Bahia Principe Fantasia Tenerife

Los Zocos Club Resort Lanzarote
Best for… unwinding
At this heavenly resort on Lanzarote’s beautiful eastern shore, you’ll find it easy to lose yourself in the leafy tropical gardens and beside the tranquil pools. But the spa and therapy centre is on hand if you need a little help, offering mind-, body- and soul-balancing treatments. From football to volleyball, entertainment to gourmet restaurants, there’s plenty in its extensive grounds to restore you; Lanzarote’s magical green caves, volcanic pools and moonscape national parks are a short day trip away.
Costa Teguise, Las PalmasBook with easyJet Holidays
Stella Village Crete
Best for… a seaside break
A quintessentially Cretan seaside village – with the added draw of an amphitheatre, pirate pool, water park and spa. Next to gorgeous Analipsi beach, its elegant rooms have views of the sea, surrounding mountains and lush tropical gardens that wind around the swimming pools. The seaside Mediterranean restaurant and pool bar is a gorgeous place to relax while the kids are at the mini club – or to show off your moves after dark to an 80s dance soundtrack.

Marni Village Crete
Best for… views
It doesn't get much better than this: a sublimely tranquil resort overlooking Hersonissos bay, made up of Mediterranean gardens, tiled villas and still infinity pools. Whether you opt for an apartment or your own house, a private pool or sea-view suite, rooms are fully equipped for a family stay. Nearby Koutouloufari, with its dreamy alleys and white sand beaches, is a wonderful day trip, and is dotted with gorgeous tavernas and restaurants for those evenings when you can’t be bothered to cook.

Leonardo Kolymbia Resort Rhodes
Best for… a five star stay
Jaw-dropping views – of the coast’s rugged mountains, Mediterranean forests or the sea – come as standard at this luxury beachfront resort. From the poolside loungers to the flower gardens, everything is immaculate – including the Blue Flag beach itself, just metres from the hotel and wonderful for snorkelling. Nighttime entertainment at the on-site amphitheatre, a mini disco for the kids and the refined terrace bar mean there’s plenty still to do after you’ve enjoyed that spectacular island sunset.

Best for… the American dream
A slice of vintage Americana right on the white-sand shore of the Costa Calma, this huge resort has some of the best ocean views on the island. It's best-known for its enormous pools, which wind like palm-fringed lagoons through its beautiful gardens, adventure playgrounds and mini golf courses. If you can tear yourself away from your lounger, there's a host of restaurants and bars to explore – including the much-loved diner-style à la carte.
