Things to do

Is it even a family holiday if you’re not slipping (and squealing) down a waterslide or two? Siam Park takes water parks to the next level. Fortunately, IDILIQ’s family hotels in Tenerife are close... to the award-winning attraction with its lazy rivers, wave lagoons and freefall slides. They’re also a short hop from Mount Teide, the highest peak in Spain. It’s laced with hiking trails, but little ones will want to catch the cable car up instead. The views are spectacular by day and night (when stargazers assemble). For lazy days, the safe, sandy beaches of southern Tenerife deliver in buckets and spades.

Food and Drink

Children will love the choice of snack bars for ice cream stops, and mums and dads the plentiful poolside bars and restaurants. The best family hotels in Tenerife know how to keep everyone sweet, and our ... resorts are no exception. Stay on an all-inclusive basis to make the most of our wining and dining options. Flip-flop from sunny breakfasts with ocean views to laid-back lunches (and cooling cocktails) at poolside pitstops, where soggy bottoms are welcome. End the day with lively al fresco dinners, lingering over gourmet à la carte menus stuffed with local delicacies or tucking into family favourites.

Kids Clubs

Making new friends and having independent adventures are all part of the holiday experience for little ones. Supervised kids’ clubs are included as part of your stay at IDILIQ’s family ... hotels in Tenerife. Children aged between four and 11 can enjoy free daily access to Mini Clubs, where experienced staff ensure a fun-filled time. Expect age-specific team sports, art-and-craft sessions, outdoor adventures and movie nights. Add playgrounds, outdoor games for older offspring, and evening entertainment, and there is a lot to like about our Tenerife family hotels.

Swimming Pools

Water-soaked fun tops the list for most family holidays, and Tenerife is a top location for it. With large outdoor pools for laps and children’s pools for splash-happy little ones to let loose in, our family hotels in Tenerife... ensure everyone has a good time. Set within gorgeous flower-filled grounds with plenty of loungers and shade, our pools are supervised by lifeguards. Some are heated in the winter months, so you can make the most of Tenerife’s year-round sunshine. Enjoy time splashing about together or sink into a daybed while the children are happily ensconced in the kids’ club.


Imagine a family holiday with all the comforts of home and the added extras of a fabulous hotel. Welcome to IDILIQ’s family hotels in Tenerife.

Which part of Tenerife is best for families?

Tenerife is a terrific destination for family holidays, jam-packed with things to see and do to suit all ages and interests. Beach babes and thrill-seekers will find the southern part of the island more to their liking with its golden shores, copious water sports, whale-watching boat trips and fun attractions like the brilliant Siam Park water park. Costa Adeje and Los Cristianos make great bases for families to enjoy the region. However, Tenerife is super-easy to get around, so excursions to explore the remote cave-house villages, surreal dragon trees and colour-filled towns of the north are manageable day trips.

Is Tenerife good for a family holiday?

Absolutely. Home to some of Europe’s best family hotels and resorts, Tenerife is ideal for both relaxing escapes (while the little ones are entertained in kids’ clubs) and activity-packed adventures. Aside from its beaches, the year-round warm weather is one of the main reasons why this Canary Island has become a firm family favourite. Those with younger children can make the most of breaks here outside of the school holidays, enjoying cheaper flights, quieter beaches and guaranteed sunny days. Those with older children will find the island has oodles of activities to entertain even the most hard-to-please tweens or teens.

What is there to do for families in Tenerife?

You can go from building sandcastles on golden shores and watching dolphins splash about in waves to walking through moonscapes and staring at faraway galaxies in dark skies on Tenerife family holidays. The island’s diverse coastline is dotted with safe, sandy beaches and lapped by glittering waters where endless activities await. IDILIQ hotels in Tenerife are close to water parks, golf courses and fuss-free places to eat, while inland, the Teide National Park beckons for mind-blowing adventures around its volcanic landscapes. There are some excellent Tenerife resorts for families where adults can unwind and kids be unleashed.

What is the best month to go to Tenerife for a family holiday?

Located just off the west coast of Africa in the Atlantic, the Canary Islands enjoy a subtropical climate with virtually guaranteed sunshine all year. This makes Tenerife’s family-friendly hotels and sun-kissed beaches a top choice for holidays year-round. July and August are when the island is at its busiest and hottest. The shoulder-season months of March, April, May, October and November are a great time to visit with cheaper flights and less crowds. But beach holidays are on the agenda in winter too, with an average temperature of 22 °C from December to February and six hours of sunshine a day.

Which part of Tenerife has the best beaches for families?

The largest island in the archipelago, Tenerife is renowned for its beaches, from sun-dappled golden shores to cliff-backed black volcanic coves. The most popular soft-sand stretches are found in the southwest around Costa Adeje, Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos. With fine sands, blue waters and chiringuitos (beach bars), Playa del Duque, Playa Las Vistas and Playa del Camisón are a few gems. The wide, unspoilt stretch of Playa de la Tejita in the south is fab for water sports. To the north, the beaches are generally wilder and more remote, making them less suitable for children.
