Holiday Recommendations for Family Holiday

Found 16th Feb 2011
We usually holiday in the UK these days but were thinking of going to Menorca or similar for a week in the school summer holidays. My son is 5 and we would like somewhere that has lots to do for kids.

Has anyone been anywhere that they can recommend? Ideally 4* and definitely with a pool and preferably other things to do too.

I know I should start trawling through the travel brochures but it's hard to choose one from another!

Tenerife, used to go when i was a kid, loved it, great family holiday

hi, we went to the almirante farragut in menorca last year in may two weeks. Was lovely only a cove of a beach but lovely pools, all inc, kids excellent clubroom i think was 1-5 daily and games round the pool as an alternative ..then evening kids club i think 6 of 7 days a week til late! the clubroom was all bnew purpose built and the games were proper organised like race night, bingo etc...no running round getting sweaty and wild for no reason iykwim..
not far from airport i think 30mins all in...we got flights/hotel/transfer seperate but i know there are packages but it just worked out cheaper for us as i wanted 2 rooms (we had adjoining)
The staff were excellent..the area isnt that pretty i mean ust tourist tat but plenty places to visit and buses cheap or taxis.

Don't go to Santo Tomas in Menorca! Dead quiet there.

Paphos in Cyprus is one of the best places I've been. Lovely weather, loads to do, would really recommend.

Try the Bouganvilla in Sa Coma, Mallorca. Great for the kids.

H10 Lanzarote Gardens in Costa Teguise was excellent for children.

sorry but im going to have to disagree with this. went to paphos last year 2weeks, stayed in Olympus Villas, absolutely stunning beaches, very beautiful weather (extremely hot), but sadly very little to nothing for the kids as its more or less towns / villages based in the centre of what i recall to be 'wasteland'. In my opinion cyprus is more of an adult holiday. There are a fair few beautiful places to visit and if your a big drinker Ayia napas the place to go. Dont get me wrong it was a great holiday, but sadly i recommend other places for a family holiday.
