a shared kitchen, lounge and dining room add to the family-friendly, home-from-home atmosphere. A healthy breakfast is also served each morning, with an emphasis on island ingredients. When you’re ready for some sand between your toes, Alcaravaneras Beach is just a five-minute stroll away.
